I must admit I'm shocked a search for "fireworks" returned zero results on this forum....

So I'm wondering if anyone has a lot of experience buying fireworks in eastern PA and can advise where is the best place to buy them?  And why is it the best?
I've bought them in PA several times but always feel like I'm just getting suckered in to the giant stores with the highway billboards.  They all sell similar items with their own branding and they are running constant "sales".  It's like Kohls... if it's not at least 50% off, you're paying more than you would at any other store.  I'll be taking a 5-7 day trip through Philly, Lancaster, York/Hanover/Hershey, and possibly Scranton area soon so I am willing to try just abot any fireworks store in these parts of PA.

Thanks!

Deals/Deal Requests / 101 free prints from shutterfly and more
« on: July 03, 2019, 09:49:16 AM »
Use the code PRINTS for 101 free 4X6 or 4X4 prints and also 1 16X20 print and 2 8X10 prints

To save on shipping, order 100 prints rather than 101!  You can see the shipping charges depend on how many prints you get and if you get 100 its at the top of one price point, where as 101 prints is at the bottom of the next~ this might save you $1.

pelleh poultry started making all kinds of duck products, your avg. corner grocery wont carry them but the big stores (that need stuff to fill their shelves up) should have them http://pellehpoultry.com/products/duck-fat/ But be prepared for the insane price

Alternatively you can get tons of duck fat when cooking duck at home, 1 duck breast can render like a whole cup of fat! can save it in the fridge for months

Just FYI the Pelleh duck sausage is fantastic.  We pan fry it with peppers or put it in our cholent sometimes.

Lamb Riblets were really good they had some special gnocchi that was Delicious, i will prob get a lot of heat for saying this but i wouldn't call mikes steaks great!

TBH I thought Mike's steaks were good but probably overpriced by 20%.

I'm going to Nobo for the first time this week.... I know that several of the menu items are peoples favorites here on Dansdeals. 

1.  Is there anything on the menu that is "nothing special"?  I want to make sure to avoid such an item for the first visit.
2.  Are the lamb riblets significantly better than the other appetizers?  I really enjoy sausage & peppers but if the riblets are really that good...
3.  Are the steaks anything close to Mike's Bistro?  The prices are not so much less.  Looking at the 20oz rib eye...

Thanks.

Credit Cards And Finance / Chase Ink Employee Cards
« on: March 14, 2019, 12:41:26 PM »
Does anyone know if it's possible to add cards to an Ink account without a specific name/SSN attached?  Such as a card for each department in a business that just says "Purchasing Dept" or "Sales Team" rather than an individual's name?  Or do I need to put the manager's name and order a new card every time dept management changes?  Thanks.

Iím going to Dougies for lunch tomorrow with some relatives. I probably wonít go again for several years. What would you order if you were me?  Iíll probably want multiple courses or sides since I eat out so rarely.

I decided to revisit this thread just for fun and I found a post I made in 2013...

Monsey is the only place I've lived in that had 10x appreciation over the past 30 years and that's because people who buy in Monsey are nuts :)

Happens to be I'm now officially nuts... I bought a house in "Monsey" (Chestnut Ridge) over the summer.

I just reread every post in this thread going back to November and I don't think I saw anything about Wolf and Lamb.  I'll be in the city next week for dinner by myself somewhere around 50th and Lexington.  I have never been to W&L or Mike's Bistro.  Is there a significant difference in price or quality between the two?  Where do I go and what do I order?

I'm planning to meet up with some old friends in Manhattan in late December.  I haven't been to the city in a few years, but I've eaten at La Marais several times and would rather try something new.  Is there one or two fleishig restaurants uptown that really stand out above the rest?  I think the last place I ate at was that tappas restaurant that closed a few years ago.

So it seems plans have changed and we'll be meeting somewhere in "midtown south or east".  What's my best fleishig option?  Some of these guys aren't Jewish so would prefer a place with a "nice restaurant" feel (ie not too heimishe).

Did you catch how he subtley equated climate skeptics with flat earthers?

No, I didn't see that.  That's only conjecture.  There's no evidence to show that he did such a thing.  Anyone who says there is evidence is part of the conspiracy and not to be trusted, despite what the experts, scientists, and academics will tell you about whether or not he equated climate skeptics with flat earthers....   ::)

Go to Best Buy itís  free

I haven't set foot in Best Buy in a decade at least, they're typically a ripoff.  But regardless, why would they still have games from the late 1990s?

Download an emulator and buy some USB N64 or PS controllers.

I don't live in the city, and we're meeting there because two of the guys live there.  But I think they want to go out rather than host in their apartments.  I guess it's an option if they're OK with it.

I'm not sure a place like this even exists, but if it does I'm sure it's in NYC....

I'm wondering if there are any places (doesn't have to be kosher) where you can play old video games (NOT arcade games).  Something similar to Barcade (www.barcadenewyork.com),  but for N64, Playstation, etc. where you'd pay for time spent on the games.  I haven't found anything via google. Has anyone heard of a place like that?

I'm meeting up with some childhood friends and one of the things we always talk about was the hours spent on N64 and Playstation - I thought it'd be fund if we could actually play them again.
If we can't find such a place, we'll probably try Barcade.

He builds larger than life replicas of weapons from video games, fantasy novels, etc.  And posts very long youtube videos showing the process.

So I don't think anyone's posted about this yet - a quick search for "sherpa" didn't turn up anything.  Anyway, I thought this might belong in the trip planning forum but couldn't figure out what thread to put it in.  I'll leave that up to the experts.

A few years ago I posted in the Alaska Master Thread about a friend who was on a year-long RV trip with his family.  It ended up being 3 years. 

A friend of mine has been RVing for the past 12 months with his family all over the western US, Canada, and Alaska.  He's also a professional photographer so he has some nice shots if you are interested in seeing them.  This link takes you to the day or two before they entered Alaska, but day 1 started in Monsey and there's a "Trip Map" page with an interactive google map so you can find any day from that map.

http://lookbeforeyoulive.com/?p=4770

The reason I'm posting now is because he's opened a business running guided RV tours, and RV trip planning services for the kosher consumer.  Given the positive responses in the Alaska thread I'd guess there are some DDers who might be interested in this.  Check it out:

And here's his blog where he documented basically every RV trip he's taken in the past decade.

Just an update...  My friend (Ben) has opened a business for running guided RV tours, as well as RV trip planning services.  He has tremendous RV experience and knows how to see and do a lot on a shoestring budget.  The website for the new business is http://koshersherpa.com/

Are you able (physically and legally) to make Coke cap ones? I'd buy those in a minute.

Not legally  :). I got harassed by a lawyer for Heineken for doing that last year.  But I will check if I have any Coke caps left and PM you if I do.
