Cinco de Mayo may be a relatively minor holiday in Mexico. But for restaurants in York County, the holiday is a big boost to the bottom line.
El Serrano’s two locations in Springettsbury Township and Lancaster, for example, are expected to do three to four times the business they do on a typical Tuesday, said Melanie Torres, who manages the Lancaster location.
Mexitaly, a Springettsbury Township eatery whose menu features Mexican food, pizza and craft beer made on the premises, is bringing in extra help for Cinco de Mayo and ordering 20 percent more food ingredients than usual, owner Greg Skirboll said.

The St. Patrick’s Day Parade in Pittsburgh has its good days, like the 70-degree beauty in 2012, and it’s bad ones, the blizzard of 1993, but one thing is certain: It’s going to happen either way.
The parade, which started in 1864 and has run consecutively since 1950, will step off near the Greyhound station on Liberty Avenue and make its way to the Post-Gazette building on Saturday with nearly 200 marching units, including bands, floats, politicians and groups from Irish and other ethnic communities.
After all, everyone is Irish at the St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
This year’s grand marshal is Martin Madigan of Hampton, a founding member of the Irish Society for Education and Charities, former Pennsylvania State president of the Ancient Order of Hibernians and retiree from the Allegheny County Register of Wills Office.
The oversized oyster that rang in 2015 for West York is making a re-appearance at the York St. Patrick’s Day Parade.
York Fish & Oyster Co.’s first-ever entry is designed as an oyster bar, and leprechauns will shuck raw oysters on the float, said Jenn Emig, who co-owns the West York business with her husband, Steve.
After the parade, the company will head to Waterway Bar & Grill and sell about five different oyster dishes — complete with green horseradish, she said.
“St. Patrick’s Day is the day to have fun,” Emig said.
WILKES-BARRE, PA — St. Patrick’s Day is upon Northeastern Pennsylvania, which will include a weekend of parades and other festivities.
For law enforcement, it will mean more work than usual.
Scranton Police Chief Carl Graziano was among the officials at a news conference held at the Lackawanna County Courthouse this week. Officials encouraged residents to enjoy St. Patrick’s Day safely and responsibly.
“As everybody knows, it’s no secret that that’s the biggest alcohol consumption day — at least in the city — is St. Patrick’s Day Parade day,” Graziano said.
This Saturday at 7:00pm

2014 is coming to a close! It went by fast. We would like to wish our readers a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Hanukkah. We are thankful for each one of you and appreciate you stopping by our humble site to see what’s new in the great state of Pennsylvania (and sometimes our kissin’ cousins, New Jersey and Delaware).
We wish for peace on earth and that the human race would learn to co-exist better on this fragile rock we call planet Earth.
It will be 2015 in a few days. That date sounds so futuristic to those of us born in the 1950’s. We would have thought humanity would be further along by now, but apparently we are slow learners in the work and play well with others category.
Have a safe holiday, enjoy time with family and friends, do random acts of kindness and don’t eat too much!
May the Blessings of the Season be upon you.

Get ready to celebrate.
You can ring out the old and in the new this New Year’s Eve in a variety of ways.
Downtown Lancaster will welcome 2015 with the traditional ascension of the Red Rose Dec. 31 at Binn’s Park.
But before the countdown, the crowd will be entertained by Philly band Swift Technique, beginning at 10 p.m.
KENNETT SQUARE, PA – After a successful debut on New Year’s Eve 2013, the great Mushroom Drop will return this year to greet 2015.
The huge fungus made of lights will descend from a crane at the corner of State and Union streets at midnight.
Last year thousands of people arrived for the event that included food, music and all the enthusiasm of Times Square. Chairman Kathi Lafferty expects nothing less this year.
This event is free with the request that guests bring a can of food that will be contributed to the Kennett Square Food Cupboard.
