Yardz Goes The Distance

Over the summer, I would occasionally drive by the old Eat’n Park in Enola, where it was clear a new establishment was going in. In recent years, the building was host to several different restaurants, but none of them seemed to have staying power. I was excited to see the progression of Enola’s newest restaurant, Yardz Bar & Grill, but even more excited to see the final product.

A Peaceful Retreat

Earlier this week, I visited Heel Your Sole’s new location at the Rossmoyne Business Park in Mechanicsburg. They are located in a small strip shopping center directly in front of the new TownePlace Suites, which makes it easy for hotel guests to take an hour out of their busy schedule and relax with a treatment or two in this peaceful sanctuary.  I experienced a Healing Touch session, which is a hands-on energy therapy designed to promote health and healing. The room was private and calming and the treatment provided relaxation and a sense of peace. Heel Your Sole also offers other wellness services including a variety of pampering foot treatments, massage therapy, and reflexology. If you are looking for quiet retreat during the holiday season, you will not be disappointed with a visit to Heel Your Sole.

Where Are You Watching the Game?

Mid-Late October is one the absolute best times to be a sports fan. The NFL and College Football are within the first two months of a new season, the NHL and NBA are just starting their new seasons, and MLB in it’s postseason. It is the only month that all four major sports organizations have meaningful games, which means there’s a plethora of sports to watch. You can try and use picture-in-picture feature or the previous channel button on your remote, but you’re likely missing out on that 60-yard touchdown pass or that incredible walk-off homerun.

Carlisle House Bed & Breakfast

If you are familiar with the historic town of Carlisle, you know that there is only one Bed & Breakfast located in the borough.  What you may not know is this cozy B&B is also listed on the Select Registry.

I was able to experience the hospitality of Carlisle House B&B owners Alan and Mary first hand during a recent conference.  I was assigned to collect the conference members each morning after breakfast and get them to where they needed to go.  Being the generous hosts that they are, Alan and Mary invited me to join them for breakfast.

Cooking Classes at The Kitchen Shoppe

Okay, okay, I know that we've already written about cooking classes at The Kitchen Shoppe,  but I attended another class, and it's worth writing about - again.

If you missed the first blog about The Kitchen Shoppe's cooking classes, here is what you need to know: The Kitchen Shoppe is a super kitchen store with almost any kitchen gadget, accessory or tool you ever imagined.  You can also purchase gourmet food and teas, as well as talk with the staff for advice and tips. 

In addition to the products, The Kitchen Shoppe also offers cooking classes in two different formats - demonstration and hands-on.  Both are taught in a cozy classroom setting with lots of mirrors so you can easily watch the cook from any seat in the room.
