November First Friday in Bethlehem

Now that the election is over, please turn your attention to the monthly First Friday celebration in Bethlehem (November 6, 6-10 p.m. on the South Side). I picked up an event guide at Cleo's when I was in shopping for a birthday gift for Mom.

Tonight, there are:

  • Six places to catch live music and enjoy art and shopping: Stone Soup Studios (301 Broadway), Comfort Suites (120 W. Third St.), Cleo's Silversmith Studio & Gallery (21 E. Third St.), Lehigh Bookstore (Campus Square), Fox Optical (28 E. Third St.) and of course, a DJ at Home & Planet (25 E. Third St.)
  • Five great places to shop for holiday gifts: Shuze (17 E. Third St.), Tallarico's Chocolates (26 E. Third St.), Monsoon (11 E. Third St.), Loose Threads (9 W. Fourth St.), and Cutters Bike Shop (418 E. Third St).
  • Two new exhibitions at The Banana Factory (25 W. Third St.) and Fox Optical

  • Two ways to work off those wings: Dancing at Northampton Community College's Fowler Family Center (511 E. 3rd St) and skating at the Steel Ice Center (Corner of Polk & 1st)
  • A million places to have dinner within four blocks: 23 East Asian Bistro, La Lupita, Tulum, Alexandra's Bistro, Lehigh Pub, General Zapata's, Nawab Indian, The Olive Branch, Thai Kitchen, Starters, Michael's Steaks, Sal's Pizza, Lehigh Pizza, Campus Pizza, Sotto Santi, Goosey Gander, Blue Sky Cafe, Wildflower Cafe, and Dave's Deli and Gelato (I am sure I have forgotten some, but those are a good start.)
  • Eight places to booze up after all of the other activities "officially end" at 10 p.m.: Starters Riverport (17 W. Second St), Comfort Suites, Looper's Grille & Bar (313 E. 3rd St.)afeaturing a winter wine tasting, JP Macgrady, Funhouse, Firehouse, Tally Ho, and the brand-new Bookstore Speakeasy
