This week brings some great dining opportunities for those in Philadelphia, with specials and events that cover the gambit from live music to fantastic beer. Especially enticing is the cheese celebration at Kris in South Philadelphia.
Center City beer mecca Monk’s Cafe is turning over nine draft lines to California’s Russian River in a daylong push to raise $10,000 for the brewery’s Sonoma Valley breast cancer charity. The lineup includes several sought-after beers including Bling Pig, Pliny the Elder, Consecration, Supplication and Framboise for the Cure, and 10% of all sales will go to the cause. Also look for raffles for rare beers (including one that has never before been sent out of California), with 100% of the proceeds donated.
