Celebrate Crabbie’s Week By Drinking Alcoholic Lemonade

crabbiesCrabbie’s, makers of the alcoholic ginger beer, are in Philly all this week to celebrate the release of its first ever non-ginger line: Crabbie’s Fruits Cloudy Alcoholic Lemonade. The drink, at 4.8% ABV, promises to be everything an alcoholic lemonade should be: zesty, refreshing and, you know, lemony. So for those of you who faint at the thought of hard liquor, find beer too complex and black out at the mere thought of a Zima, now there’s an option just for you.

But hey, Crabbie’s is also bringing us a week’s worth of events, so maybe we shouldn’t complain too much. Highlights include quizzo, free samples, giveaways, painting and a pool party.

Details, of course, after the jump.

David Ansill’s Doubling Up

David Ansill has quite the story (much of which we’ve chronicled): back in Philadelphia after his repose in Jamaica, he’s brought great food and drink to Bar Ferdinand, and now he’s taking on the kitchen at the Good King Tavern, alongside chef de cuisine Mike Blau.

But here’s the tricky part. He’s not leaving Bar Ferdinand to go to Good King. He’s actually going to be overseeing things at both places.

Running this double-duty seems kind of crazy, if you ask us. But then again, from the looks of things he seems to be handling it rather well: with a new menu and events in the works this month, the Good King is already getting a makeover under Ansill’s command.

Will the balancing act last? Who knows. But for now, details and a menu after the jump.

Opening Soon: Front Street Cafe

Front Street Cafe Exterior

When it finally opens, Front Street Cafe promises to bring fresh, sustainable fare to the Fishtown neighborhood. The restaurant’s main goal is to nourish the community, which means a couple of things.

First, they’ll be open early serving juices, coffee, smoothies and grab-n-go meals for morning commuters (they’re located just a block away from Girard Station at the corner of Thompson and Front). Second, their brunch and dinner options will be organic, sustainable and focused on putting fresh, healthier spins on comfort food classics.

Nothing has been finalized yet (including the opening date and the full menu), but the people at Front Street have given us plenty to get excited about.

Two More Weeks Of Unlimited Hard Shell Crab At EAT

EAT Hard Shell Crab

Get it while you still can: there are two more nights of unlimited, all-you-can-eat hard shell crabs at EAT. For $19.95 guests get unlimited hard shell crab, freshly baked jalapeño bread, corn on the cob and roasted potatoes. While “all you can eat” usually ends in disaster for me (because I’m just trying to get my moneys worth! *takes sixth bread roll*), at just under $20 it becomes nearly impossible to say no.

This Wednesday July 22 and next Wednesday July 29 are the last two nights of all you can eat crab. For August, the restaurant will switch over to all you can eat barbecue, which is just fine with us, too.
