Sesame Place A Very Furry Christmas Is Open Daily Until December 31st! Fireworks, Too!

spxmasemilyOne of our favorite places to visit during the Christmas season is Sesame Place in Langhorne, Pa. Just under two hours from the NYC area it’s a great place to spend the day with the family. This year the weather has cooperated like no other year. It’s just a gorgeous winter to be outside and play. Although Christmas is officially over, Sesame Place will remain open daily thru December 31 and even have fireworks on New Year’s Eve! It’s a wonderful place to make dreams come true as you watch your child’s face light up the moment they come face to face with their favorite Sesame Street character. 


spxmasferriswheelThere is plenty to do at Sesame Place- A Very Furry Christmas including shows, character meet and greets, new seasonal rides just for the winter event, and of course Dine with Me where you can dine with all of your favorites up close and in a warm setting. While visiting be sure to carve out time to see the Very Furry Christmas parade. You will not want to miss all the seasonal add ons and you may even be in an area where it will snow! (If you want to be in the snow area be just past the fire truck on Sesame Street). 



If you visit on December 28 or 29th you can meet up with a special guest, Curious George.  Meet Curious George at these times in 1-2-3 Smile with Me! 1:30-2:00, 2:30-3:00, 3:30-4:30, 5:30-6:00, 6:30-7:00. There is also a special Dine With Me where you can dine with Curious George-It’s a lunch on both days at 12 noon. Check out more about it here.


If you are planning of spending New Year’s Eve at Sesame Place be sure to stay until the end of the day. Sesame Place has a wonderful fireworks display. Fireworks take place on Thursday, December 31st 6:25-6:35pm). It’s definitely a great way to ring in the new year a little bit early with all of your little ones. 

See you at Sesame Place!

Quaker Steak & Lube -Free Dinner For Kids With Santa!

Quaker Steak & Lube Goes Full Throttle Into the Holiday Season With Toy Drives and Free Dinner With Santa For Kids! 


If you are like our family we are always looking for a great Dinner with Santa during the holidays. This year we heard about one that sounds great and can save a few bucks along the way. Although we have never been to Quaker Steak & Lube, there are friends that are telling me is definitely worth it! Quaker Steak & Lube, or The Lube to loyalists, the award-winning casual-dining concept known for its Best Wings USA and more than 25 signature sauces, today announced that it will rev its engines – and gift-giving spirit – during the holiday season with toy drives at its Brick, Edison and Pohatcong restaurants throughout the month of December. Shifting gears, The Lube also announced that it will host Dinner with Santa at its three New Jersey restaurants on Monday, December 21 from 5 – 8PM.


Through December 23, diners who visit The Lube in Brick, located at 1036 Cedar Bridge Ave., or Pohatcong, located at 1304 US Route 22, are encouraged to bring a new, unwrapped toy to help brighten the holidays for local families in need. In Brick, toys will be donated to Visitation Relief Center, which offers a one-stop recovery and relief experience to aid families and individuals in Monmouth and Ocean Counties affected by Superstorm Sandy. In Edison, toys will be donated to Hands of Hope Food Pantry, an organization focused on meeting the challenge of alleviating  hunger and making a difference in the community. In Pohatcong, toys will be donated to Northwest New Jersey Community Action Partnership (NORWESCAP), whose mission is to improve the lives of low income individuals and families in Northwest New Jersey through programs and education to foster self-sufficiency.

“We are proud to once again partner with the Visitation Relief Center, Hands of Hope and NORWESCAP for the 2015 holiday season,” said Victor Russomanno, area director, Quaker Steak & Lube. “Charitable giving is a focus within Doherty Enterprises and the restaurants we operate, and we’re happy to lend a hand to our neighbors in need throughout the year, and especially during the holidays. We also look forward to spreading holiday cheer to guests during our Dinner with Santa, and we are excited for families to join us to enjoy some festive fun with the kids.”

The Brick and Pohatcong restaurants will also host their final Off-Road Truck Nights of the year on Thursday, December 17 and Sunday, December 20, respectively. Off-road vehicle owners who visit the restaurants on these dates are encouraged to contribute to the holiday toy drives in each location to receive a 15 percent discount on their meals.

On Monday, December 21, Santa Claus comes to town at Quaker Steak and Lube’s restaurants in Brick, Edison and Pohatcong. From 5 – 8PM, guests have the opportunity to take photos with Santa – and get in those last-minute gift wishes – while dining on award-winning wings, beefed-up burgers, custom-built combos and more. Families will also enjoy a Kids Eat Free special, and children ages 12 and under can choose any entrée on the Quaker Steak & Lube Kids Lube Cruiser menu, with options including Grilled Boneless Wings, Top Gear Tenders, the Chevy Cheeseburger and more. Reservations are encouraged, and guests must bring their own cameras for photos with Santa.

Looking for the perfect present? Since you can’t stuff stockings with wings, a Quaker Steak & Lube gift card is the next best thing. Now through December 31, guests will receive a $5 bonus card to use during their next visit to The Lube with every $25 gift card purchase.

Quaker Steak & Lube offers a lineup of craveable food and supercharged events, combined with unique décor including motorcycles and race cars suspended from ceilings, plus gas station and automotive memorabilia.
