Vegetarian customers can get their fill of chlorophyll with the baked eggplant meshed with fresh tomatoes and basil and sprinkled with parmesan cheese ($12.95). To add a layer of melody to the meal, The Nutty Pear occasionally showcases live acts including steel guitar blues artists, jazz musicians, and robots belting out karaoke favorites.
When the original Philly Soft Pretzel Factory location had a line out the door, its founders knew they had a hit on their hands. That was in 1998; today, over 100 franchise locations serve their special-recipe soft pretzels. Each chewy treat is hand twisted, baked fresh, and served hot from the oven into the customer's waiting hands, or mouth if they're really hungry. Pretzels can be topped with traditional salt, or spiced up with garlic or sesame seeds, while a selection of dipping sauces ranging from cheddar cheese to sweet chocolate provide layers of dunking flavor. And for those who prefer their baked goods meaty, dough-wrapped dogs and cheesesteak-filled pretzels are available.
Recipients of the Meteor Ireland Music Award's 2008 Lifetime Achievement Award, the five-piece Irish rock band The Saw Doctors attack the stage with a musical vigor that turns concert-goers into concert-stayers and have created an international following of tapping toes and envious guitars. Amid lofted arena ceilings and rustic woodwork, raucously bob your head as the band plucks and toots their musical vessels to tracks from their latest album, The Further Adventures of The Saw Doctors, as well as their well-known hits, including "I Useta Lover" and "About You Now". From the premium reserved area, patrons can sing along with lead singer Davy Carton, shout in approval of epic guitar solos, and show off their shredding air-accordion chops.

While peering through the glass-covered hole in the floor of Flow Bar and Restaurant, you may catch a glimpse of a featured item on next week's menu swimming through the underground Mauch Chunk Creek. Executive chef Zachary Pelliccio—whose farm-based upbringing informs his ultra-fresh fare—procures produce and earthy high-fives from the hands of Lehigh Valley and Pocono-area farmers as well as meat, poultry, and eggs from the likes of Spring Mountain Farms of Lehighton. Pelliccio crafts starters such as a duck rillette with cranberry and green-tea preserves and large plates including a grass-fed burger on house-baked brioche, realizing the edible portion of the renovation dream of co-owners Victor Stabin and Joan Morykin. The husband-and-wife team bought the circa-1850 stone building in 2004. Temporarily trading his paintbrushes and her journalist's laptop for a hammer and nails, Stabin and Morykin and a team of artisans conducted a overhaul lasting four years. The historic space has been a wire mill, silk mill, and toy factory, and now also houses art classes and galleries featuring the work of local artists, including Stabin himself. One gallery is devoted to encouraging children's creativity and has showcased the talents of the couple's two young daughters.
