TENTATIVE SCHEDULE OF EVENTS:
DINNER & DRINKS IN OLD CITY
We'll eat & have some drinks at Khyber Pass Pub http://www.khyberpasspub.com/
From there we can roam to any of the surrounding bars: Revolution House (http://www.revolutionhouse.com/
), Triumph (http://www.triumphbrewing.com/philadelphia/
), Philadelphia Bar & Restaurant (http://www.philadelphiabarandrestaurant.com/

), Bierstube (http://mybierstube.com/
), Buffalo Billiards (http://www.buffalobilliards.com/philadelphia/
), Q BBQ & Tequila (http://www.qoldcity.com/
Also within walking distance (~10 minutes): Dark Horse Pub (http://www.darkhorsepub.com/
), Tattooed Mom's (no website), and Twisted Tail (http://www.thetwistedtail.com/
). There are others but I haven't been to them so I can't say if they'll fit a large group.
We have three choices:
)PLEASE LET ME KNOW BY AUGUST 10TH IF YOU'RE PLANNING TO COME TO SATURDAY BRUNCH SO I CAN MAKE RESERVATIONS.
Meet at 5th and Market to board the 38 bus which will take us to the zoo. Zoo tickets are $18/head. Bus fare is $2.00 in cash or one token ($1.55/token) each way.
LUNCH WILL BE EATEN AT THE ZOO. BRING MONAY. After the zoo we'll hop back on the 38 bus and head to Center City.
DINNER & DRINKS IN CENTER CITYDinner options: please let me know your preferences! Obviously y'all can eat anywhere you want but if we all end up in the same place for dinner (or if we end up breaking into two or three groups) I'd like to give the restaurants a heads up so they can accommodate.
The Corner (http://thephillycorner.com/
Good Dog (http://gooddogbar.com/
Jose Pistola's (http://www.josepistolas.com/
Nodding Head (http://www.ripsneakers.com/nodding/
Perch Pub (http://www.perchpub.com/
After we eat we can bar hop to any of the above bars (and keep in mind there are countless bars in Center City so we'll have plenty of options even if nothing on the above list sounds appealing)
BRUNCHIf anyone has any brunch places or neighborhoods in mind for Sunday, please let me know!
Also, obviously we can squeeze more in on Saturday than brunch, zoo, dinner, and drinks -- let me know if you want something added to the itinerary!
(I'll be updating this post as I think of more things to add)
