The most interesting answer might be that like in 2000, when the Republican National Convention was in town, hours for bars may again be extended beyond 2 a.m.
And to the relief of everyone, the DNC does not anticipate the massive street closures that occurred during the Pope’s visit.
The build-out on Mitch Prensky’s Scratch Biscuits storefront at 1306 Chestnut Street is on schedule, maybe even ahead of schedule. This, Prensky told me as he frantically looked for some wood to knock on, means the Midtown Village biscuit spot will be ready for inspections in about three weeks.
Yesterday, I sat down with Prensky to try a sampling of his breakfast and lunch biscuit sandwiches. Also on the agenda, identifying which sandwich was served on a gluten-free biscuit. I failed.
The cast of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia were on Conan last night, when the discussion veered toward fans who had gotten tattoos of cast members painted on their bodies. From there, as they say, silliness ensued, with Charlie Day, Glenn Howerton and Rob McElhenney showing off some of their own (fake) celebrity tattoos—the worst being McElhenney, who had ink of Bill Cosby. As a joke, he scribbled an “R” between the “C” and “O” and drew a thick moustache on the face to disguise it as David Crosby. No one buys it, of course. Watch the clip above.

In other Fallon Philly connections: Kevin Hart showed up to promote his latest film The Wedding Ringer, and got caught up in a lip sync battle with Fallon and Will Ferrell. Check that clip out below:

Calling all broke college students and anyone else who loves free things and tacos. In order to celebrate Union Taco’s grand opening in Manayunk, the taqueria will be giving away free tacos tomorrow between noon and 2 p.m. Each guest, whether dining in or taking out, will get one taco on the house, but you can enjoy the entire menu, too.
This is Chef Nick Farina’s second Union Taco, and while the menu is almost identical to Northern Liberties’, though you won’t find any flatbreads at the Manayunk location. Yet that didn’t hinder Farina’s enthusiasm for his new opening. “I’m really excited to meet our new clientele and introduce our cuisine to Manayunk taco lovers.” And for you late-night taco lovers, Union Taco will be open until 3 a.m. on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.
The new location will be at 4229 Main Street.
