"Blues, brews and barbecue are all key ingredients for summer fun"

Alcohol is definitely a key ingredient to summer fun. Hopefully your summer fun does not include a DUI or a vehicular manslaughter charge. With each and every drink, a driver is impaired and most likely by mid way through the second drink the driver is legally drunk. If The City of Allentown and LVEDC promote the taking of alcohol, including making an event where taking alcohol is a central theme and encouraged by them are they then responsible should a driver be involved in a motor vehicle accident?

It is nice to try and get people down town. The City of Allentown has changed too much for people to have fun and feel safe. When I moved to the area in 1981, we enjoyed shopping at Hess's and eating at restaurants. It is ashame what has happened to the city.

I heard this was pretty cool, sorry we missed it. Have to keep it in mind for next time...
Lighten up, fat Blue Mayor Smurf! It's called having a designated driver for events like this one. Better yet, how cool for the people that could walk to this!
