I WILL NOT GO. TURN THE LIGHTS OFF. CARRY ME HOME. We are utterly, unspeakably devastated to report the sudden death of University City’s premier munchie/drunchie haven, DP Dough.
Less frosh-filled than Wawa, less bouncer-protected than McDonald’s, cheaper/tastier than FroGro and open later than Allegro, the always-friendly calzone connoisseurs of 40th Street will never be forgotten. While it’s true they are a chain and our cravings can technically be satisfied elsewhere, this location was special because people thought it was named after a certain newspaper. (And the closest ones are at Penn State and University of Delaware.)
DP Dough: we promise to keep you alive in our (lack of) memories and will always love you. Mourning readers, email your well wishes to their Facebook, because for the establishment always open til 3:30am, it’s the final closing time. RIP.
It’s a day-dream-come-true. As of Saturday, Insomnia Cookies are expanding their delivery hours on the weekend.
Icing on the cookie cake: to celebrate, everyone can get three FREE chocolate chunk cookies via the online “Deal of the Week” (now until September 8th).
Delivery hours on Saturday and Sunday now begin at 1pm, which is great news if you are
To paraphrase CEO Seth Berkowitz, Insomnia is “eager to satisfy munchies whether at 3pm or 3am.”
Philadelphia might not be Pennsylvania’s capital city (thanks a lot,
Pittsburgh Allentown Scranton Harrisburg), but looks like it’ll at least be reasserting its spot as a national capital after some 250 years. The authorities over at Esquire have deemed Philly the Late-Night Capital of the United States. Wow, just one more until we finally catch up to South Africa!
In this 12-slide feature, the site lists several places (read: bars) around the city serving food past midnight. Shockingly not on the list? Both Jimmy John’s and McDonald’s. While it’s cool that Esquire could name 14 non-Wawa food dives (read: bars), we hardly think that makes Philly the late-night munchie capital of this glorious, Christian nation.
We get that the Brooklyn hipster foodies are getting on everyone’s last nerve, but Esquire, stop trying to make Philly happen.
The clock strikes 11:00 p.m. You’re in Rosenparty, the adderall is wearing off and you’ve resorted to looking at pictures of calzones. You wander into Mark’s–the sight of soggy, plastic-wrapped sandwiches almost kills your appetite–but not quite. Desperation is imminent. So what’s it gonna be, bb? We consulted our fanciest food astrologists, and now we have all the answers. Read on to find out what your late night study snack really says about you.
Anything from La Petite Creperie–You are that guy: the overeager kid at the 7th grade spring dance in the baby blue tux and bow tie, except that bow tie is covered in mozzarella and creamy feta, calling out “eat me!” in Salma Hayek’s voice–sorry, what were we saying? We can’t concentrate because we’re staring at your food. Read the rest of this entry »
2011 was a great year, wasn’t it? Remember all those fun times we had together? You know, besides all those nights at Smoke’s and Blarney and frat parties and downtowns and initiations and BYOs and, and…wait, those all made it kind of hard to remember much, didn’t they? But it was a great year, we promise! So before we head into 2012, we’re taking a look back to remind you of some of the greatest the year had to offer before the world is ravaged by flames and tsunamis and other silly catastrophes. First up: the year’s best guides to life as a Quaker.

You’ll see in today’s DP that a new building is coming to the Biopond area of campus, (oddly?) described as the “Huntsman Hall for life-science students.” It’s basically any and all “Living World” requirements in one place, housing the good Psychology, BBB and biology stuff. It makes us think: what other campus lifestyles do we wish could just be in one place?
- The “Huntsman Hall” of Relaxation: A new de-stress center featuring haircuts from Adolph Biecker (no more schlepping to 34th), Kiwi fro-yo and the Bursar-able massages from Pottruck.
- The “Huntsman Hall” of Munchies: McDonald’s, Wawa and Allegro. Location: inside of Smoke’s. We’ll make it work.
- The “Huntsman Hall” of Downtowns: G lounge, Level and Palmer Social all in one convenient building on Beige Block. Never have to worry about leaving a coat behind again! Unfortunately, the Roxxxy will still be a million miles away.
- The “Huntsman Hall” of Huntsman Hall: Featuring Brooks Brothers, the OCR Suite and Occupy Philly all in one happy room.
