Yes, I said classic car season.

Barista at Cosmic Cup

The greatest love affair in my life is the one I have with my daily cup of coffee. To me, coffee is so much more than the human fuel that makes waking up in the morning bearable. I look forward to a great cup of coffee the way five-year-olds anticipate the magic of Christmas morning.

Where to find that vinyl

For the last several years, the vinyl music format has experienced something of a renaissance, particularly amongst young listeners. More and more record labels, both major and independent, are offering a vinyl option for new releases. Earlier this year, the Washington Post reported that vinyl record sales have hit their highest point since 1997. Is this merely the product of temporary, casual nostalgia for bygone days, or is it something more? While this news may come as a surprise to some, it makes perfect sense to me.

Storm Chasers Shine in Lehigh Valley

Last night the minor league baseball season ended with the Omaha Storm Chasers triumphing over the Durham Bulls in the Gildan Triple-A National Championship game. It was a good game and a great event. There really was something for everyone yesterday at Coca-Cola Park.

At 2 p.m., in the parking lot of our beautiful baseball paradise, there was the “Ultimate Tailgate Party” presented by 99.9 the Hawk. Open to the public and with discounted food and beverages, free games to play, a chance to win $99,000 and good music, it was the perfect afternoon retreat for a night of championship baseball.

Roosevelt's 21 in Bethlehem

Fall brings around a few of my favorite thing: apples, sweaters, pumpkin everything, but most importantly- football.  But these seventeen Sundays, filled with cheering at the TV (or yelling, depending on how things are looking), can’t just be spent sitting on the couch at home alone.  We’ve got some great places in Lehigh Valley to sit down for a game or three.  I’ve compiled a list of some of my favorites; see if you agree!

If you’re looking for a game-watching location with prime television options, check out Roosevelt’s. Both the Allentown and Bethlehem locations have tons of TV’s so that you can keep track of all your fantasy players at once, and their food is fantastic too.  $5 nachos during NFL games? Save me a seat!
