10 Of Philly’s Best Ice Cream Floats

Watermelon and Mint Soda Float 

We didn’t mean to, but in the past couple of weeks we’ve done a lot of ice cream float reporting. There were the beer floats collaboration between Bottle Bar East and Joe’s Steaks. Then, we told you about the nitro-charged coffee and Weckerly’s ice cream floats collaboration at Rival Brothers and the 2015 affogato road show (because, being made of ice cream and a liquid, affogatos are kinda like floats). So, after all that, we finally just decided to put together a guide to some of our favorite floats around town. Because seriously? There’s just no better way to kick off a season of shore-house-less sorrows than to to drown them in than a tall glass of something frothy and creamy.

Charlie Sheen Makes Good On His $1,000 Tip To PYT Server Stiffed By LeSean McCoy

Hey, remember back a couple weeks ago when the internets melted because LeSean McCoy from the Eagles left a 20-cent tip for a server at PYT?

Remember when the melted internets then exploded and caught fire because Charlie Sheen (yeah, THAT Charlie Sheen) got on Twitter and pledged $1,000 to the stiffed server (#nojudgement)?

Yeah, well now it looks like Topper Harley has come through. The Daily News is reporting that 10 hundred dollar bills and a signed photo were mailed to PYT, in care of server Rob Knelly, and the cash is now resting comfortably in Knelly’s wallet.

No word yet on what he’s doing with the signed picture.

Eagles Player LeSean McCoy Just Left a 20-Cent Tip at PYT [UPDATED]

lesean-mccoy-20-cent-tip-pyt

UPDATE: Actor Charlie Sheen has pledged $1,000 to the server dissed by LeSean McCoy.

ORIGINAL:

Somebody please tell Philadelphia Eagles player LeSean McCoy that you are supposed to leave a 20 percent tip at a restaurant. Not 20 cents.

On Monday afternoon, McCoy and three guests visited PYT, the popular burger-and-booze spot in Philadelphia. The group racked up a tab of $61.56, and McCoy charged the bill to his Visa card, leaving a 20-cent tip. That is a .32-percent tip.

PYT owner Tommy Up says that it was absolutely the LeSean McCoy who left the 20-cent tip as opposed to just some random LeSean McCoy leaving a 20-cent tip.

But not everyone on PYT’s Facebook page is being exactly sympathetic to the server or the restaurant.

Philadelphia Owns List of Outrageous Foods

americas-most-outrageous-foods-400The web site CityPASS has created an infographic of the fifteen most outrageous foods in America. And in what must be a point of pride, three of the dishes are from Philadelphia.

PYT, which is the brightest lightbulb for list making moths that there is, makes the infographic for its “Sarancha Burger,” a burger doused in a combo of Sriracha, Ranch and Salsa. Varga Bar’s crab fries, that actually come with crab, also make the list. And thirdly, a food so outrageous it requires two stops, the Philadelphia Taco. The Philadelphia or sometimes, South Street Taco starts with a Jim’s Steaks cheesesteak that is then wrapped with a giant slice of Lorenzo’s Pizza around it.
