Back to the 50's. Furlong Pa

It’s nice to know that when you’re craving french fries and a sandwich at 9 in the morning, Back to the 50’s located in Furlong will indulge you.
You won’t be able to miss the squat pink building (reminds me of my favorite Bonnie Bell lipgloss – Cotton Candy) and once inside, you’ll find it’s cozy, but the booths are nice and roomy.

This was the first time I’ve ever had the famous “Elvis” sandwich – peanut butter and bananas on grilled bread (I added bacon) – and it was worth the wait.

The fries were crispy (even at 9 in the morning) and the regular size fry came in a huge basket, easily enough for 2.  Now, I’m a picky fry eater, and Back to the 50’s serves the thick kind (I like mine thin or curly and thin) – which my mate loved, but alas, I prefer the skinner variety.

Our waitress was friendly and attentive  – though the young guy that sat us seemed like he’d rather be at home playing video games than working – no Richie Cunningham or Fonzie – still – he was polite – just a bit distant.

I look forward to more visits to try the cheese steaks (which Alice from the Chalfont Post Office swears is the best in the area).

Ps. If you order the Elvis, please refrain from saying “Thank you, thank you very much” when the waitress delivers it. She’s heard that line 4, 567 times.

Blue A Hair Studio

Huntingdon Vly, PA 19006-6114

After my original stylist left (Lynda), I tried many of the other hair stylists and found that the one thing they all shared in common was the fact they made you feel like a friend, not just a customer. And if I didn't like the way someone colored my hair (because my hair is dark and Lynda had just the right touch with it), I tried someone else out.
It's a delicate situation, but the staff at Blue never ever make you feel guilty or embarrassed for trying to find the right "fit" like so many other salons do.
The thing is, I could have followed Lynda, but I was reluctant to leave Blue because it has such a warm atmosphere, is professional but with their own unique personality. I mean, if that isn't a true testimonial to how great it is, I'm not sure what could top that.
And guess what? Lynda ended up coming back!

Daddy Pops


Fried Oreos. Kielbasa for breakfast. Cozy. The waitresses make you feel like you're at home (but don't ask you to do the dishes). They have flapjacks! And grits. When I leave, I feel loved.
