Introducing the newest hump day treat: for the month of July, The Trestle Inn is bringing you a new wing dish every Wednesday. From 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. stop by and get a taste of their oven-baked wings paired with a new homemade sauce or House Buffalo. And if that’s not enticing enough, you’ll also get a shot of select whiskey and a can of beer.
Bring $10 for the ticket and maybe a napkin or two because wings combined with alcohol sounds as messy as it does delicious.
All week the Trestle Inn is presenting Kitten Week, a series of events and cocktails to support PAWS (Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society). One dollar of all Kitten with a Whip (Old Forester Bourbon, Licor 43, Prosecco and Angostura bitters) cocktails will be donated to PAWS. Tonight, Old Forester Bourbon is featured during the Trestle’s complimentary tasting and of course the cocktail will be available for order as well.
Every other week distilleries drop in at the Trestle Inn for complimentary tastings, drink specials and some distillery swag.
Tonight it is Cutty Sark with Cutty Sark Prohibition whisky.
On Thursday, January 29th, Western Grace Brandy will be in the house.
The fun kicks off at 6 p.m.

Michael Klein posted his 2014 Philadelphia Restaurant Forecast with all sorts of juicy bits of news and rumor.
Stephen Starr and Aimee Olexy are going to be collaborating on another new restaurant. Not many details are revealed but we know Starr has been hiring for a new Italian concept in Philadelphia. Whether this is it or not isn’t so clear. But we have heard whispers of not one but two wood-fired ovens.
UPDATE: Michael Klein is now reporting that Starr and Olexy are going into business together in Fishtown. The next collaboration will be at 1526-30 Frankford Avenue, next to Philadelphia Record Exchange. The project will contain a vegetable garden and will open this spring.
Starting Friday, May 24th, the Trestle Inn is taking it to the street with their Friday Nite Backyard Barbecue, Callowhill Street to be exact. Enjoy a free happy hour Whiskey Sour from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Old Forester pitcher and craft cans are also on special. The sidewalks will come alive with sidewalk go-go by The Trestle Specials and food from some of Philly’s favorite food trucks.
Having snack options at the movies other than popcorn are great, but popcorn is still our snack of choice. We just wish these restaurants and bars sold their varieties of popcorn in theaters.
Here are our votes for best popcorn in Philadelphia.
