I have the best of friends a girl could ask for in life. After channeling my inner Naomi Campbell, my friends met me out for a belated birthday celebration at the Bethlehem Sands Casino honoring the best of the Lehigh Valley. The event themed, Cirque du Style, was a lively event showcasing the best food & drink, health & wellness, shopping & beauty, leisure & recreation, entertainment & nightlife, services & help and kids & family in the region–many establishments my family and I have frequented and loved. Winners were revealed in the June edition of Lehigh Valley Style.
We enjoyed a red-carpet arrival, performances by aerials, acrobats, and delicious food and drink. My favorites were from Allentown Brew Works, Catering by Karen Hunter, Cheesecakes by Chester, Chickie’s & Pete’s, and the The MINT Gastropub. I had a grilled cheese and tomato bisque that was well worth the admission fee alone!

The benefeciary of the event was a local nonprofit organization founded by Shane Burcaw dedicated to helping people overcome adversity through the use of humor, while raising money for Muscular Dystrophy research. Shane hosted a book signing at the event of his newly released novel, Laughing at My Nightmare.
It was so exciting to be part of such an incredible night with my friends, celebrating my birthday AND the best of the Lehigh Valley!
