So, last night. you may have heard about this guy who did a travel show about Philly (Anthony Bourdain, first episode of “The Layover”). He happened to mention, among probably two dozen other suggestions, to check out Hardena, at 1754 Hicks Street, around the corner from the South Philadelphia Tap Room. Well, you can check this one off your list this week and support a good cause at the same time.

The NNA recommends that you bring a take-out container, because seating space will be limited. A portion of the ticket price will help fund the NNA’s efforts in the neighborhood.
