That's what they said about the BrewWorks downtown, and the Iron Pigs. BrewWorks is packed every weekend and the iron Pigs will continue to sell out this spring.Pig Pen is poorly managed. The staff are idiots, the place is way too loud on the weekends and they seem to charge covers every single night like they're in NYC.
Throw in that smoke bar they have in the back that has no ventilation and it's just icing on the cake. It's a hot place to go now, but wait until summer rolls around and people have other stuff to do.
What's better yet, is when some of the new places in Bethlehem open up. Nobody wants to visit Allentown, but at the moment Pig Pen has it's niche.
It won't last long though.
I think people secretly love Allentown. They feel cool coming here or something.
