This weekend will be a good time to root on the Phillies from the outdoors. Enjoy the perfect weather and watch the game outdoors at O’Neals where they’ve added an HDTV to their revamped courtyard.


Arrrrgh! Friday is Talk Like a Pirate Day, what better day to check out Real Pirates over at The Franklin. Then head over to Walnut Street to say such things as “Yo Ho Ho And A Bottle Of Rum” at the Rum Bar. The Grey Lodge, which has yet to meet a ridiculous day it couldn’t celebrate is pulling out some strong Belgian beers including Victory’s Golden Monkey. Arrrgh indeed!


SEPTA has added late night service on several of its regional rail lines and this weekend those rides are free. Dare we say it might be time to check out Manayunk again? Cooper’s Wine Bar and the Cactus Bar have recently opened.

Or if you are a suburbanite, hang out a little later. Consider dinner at Zahav and a later movie at the Ritz.


We wish the train still went to West Chester but alas it doesn’t. But it’s still worth the trek to West Chester as the borough is throwing their annual Restaurant Festival.
