South Philly’s Members Only Italian Social Club​

Jan 1, 2023


This members-only restaurant is tucked between residential row homes in south Philadelphia.

Besides a small red neon sign outside, nothing indicates there’s a 100-year-old Italian eatery that serves as a time capsule for south Philly’s Italian immigrants. To get into the dining area, patrons must tap a buzzer and give their membership cards to a hand extending through a hole in the entranceway’s second door.

Watch owner Joey Baldino give MUNCHIES exclusive access to Palizzi Social Club, show how its incredible food like spaghetti with crabs, caesar salad, and delicious grilled octopus is made — and hear why preserving his heritage and neighborhood’s history is more important than ever to him.

With “house rules,” including things like “no blogging, reviewing, or tagging on social media,” Palizzi Social Club is the definition of “word of mouth.”

Better than coffee? This NYC bar opens at 8 a.m. | Bars of NYC | New York Post​


This SoHo watering hole opens at 8 a.m. Monday through Saturday and 10 a.m. on Sundays.

The stigma against drinking in the morning, however, is 24/7. "I get very defensive, very protective of my morning crew," general manager Jen Maslanka said. "Listen, if I were a cop, a fireman, [if] I worked in a hospital, I would want to drink after work. I would want several drinks!" Her morning eye-opener: A bloody Mary or a Guinness.

Spring Lounge's unique hours cater to anyone with a topsy-turvy schedule, such night-shift workers, students, film production crews and more. The bar, which dates back to the 1920s, lovingly dubs its regulars the Early Morning Drinkers Society — complete with punch cards and T-shirts. Find out more in this episode of "Best Kept Secret Bars of NYC: Sticky Floors of the Big Apple" hosted by Mike Cannon.
I have red wine with breakfast a lot of the time. There's nothing better than 3 eggs over easy with hashbrowns, bacon and a sesame bagel washed down with 2 glasses of merlot or Italian sparkling red. Mmmmmm

Jul 25, 2023


PDT, Death & CO., Tailor.
The NYC Cocktail Bar Renaissance: By the mid 'aughts a new age cocktail bar era was exploding in NYC and throughout the country. Fueled by a new generation of inspired distillers and mixologists utilizing the best classic, craft and artisanal spirits, along with:
house made syrups, aromatic sprays, elixirs, tinctures, bitters and custom ice programs all carefully measured, mixed, stirred or shaken and poured into bespoke glassware.
The 90's era of Sex in The City inspired flavored Vodka based concoctions was thankfully, finally, pronounced dead.

Dive Bar Review, Marshall's Bar Detroit, Best Detroit Dive Bars, Flame Thrower Grill​

Mar 29, 2022


Check out this really cool older than dirt Detroit bar located on the Fox Creek right off the iconic Detroit river. Come play some pool or darts or Juke Box or sit at the large wooden bar or outside next to the firepit along the Fox Creek. Drinks are cheap and atmosphere is large.
Some royal shit holes in this one. If you made a WestPac many moons ago you may have visited one or two.
