maindinningroom1The Ashburner Inn Restaurant and Bar graciously invited OOT over for dinner. It is located at 8400 Torresdale Avenue, minutes from I-95. My guest and I were greeted by very friendly and courteous staff including Jane, the Bartender, who generously offered to make me a Chocolate Martini upon our arrival! Yummy and a great stress reliever; made with light and dark Godiva Chocolate Liquor. My guest had a couple of Blue Moons and we were ready to relax and have a great meal. Our waitress, Melissa, was in a happy holiday mood, as was most of the patrons that wined and dined this particular night. The place was beautifully decorated for the holidays giving it a nice ambiance.
Our chef, Hubert, suggested the Seafood Bisque Soup, my guest had the French Onion, both were $5.00 each and were hearty. Perfect for such a cold night. Our appetizers included their special Home-made Potato Skins with Bacon, Cheese & Blue Cheese on the side ($4.95) and the Stuffed Button Mushrooms with Crab Meat ($8.00). Very delicious and made just right! My guest ordered the 10 oz. New York Strip Steak, topped with Garlic and Mushrooms ($17.95), one of the many specials offered for this particular night. I had the "Wood oven roasted specialty", Mediterranean Tilapia ($16.00). The Tilapia was nicely cooked and topped with Sun Dried Tomatoes, Artichokes, Capers, Fresh Basil, Oregano, Lemon, Olive Oil, and a splash of Pinot Grigio! An interesting combination of ingredients that made up one great meal! Both entrees came with a Baked Potato and Fresh Green Beans. Our little one delighted in the wood fired oven Pizza ($7.00), which happens to be one of their specialties! No wonder-every bite was simply delicious. By the time dinner was completed we forced ourselves to have dessert, in which we shared. We had the Warm Brownie with a scoop of Vanilla Ice Cream and drizzle of chocolate everywhere! The little one ate most of it and happily I might add!
When dinner was over, I went on a quick tour of the rest of the place. There is a nice sized bar area, separate from the restaurant where you can hear live music every Friday Happy Hour and DJ Joey D. thereafter! Upstairs is a private banquet area, newly renovated with 11 TV screens, 17 beers on draft and caters up to 120 guests. Please consider the Ashburner for your next party! They offer great packages at great prices too!
Check out their New Years Eve package! $35pp or $65.00 a couple includes 4 hours open bar (Bottled and draft domestic beer, wine, and mixed drinks), buffet, party hats and noise makers-DJ Joey D starts at 9pm! Ashburner is also offering New Years Eve Dinner Specials, in the restaurant, from 5pm to 12 midnight. Including Twin Fillets, Surf & Turf, Veal Oscar, and Chicken Oscar-all served with two sides and a house salad. For more information please call (215) 333-9860 or visit them on www.ashburnerinn.com The next time you are looking for a great place to eat or just to connect with friends come out to the Ashburner Inn!

This Holiday season I stopped at Final Score Sports Bar & Grill for their Christmas party and what a good time it was! This place was hopping all night long! There was dancing, laughing, eating and drinking to everyone's content! DJ Ghost was in the house playing great music and giving away many prizes....like Diamond Stud Earrings and an HDTV ...with just a raffle ticket-all FREE. There was no cover and the buffet had all home-made Italian food-also FREE! Infact for every special occasion, Karen does the cooking and what a great cook she is!
Besides meeting a lot  of really nice and friendly people there, the staff are just great! Always smiling- you can tell that everyone enjoys being at the Final Score! On my way out, Dawn, bartender, handed me a large 16'' pizza pie, 1/2 Eggplant 1/2 Margarita courtesy of Giovanni Gigante and his son, the BEST PIZZA GUYS AROUND! Originally from Angelo's Pizza, now with Final Score Sports Bar! This Pizza is the best around! Seriously! The crust was thin, soft, almost sweet! Each bite was mouthfuls of Eggplant Slices, Home-made Sauce and Mozzarella! The Margarita Pizza was a White pie with Tomatoes, Fresh Basil, Garlic and Mozzarella! For just $7.50 ($2.00 extra for Special toppings) you can order as many as you want! Try their Sunday Breakfast Pie-made with Eggs, Potatoes, Mozzarella and your choice of Bacon, Sausage, or Ham! Out of this World!
Looking for somewhere to go for New Years Eve? For just $15.00 you get a Champagne Toast at midnite, a wonderful buffet, free local shuttle service, party favors, tons of give-a-ways, DJ Ghost and lots of surprises throughout the night!

By: Krista Doran JohnMcNutt_promoIn an area flooded with cover bands, it’s refreshing when you come across musicians who put an original spin into all they do.    For this issue, of “In the Spotlight” we wanted to feature someone who offers a little bit of everything, from Classic Rock to R&B/Funk, and who has the musical prowess to handle everything else in between.  This is why we decided to feature John McNutt! John is a veteran musician from the Philly area and has been playing in this area for many years.  Managed by Al Geary and Shore Bets Agency, John has become one of their premier performers.  I spoke to Al about him and he told me “John McNutt is one of the most talented and versatile musicians I have ever had the pleasure of representing. People like John make my job satisfying."  I can certainly understand why Al said this.  In addition to John’s superb skills as a musician, he is down to earth, gracious, and very genuine.  John has had a great career so far and has been playing in some of the best rooms including the Borgata in Atlantic City, Seacrets in Ocean City, MD and The Bridgeport Ribhouse in Bridgeport PA. His versatility as a musician allows him to offer venues everything from a solo acoustic performance to a full band sound.  And it doesn’t stop there!  In addition to playing covers in pretty much every genre, John also does a great show featuring everyone’s favorite Irish music for St. Patrick’s Day. Truth be told, John’s favorite thing to play is Classic Rock.  You gotta love him for that!  CCR, Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, Stevie Wonder…these are some of the artists that carved their place into the history of Rock and Roll forever because of the great music they created. John knows this is what people want to hear.  He puts on a live performance full of energy and passion, because he simply loves what he does.  So much so, that most of time, he doesn’t even go to a venue with a set list.  Instead, he will “feel out” the crowd and play to them, rather than just going down a pre-conceived set list.  He has an uncanny sense for what people want to hear and he succeeds in pleasing everyone, every show, every time.  John McNutt is a performer and an entertainer, and one of the best you will ever have the pleasure of seeing.  He puts on one HELL of a performance…no enhancements, no sequencing…just honest, raw talent that is fun to watch and full of the type of energy that only great LIVE music can create.
