Bridal Shower Suggestions in Montgomery County

I had my bridal shower at Villa Barolo in Warrington and they did a fantastic job. As for your criteria....

Location: It's approximately 10 miles north of Jenkintown and is right on Rt. 611

Bar: There is a separate bar area, with TV's.

Private Room: I don't know how many private rooms they have but they have at least one, and it was more than big enough to accommodate all my shower guests.

Food: The food at my shower was sit down and not buffet style, but they may offer buffet style. I didn't plan my shower, so I don't know for sure if they do or don't. Either way, the food there is EXCELLENT. Chef Lo does an awesome job and you won't be disappointed.

If Warrington is too far out of the way or if you simply want a second recommendation, try Buena Via in Horsham. We had our rehearsal dinner there and loved it. As for your criteria...

Location: It's about 6 miles North of Jenkintown and right off of 611.

Bar: There is a separate bar area downstairs for the guys.

Private room: The upstairs can be reserved for private events and it has two rooms. It has one larger room, with a balcony, and then one smaller room with windows and a television. You could probably have the main shower activities in the larger room and stick the guys in the smaller room with the TV to watch the game. For our rehearsal dinner, all of the guys hung out in the smaller room watching the NHL Playoffs on TV.

Food: We had a sit down rehearsal dinner but they may do buffet style as well. I don't know for sure because my in-law's did all of the planning for our rehearsal dinner. It's an Italian restaurant so they serve your basic Italian fare and everything we had at our rehearsal dinner was excellent. They also do separate kids meals too.

So hope this helps with your shower planning!

Buffalo Milk

Hi! I just started making my own mozzarella cheese and I would love to make it with buffalo milk. Problem is, I don't know where to get buffalo milk in the Philly area. I know Hillside Farms in Telford (Montgomery Co.) raises buffalo and sells all sorts of buffalo meat products from steaks to bologna...but they don't sell the milk. Anyone know where I can find some in the greater Philly area? Thanks!

Roadside Diner or Dive Reccomendation (1-80, Indiana)

Hello! I will be traveling on I-80 through the Great Lakes Region in a couple of months, and was wondering if there are any good places just off I-80 in Indiana for a quick lunch? The place doesn't need to be a diner, nor a dive just somplace not too fancy that has great food. Any suggestions would be appreciated!
