Recently, I invited some friends over to hang out. Easy enough, over they came. Done. Good times were had by all, but something was missing. We all wanted food, but no one wanted to go out and no one wanted to cook.

My solution: some of the best food you can get at a fair or festival in Lehigh Valley, Vince’s.

Last week, I took some reading I’ve been meaning to do and left the office a little early to work offsite.

That site just happened to be the Valley Preferred Cycling Center (or the Velodrome as I still refer to it), which last week was home to the US Masters Track National Championships.

Captain America's Shield

Thanks to weather.com, I know now that Saturday’s temperature was 11 degrees over the average high and only 3 degrees off the record high, in Allentown anyway.

So, I’ll let you in on how I beat the midday heat, and let me tell you that I wasn’t alone…

Signs

On my way into work I pass signs, as does anyone. But on my particular route entering Allentown from the west I pass two signs; Playful City USA and Tree City USA.

Now, what do they mean?

Valley Preferred Cycling Center

It’s a Friday night in Lehigh Valley and one of my favorite summer past times is ready to roll. This past Friday was opening night for the World Series of Bicycling at the Valley Preferred Cycling Center.

This is racing at its best. But before I get to the elite international competition, I should mention that the all-organic concessions are wonderful. My dinner that night was a turkey club wrap, fries and a Coke, which could be a staple of mine there throughout the summer (I do have season tickets).

Bowling

The forecast was not pleasant for Lehigh Valley last night, with thunderstorms and tornado warnings flashing on tv screens…but we still wanted to do something fun. So why not bowling? Why not.

So down to the Emmaus Bowling Center we went, not knowing what would happen. I mean, the last time we went bowling was in our living room, or at least someone’s living room on the Wii.

Iron Pigs

I’m a baseball fanatic. I have my Major League allegiances and a few Fantasy Baseball allegiances, but that doesn’t take away from my local love for our Lehigh Valley IronPigs.

A few weeks ago I was ready to see my first game of the season, but the weather had other plans for me. No game, just rain. That’s fine; I had tickets for the April 11th game. It’s one I won’t soon forget.

TheSignatureSandwich

Have you ever been addicted to a sandwich? I mean really addicted. Do you go out and buy this addictive sandwich twice a week or more? I have such a sandwich; The Signature Sandwich at the Deli Plaza. Or is it Plaza Deli, I’ve heard it both ways. But no matter which way you say it, it’s always on the corner of 10th and Hamilton in Allentown.

They have a great menu and although I do order one sandwich most of the time, I don’t exclusively order it all the time. I’ve had their Ruben and their Chicken Tenders, which comes with fries … they do have great fries. I still need to try their Gyros and their burgers look good, too. I don’t think you can go wrong at the Deli Plaza, but I still believe everyone should try the Signature Sandwich.

Wednesday night found my fiancée and I in the Lehigh Valley Mall looking for a place to eat. It just so happens that one of my favorite places to eat in Lehigh Valley is in that very mall, Dunderbak’s.

I have partaken in many of their dishes, their krauts and their wursts, but my favorites come from the Double Decker Mealwiches section.

It was a rainy, windy day in Lehigh Valley and I was wondering how wet I’d have to get to go out and get lunch. My options were open, and time wasn’t an issue, but an umbrella won’t help with sideways rain. So, when the rain died down, I walked over to The Noshery…
