Photo of the Day: August 3, 2018

A shot of Justin fooling around at Bethlehem Steel on our most recent vacation. People ask how I can be a food blogger and not be 800 pounds. Staying active, especially while traveling, is the key. We were up at 6:30 AM each morning at the hotel to workout. We climbed a mountain. Walked 250…

Restaurant Review: Tavern at the Sun Inn (Bethlehem, PA)

When Justin and I arrived on a Monday and walked around Bethlehem, we were immediately drawn to the Sun Inn. The building was erected in 1758 and currently serves as a full service restaurant, distillery, and museum. My being a history lover made this a must-visit. However, we had to wait until Wednesday (our last…

Restaurant Review: Nawab (Bethlehem, PA)

On every vacation I have ever taken, no matter how great the overall experience was, I manage to find one dud of a restaurant. On our four-day sojourn through Pennsylvania, we wanted to have a touch of culture. I am a passionate consumer of Indian cuisine. Justin is newly getting into it, and after a…

Restaurant Review: The Joint (Bethlehem, PA)

After an excellent lunch at Thai Thai, Justin and I hit up a small coffee shop called The Joint which is in an alleyway and off the beaten path. The inside was cute. They had chalkboard walls with their menu colorfully presented. A list of recommended books on another wall was a nice touch. But…

Another one from the Beer Garden of the Bucks County Playhouse. They had several games set up including corn hole, Connect Four, and Jenga pictured here. We took out as many blocks as we could…before leaving it for the next people.

Restaurant Review: Thai Thai (Bethlehem, PA)

We are now into restaurant review five of eight, and we have our winner for the trip. While, for the most part, we had great food in our four-day excursion, Justin and I both agreed this was the best. We were walking around town looking for a place to grab lunch. The historic Sun Inn…

Restaurant Review: China Star (Bethlehem, PA)

Bethlehem on a Monday night is sleepy. Bethlehem on a Monday night after 10 PM after a few hours at the casino is dead. We searched online and drove around trying to find something. Anything. When it seemed like our only option was a Perkins, we did one more search and found a nearby Chinese…

Restaurant Review: Ripper’s Pub (Bethlehem, PA)

Bethlehem is loaded with many fine restaurants. That much is apparent. But as Justin and I walked around town (this being my first-ever visit), nothing spoke to us. We finally found one place that we wanted to try only to realize a few moments later that it was closed. It was a Monday after all….

Travel PA 2018 Part 3: Lights Out at Crystal Cave

This entire story is the result of happenstance. Right place, right time. Fate…if you will. The one thing Justin really wanted to do on this vacation was take me to Crystal Cave. He enjoyed it so much on his previous visit years ago, that he said we had to go. I actually altered my hotel…
