Craig LaBan will be out in public this evening reading from and signing is book at the Penn Bookstore. LaBan has always been very guarded about his identity, it will be interesting to see how he shields himself from the public.
As for the book itself, it is a must-have for the foodie on your shopping list. Most people have focused on his 76 favorite restaurants in Philadelphia, but the book’s utility goes well beyond that with 300 capsule reviews and pages upon pages of useful lists, broken down by neigborhood, cuisine, drink features, hours and more.
Book signing starts at 7 PM.
