Hey Philler Phans! Welcome to Weekend Philler Episode 802! Filmed live in front of a studio audience of Imani Carter and Morgan Dougherty. haha. (Inside joke for the Phillerinos, there are usually only a handful of people on set when we film the studio part, especially in the temporary studio we are using.

This week we’re starting off in Pottstown, PA at Gatsby’s Pub inside SunnyBrook. We were introduced to Gatsby’s when we visited Soul Joel’s Comedy club and, as advertised, Gatsby’s did not disappoint! One of the things that makes Philler great is when we tap into a network with cool stuff to offer we stay connected to that network to get more ideas.

Next, we headed over to Historic Smithville, NJ. Smithville is one of my favorite places in South Jersey and I am really excited for some of my Pennsylvania friends that are not familiar with it to get a chance to see why I love the quaint little village on the way to the shore. We also do a deep dive into the he Colonial Inn.

Next up, we visited our good friends John Yi Fish Market at the Reading Terminal Market. “Corner the Market” is a new feature in Season 8 that we do a little meet and great with the owners and operators of The Reading Terminal Market. For me, they are just as interesting as the shops they own. What a cast of characters we have coming up!

Later, we check out the brand new Ceasars Sportsbook at Harrah’s Philadelphia. What a great place to catch a craft beer, some great food and wager on your favorite sports! It’s also got a TV that is 27 feet! I’m definitely getting one of these for my living room. haha. Seriously though, not matter where you sit, you can see the TV perfectly.

Finally, we stopped by Rita’s Italian Ice & Frozen Custard to try the PUMPKIN Cold Brew Frozen Coffee just in time for fall! I love coffee, I love pumpkin and now I can get them frozen in a way only Rita’s can. Thanks to Mantua Rita’s owner Katie for the hospitality.

Here are the segments
