You've seen assorted restaurant weeks, which offer lunch and dinner at a fixed price.
Mount Airy adds a brunch twist starting the weekend of April 5-6.
Mount Airy restaurants will present seasonally inspired, three-course menus during "Mount Airy Brunch Sessions: Four Seasons of Prix-Fixe."
Chef Pat Cancelliere shut down his Italian Market BYOB, 943, a year ago, depriving fanciers of his rustic Italian/Argentinian cuisine.
On March 26 at 7 p.m., Cancelliere - now on the line at Route 6 - will cook a pop-up dinner at the Tap Room on 19th in South Philadelphia.
Menu - perusable here - reads like a greatest-hits parade, starting with grilled pulpo, segueing into empanadas, and then mollejas (grilled sweetbreads) and his housemade mixed grill, capped by dessert of flan and alfajores.
Irish pubs are almost as plentiful here in Philadelphia as the hordes of green-beer-drunk fools bused in on St. Patrick’s Day to drink at them.
And that shouldn’t come as a surprise, since the Gaelic tradition of enjoying good whiskey and a beer goes back centuries. In no particular order, here DrinkPhilly.com presents its picks for the city’s best Irish bars.

That magic number that we shorten to 3.14159?
Shorten it further to 3.14 and you have Friday's date.
Homemade duck sausage is not found on the menu at Cuba Libre, but chef Scott McLeod is well-versed in the art of charcuterie.
He was one of 10 local chefs who gave it their best shot last night by interpreting "comfort food" for an invitation-only crowd of WMGK listeners at John DeBella's seventh annual Comfort Food Fest. Adding to the comfort were beer pairings.
McLeod's "Biscuits and Gravy" (duck sausage, duck gravy, brie-chive biscuits, satsuma tangerine and peppercres) won the night, according to judges Mike Jerrick (of Fox29), cookbook author Hope Cohen, and Philly.com's Michael Klein.
The current Guinness World Record for largest bar crawl is held by Kansas City, Mo., as 4,885 participants visited 10 of 21 participating pubs in an eight-hour time span last year. (It was a benefit for Crawl for Cancer.)
On May 3, Philly2Night.com and UpcomingEvents.com are presenting “The Crawl,” an attempt to shatter the mark. Organizers hope to get 15,000 people. A charity has not yet been announced.
“The Crawl,” an all-day event, will start at noon at more than 100 venues in various city neighborhoods, including Northern Liberties, South Street, Old City, Rittenhouse, University City, South Philly, Northeast Philly, Center City, Midtown Village and Fairmount.
The same people who brought us the Philadelphia Bacon & Beer Festival last year - Aaron Cohen, Nick Korn and Danya Henninger - are behind Whiskey Rebellion Philadelphia, a showcase of American brown spirits.
The booze-tasting event will come off 2:30 to 5 p.m. Sunday, April 13 at the Theater of Living Arts (334 South St.)
A $40 ticket includes 12 different whiskey samples (American-made spirits from Angel's Envy, Beam, Brown Forman, Catoctin Creek, Dad's Hat, Four Roses, High West, Hudson, Koval, Michter's, Philadelphia Distilling, Sazerac, Templeton, Western Grace, Western Spirits, WhistlePig, Wild Turkey, Four Roses and more); a cocktail demo; and free bites throughout the event from Serrano in Old City. Jen and Donal McCoy will serve flatbreads in both meat and vegetarian styles and its signature meatloaf sandwiches.
