I just think it's nice for a small town like Old Forge to have some sort of "claim to fame"; this is similar to my hometown of Pittston calling itself the "World's Quality Tomato Capital", even having a weeklong annual festival, parade, tomato fights, 5K run, pageants, bands, etc. It's little nuances like these that help our small towns to form their own "uniqueness" and "identities", which are becoming more and more uncommon in our newer suburban areas that seem to lack the same "charm." Whether you like Old Forge pizza or not, you still have to admit that for a town of just 8,000 residents, Old Forge probably has the highest amount of Italian restaurants per capita in all of NEPA!
Yes, that's all well and good, but Duo's Deep Dish in Chicago is to salivate for, and Brutico's is OK, in a saucy-kind of way, but I still like SAlerno's.
It's one of the places I go when I come up to work at my siblings' and my establishment for the holidays. Kelly's has really good wings.......
Can't wait to see Taylor - OF (hint-hint). Am really thinking of leaving the sunny south and traveling I-81 to Davis Street!
SWB - your major would be ... ?

Howdy! Hints well taken! LOL! Expect my next photo thread to be of Old Forge/Taylor/Moosic (The Tri-Boro), but don't expect to see it until next week as this weekend is very hectic with my sister's wedding, a family reunion, and cramming for mid-terms! My majors are Accounting and Finance (I know...I know..."wasted potential!" LOL!)

Default DE Water Gap / Stroudsburg area?

Hello Paul -

I know this wasn't a choice & it's not NE PA, but if you ever get down to the Delaware Water Gap area, I'd love to see pics. Haven't been there for 4-yrs or so. About time to return, I'd say. Since you live in-state, I'm guessing it will happen with you, before me!

Thank you for your pics/posts.

Just my 2-cents...
Thank you... Baltic_Celt

Not necessarily "wasted potential" - depends what you do after your Master's. Hope your sister's wedding had the same gloriuos fall day as here in Carolina country.

I know you're attending class and learning about the fine profession of accounting and finance.......You do know that there are several online Master's programs for when you parlay this into a full-time job........
