Viking Pastries in Ardmore is being redone inside and out as part of a TV show. The big reveal for the Cricket Avenue bakery is set for today at 5:30 p.m. Official word on what show it is has been mum, but The Main Line Times says it is for a Food Network show and spots Nancy Glass Productions on site. We’re going to guess it is an episode of Save My Bakery, which actually has been on the Cooking Channel, a subsidiary of the Food Network.

Four Local Restaurants on United States of Bacon Tonight


Tonight at 7 p.m. on Destination America, formerly Discovery Home & Leisure, is featuring four local restaurants on United States of Bacon. As you might expect there’s a ton of bacon on the show but we have to raise an eyebrow over the inclusion of McNally’s Tavern’s Schmitter. Surely a great gluttonous sandwich, but as the diagram above shows, bacon is not a normal part of the Schmitter. Now bacon is available for a dollar add-on, but who needs bacon when you already have steak, grilled salami, cheese, fried onions, tomatos, special sauce and even more cheese?
