Hub Bub Grub

(10/20/09 2:00pm)

Today while you're going to grab that post-Phillies game hangover egg and cheese sandwich from Bui's, you might notice a new food truck parked on the corner of 38th and Spruce. Hub Bub, a gourmet coffee shop on wheels, debuts on campus today from Penn grad Drew Crockett. Although we've seen a lot of new food joints pop up around campus recently, Hub Bub adds to the scene with some international flavor. Well maybe that was a lie, but the truck features espresso machines handmade in Florence, Italy and the coffee is from Oregon, which at least feels foreign to Philadelphians.

Better Than Blarney?

Bored of Smokes? Luckily for you Blockley Pourhouse, the University City gastropub that was scheduled to open in March, will finally open tonight. Located on 38th and Ludlow, the Blockley (which was formally an almshouse, city hospital, orphanage and insane asylum) will offer 24 draft beers and pubfare such as lobster pierogies and poutine (although why we need the staple fast food from Quebec, I'm not sure). Determined not to become just another Local 44, the Blockley will also feature local bands and DJs nightly, kicking off with DJ Sammy Slice on opening night.
