What's Happening in:  Newbold :  West Passyunk 

4th Annual South Philly SausageFest

It’s back! The 4th annual South Philly Sausage Fest returns to West Passyunk Avenue & Broad Street on Saturday, September 29. This family-and-dog-friendly event runs from Noon to 7:00 p.m.

The event promises live music, local arts & crafts vendors, kid’s activities, craft beer from a dozen South Philly breweries.

West Passyunk-area restaurants that’ll be servin’ the sausage  include Taproom on 19th, Mike’s BBQ, South Philly Tap Room, Café y Chocolate, and newly-opened The Thirsty Soul. Options include Italian, kielbasa, chorizo, vegan sausages, and much more.

Discounted drink tickets are available, but they’re going quickly! Get ’em while they last here.

Grill master Tim Lidiak.

Now…live music, beer, and sausage are great. But here’s the best part: the proceeds from South Philly SausageFest support the Newbold Community Development Corporation (CDC)’s Street Cleaning Program. This program employees ten disabled Philadelphia residents who clean the commercial corridors along Snyder and West Passyunk Avenues. Newbold CDC is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization which promotes the revitalization of the Newbold community. ​

What's Happening in:  Passyunk Square 

A Cheesesteak with a Difference

Tonight only: enjoy an “Abbruzze Cheesesteak” at Pat’s for a good cause!

From 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. tonight, July 18th, Di Bruno Bros.’ owner Emilio Mignucci will join Frank Olivieri, owner of Pat’s King of Steaks as they share the grill and serve a limited-time Abbruzze Cheesesteak. All proceeds will go to Frank Olivieri’s Spread the Whiz Foundation, which partners with schools to teach kids about healthy food choices through artistic and cooking expressions.

Longtime friends, Emilio and Frank, both graduates of The Restaurant School at Walnut Hill College have grown up in their family businesses. Frank’s great uncle, Pat Olivieri, opened Pat’s King of Steaks in South Philadelphia in 1930. Pat, a hot dog vendor, wanted something different for lunch one day and made a sandwich of chopped steak and onion. He shared it with a regular customer, a cab driver, who loved it so much he spread the word. Frank’s work in the community and growth of Pat’s King of Steaks has allowed his uncle Pat’s legacy to live on over 86 years.

Emilio, with his brother Bill Mignucci and their cousin William Mignucci, Jr. have grown their family business from the original Di Bruno Bros. in the historic Italian Market to a company with five retail stores, e-commerce, national distribution, and a catering and commissary kitchen. As Di Bruno Bros. approaches their 80th anniversary, Emilio is creating a cheesesteak using their “infamous” Abbruzze Cheese Spread – a zesty garlic and herb spread with red chile pepper flakes. Named after the region where Danny and Joe Di Bruno were born, the Abbruzze Cheesesteak will reinvent the King of Steaks for one day only.

Di Bruno Bros. and Emilio join the ranks of Marc Vetri, Jose Garces, and Michael Solomonov
who have all shared the grill with Olivieri to support the Spread the Whiz Foundation.
