New News

The Eastern PA Business Journal shared some good news this week about some developments in the Lehigh Valley. If you don't subscribe (or read it at the office), it's actually a great source of tips for what's going on. Unfortunately, they don't post much news on their web site, so you either need to read the paper version or hear about it from bloggers who are too busy with weddings to go out and get news this week!
  • Montana West (1030 Route 309 Quakertown) opened a second dance club, next to the bar where you can still ride the mechanical bull between line dances. The new night spot, called Storm, is supposed to resemble a Las Vegas night club.
  • A new building that will house Cosmopolitan Restaurant is going up at 20 N. Sixth Street in Allentown. In fine Lehigh Valley tradition, this place will probably be known as "the restaurant where Sal's Spaghetti House used to be," at least for a while. There will be an upscale restaurant including a rooftop bar and dining area. It's right across the street from Allentown Symphony Hall and might fill the fine-dining void on that end of Hamilton left by Federal Grill.
  • Hyatt Place (45 West North Street, Historic Bethlehem) is taking reservations beginning October 24, just in time for Christmas City USA festivities. Unfortunately, there isn't any event space or restaurant on-site, just amenities for hotel guests.

I don't think the recession is over, but these are all good signs!
