April 1 is very near and dear to our hearts here at the Backyard Ale House.  Why?  Well there is a very funny practical joke that I played on my brother Patrick over 10 years ago in 2005.


It’s a tale that shows how quickly a practical joke can go from a good natur...

This year mark's the 55th Anniversary if the Scranton St. Patrick's Parade, a momentous event that brings tens-of-thousands of people to Downtown Scranton each year.  Scranton boasts the 2nd largest St. Patrick's Parade in the country, per capita next to Savannah, Geo...

In Scranton, one could easily compare the removal of our patio tent to the lighting of the Scranton Times Tower for the Christmas season. Ok, maybe that's overstated.  Although, when the first beautiful day (65deg F+) of Spring arrives we start to hear the question, 'w...

The holidays are here again! YAY! It's that time of year where we put aside the rat race for a few days in order to remember what's really important: food, booze, and blood relations we barely see the rest of the year. This being a ramble, we're here to provide a guide...

March Madness is the time of year when America goes "mad" over its three favorite March-themed pursuits: drinking, gambling, and, to a much lesser extent, College Basketball. Unlike College Football, which commands the same kind of zeal once reserved for religious expe...

In some cities, every day is a party...Las Vegas, for instance, is the world's foremost destination for performing unspeakable acts you would prefer to hide from your family and friends, New Orleans is a drunken dickshow every night of the year, and State College is th...

I hate Daylight Savings Time, and I always have. I suspect that tomorrow, as you are awakened one hour earlier than you usually would be, you will hate it too. Each spring, it robs me of a precious hour of my life, tearing me away from Sweet Lady Slumber’s warm embrace...

February 23, 2014

The Winter Olympics are almost over, which means that I have just become aware that the Winter Olympics are actually taking place. (For those of you who don’t personally know me, I live at the last outpost of the civilized world and only encounter news of the outside w...
