And on the 399th Day, there was a Kitchen…

Hey Foobooz readers. Happy Friday. The sun is shining just brightly enough that I can’t see my laptop screen. I’ll take it.

While Foobooz has left the World Foobooz headquarters for a few, I’ll be updating you on a some happenings. Don’t be too surprised if they’re beer related.

At 5 pm today, Heather and Charlie Collazo get their kitchen.

The couple has Brian Bosch formerly of Parc, stirring up Puerto Rican Fusion Cuisine.

They put their culinary thinking caps on by providing many vegan and vegetarian options. Vegans and Vegetarians seem to travel further for food than competitive wing eaters like myself. This is just what the Institute, which has been referred to “as a true locals bar” needed to entice fellow Philadelphia to their way of 12th and Green.

The Institute mentions on their website that they’ve brought “good beer to an under served area of Philadelphia.” Now, they’re doing the same with the cuisine of Puerto Rico. And our stomachs should be just as happy as our livers.

They’ll be ready for diners at 5.

Also from 5 till 7- all drafts are $1 and wine is $4

They’re also trying to kill kegs of Victory Schwarz Pils and Rogue Latona for $3.

Here’s a few options-=or you can see the whole enchilada here…
