Not only will Derek be returning to the studio, but the show is going to be a 2-hour extravaganza!

The Jersey Shore summer season may be over, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy beautiful beaches. Just slightly over an hour flight from Philadelphia International Airport is Bermuda Tourism. We’ll chat with Grotto Bay Beach Resort & Spa General Manager Rob De Bekker. They are Bermuda’s only resort offering an All-Inclusive supplement. The resort sits on a lush tropical estate featuring dramatic caves along the water’s edge in Bailey’s Bay. Scattered over 21 acres and sloping down toward two private beaches are 11 colorful cottages in traditional Bermudian architecture overlooking the clear turquoise waters dotted with small islands. Swim in the shallow waters off their private pink sand beach, in the freshwater pool, or languish in the outdoor Jacuzzi situated among a lush garden above the beach. Sail, snorkel, paddle board, dive ancient wrecks or explore the delicate coral reefs. Grab an early morning fishing charter, take a cruise on a sunny afternoon or a glorious sunset sail right from thier dock. Play tennis night or day, work out in their ocean-front gym or get pampered in their 500,000-year-old cave spa. The resort is conveniently located within five minutes of two of Bermuda’s finest golf courses and the Bermuda Skyport Corporation Limited L.F. Wade International Airport.

If you want to go South for your beach experience, then about 4 hours non-stop from PHL is Aruba – One Happy Island. We’ll talk with Richard Roy the General Manager of Eagle Aruba Resort & Casino. In addition to Eagle Beach, one of the Top 10 beaches in the world, Eagle Aruba Resort & Casino is nearby with a myriad of entertainment options, numerous attractions, live cultural events and, of course, the best dining experiences. Their resort is just a short stroll to the white sands of Eagle Beach and centrally located in Aruba’s low-rise district, tucked away from the crowds in a quiet setting. You can make Aruba your home away from home as all of their suites all include kitchenettes.

If you don’t want to leave, there is still plenty to do around Philadelphia. One of the best outdoor events Philadelphia Burger Brawl is happening October 23rd at Xfinity Live. To discuss the event will be Philly Burger Brawl Founder Rob Wasserman and proprietor of Rouge in Rittenhouse Square. Burger Brawl raises money for School District of Philadelphia schools and programs that support our Philadelphia youth.

There is no if and or but about it here. The cheesesteak is delicious! I will not entertain the best ever or rank them, that’s for social media pages and other websites. What I can tell you is if you are around the area and in the mood for a cheesesteak this is without a doubt a fantastic place to go. The burger was really great also. If they had fresh cut french fries I would have went wild, but they still serve a solid fry here. The service was top notch as well. They deserve all the hype they receive. The roll held everything together, meat was tender, onions were cooked perfectly, and cheese was overflowing. It was exactly what I was looking for that day.

Even though this is just a take-out Chinese spot this was much better than the average. Had Mongolian Beef and Chicken with Broccoli combinations with egg rolls. The egg rolls were very fresh unlike most take-out places and the quality of rice and meat was of better quality as well. If you live or are in the area looking for a quick decent affordable meal they fit the bill and a good spot.

What a delight this place was. The food I had simply was delicious and service was fast and friendly. The pork fried rice is some of the best around and like how they ask to cook it with or without soy sauce. With soy was my choice. Also I really enjoyed the Specialty Entree Ginger Scallion Flounder and Shrimp. It was plentiful in portion size with a decent amount of flounder and shrimp and the flavor was just fabulous. I am interested to try them again and eat other things from the menu, but I would order this again and again I enjoyed it that much.

One of the best parts of my visit here was the extra thick crispy bacon they put on my bagel sandwich. The onion bagel was great as well. They are a great destination and I enjoyed my bacon, egg, and cheese on an onion bagel. Just beware they get VERY crowded on weekend mornings.

Blowin’ Smoque – Camden, NJ

Blowin’ Smoque – Camden, NJ

SmallBitesRadio has been named #14 Top Hospitality Shows on the Planet for 2020, 2021, and 2022, #Bluejeanfood.com being named #18 Top Philadelphia Lifestyle Blogs, Websites & Influencers of 2021 and 2022, and being nominated as #MetroPhilly Newspaper 2022 Best of Philly Arts & Entertainment.

The BBQ world was centered in Wildwood, New Jersey this weekend at the Anglesea Blues Festival held in conjunction with the 2022 New Jersey State Barbecue Championship a Kansas City Barbecue Society event. The top slots went to Grand Champion: Chunky BBQ and Reserve Champion: Uncle Pig’s Barbeque Pit this year. It has been a joy seeing BBQ grow in and around the Philadelphia/South Jersey region over the years.

Did you know though that you can procure some decent BBQ options in Camden, New Jersey? This may come surprisingly as Blowin’ Smoque is obviously overshadowed by their neighbors James Beard Award Winning fried chicken restaurant Corinne’s Place and iconic celebrity cheesesteak hot spot Donkey’s Place. With competition like that it still doesn’t mean they aren’t worth a visit. This tiny stretch of Haddon Ave is becoming a worthy foodie’s destination for any type of cuisine.

R’Lay Wilkerson a Rutgers School of Business—Camden alumnus has made it easy to order online for pickup or through many of the popular delivery services. What should you order? Well I had the brisket, ribs, mac and cheese, collard greens, and lemonade. The ribs were certainly the highlight accompanied by the mac and cheese and washed down nicely with the lemonade. I had a sample of the yams, and regret that I didn’t order that as one of my sides. The yams were great! Is this competition style BBQ? Absolutely not, but no restaurant is putting out that type of food. What they are putting out is good value for the quality of product they are serving and friendly service that will go above and beyond to make sure you are happy. You really can’t ask for more than that. If you haven’t heard of them or given them a try for yourself you really should. Who knows, just maybe they might win the New Jersey State Barbecue Championship one day 😉

This place is a little bit of everything for everyone. They are a mixture of Caribbean, BBQ, Spanish, and Southern styles. For their location, they are certainly unique and a welcome addition to the culinary scene. The food was better than average, but the highlight was the service was top notch and the retail area of the restaurant is really cool with some interesting foodie items available for purchase. I had the rib platter with mac and cheese and fries, and the jerk chicken platter with Spanish rice and sweet fried plantains. I will be interested to see how they evolve and grow. If you’re around the area they are a good choice to try something different than the ordinary or normal around there.

A few years ago it would have been a struggle to think of anywhere serving Detroit style pizza. Now it seems they are popping up left and right. Even with many options of places being available now, not all are equal. Let me tell you that Polizzi’s Brick Oven has a really nice pie called the ‘313’ and the zucchini sticks are delicious as well. For the pizza, the dough is fluffy exactly what you are looking for and the cheese is crispy on the side just like it should be. If you’re a fan of this style or just looking for something a little different and good you should give them a try.
