Earlier, we told you all about things to do on (or before) Valentine’s Day with an eye towards those who will actually be celebrating the day. We also gave you a whole bunch of places to score candy that’s better than the heart-shaped chocolate samplers you can score at the CVS when you (inevitably) forget all about Valentine’s Day until the last minute.
But what about a little something for those doing their best to NOT celebrate an invented holiday which primarily benefits greeting card companies and the purveyors of gas station bouquets?
The bar at Bud & Marilyn’s is already amply stocked with a signature beer from Yards: Bud’s Best Pale Ale. And now it looks like beverage manager Terence Lewis (who’s in charge of the booze for all Marcie Turney and Val Safran’s restaurants) is going to get to bulk up the namesake supplies with a new brown liquor: Bud’s Best Bourbon–a months-long collaboration with Pittsburgh-based craft whiskey distiller Wigle Whiskey.
For the holidays, sometimes the greatest gift is one you give yourself—not cooking at home for all those guests. Here are seven Philly restaurants well equipped for handling large parties of revelers suddenly arriving on the doorstep.
