If you like to mix it up–we’ve got a show you’ll love!  Your taste buds will be treated to a delicious array of latin-based cuisine, Italian delicacies, and then woofing it up at Pennsylvania’s first bar and restaurant created specifically with you and your four-legged friends in mind!
Born in and raised in Ecuador, Veronica Fitzgerald moved to the US with her family in North Carolina as a teen. Growing up she was treated to her grandmother’s empanadas on a regular basis, eventually learning how to make them as well.  Years later, she treated her family and friends to her empanadas, and subsequently the pandemic inspired Veronica to create her business, V Empanadas. Soon thereafter, V-Empanada’s was a hit, and she opened a shop inside Lancaster County Farmers Market.  So, the next time you visit, be sure to check out Veronica’s freshly made Empanadas and scratch-made guacamole, sauces, and desserts when you’re there!
The best way to end a meal is with something a little sweet–something that Pastry Chefs Sally Gadea and her husband Jemil know a lot about. Both Allison and Jemil have years of experience working as Executive and/or Corporate Chefs for high-end restaurants over the years; a key aspect that has helped refine what they offer inside their Yardley, PA-based business, Panna Gelateria. Of course owning and running a business takes a lot of skills too–and the pair sought out help from SCORE in Bucks County, PA. to aid them in getting started.  So, a little help from their SCORE business mentor and the combined culinary pedigrees from both Chefs later…Panna Gelateria and Bakery was born.  Now, you can indulge your sweet & savory cravings when you visit Panna Gelateria. Their menu offerings will always keep you interested–they have an ever-changing menu of small-batch gelatos, pastries, and more!
Who let the dogs out?  Allison and Sam Mattiloa did! And they invited all of your (fully vaccinated and trained) pups to the party too!  Inspired by the pandemic to finally add a fur-baby to their family, Allison and Sam adopted Buda into their lives. But the pandemic lasted longer than anticipated, so the Brewerytown couple were fur-ther inspired to create a human and dog-friendly space to safely socialize. That space, called The Boozy Mutt, incorporates a bar, restaurant, and an indoors & outdoors space for pups and their fur-friends to play.  And if you haven’t caught the ball on the theme just yet–you can fetch some food and drinks for yourselves, order some treats for ”Fluffy” from their pet-friendly food menu, and let the paws hit the floor running at The Boozy Mutt! .  Just remember to reserve your day, month, or yearly pass for your furry friends before you visit

Jewish Perspectives on the News and Politics with Burt Siegel

This program will not hold back on what the host and his guests believe is wrong with an American society in which anti-Jewish sentiments as well as racism have become too often tolerated, where cooperation across party lines is treated as treachery, where immigrants and refugees are seen as a threat to the “American Way of Life” and the gap between the ultra wealthy and the average American is ever widening. While it will reflect the values of Judaism and the Democratic party all are welcomed to share their thoughts regarding how we can achieve the dream of what our nation aspires to be about.
