South Philly Barbacoa Still Looking for a Home; PYT's Deep-Fried Ellio's Burger

EAST PASSYUNK CROSSINGHopes for South Philly Barbacoa to set up shop in the mosaic-festooned warehouse at 1002 Watkins St. were nixed in the earliest stages at a zoning committee meeting last night, reports the Passyunk Post.

OLD CITY — Blah blah snow mutter ice storm whatever, let's just cut straight to the day-drinking deals and get it over with already. Sassafras, for one, has already decided to put their V-Day cocktail specials on at a reduced price tomorrow, February 13. (They include a lavender-infused champagne affair and a coconut-white chocolate-whipped cream situation called the Winter Love; $6-$7 apiece on Thursday and $6-$9 on Friday and Saturday.) NB: They've got a fireplace in there, too. [EaterWire]
