Attention to Northern Liberties criminals: Cantina Dos Segundos has cameras, and they’re pretty high resolution.
Last week, footage emerged of a female customer at Dos Segundos swiping a backpack that contained a gun belonging to a Philadelphia Police officer.
Yesterday, police say Dos Segundos’ cameras picked up another crime. A suspect, described as a white male, 20-30 years-of-age with brown hair walked in and made off with a money bag containing an unspecified amount of cash.
Criminals, you need to start noticing those surveillance cameras, they’re watching you.
Anyone with information is asked to call East Detectives Division, 215-686-3243/3244.

There are a lot of ways to battle single degree lows. Burrow under your heaviest comforter and wait for spring. Enjoy a Hot Toddy or whiskey shots. But there’s another way to battle the cold that we’re particularly fond of, DENIAL.
Here are six drinks being poured around town that will take you back (or forward) to summer.

Vance Lehmkuhl has been compiling nominations for Philadelphia’s best vegan cheesesteak for the Philadelphia Daily News. He received over 1,000 nominations for 23 Philadelphia area vegan cheesesteaks. From those nominations, Lehmkuhl wittled his field down to three finalists; Blackbird Pizzeria, Cantina Dos Segundos and Hibiscus Juice Bar.
Cantina Dos Segundos walked away with the people’s choice award for their vegan cheesesteak burrito. The spices seemed to push that one over the top. The “professional judges,” Jonathan Bagot (veganjawn.com), Takia McClendon (Uptown Soul Food), Frank Olivieri Jr. (Pat’s Steaks) and Christina Pirello (local author) went in a different direction. When all was said and done they had crowned Blackbird Pizzeria’s vegan cheesesteak as the city’s best.

Too many people think that Cinco de Mayo is Mexican Independence Day but it is actually today, September 16th. And thankfully several Mexican bars and restaurants in Philadelphia are looking to educate the masses through margarita deals and food specials.
Cantina Dos Segundos is hosting a special tequila dinner on Thursday, July 11th. Graciela Gonzalez, third generation, master distiller of El Mayor Tequilas will be on hand.

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.
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.
