Another way to find out what's going on in the Lehigh Valley

I received an email from Apollo Grill this weekend, which reminded me of one of the secrets to figuring out what's happening in the Lehigh Valley: don't just read "traditional media," get your news straight from the source. Some businesses have Facebook pages. Others are active on Twitter (@blackforestdeli is a good one to follow). Some have an e-newsletter (Step in 4 Mor's and Shuze's always let me know when the sale is on). Some just send an old-fashioned email. And some do a combination of these, and more. Apollo's tipped me off to an upcoming dining event in Bethlehem:
Bethlehem’s Winter Restaurant Week is right around the corner Jan. 30 through Feb. 5th! Enjoy a three course prix fixe menu for lunch at $15.11 and a 4 course prix fixe menu at dinner for $30.11. Apollo’s regular menu will also be offered that week! We would recommend calling for reservations since it is a busy week! We will post the Restaurant Week menus on our website and Facebook a week before, so check it out.
Each time you dine at a participating Restaurant Week restaurant you will receive a contest slip, which you can use to enter a drawing to win a gift certificate for a breakfast, lunch or dinner for two from EACH participating restaurant (a $2,000 value). Receive another entry when you spend $10 at participating retail locations during Restaurant Week. I usually hear about upcoming events from participating businesses that I follow online or when I stop by to shop or eat... they are planning way ahead and always have the inside scoop on whether something is worth going to. And by the way, Apollo is ABSOLUTELY worth going to anytime, but I second their recommendation... always make a reservation. In my opinion, it is the toughest table to get in town. (Although if you can't get a seat, Starfish Brasserie and Edge Restaurant, 1/2 a block away in either direction, are awesome.) The food is phenomenal, the service is outstanding, and it is one of the best places to see-and-be-seen in the Valley. Here's a full list of participating Restaurant Week restaurants.
