Reserve Your Table Ahead of Time at Kabuki Japanese Restaurant

April 28, 2015 1:25 pm

Most fans of Kabuki Japanese Restaurant recommend making a reservation if you plan on visiting during the dinner rush on Friday or Saturday. This King of Prussia eatery is so popular that the tables tend to go quickly on Friday and Saturday nights, and those without a reservation might be left waiting. That might be a difficult wait, given that Kabuki Japanese Restaurant dishes out Japanese hibachi food and sushi.

Watch while one of Kabuki's talented chefs cooks up steak on the hibachi grill at your table, or order one of the popular sushi rolls. Most patrons recommend a classic: the California roll. However, Kabuki also serves other pretty and tasty creations, like the tuna, salmon, shrimp, and white fish sushi. If you prefer tempura or teriyaki, Kabuki Japanese Restaurant offers those, too. Try one of its light salads on the side, like the medley of greens and veggies dressed with a house-made ginger vinaigrette.

Norristown Farm Park: 690 Acres’ Worth of Outdoor Recreation

April 21, 2015 12:35 pm

Norristown Farm Park is one of Montgomery County’s most treasured public resources and one of the region’s most unique parks. This sprawling preserve spans 690 acres of land and attracts visitors of various interests.

Nature lovers appreciate the unspoiled landscapes and diverse wildlife. Fitness enthusiasts enjoy miles of paved running, biking, and walking trails, as well as baseball and volleyball facilities. Sportsmen can enjoy trout fishing in two stocked streams or set up at Farm Pond. History buffs might visit some colonial-era structures that are among Norristown’s oldest buildings. Locals also utilize the park’s multiple picnic areas and pavilions for parties, reunions, weddings, and other special events.

Perhaps the most unusual aspect of Norristown Farm Park, however, is that it continues to operate as a working farm. Nearly 80 percent of the park is active farmland, which allows visitors to get a close-up view of the agricultural process.

Read About Some of the Country’s Weirdest, Wackiest Museums

April 14, 2015 11:16 am

While the Smithsonian is fascinating, and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is always a sight to see, some lesser-known American museums are just as interesting—if a bit weirder! If you have a flair for all things out of the ordinary, these unique museums are worth a visit.

1) International Cryptozoology Museum
Cryptozoology is the study of “hidden animals” not verified by science, and this small museum in Portland, Maine, is dedicated to just that. From Bigfoot to Lake Monsters, take a tour of all of the world’s most intriguing—and mysterious—unknown species.

2) International Banana Museum
This fruity museum in North Shore, California, is filled with every type of banana-related item that its curators could hunt down, from salt and pepper shakers to staplers and even a banana record player. Be sure to visit the famous banana bar and sample a banana-flavored milkshake or banana split.

3) Mütter Museum
Located in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Mütter Museum is one of the finest museums of medical history in the world. While it is a bit creepy to see the 19th-century medical instruments and anatomical specimens, it is also completely fascinating.

4) The Museum of Bad Art
The name says it all at this silly museum in Somerville, Massachusetts. Keep in mind that it’s all in good fun, and just enjoy the truly awful displays of artistic expression.
