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.

Save me a seat!
