As one of the weekly specials at Grey Lodge, a sandwich fit for a king (or the King, Elvis Presley to be exact) is available for only six bucks.
It’s Elvis’s favorite: the fried peanut butter and banana sandwich, and it could be your favorite too. Grey Lodge is upping the ante on their sandwich which includes fig honey and bacon. But remember, it’s only here for a week.
Looking for weekend drinking options? Perhaps you’ll find inspiration in Draft Magazine’s 2014 Best Beer Bars list. Six area bars make the list, which has been reimagined for 2014. In past years, having a ton of tap lines might matter, but today Draft Magazine defines a great beer bar as more than that. “We needed to walk out of these places saying, “Now there’s a bar that really, really cares about your experience with beer.”
In the Philadelphia area, six bars made the list including two from Brendan Hartranft and Leigh Maida.
Friday the Firkinteenth is the event Northeast Philadelphia’s Grey Lodge is most known for. Every Friday the Thirteenth the bar stocks its bar with firkins (small kegs) of cask ale. Today there will be almost 30 firkins tapped, and for the first time, the day will be broken up into two sessions.
Tapping for the first session begins at noon, the evening session starts at 6 p.m. If you’re lucky enough to buy the beer that kicks a firkin, you’ll get an awesome I Kicked the Firkin tee. Because of the nature of the event, the Grey Lodge doesn’t do tabs today and all purchases are of the cash variety.
