Okay, so this whole snow thing is getting old already. And the cold? Tired of it.

Apparently, so are George and Jennifer Sabatino, because they’re bringing in their buddy Scott Schroeder and the three of them are throwing a backyard, 4th of July-style barbecue at Aldine on February 2nd.

Here’s What’s #OpenInPHL

We coined the #OpenInPHL hashtag back when Hurricane Irene was drenching us in 2011. We thought it would be an interesting social media experiment and useful tool for people looking to splash their way to a local bar.

Today, businesses take to the hashtag without prompting, telling everyone when and where they can go to avoid cabin fever.

And as the big snow storm closes in, here’s what’s #OpenInPHL.

On February 28, you have a chance to attend what may be the first beer festival held inside a former NASA training facility. Fermented Productions is organizing a festival of beer, wine, spirits and food at The Fuge, a catering venue and aeronautics museum in Warminster, Bucks County, that used to train every American astronaut embarking on a lunar mission. The room is entirely round, and attendees can visit the centrifuge simulator. Which is just cool.

Offal Dinner At Kensington Quarters

kensington_quarters_logo_promo

In the wake of it’s two-bell review from Craig Laban, Kensington Quarters is hosting a five-course offal dinner for $75 per person. It’s on January 27, starts at 7 pm, and will feature, of course, all the various squiggly bits of animals that don’t get sold as steaks or chops. Each of the five courses will be served along with wine pairings (handy for getting past the notion of eating lamb liver and marmalade) and guests will eat in the loft area of the restaurant with chef Damon Menapace cooking in the open kitchen.

Oh, and of course we have a menu. Check it out below.

Where to Get Super Bowl Sunday Takeout That Will Score Big

The home of Super Bowl XLIX, Glendale Arizona - Parking lots and dirt.

The home of Super Bowl XLIX, Glendale Arizona – Parking lots, dirt and sprawl.

UPDATED: 1/30/2015

Patriots, Seahawks, football, blah blah blah.

Look, we like football as much as anyone. But this year, owing to various regional animosities and deep-seated issues with certain Pacific Northwestern waterfowl, we’re way more excited about Super Bowl Sunday as a food holiday — an excuse to amass the maximum amount of deep-fried calories possible and then see how many of them we can consume before passing out on the couch.

What’s a Weekend Without Football?

sports-triva-fb-796x1024What’s a weekend without football? Well it’s pretty awful. All anyone does is talk about Tom Brady’s balls. If you want to get beyond that, head to Founding Fathers Sports Bar at 1617 South Street on Sunday afternoon, at 5:30 p.m. for an all-football Quizzo hosted by Johnny Goodtimes.

In addition to the quiz, select craft beer will be available for $4.50 and nachos and quesadillas will be $5.

A Look Inside the Vetri/Morimoto Collaboration Dinner

VetriMorimoto

Remember that collaboration dinner we told you about a couple weeks ago? The two-night-only, side-by-side Vetri/Morimoto pairing event? Yeah, well it sold out fast and is happening tonight, but for all of you out there who aren’t one of the 32 people total who will get to actually eat this meal, here’s a quick look at how one of the plates turned out.

That is seriously one of the most lovely things I’ve seen in a long time. And while I’m not often envious of people tasting dinners (because god knows I’ve been to more than my share), I am more than a little jealous of the folks sitting down to this table.
