It's a shame that such a sign is necessary but good on Philadelphia for the fine and possible jail time.

Hm, I haven't had that happen yet. Probably because it is drawing info from email rather than text messages.

Sidecar has quality and varied beers on tap. I'd consider simply another of Philadelphia's excellent beer pubs except that the food is also very good. Consider it a restaurant with good beer and a hipster vibe. You won't get a lot of smiles with your service (because that's not the hipster way) but I have always found it very attentive - no complaints at all.

Not cheap but food and service are excellent. Good choice for a relatively special occasion or a random 'treat yourself' dinner.
