Land O'Lakes Pops a Stubby

I've found that the stubbies don't fit nicely under most butter dishes around here, which were designed to hold the slim sticks.

Between the Clorox and the Kitty Litter

Be happy if you even have the option to buy wine at the local corner store (or even BEER for that matter!). Here in Pennsylvania, we have the most draconian liquor laws this side of Utah.

Burst in Your Mouth

I wonder if this technique could be used with spirits. I'm envisioning the next generation jello shot!

Do you have more specific directions to Tacos Mi Tierra? I'm very intrigued!

Oh yeah! It bothers me to no end when I see that!! It also blows my mind that there's frequently an hour wait at the Olive Garden on a friday night. (The only reason I know is because I have a relative who insists on giving me an Olive Garden gift card for Christmas every year)

Scott's is very good, although I've only been there once for dinner. However, it is my favorite place in Harrisburg for happy hour.

I admit that I do not get out to eat very often outside the downtown Harrisburg area, but that's because I live and work right in town. My favorite Italian is probably Sammy's right across from the Capitol.

Who's got a good seafood restaurant recommendation?

I agree that the 2nd scene has gravitated more toward nightlife than dining, but I'm fine with that as long as other options remain. Perhaps I feel this way because I am a 20-something AND a foodie. I agree with all of profjmm's suggestions for the discrimiating palette; they are the tops in town.

I also agree with aldadshsta's assessment of ABC: so-so food and beer. However, the atmosphere in their facility is great, and they are basically the only place in town regularly promoting live music. Upstairs, they've got an excellent selection of Belgain Beers if that's your thing.

I've been impressed by Bayou, located on 2nd in Midtown a world away from the nightlife. They serve up unpretenious, tasty cajun and southern cooking. Their sunday brunch is fun as well.

Thank the gods we've got Troegs as well. Troegs has really developed into a top-notch brewery, as attested by the numerous awards their brews have won. Troegs is everything that ABC is not; they focus on the beer and just the beer. With such a quality product, there isn't much else for them to worry about.

Anybody else out there?

What's your take on Harriburg's ever-evolving restaurant scene? Winners? Losers? What's in store for the future?

What is the most useless thing in your kitchen you won't get rid of?

Msny bread machines can be used to knead and rise the dough without baking it!! Although swsidejim would probably call that cheating!

Fresh Out of the Oven

That's all well and good, but where the heck do you find liquid nitrogen, and how about a few recipes for after we do find it. Chow has been bringing some really innovative ideas to the internet culinary world, but you seem to regularly leave out a piece of the puzzle.
