PA Live! Blog of the Week: Onomahuna

NEPA Blogs will be presenting a "Blog of the Week" on WBRE's PA Live! every Tuesday. PA Live! airs weekday afternoons on WBRE from 4:00 to 5:00.

Watch this episode on the PA Live! site: http://www.pahomepage.com/story/blog-of-the-week-jim-babinskis-onomahuna-september-10th-2013/d/story/K0hEj5gFqUKxVxmocPZDmg

Our PA Live! Blog of the Week this week is Jim Babinski's Onomahuna (http://onomahuna.com/).

There are lots of food review blogs out there, but this isn't one of them. Jim Babinski didn't set out to judge restaurants and the food they serve. Instead, on Onomahuna he showcases local eateries that might otherwise be missed. As he writes, "If someone visiting you for the first and last time asked to sample local food where would you send them? Those are the places I want to feature here."

Onomahuna focuses mainly on eateries in and around the Scranton area, which really isn't much of a limitation given the sheer number and variety of places to eat there. It would take a very long time just to sample some of the food at each of the places listed! Jim is also open to blog post contributions from others who would like to share information about their favorite places to eat. Full details are here.

Onomahuna has a broad web presence, including a Twitter account (for the most up-to-the-minute information) and a Tumblr page that used to be the main blog site but now serves mainly to redirect people to posts on the main site, http://onomahuna.com/. If you want to find out about, as Jim puts it, "fun local places to grab a good meal, catch up with old friends and enjoy your day," any one of those would be a great place to start - as long as it gets you to Onomahuna!
