Just about every night at 8 p.m., two musicians take their seats at opposing baby grand pianos, and the show at Jollys Dueling Piano Bar begins. For the next, say, six or so hours, they'll belt out crowd favorites by Billy Joel and Lady Gaga, pausing to take audience requests or serenade a birthday honoree. But even without the rollicking performance, there would be plenty to draw people to the bar—namely, the food and drinks. A rotating list of craft beers and sweet cocktails complements a menu of spicy bacon burgers, goat cheese flatbreads, and housemade guacamole.
Pierogi, kielbasy, kolacky, and more—S&D Polish Deli, a Polish store and restaurant, features imported and housemade Polish and Eastern European food and products. In the kitchen, all the food is made according to time-tested family recipes, which leads many customers to enter the store and feel transported to their grandmother's kitchen. Cooking classes are also offered for those who want to try their own hand at tasty Polish meals and treats.
Importing seafood from across the world, the fanciful fishmongers at Adelphia outfit a nautical menagerie of fresh fish species($6–$20/pound), plus lobster, shrimp, and crab, as well as in-house salads and dips. Although prices and selection fluctuate with worldwide availability and narwhal whims, recent featured fish include encrusted corvina, wild haddock, and fresh swordfish steaks. Search for invisible pearls of wisdom in a batch of 100 topneck clams, or partake in protein-enriched appetizers with bacon-wrapped scallops. Adelphia's saltwater wundercooks also dish out fresh soups, such as Maryland crab ($3.09/14 oz.), as well as a peloton of gold-label dips in flavors such as shrimp, lobster, Cajun Krab ($2.99/7 oz., subject to market fluctuation), and the Ahab-appeasing White Whale Worchester.
Founded on Christmas Eve in 1741 by a small group of Moravian settlers and christened “Christmas City, USA” in 1937, Bethlehem shines a light on the past with year-round guided tours and museum exhibits. The 10.9-mile Heritage Trail snakes through 80 historic stops, including two National Historic Landmark and the National Historic Landmark Districts of Historic Moravian Bethlehem as well as Victorian-era homes. On historic walks, guides lead tour groups through the now-defunct site of Bethlehem Steel, the city’s oldest cemetery, and the 1762 Waterworks, known as the first municipally pumped water system in the country.
The Kemerer Museum Of Decorative Arts is one of only 15 of its kind in the country. And located inside the 1741 Gemeinhaus, the Moravian Museum of Bethlehem curates a collection of exhibits about the town’s settlers, including their missionary work, education system, and medical technique—a wealth of information that's earned the museum the title of Best Historic Spot on the Lehigh Valley’s Happening List.

Gee whiz, Skip, is it true that Cheeburger Cheeburger's been voted Best Burger in 29 Cities? Yup. Cheeburger Cheeburger, Frazer alone has been voted Best Burger by the readers of Main Line Media News for 2011, 2012, 2013, and 2014. This is a real 1950s-style hot spot. This is a place that takes pride in serving additive-free, 100% all-natural Angus beef and frothy milk shakes in thousands of possible flavors.
