Fish tacos at Honest Tom’s
You may have braved the traffic to the Jersey Shore, Center City Sipped on Wednesdays after work, or sweated through too many 90 degree days, but if you haven’t had a fish taco, it isn’t summer yet. SoCal has already staked the claim for best fish tacos in all the land, but Philly holds its own when it comes to this stalwart of handheld, beach-y summer noshing. Here are six spots that you need to get to this weekend.

Last year’s shark dinner entree: grilled shark with tequila creamed grits and a corn and bacon salsa.
There are a lot of ways to revel in Shark Week, but few are quite so bold as planning to eat the creatures (save, perhaps, swimming with them unprotected or something like that).
For those of you looking for a way to celebrate big, but not TOO big, La Calaca Feliz‘s 3rd Annual Shark Dinner may be the move for you.

Manayunk bar is closed for renovations.
Sunday night saw Manayunk’s Beast & Ale close. We’re told it is for renovations and that all employees have been absorbed into the three Feliz restaurants (Cantina Feliz, Taqueria Feliz and La Calaca Feliz) owned by Tim Spinner and Brian Sirhal. We enjoyed the concept but that side of Main Street seems to struggle to get foot traffic. The location has previously been Bisou, Gemelli and MangoMoon.
On South Street, Alex Boonphaya is pulling the plug on Tuk Tuk Real. The Mexican/Thai mashup lasted about nine months (just about the same amount of time as Beast & Ale). Boonphaya will convert Tuk Tuk into the third location of his Circles family of restaurants, joining the original at 1516 Tasker Street and the more upscale location at 812 N 2nd Street in Northern Liberties.
If all goes well, the Circles location will open before July ends.
