Everything that could ever possibly happen in one town is happening this weekend in Philadelphia. Saturday is Halloween and also the first home game of the World Series. Oh, and there’s the last concert ever at the Spectrum (Pearl Jam, fellow ‘90s kids!), before they blow that sucker up. Conveniently, Septa is considering going on strike just in time for hordes of carless New Yorkers and suburbanites to descend upon us. Thanks to the end of daylight savings time on Sunday morning, you’ll have an extra hour to drink - or drink it all in. If you need help navigating any of it - in or out of costume - here are some ideas.
• Noted baseball fanatic Morimoto has two Phillies specials - a kobe cheesesteak with sweet soy sautéed onions, enoki mushrooms, and grilled scallions on an Amoroso roll served with house made tonkatsu sauce, pommes frites and salad for $35, plus Cracker Jack ice cream for $10.
• $10 for ice cream not rich enough for you? Try Barclay Prime’s baseball special - a $16 kobe hot dog, served on a homemade buttermilk potato roll with smoked sauerkraut, mustard, onion and a pickle. For $20, you also get a can of Sly Fox Pikeland Pils.
• Three Springs Farm is selling crates - roughly 25 pounds - of their apples for $20 at Sunday’s Headhouse Market. Find out what Three Springs owner Ben Wenk has to say about his locally grown apples here. [uwishunu]
• Sunday’s the last day to hit up CapoYunk and SquareBurger for the season. [Grub Street]
