Restaurant notes: Watch your bags; BBQ on the way

Restaurant notes: Watch your bags; BBQ on the way


  • Women always should keep an eye on their handbags, but two recent incidents at Honey's in Northern Liberties suggests that two eyes may be in order. On Saturday, a guy carrying a large bag walked into the popular bruncherie. He briefly bent over, snared a patron's bag, stuffed it into his bag, and bolted out the door. A neighboring patron ran after the guy, tackled him, and retrieved the bag. Honey's owner Ellen Mogell says the victim chose not to press charges. Too bad. The same creep did the same thing a couple of weeks ago, and the empty bag was found on Fairmount Avenue. It's possible that the thief is working with two women who act as lookouts, Mogell says.
  • In brighter news, those who score an invite to next week's private grand-opening parties at Baby Blues BBQ (3402-04 Sansom St. in University City) will get to meet Jonathan Goldsmith, who plays the character of "the most interesting man in the world." The California-based Baby Blues will open softly on Sunday, Oct. 3 with a live broadcast of Anthony Gargano and Ike Reese’s post-Eagles game show, and after a few nights of dry runs will go "live" to the paying public on Friday, Oct. 8. Here's the backstory on the joint from early August.
