2. Start Making Sense: Talking Heads Tribute

Saturday from 9pm to Midnight, Starfish Brasserie, 51 W. Broad St., Bethlehem

Ok, whether or not you like the Talking Heads, if you haven’t seen this act, you just have to. This is one of the most incredible local music performances you will see in the Valley… I promise. And if you do like the Talking Heads… you are in for a real treat. Just don’t be surprised if you’re still thinking about it on Sunday. And the drinks at Starfish are sublime.

6. 2010 Kilted Celtic Crawl

Sunday from 10am to 6pm, Northside to Southside Bethlehem

I don’t think a kilt is required to do this crawl (and raise money for Celtic Classic… now that’s drinking for a good cause!) From their fb event page: Join us on June 6th as we march down Main Street in Bethlehem, PA with pipe bands and all your friends from the Celtic Cultural Alliance (CCA), as we make our way to the south side of Bethlehem to enjoy an afternoon visiting local pubs, interesting shops and other attractions. A pub crawl will be organized when we reach the Steel Memorial. We will come together again at a designated time at the Steel Memorial and parade back to north side of town. We will make one more pub stop on the north side.

7. Easton Yoga –  Flow Yoga Class with Live Tabla

Sunday from 10am to Noon, Easton Yoga, 524 Northampton St., Easton

If you’re looking for some extra motivation to get to a yoga class, this could do it. This 2 hour yoga class with Alicia of Easton Yoga will be accompanied by live tabla by Easton native and Bethlehem resident Jamie Kostura. Don’t know what tabla is? Go here.
