Lots of Openings

by theelvee_w2oe3m

Not much new in the way of new restaurants around these parts other than the following openings:

Regional chain PJ Whelihan’s has just opened up on High Point Blvd just off of Schnoenersville Rd in Bethlehem.  Go forth and get your wings and beer on.

All Aboard Taste Station has opened up in the Main Street Commons in Bethlehem.  You can smell the delicious pretzels down the block…you’ve been warned.

What was supposed to take over the former Montana West location on Route 309 in Richland Township was Banderos, a Mexican cantina/line dancing joint.  It opened, briefly, and is now shut down again.  Much to our bemusement, the Facebook page operator has no clue about what happened and said they might be back open in September (?)

Rejoice, beer geeks, for Black & Blue is now open.  The former owner of Which Brew in Easton and the owner of Porter’s Pub have teamed up to open this rustic little craft beer joint sure to please those wanting a good Belgian pint.  The crew over at LVCraftBeer said they had Pannepot on right after they opened.  If they’re pulling those types of things you can bet your ass it’s going to be a solid selection.  Review forthcoming.

The Chilly Dog Shop has opened in Bethlehem on Broad St across from 7-11.  It appears they just have some regular summer food…hot dogs, ice cream, etc.  Stop in for a quick bite on your way downtown.

Anyone get to new PJs yet? Wondering what beer selection is like…. quality, quantity?

If I recall correctly down towards Philly they have a decent beer selection, even hosting some Philly Beer Week events. I haven’t been to any in the valley yet so can’t say if they’re equally as stocked.

I’m going tonight…will report back! I see they have Blue Moon pints for $2.75 on Saturdays. Good enough deal, might have one in this heat.

Spectacular selection on tap at PJ Whelihans. Overwhelming. At least 4 different IPAs. 2 lambics. Several summer beers. A few stoudts. I believe the list numbered 31. I had a Yards IPA and a Michigan-based Dark Horse Crooked Tree IPA, both of which were outstanding. Ask for a printed menu of the beers. You get a great list with ABV’s, prices and tasting notes. Oh, they serve food, too! 🙂 Enjoy.
