I’m not sure what the rest of you are up to, but while I’m at the luxurious Hotel Hershey this weekend, here’s what is going on around town:
After a month-long vacation, La Kasbah has reopened. Being very close to my home, this makes me very happy. After a cold, blustery walk home, a bowl of harira and a small loaf of French bread is a great fix to warm me up after work.
Kasbah is now open from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and is closed on Sundays.
Also, new entrees and tapas have been added to the menu! Stop by and check out Chicken A L’Orange, shrimp skewers, garlic hummus and more.
Kasbah has received consistently high ratings from DineOutHarrisburg and the posters on Pennlive Forums. Please stop in and try Midtown Harrisburg’s Moroccan cuisine. BYOB. 717-909-4898.
Any reason why this week seemed nearly never-ending? I’m kicking off the weekend right with an informal Leap Day beer tasting with the girls at my place, then finishing on Sunday with my first trip to the Climbnasium. Here’s a roundup of some other hot stops:
After an afternoon baby shower on Saturday, we stopped into a busy Stock’s on Second. We sat above the main restaurant in their “velvet lounge.” Service was attentive and friendly. We ordered cosmos and espresso martinis and sampled from the bar menu.
We started with orders of Stock’s homemade chips – one original and one cajun, which comes with a blue cheese dip. We tried the pulled-pork BBQ quesadillas, the burger and the Croque Monsier (i.e., ham and swiss). The latter was my favorite – a definite must-order.
Groove Jones, a 7-piece collaboration, started with mellow tunes around 9, and as soon as diners finished up their coffees and desserts, the entire back of the restaurant transformed into a makeshift dance floor.
Stock’s – still got it.
