Sounds like an awesome party! As a PA native, I have to ask which Keystone State hot dog joint is represented on your tree? Fingers crossed it's my beloved Yocco's! If not, I'm happy to check and see if they have Christmas ornaments when I'm home for the holiday.

Here's an idea for a follow up to your tavern style pizza article. Have you ever come across Massachusetts South Shore Bar Pizza? I was unaware until the YouTube algorithm served up a video about it to me recently. It didn't sound too different than the tavern pizza you wrote about. Though IIRC they did triangular slices, not square. Could make for a fun weekend trip and I'd certainly be curious to read about how it stacks up to the places you visited in NJ and Staten Island!

I hope you both enjoy your well-earned time off!

Thanks for including me in your always wonderful Christmas party. I didn't get any of the logs but I did polish off plenty of ham and martinis!

I’ve been doing a 2 parts gin, 1 part dry vermouth and 1 part cocchi americano. On the wet side of a Martini. Thanks for the PW recipe. I will adjust & give it a try as well.

May I recommend Joel Patterson Christmas records for your holidays tunes? I think both of you will enjoy his music. The albums can be found on any music streaming service.
