For the month of March, nine Northern Liberties bars are getting together and making sure they don’t pour the same beer twice. They’re calling it Northern Exposure and plan to offer an unrivaled draft list of over 100 unique beers through the month.
There is no cover charge or tickets, just pay as you go for beers. They’re encouraging small, self-guided bar crawls and there will be Beer Passports to help record the beers tried. Complete one brewer’s offerings in the month and get some free swag.
Check out the Northern Exposure Facebook page for more information and follow @ExposureFest on Twitter.

It isn’t often that a grade school’s fall festival is worthy of a post on Foobooz but tomorrow’s Harvest Festival at St. Peter’s School at 3rd and Lombard is no ordinary school event.
Of course there will be games, face-painting, pony rides, and baked goods from the students mothers but there will also be some serious eats. Names like Percy Street BBQ, Cantina Dos Segundos, Federal Donuts, Khyber Pass Pub, Little Baby’s Ice Cream, JAVA coffee, and even Whole Foods will take this small, unassuming street fair to the next level.
Food will be served 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Cantina Dos Segundos offers $1 vegan chorizo tacos and Dos Equis pork tacos. There are also $2 PBR drafts if you’re into that kind of thing.
Dos Segundos has something they cal 25-days of tequila. For 25 days in December they will feature a different tequila special. Sounds perfect to us.
For this holiday season Foobooz is getting in on the shopping fun. Much as we bring you the best news on the web regarding food and drink in Philadelphia, we’re doing the same with t-shirts.
