What's Happening in:  All over South Philly 

We’re taking a little Thanksgiving break. See you back on Monday!

Dear readers,

We certainly have a lot to be thankful for this year. For one thing, you all helped us reach half a million unique visitors to Passyunk Post. That’s pretty fantastic, isn’t it?
