Highly skilled meat carvers ply their trade behind the counter as they create housemade italian sausage to order, slice up thick steaks of grass-fed beef, or prepare delectable stuffed chicken breasts.

Gina and Anthony, the owners of S&D Catering, have been involved with the business for more than 30 years. Homemade sausages swing from racks inside the storefront, a touching reminder of the sausages Gina’s grandfather, Dominick, used to make when he founded S&D Catering more than 80 years ago. Anthony met the family when he began working in Dominick's S&D pork store in 1969, and has worked with the family ever since. As Gina’s father began to take over the business, the model expanded, and today they provide authentic, freshly made home-style fare for any occasion. Gina and her team whip up a smorgasbord of international flavors, ranging from Italian staples such as lasagna and baked ziti to wienerschnitzel and chili con carne. They slice up tender cold cuts for gigantic heroes that span up to 6 feet, but the biggest thing about S&D Catering is the selection. They also prepare dishes that range from barbecue spare ribs and southern fried chicken to shish kebabs, swedish meatballs, and kielbasa with sauerkraut.

Something wicked lurks within the abandoned peach orchard at Depiero's Country Farm. But to discover which petrifying presences lie in wait, intrepid guests must walk through Night-mares Haunted Attraction's unsettlingly named Twisted Maniac Trail. Scares spring from behind every turn, sometimes in the form of special effects, other times in the form of actors donning horrifying getups. At certain points, those scenes may depict intense, blood-soaked frights not recommended for children 10 and under. If the outdoor trail ever gets too freaky, participants of any age can be escorted out quickly by shouting "safety", just like the protagonist does at the anti-climactic conclusion to Friday the 13th.
