Lake Sheridan

Nestled between Fleetville and Factoryville, PA, Lake Sheridan is a 90-acre body of water. It is made up of two sections, the upper part of which is in Lackawanna County, and the lower portion of which is in Wyoming County. The upper portion was known as Shiek’s Pond during the 19th century, and was created through the breaching of a dam on a local farm.

This lovely lakefront home offers a large stone-faced fireplace, a breakfast room, and an open concept first floor. The first floor is light-filled, with plenty of windows. The second floor has three large bathrooms. The master bath is private. This lakefront home also includes a two-car garage and a large storage shed.

Slug’s pub

The team behind the Snail Bar in Oakland is back with a new bar called Slug, which will open on July 22. The pub will be located on Broadway and 14th Street. It will be led by owner Andres Giraldo Florez, who also founded Snail last summer and previously worked at the Michelin-starred Saison. His team also includes chef Spencer Horovitz and general manager Jake Michahelles.

Slug pubs use beer as bait, which makes them an effective method of eradicating slugs from gardens. The slugs that come in contact with beer become acutely dehydrated and die. Slug pubs are very easy to make, and they are a convenient way to get rid of slugs from your garden.
