The Lambretta Jamboree will be based out of an area known as Southside Bethlehem, Lehigh Valley, PA. This is the area that Bethlehem Steel was based out of, in the shadow of the Steel Stacks/Blast Furnace. The area is chock full of bars and restaurants, all in walking distance of the hotel, as is the Sands Casino. Yes, there will again be gambling at a Lammy Jammy.
