Garage Gives East Passyunkers Another Place to Toast to Their ’Hood

Zagat Blog’s Danya Henninger writes today about the opening of Garage, a new bar on East Passyunk Avenue, which simply can’t stop sprouting new bars and restaurants and clothing stores founded by former members of successful locally based bands. Henninger says:

The roadhouse-casual bar from Jason Evenchik and partners will provide locals a perch to watch tourists queue for mediocre cheesesteaks while sipping craft beer from a can and playing skee ball and pinball.

Nothing could be more symbolic of the way the neighborhood has changed over the years than the original signage that remains on the bar’s facade. Let’s hope Evenchik decides to keep it there as some kind of reminder.

    Need to add back end help after final cuts.

    It remains to be seen what kind of job Nickel corner actually is, in Davis’ D. For some defenses, the nickel corner is on the field for 60% of the snaps–essentially making that player a “starter”. Teams like Seattle can do everything from their base defense, so the nickel is actually more of a reserve position (having a LB like KJ Wright helps a lot).

    I’m starting to freak myself out here, but I…kind of…trust…Kelly. I happened to hear him on Sirius speaking with Ross Tucker, and the guy is just so impressive in the way he presents his POV. I think if guys like Graham and Boykin are outproducing Cole and Williams, the productive guys are going to see the field.

    Is it bad that giants kept terrell pryor but not kenny phillips.

  • Cyrus Robinson

    If Boykins is only a little better than the best outside corner, but much better than the next guy in the slot, he should play in the slot. It makes the defense overall better.
    Having a weakness in the slot is not something to scoff at. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.

      Good logic. But If he starts in base he can still move to the slot in nickel. ie Ronde Barber with the Bucs.

    “other than having the QB run too much especially with read-option run plays”

    His option plays don’t work like that. It’s why he doesn’t NEED a speedy Qb to run the option. Though obviously that helps. This isn’t the skins read option – it’s quite a bit more sophisticated than that.

    I actually expect Vick to run quite a bit LESS in this offense than he has in the past – though when he does I expect it to be for a significant gain (15+ yards or more) or a score.

    Expect the backs to have a BEAST of a year though. Shady and Bryce in particular.

    • Media Mike

      From your lips to God’s ears with Vick running less. In general, the trend in read/option QBs is going to get guys killed league wide. RGKnee, Kaepernick, etc. are all going to have shortened careers due to big hits taken on read-option runs.
