By Guest Blogger, Gary Kantor

Good times were had just over a week ago at the Musikfest Café presented by Yuengling  in Bethlehem. Before Al Stewart and Firefall even took the stage, our party of three was treated to some amazing food including the parmesan garlic fries suggested by our very knowledgeable server Rich, who also recommended Woo Woo’s off the drink specials. A show with some adult beverages surely couldn’t disappoint, and neither the food nor the drinks or the show would.

Gingerbread Sun Inn

By Colleen Ellwood-Surdoval I’m writing this blog entry as the lucky recipient of Discover Lehigh Valley’s Ultimate Paranormal Experience.  As part of this contest, I, along with my sister, Michelle, had the opportunity to join  a supernatural investigation of the Sun Inn in Bethlehem conducted by the good folks at Lights Out Paranormal on Halloween.

Prior to examining the scary haunts of The Sun Inn, we were given a tour of the historical significance of the building.  We learned that the Inn was originally located in the outskirts of town to host visiting guests of the Moravian community in the 18th century.

They played with such well-developed expertise that the instrument seemed to be a part of them.

Ok. I’ll admit it. I have never seen an Alfred Hitchcock movie. So when I decided to see the play version of “The 39 Steps” at Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival on Thursday’s preview night, I had no idea what to expect. All I knew from reading the description on the web site was that the cast consisted of only four actors who would be playing all of the roles and I honestly wondered how they were going to pull that off.
