Touring Amusement Parks, want good chow in PA, VA, MD

Dorney Park Day...try the Grille 3501, either lunch or dinner. It is excellent, and
it almost sits in Dorney Park's backyard....just a few minutes away.

thanks for the websites.

Lunch in Detroit near the Ambassador Bridge

Thanks for the replies. I've never been to the area, is it easy to get to from I-75 and how bad is the construction area ? Mexicantown sounds like a good stop on the way home (PA) too. Whats the best time to cross the bridge, somehow avoiding too much traffic ? Thanks again !!

Lunch in Detroit near the Ambassador Bridge

Just bought Flax Seed, now what?

when grinding flax seeds, you should use it within 15
minutes as it loses it's potency quickly

Tratfrat in Lebanon?

I'm West of Reading and the Fratelli is very good, been going there since it opened.
They do have a new chef. The previous chef opened the Amuse Bistro in Anneville,
food is very good. Their service needs some improvement. Amuse is a BYOB.
Nikos is in the old market house in Lebanon, also very good. great old building.

Reading, Pa - Gourmet groceries?

bluesuede...how did you like Russo's...I forgot about that place...it is much
better than it was...the Grande family now owns it. They use to have Casa Grande Restaurant. There is alot of good stuff at Russo's and they now make
prepared foods to go. They also make their own Italian sausage.

From Pete's Produce --The Best, Sweetest Corn I've Ever Tasted

The ketchup is very good, thick, with a nice flavor, they use their
Brandywine tomato in it. I used it Sat nite on grilled burgers and
after the burgers were gone I found my husband eating more ketchup with a spoon !! The other bottled item we like is their Vidallia onion/peppercorn dressing.
When does Pete's close for the season ? I may have to stock up on a few things for winter !!
