Default Going to Philly...

So my Father's Day present was a trip to Philly for a baseball game and a brewpub. I'm coming on the 23 and staying overnight. I get one brewpub after the game on saturday for dinner. We are staying at the Sheraton by the airport, so I don't want to drive too far in between the park/airport. Can someone help me out? If you could only go to one place, where would it be?

Personally if i could go to one place in Philly it wouldn't be a brew pub, it would be http://www.patskingofsteaks.com/ Best Philly steaks in Philly!

Thanks! I'll check them all out when I get home. We are thinking of hitting Pat's on the way home sunday afternoon.

I'd go to South Philly Tap Room, Devils Den, and a few other places right in the South Philly area. Not far of a drive from the park. Not "in" the city either.

Monk's is awesome! If you're looking for a smaller place, may I recommend Grace Tavern? Awesome food, great beer (not the biggest selection). If your bartender has long hair in a ponytail and calls you "dude," you're in luck. He's awesome.

I love monks as well. Awesome mussels. Another great one is the Eulogy bar in old city. Another Belgian bar with over 200 beers. Great mussels as well.

I just got back today. We went to Triumph and walked around to a few of the historical sites. I saw Eulogy Bar, but my wife refused to go in because she hates Belgian Beers! I would have left her outside but there was a few shady-types around and I couldn't bring myself to do it

We want to go back maybe next year and spend some more time around the area. This was jsut a quick, overnight.

PS.. great stadium you guys got there. Much better than the old Veteran's Stadium. If it wasn't so damn hot that would have been one of my better baseball trips.
