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.

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!
