Calm and Cool Ideas for Labor Day Weekend

If you crave being outdoors this Labor Day weekend and Jay-Z’s “Made in America” concert, or thousands of screaming fans on a parkway, aren’t your thing, we’re here to save the day.  Here are some other ideas for you.


Try the Glory of Stephen Starr

Known as one of Philadelphia’s culinary heavy hitters, this mega mind of chefs always provides delightful and delectable menus with charming and innovative ambiance.  Whether it’s El Rey with its edgy, Mexican flair, Continental with its fun, vintage atmosphere, or Jones with its mix of soul and 70’s, you’ll always leave just as amazed as when you entered.

Starr restaurants are located all over Center City.


Dine on the water, almost

Take a walk over to Morgan’s Pier and you’ll be pleasantly surprised as to how beautifully this one locale pairs their beyond delicious menu with the dozens of craft beers and specialty cocktails.  If their wings don’t make you a believer, their fritters and watermelon beer definitely will.  And did we mention the gorgeous waterfront view?  That pretty much sums it up.

Located at 221 North Columbus Boulevard.


Keeping it old school

If you’re looking to save a little this weekend, or simply want to prove that you don’t need white linens to have a good time, then grab some Wawa hoagies, slushies, and roll out the red checkered carpet for a traditional picnic.  Rittenhouse Square Park, Washington West Square Park, and Fairmount Parks are just some of our favorites.

Rittenhouse Square Park is located at 18th and Walnut.  Washington West Square Park is located at 6th and Walnut .  Fairmount Park is located at 1515 Arch Street.
