Tonight: Visit the Library

Dive bar expert Brian McManus, author of Philadelphia’s Best Dive Bars – Drinking and Diving in the City of Brotherly Love will be appearing at the main branch of the Free Library with Sarah Stolfa, the McGlinchey‘s bartender who photographed The Regulars a book of portraits of regulars at her bar.

The talk starts at 7:30 p.m. and afterwards you’ll need a drink, we trust Brian can guide you to a local watering hole.
