The 5 best places to eat & drink during FringeArts

Philadelphia There are a ton of sweet things to do in Philly during this time of the year, but figuring out what the heck to do during FringeArts isn't one of 'em... unless someone put together a list of the best Fringe-inspired food/drink spots... oh, look...

Friday, September 12th: Head to Tattooed Mom (preferably with enough time to grab a beer and some Philly fries), then go upstairs and watch Ben to the Future, where our man Ben Franklin finds himself in modern-day Philly. Hopefully he has a hoverboard. Continue Reading

Sunday, September 14th: From noon to 4pm, witness another kind of performance: the art of smoked meat and BBQ. Attend the annual Smoke ‘Em If You Got ‘Em festival, where amateur chefs will fight to dominate your tastebuds with smoked specialties and 30 craft beer options. Tickets are $50 ($20 if you’re the DD).

Monday, September 15th: After a weekend of embracing the arts (or at least embracing food near the arts), head to McGillin's Olde Ale House to watch the Eagles and invest in a $5 Super Mug, which can be refilled for $1 all season long.

Ongoing: London Grill and Paris Wine Bar are both embracing FringeArts with a special Fringey menu that continues until the end of the festival, plus they'll have a cash bar if you find yourself attending any of the performances at the restaurant.

Ongoing: To coincide with the festival, FringeArts has finally opened La Peg at its waterfront venue. The expansive indoor/outdoor restaurant has two bars, a beer garden that'll be opening soon, and during the festival, free late-night programming (particularly of the adult variety).
