On Sunday, August 25th Lucky Old Souls Burger Truck owner Matthew Feldman wound up in a pickle. His truck had broken down and he couldn’t make it to his normal spot at the Headhouse Square Farmers’ Market. He did find his way to Queen Village’s Kennett though, where he was lamenting his situation over a Bloody Mary. And from there, an idea was born. Feldman, and Kennett chef Brian Ricci hatched the plan to have a Patty Melt Pop-Up tonight at Kennett. So head to Kennett this evening for Lucky Old Souls Patty Melts paired with Kennett fries. The bar will also be offering a $4 beer pairing with each purchase. All the proceeds will go to a new engine fund for the LOS Burger truck. The pop-up runs from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. so get there and order a patty melt or two.
Stop by the Kennett to congratulate Ashley Bohan and Johnny Della Polla on the Queen Village bar’s second birthday. Tonight, Flying Fish’s Casey Hughes will be bringing by Grand Cru, Red Fish, Exit 4, Exit 16, and the rare Exit 8. The fun starts at 7 p.m. and all the beers will be just $4.
Tomorrow night, Hendricks Gin will be sponsoring a night of cocktails. Phoebe Esmon and Christian Gaal will be behind the bar serving up new and classic gin cocktails.

According to the September issue of Esquire, Philadelphia is the Late-Night Capital of these here United States. The issue’s late-night eats guide contains essays about the difference between truck stops and diners, the glory that is poutine (I’d say we agree), and tons of recipes for manly food to be eaten in the wee hours of the morning. Esquire even lists all the best late-night foods from all over America– from egg rolls in Chicago to fried chicken in Louisville– but without mentioning a single food from Philly. Why? Because we got our own article about why we’re the best ever, that’s why.
