Beer-inspired ice cream? You got it!

This summer, Victory Brewing Company began scooping out ice cream flavors infused with their iconic beer flavors. The flavors tie into their 3 top-selling brands of brews.

Ice cream lovers can indulge in Hop Devil Crunch, Storm King Crunch, and Triple Monkey.

While the ice cream doesn’t actually contain any alcohol, it does use the wart and other ingredients essential to the beer making process.

Sneak a peak (I got a taste!) at the new concoctions in my standup taped during my summer internship with CBS3 in Philadelphia.

We’ve all seen his iconic portrait, which even appears on America’s dollar bill, but did you know that George Washington is painfully posing in that shot because of his ill-fitting dentures?

You did, you say? Well, maybe you’re a self-proclaimed history buff!

If you didn’t, a new exhibit at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia just might help you discover “The Real George Washington.”

The exhibit, which runs through October 5th, takes guests through a chronological history of the nation’s first President. Artifacts include life-like wax figures, personal artifacts of Washington, and even a pair of his dentures (Geo suffered from horrible tooth decay).

Did you know he only had one, yes one, real tooth left when he took the Oath of Office to become our first President?

Take a quick peak inside this exhibit through my standup, recorded during my summer internship with CBS3 in Philadelphia.

With Harry Potter mania all the buzz in July, CBS3’s morning show sent a team to check out Tannen’s Magic Camp on the Main Line.

At the camp in Bryn Mawr, Reporter Nicole Brewer braved several magic tricks, including being sliced into thirds! While Nicole was creatively piecing together her live shots, the photographer and I brainstormed ideas for an interesting and memorable standup for my demo reel.

We came back to the station with a neat and “magical” experience, which incorporated the magic of television into this standup!

‘Sparks Fly’ at Taylor Swift’s Sold-Out Philadelphia Spectacular August 7, 2011

Sparks were flying as Berks County native Taylor Swift opened her 2011 “Speak Now” World Tour in Philly Saturday night.

Over 50,000 fans packed the field and stands at Lincoln Financial Field in South Philadelphia to welcome the country singing sensation to their city.

While most of those screeching for Swift were barely legal, hundreds of those cheers were surely from Swift’s self-proclaimed “Chaperone Dads (or Moms).” But, a few of those screams and ill-pitched sing-alongs did come from Section 116 where four double-daters were seated (My sister and her boyfriend, Greg, along with Abby and me).

And “Swifties” had plenty to sing-along to, as the Grammy-winner belted out 17 songs throughout her old stage show/musical-themed show.

Saturday’s sold-out show was one of six shows scheduled at football stadiums during the “Speak Now” Tour.
