Barring any natural phenemonon, we are anticipating a dry and sunny weekend with temperatures in the 50s and plenty to do in Bethlehem!

1. Second Friday

Yes, that is correct. All of the specials and festivities that are usually reserved for the first Friday have been postponed to this very day. Since many in the South Side especially were without power last week, proceeds and donations that are made during the evening will go to the Red Cross.

2. Watch Arthur Miller’s The Crucible

In the rigid theocracy of Salem, rumors that women are practicing witchcraft galvanize the town’s most basic fears and suspicions. Winner of the 1953 Tony Award for Best Play, Arthur Miller’s searing portrait of a community engulfed by superstition, madness, paranoia and malice remains one of his most produced plays. Kashi Johnson directs the show at Zoellner’s Diamond Theatre. You can see it Friday or Saturday night at 8pm or Sunday afternoon at 2pm.

3. Northampton Community College Open Mic and Floor Night

Marvel at the talents of Northampton Community College students in performances of dance, music, spoken word and everything in between at 6:30pm on Friday night at their campus. Tickets are just $3 for students and $5 for adults.

4. Check out hip-hop celebrity Bow Wow

He’ll be at the Vision Bar on Saturday night at 10pm. A dynamic nightclub atmosphere, premier DJs, and now one of the hottest celebrities around. Head over on November 10th for your Ticket to Fame as Bow Wow hosts an unforgettable event.  Dress to impress and there’s no cover charge before midnight!

5. Cheer on Lehigh Men’s Basketball team

Their season opener is this Friday at 5pm and you can catch it on all the local channels as they take on Baylor. The 2011-12 Lehigh men’s basketball season was one to remember. The Mountain Hawks won a school-record 27 games and took home their second Patriot League Championship in three years, capping it off with a historic 75-70 NCAA Tournament win over Duke. Lehigh captured the nation’s attention and looks primed to continue the success into this coming year.
