Mustard's Last Stand's bun buffs grill up a wide selection of Vienna Beef hot dogs, draping them in dynamic ingredients from around the globe for creative and internationally inspired meals. The Spudtacular cheese dog ($2.99) tucks potato pancakes and sport peppers under a blanket of melted cheddar and swiss drizzled with brown mustard, and Guac the Dog ($2.99) disguises furtive franks in guacamole, cheese, salsa, and onions to covertly infiltrate nachos' strategic marketing meetings. Buns take five as The Lois ($4.75) smothers a bacon-laden bagel dog with cream cheese, and The Cowboy ($3.49) saddles up beef and bacon within a deep-fried tortilla topped with cheese and chili. Cajun-style palettes can skip the hot-link for a shrimp po boy ($3.75) sporting a frock of onions, tomatoes, and thousand island dressing and accompanied by a side of garlic fries ($2.29), or a half-order of chili-cheese fire fries ($2.99) spiked with spicy giardiniera. Patrons can jumbo-size their hot dogs for $1 extra, as well as cool their torrid tongues with a selection from the panoply of fountain drinks ($1.29–$1.79), an ice-cold beer, or a chalice of their self-brought liquid nitrogen.
Faced with a diminished roster due to the Second World War, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Philadelphia Eagles joined forces during the 1943 season. They ended the year with a 5-4-1 record. The aptly named Steagles Pub carries on the tradition, combining the culinary traditions of those two cities with a menu full of Pennsylvania-inspired food. Using bread and meat direct from Philly, Steagles serves up 12 steak and chicken cheesesteak variations ranging from traditional to a Mexican version with jalapenos and hot sauce. Additional hoagies abound, including turkey clubs and veggie sandwiches topped with three-cheese blends. When they aren't crafting hoagies, cooks stick to pub favorites such as pizza burgers, crab dishes, pierogi, and wings.
The family-friendly, non-smoking pub also puts up a full slate of non-edible diversion. Weekly events draw in crowds with karaoke, trivia, and live music tributes to rock luminaries like AC/DC. And every day of the week, guests can challenge each other to billiards and darts. Every month Steagles even hosts happy hour for Penn State fans and alumni, who can chat about the Nittany Lions' football season or the actual guard-lions that roam campus. In addition to keeping the spirit of '43 alive through it's bi-city mash-up, the pub also gives back to the community by donating a portion of the proceeds from every meal to The Wounded Warrior Project.

Doctor of Chiropractic Chris Tomshack opened the first HealthSource office in 2006 and has watched his business take flight, growing to more than 250 offices nationwide. The expansion is due in part to progressive-treatment protocols and business systems and in part to the experience Dr. Tomshack gained while in the US Air Force and the MBA program at the University of Toledo, and at Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he graduated summa cum laude. At each of his offices, a team of chiropractors, licensed massage therapists, and trainers helps to alleviate ailments such as disk degeneration and fibromyalgia. The team can also tailor treatments to alleviate pain from carpal tunnel syndrome, migraines, or arthritis, and its progressive-rehab program works with body areas that are known to cause trouble, such as weak lower backs and rebellious pinky toes.
