Sneak Peek: Inside Philly Mag’s August Issue

Our August issue drops this week. Are you ready for our annual Best of Philly extravaganza?

The August issue of Philadelphia magazine is on its way to mailboxes right now, and—this month especially—it’s bursting with content that gets at the heart of life in the region right now. Here are a few of the big stories that print subscribers will get to read before anyone else:

Best of Philly! It’s August, which means it’s time for the annual, hotly anticipated Best of Philly issue, jam-packed with our exhaustively researched, proudly opinionated picks for the absolute best this town has to offer. Our writers and editors scattered to the farthest corners of the Philadelphia region to get the skinny, the scoop, the lowdown and the straight dope on the very best in food, drink, shopping, services, culture, fun, fitness, people, politics and trends. We do the legwork so you don’t have to.

The Poet Laureate of the Opioid Epidemic: Nobody has told the tale of Philly’s opioid crisis like Inquirer city columnist Mike Newall. Bob Huber tells Newall’s tale, and gets at the heart of why he’s so intent on making sure we don’t simply look away from the tragedy unfolding around us.

The Queen of Margate: Cookie Till, the beloved social dynamo behind the see-and-be-seen restaurant at the Jersey Shore, Steve & Cookies, throws what amounts to an intimate party for “600 of my closest friends” every single night of the summer. Emily Goulet finds out what makes Cookie tick—and how you, too, can get your name in the elusive Reservation Book.

And that’s just the tip of of the iceberg. Subscribe now and we’ll start you off with the August issue.
