Went to a very cool beer bar with excellent food in Allentown, PA today.
The Liberty Street Ale House on 23rd and Liberty right by Muhlenburg College.
Very good tap list, $6 Moosehead pitchers on a Saturday which is quite worth it and a decent beer. And hundreds of different craft beer bottles including some very premium Belgium beers and 22s.
The Pulled Pork Sandwich was great, and the Cream of Crawfish soup was delicious.
I will say the service wasn’t great and could have used a 3rd server.
But, as I went to the bar instead of a table. Someone lit up a cigarette a couple of seats over that blew in my face. It’s not pleasant.
Moved back to the table. But, I realized how much more pleasant bars are without smoking.
Yes, for some patrons who like to smoke it’s frustrating. There are lots of people that love drinking beer and chain smoking in bars.
But, for non-smokers it opens up everywhere. Smoke in your face doesn’t make you want to hand around somewhere.
So, I am glad smoking bans are in place. But I certainly think it’s fine with places with outside patios to allow smoking but inside in a bar it’s frankly obnoxious.
So, I would definitely go back there but I really do prefer people smoking outside. Sorry smokers.
So, smoke, smoke, smoke that cigarette. Puff, puff, puff and if you smoke yourself to death tell St. Peter at the Golden Gate you hate to make them wait, you just have to have another cigarette.
