Goodbye Christine’s, Hello Dot’s Dairy Bar!

ChristinesDots

We’re lucky to have so many great ice cream places in Levittown, but it’s particularly great when one is a walk or short bike ride away. That’s why, as a Blue Ridge resident, I was bummed to hear that “Christine” and her son wouldn’t be reopening this year. It was terrible timing for me, especially since I’m currently enjoying something of a sweet-tooth renaissance in my late 30s. So, I was thrilled to have spotted this while out and about in Levittown today. Thank you and welcome Dot’s Dairy Bar!

Spotlight On: Kari’s Cheesecakes & Bakery

KarisCheesecakes01

A week ago I stopped by to meet Kari at Kari’s Cheesecakes and Bakery located in Bailey’s Plaza on Emilie Road. Since then I’m pretty sure that I’ve eaten more cheesecake and confections then I have my entire life. Seriously, I was a strange child that didn’t like sweets and have only recently developed a sweet tooth. Well, I’ve seen the light and am telling you that you need to stop by Kari’s charming Levittown bakery if you haven’t already.

Just a shade beyond the easterly end of Mill Creek Road is Darby O’Gill’s on Bristol Pike in Morrisville. The self-proclaimed “Irish pub with excellent grub” is known throughout the local buffalo wing underground as a place that deals a good drumstick. So, I thought I’d try them for the first time and see what the hubbub is all about. Spoiler alert: Those hubbubbers were onto something.

Know Your Local Wings: McStew’s Pub

Here at Levittown Comfort, we love us some buffalo wings! We also know that a decent wing isn’t always easy to find. Everyone knows what to expect from the chains like Buffalo Wild Wings and Wings-to-Go, but you never quite know what to expect when ordering from a local eating establishment. Some specialize in the wing, whereas others treat my favorite treat as an afterthought.

Unboxing a Local Legend – The Ginacotti

You see unboxing articles on blogs all over the internet. Usually, it’s tech writers getting their hands on the latest gadgets, like the new iPhone or Playstation, and opening them up for the first time while offering their first impressions. I thought it would be fun to apply the same formula while exploring things in and around Levittown. And, since it’s a great excuse to stuff myself, why not start with the legendary Ginacotti from Julio’s in Fairless Hills? The only difference between this article and those tech blogs is that this isn’t my first rodeo with the Ginacotti and it’s far from being a new product. But, I’ll do my best to pretend I’ve never had one to maintain the true spirit of unboxing.
