When HoneyBaked Ham was just a single shop in Michigan more than 40 years ago, it was run under the careful eye of its founder, Harry J. Hoenselaar. He handpicked every bone-in ham that he was going to sell in stores and carefully cured each in a secret marinade recipe. He then slow-smoked the ham over a custom blend of wood chips. Hoenselaar even built and patented a machine that spiral-cut the meat into almost perfectly even slices and re-creations of M.A.S.H. characters. But what really stuck with people was his glaze—a proprietary recipe that encased each ham with a sweet, crunchy finish.
Though Harry's shop has since grown into a nationally recognized brand with more than 400 stores, that attention to detail hasn’t been lost. His grandchildren now oversee the company, and they have maintained that same process of hand-selecting hams and smoking them for up to 24 hours before they’re spiral-cut and glazed. Many of the stores also have a cafe-style counter, where patrons can pick up fresh sandwiches layered with roast beef, smoked turkey breast, chicken salad, and of course, honey-glazed ham.
Chicken alfredo, shrimp scampi, eggplant parmesan. More than 30 housemade pasta dishes emerge from the kitchen every night at Piccolo Trattoria of Newtown. Chefs scatter pistachio nuts and goat cheese into fettuccine, smother penne with baby shrimp and pesto cream sauce, and cover fusilli with oyster and shiitake mushrooms.
Earlier in the day, however, these recipes take on a different form: they become pizzas. During lunch, chefs whip up more than 20 gourmet pies, crowning them with classic pasta ingredients alongside non-Italian flavors such as taco and cheesesteak fixings. Besides tossing noodles and flinging dough, the BYOB eatery's chefs cook salmon in a port wine reduction and sauté veal with figs and mushrooms in a cognac cream sauce.

Inflated structures, slides, and games fill the climate-controlled environs of the numerous BounceU locations that speckle the nation. At each site, staff members closely monitor all activities as little ones traverse obstacle courses or pull on oversized inflatable boxing gloves.

After dark, BounceU offers up an experience designed for tweens and teens with cosmic open bounce sessions that feature music, lighting, and glow-in-the-dark accessories. In addition to open sessions, the indoor-play haven sets the stage for the Preschool Playdate program.

In the early 1900s, thousands of Germans who had previously settled in Hungarian lands immigrated to the Philadelphia area. In 1910, a group of German-Hungarian men formed a choir, which quickly expanded into a social club that would become the United German Hungarian Club of Philadelphia and Vicinity. The club operated a school to teach children the German language, put on arts performances, opened a library, and participated in sports, particularly soccer, which the club has played since 1922.
Today, the club caters to Americans with German-Hungarian heritage and beyond. It's active in a variety of pursuits, with members winning schuhplattler?German folk dancing?competitions, organizing a variety of youth and adult amateur soccer teams, and hosting holiday celebrations at the club's Grand Ballroom, which can also be rented out for lavish events or a private session to practice your echoing skills.
