Tastes of Philadelphia

The tastes of Philadelphia are immediately associated with cheesesteaks and pretzels. I’ll admit it, when visitors come to Philadelphia I direct them to South Philadelphia for Pat’s or Geno’s Steaks. While you’re here, don’t leave without trying at least one, wiz with.
Also, while you’re here, make sure you experience many of the other delights Philadelphia has to offer. To experience many of the city’s hot spots, members of the Host Chapter have volunteered to escort groups of up to 10 PRSA members to some of their favorite restaurants. Let us show you that Philly food IS more then just cheesesteaks and pretzels!  
Everyone will pay their own way, and there might be a taxi ride involved, but you’ll have the opportunity to taste some of what Philly has to offer in some of our most interesting, vibrant neighborhoods.  You’ll be getting the “inside scoop” on where Philly Foodies like to go. 
We will offer an interesting range of restaurants to suit various tastes. Restaurants include:
* Sabrina’s Café – One of Philly’s BYOB’s that serves breakfast all day in Bella Vista
* Penang – Malaysian cuisine in Chinatown
* El Vez – Mexican-American meets East L.A. in a Tijuana Taxi in Midtown
* La Scala – Fine Italian-American home-style cuisine in Historical Philadelphia
* Aqua – Malaysian and Thia cuisine in Washington Square
* Positano Coast – Modern Italian cuisine and seafood in Olde City
* Philadelphia Fish and Company – Seafood in Olde City
* Monk’s – Belgian pub in Rittenhouse
If you’re going to be in Philadelphia on Saturday, October 20 to take part in any of the pre-conference activities, OR, if you are not attending one of the PRSA Section Dinners on Monday, October 22, then consider joining some of your PRSA colleagues for dinner at one of Philadelphia’s many wonderful restaurants.
Look for a flyer at Registration, and/or come to the Philadelphia Chapter Booth in the Exhibit Hall, where we will have the sign-up sheet with the names and descriptions of the restaurants, and information on what time and where in the hotel to meet (most reservations will be for 7 p.m.). Spots for the escorted dining outings are limited, as we want to keep the experience relaxed and intimate, so you MUST sign-up.
If you cannot make dinner, stop by the booth and we will also have some excellent recommendations with special deals for those who want to venture on their own.
