What's Happening in:  East Passyunk Crossing 

Bottle Shop moving two blocks up to Chartreuse, which is closing

A liquor license application has popped up in the window of the Chartreuse flower shop at 1616 E. Passyunk Ave., and it doesn’t mean orchid-garnished martinis (which we saw at a wedding once).

Circles at 1514 Tasker St., the best Thai place in the city, if you ask us, is pairing up with South Philly favorite The Bottle Shop for a five-course, five-beer dinner on Wednesday, Jan. 30, Foobooz reports.
