Okay, so there is a lot to do this weekend. With spring here, the sun coming out and people finally shaking off the last of their winter blues, it seems like everybody has some sort of event, collaboration or special menu just waiting for you — everything from oysters, beer and pies to curry rice and a total tiki takeover.
So let’s just get right to it, shall we?
Stargazy, the East Passyunk British pie shop that made our Philly’s Best Pies list back in January, has played host to guest chefs like Will BYOB’s Chris Kearse and Aldine’s George Sabatino before. This week, chef-owner Sam Jacobson plays host to yet more of his chef friends: Vetri’s kitchen crew and Opa’s Bobby Saritsoglou.
Besides the fact that it’s a beer garden located smack in the middle of the one of the happeningest nightlife neighborhoods in Philly, there’s another reason why Drury Beer Garden works: the food.
Opa’s Bobby Saritsoglou is a champ in the realm of Greek cuisine; he’s, quietly, the chef behind some of the most exciting Mediterranean dishes in the city. And because Drury Beer Garden shares Opa’s kitchen, we get to enjoy his food while playing ping pong and hanging out outside under twinkly string lights.
