Sitting in rush hour traffic? You might as well be sitting in a café in Bethlehem during rush hour.
Merchants in the Lehigh County town are advertising their businesses in a way to get aggravated drivers out of the traffic and into their establishments.
The traffic in the area stems from road reconstruction in the South Side along 3rd street. Many businesses offer discounts to those who mention “beat the traffic” or say, “this traffic sucks.”
Try a small coffee and yogurt for a buck at Euro Yogurt to get you through your morning commute or $5 pitchers of beer and half-price appetizers at Molly’s Irish Grille & Sports Pub on your way home.
There are a number of other shops in the area that offer rush hour discount.
