Blog posts about Easton, Pennsylvania.
We're almost back to normal after Hurricane Sandy. We got power back Wednesday night, we got our landline, cable, and Internet late Thursday morning, and today the college where I work got power back after being down for most of this week. Easton, Pa. isn't 100% yet; I have a few friends who still don't have power, but we're getting closer to normalcy.
Hurricane Sandy has come and gone, living much of Northampton County, Pa. without power. Most of College Hill -- including Lafayette College -- doesn't have power, though there are a few streets where the lights are still on.
Two Rivers Brewing in Easton, Pa. has been running a kickstarter for the last month to pay for their new state of the art draft system, which will make sure that their beer is served perfectly. They made their $20,000 goal over the weekend, but there's still another two days to participate. There are no stretch goals mentioned, but it remains a good opportunity to help out a local brewer and get some nifty Two Rivers Brewing swag. Check out the kickstarter.
The 16th annual Pinball Wizards convention is being held May 1-3, 2009 at Allentown Fairgrounds AgriPlex. How I managed to miss this for the first 15 years it was held, I have no idea, but I've got to figure out a way to go this year. They've got game tournaments for adults and kids, a pinball-related flea market, vendors, machines for sale and a whiole slew of pinball machines (about half of Ag Hall, from what I hear) that you can play as part of the admission price.
