Sushi

Saturday, Don and I were shopping at Elias Market in Allentown and ran into Jae Chung, the owner of Ichiban Japanese Steak House. I just happened to be wearing my “sushi socks” (as opposed to my “martini socks”) and the coincidence was just too great to ignore! Needless to say we headed over to Catasauqua Road to scarf down their Sushi and Sashimi Lunch Combo. Great deal for $13.95 since it includes miso soup and salad too.

This weekend, my girlfriend and I attended a wedding of a long time friend in Lehigh Valley. The ceremony was held at the beautiful United Church of Christ in Bethlehem. Following the ceremony, we had some time to kill before the reception, so roughly 30 of us made our way to The Tally Ho in south Bethlehem to get a head start on things. I don’t think The Tally Ho was expecting a mad rush of thirsty wedding goers on a Saturday afternoon, but the college tavern manned up and took care of business.

Following “The Ho,” which it is referred to by the brainiacs at Lehigh University, we made our way over to the Best Western on 512 where the reception was held. To many of the guests’ surprise, the 30 and over divorcé meat market that usually is The Bar With No Name was transformed into a lovely cocktail area with tasty hors d’oeuvres – can’t go wrong with the bacon wrapped scallops. There was also violin and keyboard players for the guests’ musical delight.

Can_you_keep_a_secret

I want to let you in on a little secret: All of the posts on this blog are written by staff members of the Lehigh Valley Convention and Visitors Bureau. Our posts are about things we’ve experienced and enjoy in the Lehigh Valley region.

No one influences us to write about one attraction or event over another. We don’t get paid by the businesses or organizations we write about either. We’re just regular people who live and work in Lehigh Valley writing about stuff we like.
