Introducing the newest hump day treat: for the month of July, The Trestle Inn is bringing you a new wing dish every Wednesday. From 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. stop by and get a taste of their oven-baked wings paired with a new homemade sauce or House Buffalo. And if that’s not enticing enough, you’ll also get a shot of select whiskey and a can of beer.
Bring $10 for the ticket and maybe a napkin or two because wings combined with alcohol sounds as messy as it does delicious.

Set an alarm, drop your calls, and mark your calendar because today at 1 p.m., tickets go on sale for the next Cage Match Dinner Battle at Alla Spina. And with only 26 spots open, attendees will be competing for spots as much as the chefs will be for the winning title.
The tasty matchup will happen Wednesday, July 16 between Michael Solomonov & Co. from Zahav and Marc Vetri & Co. from Vetri. Fun fact: Solomonov used to work under Vetri. Like every competition though, there can only be one winner. Will it be student or teacher? Insert dramatic sound effect here.
The ticket is $95 per person and a portion of the proceeds will go to Rooster Soup Company, a kickstarter put together by Federal Donuts and Broad Street Ministry.
To reserve your spot, call 215-600-0017.

Normally we don’t have any problem with Belgians. We’re big fans of the beer, the waffles, the mussels and the fries. But with today’s World Cup game, they’re our mortal enemies. So sorry, no Tripel Karmeliet, no sausage and mussels and certainly no frittes with mayo.
Instead, we’ll be going all-American today. And here are some options to keep it USA all-the-way.
