Been waiting for this thread. Don't know what's up, but interested in knowing options.
Suggestions?

My favorite bars are PRPH and Interstate but I will drink anywhere where there is cold beer and I can lift my drink to my mouth without bumping somebody

I'm definitely going to Murphs Sunday...I cancelled my family BBQ to fit it in the schedule. Hope my relatives can find somewhere else to go. Gotta have your priorities in order.

Interstate would be good, but the weather is looking a bit iffy for outside seating this afternoon. Obviously I'd recommend PRPH but a lot of people seem to be terrified of going north of Lehigh.

i haven't been to the pour house in a bit. i'd be interested. it can be pretty tight in there, though.

You've gotta plan the Cherry St. day a bit more in advance. Today would be a good day, but I have a Sword of Damocles situation at work right now and can't wander too far.

If you're scared to go North of Lehigh, you might as well just lock your door, sit in your house and die.
We have no use for you.

Right, because it's not possible at all to eat before or after. And they do have hot dogs and slim jims.

I say YES to this, a wealth of particulars.

That's fine, but that means we stop everywhere on Frankford. I don't want to hear any complaining when we go to Bob's HH.

If you freaks manage to make it to JB's I'll be upstairs working after 8. Would love to finally put faces to some of these names. Come up and say hi or find me elsewhere in there doing absolutely nothing of importance.

I shower regulary and use Listerine Arctic Mint, too, in case there are any concerns.

We could probably pace ourselves to be there around 8. Is it ticketed upstairs tonight?

Yeah, there's a cover and it's a friend playing BUT no charge to come up and say hi. If you guys are downstairs I could probably take a break and at least drop by. Newcomer knows me (to her eternal regret).

I'm actually there a little after 7...but not really planted up there until 8.

If it doesn't work out timewise I'm planning on 'Meet the Neighbors' anyway (even though I'm not a neighbor anymore). I'm weird like that.
