What we're about

Welcome! If you are foodies who enjoy great foods, you are invited to join us as we explore new restaurant venues in the local area with the goal of creating wonderful and long lasting friendships and memories. 
Please join us on Facebook to view photos of events and access announcements and other spontaneous meetups. The link is: https://www.facebook.com/groups/746021886235488/­
We take pride in that we are probably the only group in the local area that has a 95-100% attendance rate. During this horrid pandemic, we strive to maintain a fun-filled environment for our members while creating excellent rapport with our local businesses as well.
In order to participate in this group, you must be accountable for your behaviors around other professionals and drink and drive responsibly.
The following administrative rules are to be strictly observed.

ADMINISTRATIVE RULES
1. Be kind and courteous: We're all in this together to create a welcoming environment. Let's treat everyone with respect. Healthy debates are natural, but kindness is required.
2. No hate speech or bullying: Make sure everyone feels safe. Bullying of any kind isn't allowed, and degrading comments about things like race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender or identity will not be tolerated.
3. No promotions or spam: Give more than you take in this group. Self-promotion, spam and irrelevant links aren't allowed.
4. Respect everyone's privacy: Being part of this group requires mutual trust. Authentic, expressive discussions make groups great, but may also be sensitive and private. What's shared in the group should stay in the group.
5. Political discussions will not be tolerated: There is a place for politics but not in this group. Please take it elsewhere or risk being removed.
6. Commitment: Do not sign up unless you are certain that you will show up! Unless it is a genuine emergency, please refrain from signing up then cancel.
7. Accountability: If you signed up for events but repeatedly cancel, you will be removed from the group as determined by the organizer. We are now tracking those frequent “cancellers.”
8. Confirming your RSVP: Several days before the event, you will be REQUIRED to confirm your RSVP. If you do not confirm, you will be flagged as a cancellation and your RSVP will be removed.
9. Confirmed but cancel without an explanation: If you confirmed but withdraw without sending a message to the organizer explaining the reason for the cancellation (since arrangements with venues are usually made) you will be removed from the group.
10. Confirmed but fail to show: If you confirmed but fail to show up at the event (without a true emergency) you will immediately be removed from the group since we do not tolerate inconsiderate behaviors.

A Haunted Halloween in Bethlehem

Needs a location

UPDATE: As you may know, I have returned to school to do my doctoral work. It has only been one week and I am absolutely overwhelmed! Looking ahead, we scheduled this event at the Hotel Bethlehem on October 31st. Currently, there are 40 people who signed up for this event. Sadly, I will have exams and papers due that same day. For this reason, I will not be able to host. If you would like to do it on my behalf, please let me know and we can chat more. If I do not hear from anyone by October 15, the event will be cancelled. I apologize for the disappointment.

Hotel Bethlehem was erected in 1922. However, Bethlehem’s famous “first house,” built in 1741, was located on this site until 1823, when the Eagle Hotel replaced it. Then in 1921, Hotel Bethlehem took the Eagle’s place.

Room 932, unsurprisingly, is known to be filled with paranormal activities. A couple staying in the room reported being woken by a man standing in front of their bed asking “why are you in my room?” Only to find when they switched on the light, that no one was there.

There have been numerous accounts of seeing reflections in the mirrors that are not there a moment later. Guest of room 932, with no past knowledge of the hotel or the room in particular, have, frequently, reported unexplained happenings; papers standing upright, or flying off the desk, lamps flashing, the bathroom wallpaper turning pink? There are many pictures of 932 where “orbs” appear.

In April of 2007 the hotel invited a paranormal investigator to stay overnight in the room, he recorded many voices: “It’s Mary”, “What a beautiful bathroom”, “I’ve locked myself in the closet”, “Look out the window “

Watch for our foodie event on Halloween night 2022 (TBD) then we’ll take you on the tour of Room 932 complete with complementary wine and cheese service inside the room. But who dares to stay with me overnight? 😂
