All Season Fun at Roundtop Mountain Resort


Roundtop Mountain Resort has been a mainstay in Central Pennsylvania for over 50 years. The reason for their continued success? Turning their traditionally winter-focused ski resort into an all year-round experience for families. When most think of Roundtop Mountain Resort, skiing down the slopes probably comes to mind.

Hellenic Kouzina - The Best Greek Food in Central PA


The best Greek food in all of Central PA – in any season. Last Friday night we met some friends for dinner at Hellenic Kouzina, a relatively new place that has a serious following, located in a former bank building just beyond downtown Mechanicsburg (500 East Main St, Mechanicsburg). Imagine my surprise to see the recent renovations come to life. A waterfall wall divides the new inside seating area, a fireplace on the back wall and attentive servers greet you to tell you how the expanded area works. You still get in line to place your order, get a buzzer to call you when your food is up, but the servers now seat you and take your buzzer and bring your food to you when it's done. The attentive servers continue to remember that you are there dining and refill water glasses. The servers will also go get your dessert order so you don’t have to stand in line.
