Check Out This Philly Bars Poster

hidden-city-bar_sign_print_file_squareBack in 2012, the fine folk of Hidden City Philadelphia did a post highlighting some of the more interesting classic bar signs from around Philadelphia. A commenter said they would immediately purchase a poster if one was ever offered. And now, that poster is available.

And we at Foobooz are excited to note, that we are offering the poster in the Foobooz Store as well.

The poster is 18″ x 24″ and is available for $15.

Also check out the rest of the Hidden City Mercantile for the “coolest Philly stuff.”

Friendly Lounge?

Has Esquire lost it? A year after they named Grey Lodge and Southwark as two of the best bars in America the magazine has a new list for 2007. And the lone Philadelphia contribution to the list is the Friendly Lodge at 8th and Washington.

Neighborhood bar, 1950s. Dirty and magical. From the outside, it looks vacant. But that’s the beauty. No burgers here. No mussels. No Abercrombie. No Fitch. Here’s what they have: ashtrays in front of every stool. Three-dollar Budweisers. Good jukebox. A clogged sink in the bathroom. And a cute salt-of the-earth bartender. Heaven.

Not to get too snobby, but come on, Buds and a clogged sink? We’ll be investigating this weekend.
