    [post_content] => Enter Victorian Mount Hope Mansion, a most unique setting for a theatrical interactive dining experience. Meet and mingle with intriguing guests to the Mansion and be sure to take note as they visit guests table side while they dine. After enjoying a four-course meal and tastes of the mystery that is thick in the air, everyone will assemble in the Mansion's Theater Room for a time of interrogation, hilarity and the answer to the question on everyone's mind! Performances run Fridays, Saturdays and Select Sundays, February through April and are each roughly three hours in length.

    [post_content] => The original storybook heroines share their subversive, not-for-kids “true stories" behind the tales as old as time. In order to set the record straight, these royal renegades toss off their tiaras, replacing sugary duets and animated teapots with hilarious songs that expose the juicy details of each princess’s life post-happily ever after.

    [post_content] => CHICAGO is intended for mature audiences

A swinging vaudevillian night club scene, flappers, shysters, notoriety seekers, and murderesses. Velma Kelly and Roxie Hart want it all . . . their independence, celebrity, vengeance, and to use the corrupt justice system to win their freedom. All that glitters is not gold and today’s headlines are quickly replaced with the next scandal, but Velma and Roxie will stop at nothing to “Razzle Dazzle” in the spotlight.

With a tantalizing score; “Cell Block Tango,” “When You’re Good to Mama,” “Mr. Cellophane” and more, Chicago promises to be “All That Jazz”!

    [post_content] => What are Amish Mud Sales?
Mud sales, named for the condition of the thawing ground in late winter and early spring, are major fundraisers for the volunteer fire companies throughout Amish communities. They are huge events, sometimes drawing as many as 20,000 people, where everything from hand-stitched quilts (donated by the Amish women's groups) and locally-made crafts to livestock, furniture, produce, baked goods, antiques, housewares, even the kitchen sink are all up for bid. In a sight that may seem like organized chaos to novice mud sale visitors, six or seven auctions are conducted simultaneously as Amish and "English" mill together over the many items bound for the auction block.

“We prefer the smaller motels with at-door parking. We’ve been staying at Amish Country Motel for six or seven years. It’s very convenient and always very clean. The employees are great – friendly and ready to assist you if needed. We enjoy eating and riding around the countryside, doing a little shopping, watching the hot air balloons and sitting out in front of the Amish Country relaxing. We have made some nice friendships here.”

— Bill & Brenda G., NJ
