At Socialsport Dance Club, the instructors specialize in first dances, whether it's for your wedding or it's literally your first dance. During private and group lessons, they walk beginners through one of 13 ballroom dances, including the foxtrot, waltz, and rumba. For more upbeat movements, the studio also hosts swing cha cha and salsa classes that can burn more calories than a four-hour tango.
Whenever Without A Cue Productions throws a party, someone is killed. But within 90 minutes, the culprit is always named.
Without A Cue's actors lead participants through murder mystery dinners, killing off willing victims and helping guests solve the murder. The dynamic cast slips into character easily, whether they're performing at Peddler's Village and Fisher's Tudor House or at a private in-home party. These can take place in a living room, out in a backyard, or in a crawlspace.
Before the event, guests receive a packet of information. As soon as they arrive to the party, they're greeted by cast members, who drop clues as the guests mingle. It's the party-goers' job to find them and then try to figure out whodunit.
Blue Mountain Vineyards owners, Joe and Vickie, are pinot pioneers. Beginning with a 5-acre experiment in 1986, they discovered that the soil of the Lehigh Valley does a fine impression of French terrain, making it suitable for growing the grapes of cabernet sauvignon, chardonnay, and other European varietals. Since then, they've expanded to a 50-acre plot, where they now produce wines that have won awards from the Fingerlake International Wine Competition and Appellation America.
Panoramic views of the Blue Mountains overlook scenic terraces at the vineyards, where grapes spring from soil that soldiers roamed during the Revolutionary War. Tastings, concerts, and other events fill the winery's glass-flanked deck, spilling onto an outdoor patio surrounded by ponds as tranquil as a silent lullaby. Visitors admire the vines during tours, and they can also adopt their favorites to preserve the vines' flavorful histories.
Rockabilly crooners serenade an inked-up array of diners at The Blue Comet Bar and Grill, where chefs bebop over stoves laden with a menu's worth of succulent steaks, sandwiches, and seafood. Homemade soups ($3.50/cup; $4.25/bowl) prelude piping-hot sandwiches such as the grilled peanut butter and jelly ($5.25) or the home-cooked meatloaf and cheese ($7.25). A half dozen cold sandwiches shuffle onto salvers decked in hearty mounds of ham, roast beef, or liverwurst and onions ($6.25+) and nestled between slices of swirled rye or rare Johnny Cash LPs.
