Soda for Breakfast

Posted by firstman2006 on March 30, 2007

Lizzie and I went to CD’s Place in Boyertown for breakfast this morning after going to the gym for a workout. CD's Place, Boyertown, PALizzie is starting Jenny Craig this week, so this will be the last time for about 6 weeks that she will be able to eat at CD’s. We both ate relatively healthy breakfasts, and both left some grub on our plates.

The worst thing about my breakfast was the soda that I had with it. Lizzie too had a soda(Diet Coke), but upon looking at the soda selection, I noticed the Mello Yello tab on the soda machine was still on, and Pam, our outstanding waitress verified it was still available. Usually soda is not my choice for breakfast, but would rather have an apple juice or OJ. Since this is the last Mello Yello that will be delivered to CD’s Place, I had to partake.

Prior to taking my first sip of the delightful Mello Yello, I had to promise myself that I would not make the same mistake as the previous time I drank it, and sing the Mello Yello ditty to myself. Pam chastised me last time because she was then singing it for the rest of the day.

Hello Mello Yello…or Goodbye

Posted by firstman2006 on March 9, 2007

Went to breakfast this morning at CD’s Place diner in Boyertown, as we do on many mornings. Last time I had been in, Chris, the owner, had some sad news for the kids. He was in possession of the last box of Mello Yello soda syrup that he Mello Yello soda picwould be receiving from his distributor. Mello Yello is being phased out and the new soda is Vault. So this morning instead of ordering coffee, I ordered a large Mello Yello, since it could very well be the last time I will be able to have it. As a kid, I had drank it on numerous occasions, but as an adult, my carbonated beverage consumption has reduced considerably. When I do drink a carbonated beverage, or a soda, it will more than likely be a cola. I’m a Pepsi fan, Lizzie swears by Coke. So even though it was quite sweet, I drank the Mello Yello while eating my swiss-mushroom omelet with whole grained bread and cottage fries. If you get a chance to get over to CD’s grab a Mello Yello while you can. If you find some available in the stores, you might want to stock up and get ready for the Mello Yello frenzy.

Restaurant and Entertainment Reviews

Posted by firstman2006 on February 10, 2007

We just started a new blog that will be the place for all of my positive Restaurant reviews, negative ones will be on this blog. We (Lizzie Bean) will be doing healthy eating site reviews on Lizzie Bean’s new Dieting Blog, Fatladysingz.com.

The url of this blog maybe changing also, since we regsiter the domain Myrectalthermometer.com and installed a wordpress script on it. Just have to get around to finding a template. I would like to start using a thermometer to rate postings, that kind of looks like a cartoon but with a themometer coming out of it. And depending upon how negative the post would be would indicate how negative a post it would be. Not sure of the scale…US uses Farenheight and most of the rest of the world uses Celsius. Might just use a 1-10 rating. Ten being really sucky like George Bush, which would be the most negative, and 1 being mildly annoying, kind of like Gilbert Godfrey. Of course this is all in my head, totally conceptual, but if there are any good artists out there who would like to submit graphics, I can give you some press and links, and maybe a little dinero. I tried making one in my simple art program, but it was truly embarassing.

Boyertown?

Posted by firstman2006 on December 30, 2006

Boyertown? Where the heck is Boyertown, PA? Boyertown is located about 2 hours North of Philadelphia, with a population of just around 4000, it is a small town that has a very close proximity to larger metropolitan areas. Boyertowns main industry at one time was a casket company, but closed with in the last decade.  Retail stores within five miles of Boyertown include a Super Walmart in Bechtelsville, a strip mall that once included a Ames and is now empty. There is also a Redners grocery store, and a Weis Market located in nearby Gilberstville.

Boyertown has dining restaurants that range from fine dining experiences to fast food of McDonalds.  The  town of Boyertown also has many little diners ( CD’s Place being one of my favorites).  From Mexican to  Italian, Boyertown has a good variety  of ethnic  foods.  If feeling a bit more adventurous, visitors can even venture out to  local farmers market/flea  market, Zerns which is located  in  nearby Gilbertsville.

Boyertown also has  a bit of importance in history in that a nearby mine is where  Thomas Edison got his ore for his light bulb experiments.

Throught out the year, Boyertown has many different festivals and community events.  One of my favorite local sites is the local portal, Myboyertown.com, which is a site that aspires to be a leader in the Boyertown community with many great features to include an online contest that encourages participants to visit businesses in the Boyertown area.

Boyertown is a great little town with lots of activities for all. With a great location, if looking to relocate, to the Philadelphia area, its a great candidate for relocation due to great facilities and Real Estate prices that a very reasonable. If you plan on visiting Boyertown, leave a message. If you are from Boyertown and would like to comment, please do so also.

Italian Food – Boyertown

Fine Italian Dining in Boyertown

Sausage Marinara

On Mondays my favorite hangout in Boyertown is Durangos Saloon on Mainstreet in Boyertown. Durango’s is by far our favorite restaurant to dine at in Boyertown due to the fine dining and a great selection of beer that they have on tap. The head chef who frequently walks around the establishment, is always making sure that the patrons are satisfied. If you stop in, get the Sausage Marinara, it is one of my favorites.
