Every Saturday, Valanni Restaurant is throwing a “Banged Up Brunch” featuring happy hour drink specials and a selection of brunch favorites, tapas style for $5. No need to decide sweet or savory, just select tapas plates like cinnamon French toast and applewood smoked bacon grilled cheese for the best of both worlds.
The brunch runs from noon to 3 p.m. every Saturday and includes drink specials like half-off sangria, wine and specialty cocktails. Bloody Marys and mimosas are also available for $5.
Sometimes we just crave paella. The mix of spices, fresh seafood and rice is a dish that works no matter the weather. So here are six paella dishes in and around Philadelphia that deliver.
BEST BAR: U Bar
A mix of every type of guy, young to old, buff to not-so-buff. A no-’tude vibe. Efficient, friendly bartenders. A horseshoe layout that allows for eye contact everywhere. Is it any surprise this place has become the go-to default on Philly’s gay-bar hit parade? 1220 Locust St., 215-546-6660, ubarphilly.com.
