Where to Toast the Philadelphia Marathon With Brunch and Beer After the Race

Consider this your post-race refueling guide. 



Picture this: You’ve crossed the finish line at the Philadelphia Marathon, proudly hung your medal around your neck and wrapped yourself in one of those reflective space-blanket thingys. So, now what? It’s time to celebrate, duh.

What better way to toast your big finish than with a beer and a big ol’ pile of pancakes. That’s what you’ll find at these bars and restaurants within hobbling distance of the finish line.
