    Local 44 will be in Spruce Hill, but you’re right–this Cedar Parker is celebrating!

    Sure sounds a whole lot like the institute. Immitation is the most sincere form of flattery.

    Actually it sure sounds a lot like their Memphis Taproom which opened b e f o r e the Institute.

    The Institute IS a great bar.(kitchen coming within two months)…But the combined creative genius of Lee and Brendan don’t have to imitate anyone.

    GFY–I’ll deal with you personally. Not cool. MTR is great and Local44 will be great as well.
    GFY2 Thanks.

    Maybe next they’ll come to South Philly?! We need more pubs with good beers and good food!!
