In case you forget any snowstorm essentials or find that you’ve run out of beer (gasp!), on-demand delivery service goPuff can help you out. goPuff says that they will remain open and will be “delivering snowstorm essentials throughout the winter watch weekend in 30 minutes or less.”
The “snowstorm essentials” they will deliver includes, but are not limited to water, eggs, milk, bread, canned goods, ice cream and beer.
Other local food delivery services like Caviar and Main Line Delivery are determining their availability based on the safety of their delivery drivers, but goPuff’s strategy promises to stay open for the duration of the storm by doubling up their staff with over fifty independently contracted drivers on shift for the weekend.

A tipster let us in on this juicy tidbit. There’s a Santucci’s (expansion of the South Philly brand) coming to North Broad Street. Signs in the window show that the pizzeria is going in at 655 N Broad Street, the former home of Alessandro’s Pizza.
In addition to another eatery on North Broad, the location also means the neighborhoods of Fairmount, Spring Garden, Callowhill and Poplar will have access to Santucci’s excellent square pizzas via delivery.

Right from the start, we’ve been pretty into Bing Bing. Slap down a fusion-y dim sum joint on Passyunk and fill it with soup dumplings, reuben bao and pitchers of rum-heavy cocktails, and really, what’s not to like? No, not everything there has gone perfectly smoothly (Trey Popp had a bone or two to pick in his recent review), but sometimes that’s the risk you accept when dealing with a place where the kitchen’s menu design ethos is something akin to try everything once, try the good stuff twice.
But now, we have two things happening that actually make us like the place even more. First, they’ve just added delivery through Caviar and, starting tomorrow, they’re gonna have a happy hour.
