It’s USA vs. Slovenia in the World Cup at 10 am. Enjoy the game at Brauhaus Schmitz with the popular German street food, the döner kebab. The sandwich has Turkish roots but has become one of the most popular street foods out there. The Brauhaus version is a mix of lamb and beef and roasted on a spit.  It is then shaved, similar to a Gyro, and served in house made Fladenbrot (flatbread) with lettuce, cabbage, red onions, pickles, tomatoes, radishes, and a garlic sauce.


Heading down the shore? Check out the new Diving Horse (reviewed here) from the Pub & Kitchen team in Avalon or consider Adam Erace’s guide to Good Food Down the Shore.

Staying in town, how about a cheesesteak tour around the Reading Terminal Market? The 75 minute tour is given by the author of The Great Philly Cheesesteak Book and features bites of cheesesteak from several Terminal merchants as well as history of the cheesesteak and the terminal. Visit Taste of Philly Food Tours for details.


It’s Dad’s big day. Here are a handful of interesting ideas:

  • Bistro St. Tropez – The Center City restaurant is offering dads a free 14 ounce fire-grilled Black Angus Ribeye Steak served with sautéed string beans, mushrooms, creamy pommes purée and bordelaise sauce.
  • Cuba Libre – The Old City cuban restaurant is offering dads a 14-ounce rib eye with roasted pepper rajas salsa, roasted corn and Jack cheese souffle. Also all dads receive a complimentary glass of sangria.
  • Tweed – The just opened restaurant on 12th is adding weekend brunch this weekend. Being that it’s the first weekend you can probably get dad in without a problem. Brunch Menu (PDF)
  • Valanni – A 16 oz. grilled, bone-in cowboy steak, baked potato, and asparagus with hollandaise sauce, served with either Johnny Walker Gold ($30) or Johnny Walker Blue ($35).

What else do you have going on this weekend?
