Our “Best of Philly” Gay Night Out returned last evening to Morgan’s Pier, where hundreds showed up to celebrate, socialize, and network, all for a good cause: Proceeds benefitted Delaware Valley Legacy Fund and their mission to provide support and grants for the LGBT community. We were on hand to capture the great crowd at the Pier. Looks like fun? Why not join them at their next event in September at the Uptown Beer Garden? More details can be found here.
You can head to Morgan’s Pier for a drink and any of the delicious options on chef Nick Elmi‘s menu any time you want. But now you can also grab a group of 20 and get seated above all the ruckus in their newly opened chef’s table, the Crow’s Nest, lofted over the bar.
We checked it out this past Monday. Curious to know what it was like? Read on…

So you guys remember that Morgan’s Pier is opening tomorrow, right?

This is all very important information. But what’s most important today–just a scant few hours before Morgan’s Pier lights up for the season–is that we just got a copy of Elmi’s full menu. And that now we’re showing it to you.
