It’s February 22nd, 2012, and you know what that means– yup, it’s Ash Wednesday and National Margarita day! Also, SHOPPING GUIDE DAY! Nestled within today’s DP you’ll find reviews of the neatest and newest shops ‘n stops in Philadelphia, from vintage boutiques to a rad South Street teahouse.
Don’t feel like go all the way to campus to pick one up? Check out the PDF version here. And as usual, get excited for tomorrow’s regular Street. Now, go get some margaritas and do some shopping! It’s too nice outside to stay cooped up in the ‘brary.
Woah, woah, woah! Look at this chic little storefront on the 3700 block of Spruce. Suedes? Leathers? Handbags? A chandelier? Do our eyes deceive us, or is there finally a trendy new boutique to replace Urban where we can all flock to buy identical wardrobes? Nope, our eyes deceive us. Behold the newly remodeled…Bonded Cleaners..!(?) New look, same average service! But really, cheers to them for adding a little charm to that dank building where, rumor has it, some students actually live.
Update: They actually are selling clothes now! Whodathunkit? Learn more in the full DP article.
We know what you’re thinking. What is this so–called “Shopping Guide?” Did this hapen last year? But there are no cool stores in Philly! Wah, wah, wah. Pout, pout, pout.
Tuck that bottom lip back in because here are some answers. 1. Well, the title kind of gives it away. It’s a shopping guide. Like reviews of stores and stuff, ya dig? 2. Yes. This happens every spring. Where have you been? 3. Of course there are cool stores in Philly! There are ones made for girls who like dresses, ones made for boys who dress like lumberjacks and even ones made for people who want to wear dildos and leather jackets all day.
We suggest you pick up the issue today; it’s inside the DP as per usual. Street will be back tomorrow and boy are you in for a surprise.
Organic, healthy, and otherwise green salad/froyo/wrap shop Sweetgreen will be the yuppiest new place in the Radian come May. The “fast casual” spot is really into locally sourced ingredients, being good to the earth, and everything else trendy people love to say they support.
Side point: where does one draw the line between fast, casual, and “fast casual?” Wikipedia tries to define it but we have so many questions. Cosi? Chipotle? What if you go to a fast food restaurant on Casual Friday? So much to ponder.
