This Saturday, July 19th, the 3rd Annual Dog Days of Summer Cook-Off is back and bigger than ever. Last year’s event featured 11 restaurants and food trucks, and this year’s will feature 20. The judges’ decision will be much more difficult and as a visitor, your stomach will be much more full.
Starting at 1 p.m., guests are welcome to sample the hot dogs, enjoy craft beer from Victory Brewing Company, jam out to live music and even vote for their favorite dog of the day. General admission is free, but food/drinks tickets cost $10 for 4 and $30 for 15. Or, if you’re looking for that VIP treatment, spend $30 and get early access at noon, a VIP gift, and 20 food/drink tickets. Proceeds will go to the preservation of the Headhouse Square Shambles.

It looks like Noir on East Passyunk is getting an upgrade. First off, chef Marco DeCotiss and former manager Donnamarie Motto are now thew sole owners of the place. Since taking over, they’ve made plans to renovate the bar and dining room, to update the menu and, most notable for the neighborhood, to add Monday service and lunch every day.
Lunch will be served daily, from 11:30am-3pm. Dinner starts at 5pm and happy hour runs from 5-7pm with half-off apps and $4 cocktails. The place is all booked up for tonight, but it might be worth checking out if you haven’t been by in a while.
Noir in South Philadelphia is celebrating the unofficial start of summer by debuting their new lemon, chocolate, and cherry Italian ice cocktails. The frozen drinks are made with ingredients from two of Noir’s East Passyunk neighbors. Mancuso’s water ice is combined with Pollyodd’s lemoncello, chocolatecello and a house infused cherry noir vodka. All are garnished with the traditional water ice accompaniment, a pretzel rod. Each cocktail is $6.
