Pappy's Pig Roast, Cape May, NJ -- any good?

Haha thanks! Yeah, well if it does end up close to 200 people - I'm sure we'll need two pigs. We could pose them nose to nose!

Thanks for your help!

Good idea - I'll look into it and price things out. Do you have an estimation as to how many pounds of pig per how many people?

Pappy's Pig Roast, Cape May, NJ -- any good?

Thanks! Wow that does look really good... It's for my wedding actually and we may have 200 people, so I probably need a more full-service party caterer ... but I'm gonna check out that place anyway just for my own chow pleasure...

Authentic Japanese Restaurants in Central NJ?

Ajihei on Chambers Street in Princeton. It's the only sushi place in Princeton owned by Japanese people. The California roll, made with real crab, is great, as is the lobster Cali roll.

Pappy's Pig Roast, Cape May, NJ -- any good?

I'm trying to plan a pig roast in New Jersey, and found the website for Pappy's in Cape May County. Has anyone used them, is the food good? I was going to call and try to see if I could go down for a tasting, but wasn't sure how they're be able to offer just a tasting of their roast pig... Was also interested in the clam bake option, if anyone has experience with that...

Cheese shop in Great Barrington?

Great thanks! I have been to Guido's and it is awesome, but do they have a seating area? I'm supposed to coordinate a bunch of people meeting up...

And Bizallion's sounds great too - will try to check it out!

Cheese shop in Great Barrington?

Wasn't sure if this or NE was the best place to ask, but someone told me about a great cheese shop that also served amazing grilled cheese sandwiches for lunch in Great Barrington, MA. I seem to recall the name Ruby's, but couldn't find anything when I googled it. Thanks!

Dining in Rehoboth Beach, DE?

for "casual eats" I like go fish on rehoboth ave, close to the boardwalk. I second everyone else's recommendations too!

Princeton/Hamilton area

I've never had anything good at Thai Village, but the new Thai place in Princeton, Tom Yum Goong is better. Still doesn't compare to places in Edison, North Brunswick etc. but good for Princeton.

romantic dinner near rehobeth beach

The Blue Moon and La La Land are both in Victorian houses with funky decor, romantic lighting... And I believe they both take reservations.

Redfin in Bethany is great and right on the bayside, but they don't take reservations though if it's this time of year (not summer) it might be fine...

big, fun, not-too-serious place for a party?

I second National Mechanics! My friend is friends with the owner and they threw an awesome birthday party - complete with strolling Dixieland jazz duo and Irish tenor crooning Heavy Metal covers (2 separate acts, not together!).

And I've always thought that North Bowl would be fun for a wedding or wedding-like event.

Fresh Lychee in Delaware?

Try Chow's Farm in Elsmere, 1211 Kirkwood Highway. I grew up in Delaware, and don't live there anymore, but I'm pretty sure it's still there.

Best Dive Near Princeton University?

None of those places listed above are dives.

With Rutt's Hut as a reference (a place that has spoiled me for ever eating a hot dog anywhere else http://thisisgonnabegood.blogspot.com...), I think the kind of place you're looking for is Chuck's Spring Street Cafe -- hot wings, burgers, deep-fried mini tacos, cheese fries. It's right around the corner from the Princeton Public Library, next to the parking garage.

MOVIES w/ food themes

I've read about that scene. They absolutely had to have it all be one take, so Tucci had to keep doing it until that flip was perfect. Of course you can tell that he does know what he's doing....

Ruth Reichl Talk at Princeton Last Night

It was an interesting theory, but you're right she didn't really offer up what's next for our society now that we've reached the point of conspicuous consumption and disguising of our food. Ideally the local farmers would rise up and overthrow P.F. Chang's right? Unfortunately, though, I think it's probably going to take something of catastrophic epidemic proportions to get this country to go back to eating locally grown sustainable food.

She did have a couple interesting answers to audience questions. She had talked about sumptuary laws imposed by the upper class to keep the middle classes in their place and one guy asked if she though the legislation banning foie gras in some cities was that (doesn't really make sense given that foie gras is an upper class food...), but she said no, she thinks it was a way for the vegetarian/animal rights movement to start with something they could win, set a precedent, and move on from there.
