Greatest Hits and What You Missed: Talula’s, Tashan, $1 Beers and Philly’s Official Cocktail

Booze.

That’s what this week was about: booze, booze and more booze. Sure, we covered some news (a new chef at Talula’s Garden, Tashan’s opening, Japan’s cesium-fighting culinary isolationism), and we talked about food (pho and figs and our new guide to Philly’s Restaurant Week), but mostly, it seemed, we were thinking with our livers and chasing down every single alcohol-related tip that came our way.

Which isn’t a bad thing. Check out below for stories of gin, birthdays, $1 microbrews and choosing Philly’s official cocktail.
