The tuxedos are rented and the cocktail dresses have been procured for this Friday’s Black Tie Tailgate kickoff to the 2017 Philadelphia Auto Show, which runs through February 5th at the Convention Center. But now organizers are forced to address a new lawsuit filed by Garage, the popular bar with locations in South Philadelphia and Fishtown. Read more »
On Thursday, Garage North (the one at 100 East Girard Avenue) is throwing a party with Troegs and a bunch of artists to celebrate that very special beer-drinkers holiday: First Squeeze.
So what is First Squeeze, you ask? It’s the first tapping of the year’s supply of Troegs Nugget Nectar–their once-a-year dry hopped Imperial Amber over which beer nerds go all swoony. This time around, they asked eight artists to make Nugget Nectar-inspired works to celebrate the big day. And at the event, they’re going to be offering free prints (while supplies last) and signings by the artists.
Here in Philly, that means Hawk Krall (friend of Foobooz, beer and hot dog enthusiast, and all-around swell guy) hanging out at Garage, showing off his work (you can see him holding it right there) and signing prints for people.
Since Philly is the cheesesteak capital of the universe, we already know the lines at Pat’s and Geno’s are going to be insane this week with the DNC. But if you’re a true Philly native, you know that there’s more to the cheesesteak scene and that the crowds are just annoying.
So, to avoid the crowds (and get a better sandwich), all you have to do is head right across the street. Food Underground is back at Garage tonight with their two “pop-up” sandwiches the Frizwit and the Sabih.
The Frizwit debuted last September and is simply the best cheesesteak around. Made with grass fed, frizzled beef from Kensington Quarters, served with cheese from Hidden Hills Dairy and Birchrun Hills Farm and then topped with charred and caramelized onions and served on a Ba Le Bakery roll, it really doesn’t get much better.
