First Pics: Moonshine opens at Moyamensing and Sigel in Pennsport

It may have taken sightly longer than its targeted September date, but like its namesake Moonshine Bar just needed some time before opening.

The bar and restaurant has been open for two weeks in Pennsport at the old location of the East Side Moyomensing Saloon at Moyamensing and Sigel, and so far it has gotten rave reviews. We stopped by and spoke with co-owner Rich Fattori and snapped some pics of the new spot.

That’s the front of the menu and it is loaded with goodness inside. Fattori said they heard from so many people that Pennsport needs more food options and he answered the call in a big way. Below is the menu in full.

What's Happening in:  Queen Village 

‘Sprayground’ opens at Shot Tower Rec Center

Queen Village residents can now cool off from the summer heat at the push of a button.

Shot Tower Recreation Center was one of five locations this year where the city installed a sprayground (a playground with water sprays – get it? Spray-ground). Already a popular destination for children given the baseball field, playground, and basketball gym, the new sprayground has been a huge hit since it opened July 20 on Carpenter Street near Front.

The Daily News, which covered the city’s sprayground movement recently, said the new improvements to Shot Tower cost an estimated $149,000.  It is located in a small area next to the baseball field that is not immediately visible from Front Street and sits adjacent to a picnic area outside of the gym.

Stuff your face at the Pizza Olympics in Pennsport

pizza South philly review

In what is supposed to be an off year for the Olympics, the South Philly Review is bringing its own version to Pennsport this week. On Thursday, the paper is hosting the fifth annual Pizza Olympics from 6 to 9 p.m. at Penns Landing Caterers at 1301 S. Columbus Blvd.

The event is promoted as “the biggest pizza party South Philly has ever seen,” and with at least 15 parlors competing it might be. Tickets are $15, which includes entry and all the pizza you can eat from each vendor. There will also be discounted beer and drink specials as well as live music, raffles and giveaways. Attendees must be 18 to enter and 21 to drink – standing room only.

The parlors that have committed to attend include SliCe, Santucci’s, Chickie’s and Pete’s, Bianca Pizza and Trattoria, and J&J pizza. Mummers (this is Pennsport after all) have performed here in the past so you can strut off some of those added calories by the end of the night.
