Freshii has been open since January 3rd but tomorrow marks the fast-serve healthy spot’s grand opening. They’re giving away free stuff throughout the day.
Thursday Brooklyn Brewing’s Garrett Oliver is coming to Chifa for a beer dinner. It’s completely sold out so we guess we’ll be on Passyunk Avenue celebrating the Cantina’s 4th birthday.
