Book stores are a dying breed. The local Boarder’s has closed along with the rest of the chain, replaced by BAM. Calling the replacement a bookstore is being generous. In reality it is a store specializing in glossy magazines, some book related knick knacks, and a supply of beach reading to beat the band. If the literature you enjoy doesn’t have Fabio on the cover, then you will likely be severely disappointed in the selection. With more and more books downloaded and not bought, bookstores are sadly becoming a thing of the past. Have no fear though; York has a gem of a bookstore in The Book Emporium. Tucked back off of Market Street downtown, The Book Emporium has been meeting the needs of literature minded locals for decades. The place isn’t above selling romance novels, but such genres only make up a minute percent of the store’s overall inventory. Those of us who are passionate about reading can get lost in the warehouse filled almost to the ceiling with used books on every subject under the sun. Though the store is not book exclusive, lava lamps, old vending machines, and countless York related mementos line shelves throughout the space. You can buy comics, cookbooks, antiques and records, art prints and posters all under one slightly unstable roof. They also host events for musicians and other local groups. Embracing the esoteric, conversation is not lacking and one can find themselves caught up in an impromptu meeting of the minds with a fellow patron. If literature is on its way to becoming another digital entity and bookstores are an archaic thing of the past, then the Book Emporium represents the opposition movement, a house of solace for those of us who still like to turn pages and scribble in margins. If books stores are a thing of the past, the Book Emporium is a museum where people can go and smell the not so familiar scent of being surrounded and overwhelmed by the printed word.

Buffalo Wild Wings has opened it's doors Monday, October 29,2012. It's famous wings and sports are attracting everyone in York County. Hurricane Sandy couldn't keep fans of the restaurant chain from opening on Monday and Tuesday evening dinner rush. Buffalo Wild Wing in York Country is the first of it's kind in the area. The York County restaurant is located off of east Market Street and northern way in York pa; in the same shopping center as the Wal-Mart, Applebee's, and Sam's Club across from Sovereign Bank and Wolf's furniture. At Buffalo Wild Wings you can get wings bone-in or boneless. The wing orders come in orders of 6 for $5.99,12 for $11.29,18 for $15,99 24 for $19.99, and 50 for $39,99; bone-in 8 for $7.99,12 for $10.29,18 for $14.79,24, and 50 for $39.99 boneless. Their wings can be ordered in 21 different sauces and seasonings. The sauces range from sweet bbq, teriyaki, mild, parmesan garlic, medium, honey bbq, spicy garlic, jammin jalapeno, Asian zing, Caribbean jerk, Thai curry, hot bbq, hot, mango habanera, wild, and blazin. The seasonings range from salt and vinegar, lemon pepper, chipotle bbq, buffalo, and desert heat. When I went to Buffalo Wild Wings, I ordered the 12 boneless wings with Asian zing, the rest of my party ordered, 12 boneless wings with medium, sweet bbq and honey bbq. The Asian zing, tasted hot and sweet similar to sweet and sour chicken but with more hotness and less sour. The medium wings tasted very similar to Applebee's Buffalo wings and Papa John's Buffalo wings. The sweet bbq were very sweet. And the honey bbq wings tasted similar to Papa Johns bbq wings. The wings we ordered were very good and tasty. The boneless wings were a nice size and not heavy sauced. We also ordered chips and salsa as an appetizer. Buffalo Wild Wings also serves nachos, mozzarella sticks, chili con queso dip, mini-corn dogs, and soft pretzels. The chips and salsa were like every other chips and salsa, tortilla chips and a tomato based hot salsa. For drinks they serve Coke products, which made me happy, since I enjoy Coke over Pepsi. They also serve domestic and imported beers, lemonades, limeades, and Red Bull. If you order a Coke product, there are free refills. Overall the food, my party brought was what we expected and enjoyed it very much. The price for wings are very reasonable and you get what you pay for. But other than the food what else can customers expect from Buffalo Wild Wings. My party got there around 6 p.m. and waited for 35 minutes to be seated, the waiting area was very small and there were people waiting outside in the rain to get seated. We received a buzzer, like Applebee's, Texas Roadhouse until we got seated. I overheard from other customers, who entered after my party, their wait was around 45 to 60 minutes. So I was glad my party got there when we did. The tables were very close together and it was hard to pull out the chairs but enough space not to bump into each other. They had booths and black metal chairs with either a high wooden table or low wooden table. On the walls were sports memorabilia from local college teams, York College of Pa, Penn State, University of Pittsburgh, and local professional teams, the Pittsburgh Penguins, Pittsburgh Pirates, Pittsburgh Steelers, Philadelphia Flyers, Philadelphia 76ers, and Philadelphia Eagles. No Baltimore or Washington sports memorabilia. The waitress was very friendly and kept checking up on our meal and frequently refilled our drinks. All of the waitresses and waiters wore Buffalo Wild Wings style football jerseys with their name on the back of it. So the customers were able to separate waiters and waitresses from managers. Just like other Buffalo Wild Wings, they had many large flat-screen televisions with sports playing, from the National Hockey League Network, ESPN, Major League Baseball Network, and National Football League Network. It will show most professional sporting events. I bet the busiest days will be Monday night for Monday night football, Sundays, and Super Bowl Sunday. It was very packed and loud during my parties time at Buffalo Wild Wings due to music in the background. So overall I consider Buffalo Wild Wings a good place to go to watch a major sporting events or for tasty, reasonable priced wings and a place to spend time with friends or family. Buffalo Wild Wings might not take over other local restaurant but become a hot spot in York for locals to go to. Food 4/5 stars Price 4/5 stars Location 4/5 stars Environment 3/5 stars. Overall 4/5 stars.
The city of York has its share of motorcycle enthusiasts. With one of the nation’s Harley Davidson plants right off of route 30, York has not only been a hub, but a destination for motorcyclists all over the country. Countless motorcycle clubs and organizations call York home. The Motorcycle Safety Foundations is not one of those organizations, seeing as the company is actually based out of California. Distance is not a problem though because they offer their safety courses all over the country. The thing that sets PA apart when it comes to the program is that we are the only state that offers it free of charge. They also provide practice bikes so as a student you don’t even need your own motorcycle, just a desire to learn safely and correctly. I took the course myself and it consisted of two classroom sessions and two outdoor practice sessions where you ride motorcycles drill style on a closed course. The first time I had ever ridden a motorcycle was on the second day of class, many of my peers also had little to no experience. Regardless of skill level the instructors treat everyone as if they are beginners. Both parts of the course are extremely informative, not only teaching you how to ride, but how to ride in the safest most efficient ways possible. Safety is by far the number one focus of the course. I thought for sure that I would crash at some point, due my complete lack of experience and general hand eye coordination, but alas I did not. The course moves slow and the instructors are devoted to helping students master the skills being taught; never once moving on before the class as a whole was on the same page. Two parts knowledge and two parts in on bike experience, not only is the course a great leaning opportunity, but if you pass the test at the end then you walk away with a valid motorcycle license ready to ride and equipped with the knowledge to ride safely.
The options for quality Mexican food are increasing throughout the York area. No longer confined exclusively to Taco Bell, foodies are free to think even further outside the bun when deciding where to dine. Even the mighty Taco bell recognizes the competition closing in, creating a new menu item called a Cantina Bowl which is essentially a burrito without the tortilla, a dish that has long been a staple at other chains like Chipotle and Qdoba. Restaurants like these serve Mexican food via a Subway-style ordering system allowing patrons to customize their dishes as they go down the line. These establishments provide the speed and convenience of a Taco Bell, but with cuisine that is a step above your fourth meal favorites (sorry, no Baja Blast though). There are tastier options still. Restaurants like Mexitaly and Roburritos are homegrown operations, both had there first locations in York. Higher quality, locally grown ingredients make for truly delicious food at a very modest price. Employees are always skilled and knowledgeable, taking the time to create their own signature dishes in their spare time that combine all kinds of unorthodox yet delicious characteristics. Roburritos is a stone cold burrito joint, no gimmicks and great taste. Mexitaly, as the name implies, combines aspects of Mexican and Italian food. The pizzas are out of this world and not to be found anywhere else. Not to mention you can putt off the calories at the mini golf course next door. And don't worry if you want to keep it simple, just ditch the burgers and grab some tacos, because a little change can be muy bueno.
The York Revolution is a green team, not in the sense that the players are inexperienced though. What I mean is that they don’t seem to have the kind of following that York has to offer. It surprised me that the few times I went the stadium was far from sold out. That’s not to say that going to a ballgame isn’t a great summer activity. Whether it is a date, day out with friends and family, or a company outing, the Revolution is a great place to have a good time, not to mention it is relatively cheap compared to many other summer activities. The team is still establishing itself in town and sometimes it takes time to build a loyal fan base. Over time I think the team will become a staple of York, but such a transition can take years if not decades. The team has employed its share of gimmicks in an effort to increase attendance. Only in baseball is such shameless promotion appropriate, and in fact it just adds to the jolly atmosphere. Then there is always our muppetesque mascot Downtown and he does a good job of keeping morale high. I admit I’m not sure where his species descends from he’s a born hype man. Though baseball is the main attraction, there are other things to do in the park. They have an amusement park for kids if they need to run around a bit during the seventh inning stretch. There is also a large selection of food, all of which is delicious and perfectly in keeping with the kind of classic cuisine one can only get at a ballpark. The prices aren’t too high either, certainly nothing compared to what one would pay at a MLB game. The team is on the up and up. Over time I’m sure their popularity will continue to grow. One way to make this happen is to go to the games. I would strongly recommend it. Get a hat too; you’ll want to be ready for the Revolution. Sefton
