Sunday Funday in honor of the Phillies

Sunday Funday in honor of the Phillies

Today, Sunday, April 26, Lo Spiedo is hosting a Sunday Funday as the Phillies take on the Brewers.

The restaurant, which is only a short walk from Citizen’s Bank Park, will be open from 11am-7pm, selling $4 hometown beers and food specials.

They’ll also have cornole set up on the patio, which I guess might sound fun for people for whom “beer and cornhole” doesn’t conjure up images of Kappa Sigma fraternity boys.
