The Lehigh Valley Blog List

We're starting a new feature to The After Work Chronicles: a LV blog list. Just take a peek to your right. I've listed several blogs that have LV connections that I read on a regular basis. If you have any to add (or if you own one of these blogs and would prefer not to have extra readers head your way), leave a comment so we can add more in.

Whether you are a "local-yocal" or new to the LV, the many blogs written by LV residents will surely give you new ideas and new perspectives on our community.

LV Wines...and more!

Good wine doesn't just come from places like Napa & Bordeaux. It's not too late to experience a little of the LV wine culture. And, don't fret if you can't make this weekend's events. You can always experience the LV Wine Trail whenever you please.

This event will feature music, food, crafts, art and children’s activities that showcase the different cultures that make up our wonderfully diverse Allentown community.

Besides being a fun event for the entire family, it will also be educational and provide community building and ultimately, be an experience that will leave a lasting impression on all the attendees.

Celebrate Allentown will feature a variety of musical genres from around the world and will bring the PPL Plaza to life. The line-up includes:
