Philly Singles

To continue my post from yesterday, I wanted to provide my Philadelphia single readers with some info on how to make this couples holiday less depressing:



Start your weekend early – Tonight, Thursday 2/12 – Join hundreds of singles at Mad River Bar and Grille (126 Chestnut St.) for Philadelphia’s Largest Singles Anti-Valentine’s Bash (Just $15 if you click here and buy now). Valentine’s Day is not just for couples anymore! Enjoy a night of networking, flirting and dancing. Fun icebreaker games will get you in the mood to meet new people. There will be delicious hors d’oeuvres, prize give-a-way’s, contests and discount drink prices to get you in the spirit of this fantastic party. This is positively a party you won’t want to miss and maybe cupid might point his arrow your way!

On Saturday head out to the Anti-Valentine’s Day Scavenger hunt (Just $20 if you click here and buy now) at Rum Bar Lounge & Restaurant ( 2005 Walnut Street). Join other singles for a fun and competitive Anti-Valentine’s Scavenger Hunt. You and your team will be finding those fun and sometimes racy items that will ensure a great night! Teams will have 3.5 hours to collect as many of the items on the list as possible and bring them back to the starting point. You must stay in your full group at all times and arrive at your final destination as a group. It is recommended that at least one person in each group have a digital camera. You are only allowed to use your feet and SEPTA to get around. This amazing day will end back at the Rum Bar for tales of true adventure, continuing the fun over drinks. Rain Or Shine – Dress for the day.

Finally if you want to keep it simply, head on out to one of Philly’s oldest ale houses, Mcgillin’s Old Ale House (1310 Drury St.) for $5 Pitchers: Pabst Blue Ribbon (all day) $5 meal: 6-oz Sirloin Steak, and if you want to feel healthy, 99¢ buys a side salad.

To close it out, for my West Coast reader’s, we’ll look into options in LA & San Francisco tomorrow just in time for V-day weekend.

Newtown Brewfest


For those of you living in or around the Philly area, there’s a brewfest this weekend, October 18th.  Unfortunately tickets are sold out.  You may be asking, “Then why tell me about it jerk?”  Well the reason is because this brewfest is that cool. With 80 brewers showing up, you’re sure to leave stumbling.  They even have a Connoisseur Tasting in the beginning of the event limited to 300 people where you can converse with the brewers.  So although I feel bad about notifying you guys so late, there’s always next year and you can still try to pick up tickets on craiglist!  Mark this one on your calendar for next year, I promise you I’ll be there.


Check out the event information at http://www.newtownbrewfest.com.

Awesome Philadelphia Beer map!

Heading to Philly for business or pleasure?  Unsure where to wet your whistle?  Well the Philadelphia Daily news was kind enough to provide a Philadelphia Beer Map:  

Joe Sixpack’s 2008 Philly Beer Map 

It provides a map of almost every bar in, and around, center city.  It also has links to each establishment’s websites (when available).   Perhaps they should consider a beer map for every city!
