Martha: In true Philly style, Martha is a hoagie-centric bar. All drinks are on draft, with local breweries, distilleries and wineries spotlighted on the menu.

Martha is an important bar. We don't know how else to say it. Go there to see what's being created in the city, or go because it is a warm, welcoming spot to hang. - Philadelphia Magazine

Lost Bar: Your nearby dive spot for brunch, conversation, and great music. According to Philly Home Girl Jeanne Whipple, Lost Bar is home to Philadelphia's best Bloody Mary.

Pizza Brain: Increase the piece! The country’s first pizza museum is decked out in colorful murals and serves up a mean slice.

Thang Long Noodle: If you want authentic Vietnamese food, look no further... This family-owned eatery offers classics such as pho and bubble tea. Even Craig Laban agrees!

SCHOOL SPIRIT: PHILLY PAPER JAM

The Philly Home Girls and Blue Truck Enterprises believe that school success is necessary for the long-term health and vitality of its surrounding neighborhood.

​In coalition with the Philly Paper Jam, the Philly Home Girls and Blue Truck have funded Kensington’s Henry A. Brown Elementary School 100% for the 2016-17 school year. All of H.A. Brown’s 125 classrooms will have their paper needs met in full through our funding, so that teachers can teach and students can learn without fear of resource shortage.

H.A. Brown Academics invited the Philly Home Girls, Blue Truck Enterprises and United Makers to celebrate the arrival of their paper supply. We enjoyed a welcoming breakfast and joined the kindergarten classes for their morning projects!
