The Lehigh gridiron sizzles with the meaty tackles and scorching sprints of the Yale Bulldogs, who have nabbed the Patriot League crown eight times in the past 20 years. Senior quarterback Chris Lum earned first-team All-Patriot League honors in 2010 after completing 58% of his passes for 2,881 yards, then landed the Sports Network's Offensive Player of the Week title for scoring four touchdowns and stealing the referee's hat at Lehigh's season opener against Monmouth. Having transitioned from linebacker to defensive lineman, senior Ben Flizack hopes to top last year's 36 tackles and 2.5 sacks. Today’s Groupon teams with the United Way of Greater Lehigh Valley to celebrate Educator Appreciation Day with school spirit and a giant, freshly polished apple orbiting above the stadium.

Touchstone Theatre's Young Playwrights’ Festival presents a 90-minute evening of student works penned by third- to eighth-grade playwrights in Touchstone's lab residences. During educational residencies held at various schools, Touchstone's passionate ensemble instructs miniature Shakespeares in the art of playwriting and feather-quill throwing. Seven student plays are invigorated by the creative enthusiasm of community directors, skillfully produced by Touchstone Theatre, brought to life by vital performers, and finally storyboarded in stone by talented masons. After the final curtain, theatergoers can indulge their clapping and cheering impulses throughout a closing awards ceremony.
The Steel Pub’s interior draws its inspiration from the location’s former tenants—Bethlehem Steel—by incorporating decorative flourishes such as red- and white-striped walls, exposed duct work, and a horseshoe-shaped bar encased in corrugated steel. An industrial-style garage door crafted from steel and glass opens up to an outside patio where patrons can sip beers amid the otherworldly glow emitted from the nearby Bethlehem Steel blast furnace. A 40-foot window near the bar bestows guests with views of the pub’s other neighbor, The Steel Ice Center, whose hockey players and rogue ice sculptors choreograph a steady stream of activity on the sidewalk.
Out of sight, chefs compile 15 different handheld meals using locally sourced ingredients whenever possible. They infuse Stryker Farm bratwursts with Weyerbacher craft ale and blend beef chuck and brisket to serve as the base for burgers topped with fried shallots or wing sauce. To accompany these rib-sticking morsels, they slave over pots of homemade sides and starters such as french 5 onion soup and buffalo-chicken dip.
The minds behind The Bookstore Speakeasy know that the Roaring Twenties were about more than drinking bathtub gin and trying not to accidentally bathe in bathtub gin. The restaurant fully immerses patrons in the period, lighting their tables with candles and oil lamps and filling their ears with the bombast of live 1920s- and '30s-style jazz. And the bartenders behind their copper counter give a nod to the bootleggers of the past by preparing classic cocktails such as the Manhattan, the Rob Roy, and the Old Fashioned with fresh juices and hand-carved ice.
Yet the sizable selection of craft beers demonstrates the restaurant's willingness to incorporate some contemporary touches into the speakeasy experience, as does its menu of snacks and entrees. Between sips, groups can share artisanal meats and cheeses, crabmeat-stuffed mushrooms, and flatbreads topped with duck confit, plum-barbecue sauce, and smoked gouda.
A mechanical bull bucks in Deuces Wild Buckin' Bull Saloon, Valley Forge Casino Resort's onsite rock-‘n’-roll and country bar. Revelers clad in cowboy boots strut through line dances with drinks in hand beneath the dance floor's green and blue lights. But unlike the Wild West, there's no blazing desert outside. Instead, there are 3,600 lush acres of national-park land, whose hiking trails hibernate beneath glinting winter snow. Inside the hotel, 600 slot machines and 50 tables of blackjack, craps, and roulette fill the casino. Seven onsite restaurants cater to different cravings: there's casual sushi at Asianoodle, and Pacific Prime's upscale atmosphere complements dishes such as maine lobster and loch duart scottish salmon.
