Official Best of the PoconosTM
Tells the Forbidden Tales of a Night on the Town in
The Poconos: ..................................
We Judge The Best Dive Bar:
From the Street. It's gotta be out of the way. Hopefully
unpainted. Lots of cars.
From the doorway. You should be able to see the pool
table, who's playing and for how much.
There has to be a juke box.
Nobody. Nobody can be wearing a suit.
If there's a cowboy, it's a winner!

Bar - hmmm.. maybe the Minisink
on River Road between Delaware Water Gap and Shawnee?
110 Post Office Rd Minisink Hills, PA 18341 Guess
so. Since the management at the Pocono Pub is too
proud to want the title. But then again, if you're
embarrassed to admit you're a dive bar.... maybe
you aren't. Nice out of the way location hidden
off a creek in Minisink. The typical country bar
with the typical bar menu of burgers, cheese steaks,
fries etc... worth the drive and a good break from

Poconos Best Musicians - Nancy
and Spencer Reed - Nancy and Spencer's unique brand
of vocal and instrumental styling has been enjoyed
by audiences for over 30 years. Their forte is their
vocal blend, with tight yet natural phrasing and
unusual harmony. Both grew up in New York City and
started their musical collaboration as teenagers
in the Bronx. They were influenced by the classic
performances of Lambert, Hendricks and Ross, Carmen
McRae and Jackie and Roy. Their audience is always
treated to a warm, relaxed vibe yet the music is
swinging and intense. They offer an unusual selection
of rarely heard tunes punctuated by unique treatments
of jazz standards. Spencer is REALLY, SERIOUSLY
the best Jazz/Blues guitarist .....is it just too
much to say....alive and Nancy's voice is well...
you'll just have to go hear it. ReedJazz.com
