We're celebrating all things Irish at the Swift Half Pub; from the brews to the brogue - to the bangers in a blanket. Also, one lucky dog gets a day at the spa and a chance for a better life. And, one woman is on a mission to eat and blog her way through all 239 of philly mag's best dishes. Plus, as spring approaches, we give an update on the coolest spot in the City. Plus, the hottest spring fashion trends from Philly Mag, and new, hip eateries that may be the best dining out deal in town. In January, Philadelphia Magazine published a list of 239 of the best dishes to eat in Philly. A Villanova College senior saw that as a challenge and is on a mission to try every one of them before year's end, and blog about it. Think Julie & Julia with a Philadelphia twist. Karen joins her for lunch and, together, they tick another dish off the list.
