Whether you’re traveling to Bethlehem from near or far, this itinerary is sure to tickle you. This week, we think it’s time to really treat yourself.


Have your reservations ready for the Musical Brunch at the Historic Hotel Bethlehem. Consistently rated one of the best brunches in the entire Lehigh Valley, this decadent buffet surely won’t disappoint. The robust buffet is complemented by live musicians featuring harpsichord, harp, piano, and jazz duos.  Whether you desire made-to-order omelets or waffles, the carving station of roasted meats, fresh seafood or luscious desserts, there is something for everyone.


Feeling totally spoiled already, why not get a haircut too? Is there anything more luxurious feeling than someone else washing your hair? Nope. So walk down to American Hairlines and really get pampered. A haircut may seem more like an errand than a day trip, so consider any of the awesome spa treatments that they also offer.


Catch art-house film The Master at SteelStacks. Starring Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Joaquin Phoenix, this is a 1950s-set drama centered on the relationship between a charismatic intellectual known as “the Master” (Philip Seymour Hoffman) whose faith-based organization begins to catch on in America, and a young drifter who becomes his right-hand man (Joaquin Phoenix). It won three awards at the Venice International Film Festival – definitely worth checking out!


Since you’re already in South Side, check out some of the great stores in this side of Bethlehem like Briana’s Boutique for the ladies and Homebase Skateshop for the gentlemen. You’ll be sure to find something great, maybe even something that you want to change into for the Bethlehem Fashion Show tonight!


Cocktail hour at the Bethlehem Fashion Show with open bar, passed appetizers, and food for purchase at chef-attended stations. Mingle with the boutique owners at their pop-up shops, and get your picture taken at the Style Wall, or with the Bethlehem Mounted Police, who will be making a celebrity appearance.

Once you’ve let your hair down, you’ll be seated for the hottest runway show of the year. There’s not a bad seat in the house. DJ Discreet will serenade you as you enjoy the latest fashions from fifteen Downtown Bethlehem Boutiques.  You’ll get an exclusive look at the City’s finest fall and holiday trends, before they’ve even hit the racks. Models will feature hair and make-up by local salons and stylists. After the show, enjoy an After Party presented by B104: two hours of “attendees only” private shopping, chef stations with food for purchase, a cash bar, and a chance to meet the models an backstage crew, all while you enjoy a LIVE concert performance by The Waffle Stompers.

Tickets are $45 per person, and include the cocktail hour, runway show, and after-party. AFTER-PARTY ONLY tickets also available for $10, for those who cannot attend the pre-party and runway show. Corporate Packages also available. Click Here for Tickets! Only 500 individuals will get the chance to attend this once-a-year, exclusive Fashion Show. Don’t miss it!
