Backdoor Tavern

June 22, 2021


If you are 30 or over, I want you to take a moment and think about your younger/college years. Think about the selection you had and prices you paid for beer and liquor. Think about the drink specials and happy hours that presented themselves. Personally, I was in Happy Valley from 2002 to 2006. During that time, I enjoyed drink …

Famous Ray’s Deli


If you are Italian, anytime you hear there is Prosciutto, Capocollo, or Soppressata around, it sparks your interest. These Italian meats are delicious because they are dry cured/aged which requires a lot of time and effort. Even though you are going to pay a pretty penny for these meats, most will say it is well worth it. Ray’s Deli in …

Breezy’s Pizza


Growing up in Aliquippa, Pennsylvania, my grandfather always enjoyed picking up pizza. A World War II vet, he was tough, stern, and very opinionated in his decision-making. When it came to pizza, he had a very particular and rather unusual criteria. He wanted to see the pizza being made out in the open. He thought that making the pizza behind …

Zooky’s Sports Tavern

June 22, 2021


Fallston, Pennsylvania, nestled deep in the heartland of Beaver County.  I’ve been hearing for ages that you have to try the wings at Zooky’s Sports Tavern.  If you talk to our parent’s generation (I’m 35), they’ll tell you that chicken wings were actually not at all in demand back in the day; they would give them away or simply throw …

Good amount of Crispness. The sauces Talk …
