Friday Foodstuffs – 10.24.08: Go Phillies!!!

Oh yes – I am NOT an impartial viewer of this year’s World Series. I was not a happy man watching the Phils leave 57 gazillion runners on base last night. Come on Howard…let’s go!

Anyway, in the spirit of the Phils making the Series for the first time since 1993 (darn that Joe Carter!),

some local restaurants, at the request of the Courier-Post, have created sandwiches that are Phillies-themed. Care for a Phillies Phever sandwich? Or maybe a Cole Turkey sandwich?

The Festivals of Food schedule is a little lighter this weekend. The one event that we’d like to go to is the Italian Festival at Bellview Winery in Landisville. The festival is taking place tomorrow and Sunday. With Baby #2 soon to make her appearance, we’re going to be close to home getting the house ready.

In addition to the Italian Festival, you have the Olde Tyme Harvest Festival in Middle Township and an Octoberfest festival taking place in Sea Isle City, both down in Cape May County. If Cape May County is a bit too far for you, there’s also going to be Harvest Festival on Sunday at Croft Farm in Cherry Hill.

What’s one of the best parts of the apple season? Apple cider, or course!

Christina Mitchell of the Courier-Post has her regular roundup of restaurant rumblings around the Burlington, Camden and Gloucester county areas. Always a good source to keep up on what’s opening, what’s closing and what’s moving.

Beer lovers, listen up: Iron Hill Brewery and Restaurant is planning to open a new place in Maple Shade. The opening is scheduled for May 2009.

The Asbury Park Press has a nice story about a group of people from the Sonata Bay Club adult community in Berkeley that call themselves the Golden Givers. They have put together a cookbook called Treasured Recipes Sonata Bay Club, and are using the proceeds to help the needy in the area.

And…guess who just turned 45? The Easy-Bake Oven! And what would be a great way to celebrate? Well, you know…

Have a great weekend!

– John

  1. I have been to the Iron Hill in Phoenixville – the food is excellent, especially the French Onion Soup and the burgers. Glad to hear one will be closer to where I live.
