Maps Restaurant AKA a Fantastic Foodie Voyage

Noms the word. Everyone, even the non pork lovers, agree that the bacon wrapped potatoes at Map’s Restaurant is worth going for seconds. The entire place is worth more than a second glance, though you wouldn’t guess it from the outside. An unassuming name, the inside is seaworthy and just on the right side of cheese and…

Shawnee Craft Brewery: The Throwback Tour

See where the food is grown, the beer brewed, and then sit down to dinner with the two. The grounds of the Shawnee Inn and Resort have everything you need for the perfect restaurant (though there’s a few on the grounds),  the Shawnee  Craft Brewery Company and the farm, which you can see in this post. Now…

Canteen 900 – Not for the Mundane

When polled, one out of 9 Whiskey Baconer’s say ‘meh’ while the regulars still consistently vote ‘yay’ on the Canteen 900 experience. It’s pretty hard to be disappointed by anything at Canteen 900, with a diverse, delicious menu of Mediterranean inspired dishes, a build your own flatbread menu, and daily specials that really are special. A lot of places just have…

Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort

We love people who love food, it’s a fact. The folks down at Shawnee Inn and Golf Resort really, really love both food and beer and doing great things with all of those. If you can get through me stumbling my way through the interview, you will see why we love Shawnee! Shawnee Inn and Golf…

What the Fork Truck: What the Forkin’ Awesome

What the Fork? I don’t think they even serve forks. Just sporks. But if all you want is to spoon bacon jam from the corners of a to go box,  you don’t need much else. What the Fork is one of the most forkin cool things to happen to NEPA in 2012. And Whiskey Beard…

Small Business Saturday with Eventful Moms (Or Where to go Last Minute Shopping)

For those last-minute Christmas shoppers – aka myself – shipping deadlines suck. However, taking twenty minutes to go to a store nearby and buy something great  –  maybe even handmade, locally sourced or just plain pretty – it’s totally brilliant. Often, what’s cheaper online is more expensive when you factor in those shipping costs. (Do…

No Peking…Chef!

It’s hard to go wrong with the food at Peking Chef. Pretty much any restaurant we’ve ever been to, there was at least one person was unhappy with at least one dish. But there’s never been a complaint. Once. (At least not that they would dare tell me.) It could be that Peking Chef is…

Kevin’s Bar & Restuarant

Kevin’s Bar and Restaurant…the most inappropriately named place you could ever visit in NEPA. The outside? Simple and unassuming. The name makes you think that it’s a neighborhood hangout. Wrong, very wrong. Kevin’s is more of a classic Chicago steakhouse. Dimly light, great beer, wine and cocktails, and dishes that will blow your mind! From…

Peculiar Culinary Company Pop Up 2.5

“There’s spots opened up for the Pop Up in the Park!” There’s nothing as exciting as getting in at the last minute to a dinner you were sure that you were going to miss, again. And be mournful about. Again. When I realized that we, Whiskey Bacon, could grabbed last minute open spots at the…

Aurants, Duryea oh Yay!

It’s hard to image how every local in NEPA isn’t aware of the restuarant serving sweet prosciutto banana pops, gouda smoked mac and cheese and bacon wrapped kiebasa. When like me, you’re not from here, it can take a few years to discover. The rest of the locals have had twenty plus years! To any local’s…
