This week on FYI, we're going down the shore.

This week on FYI Philly, we're down the shore for the start of another season of summer fun in the sun and sand. We have things to do on a rainy day. We'll take you to an old place made new again and shop a Philadelphia boutique popping up down the shore.

Plus, we've got lots of tasty eats, treats and supplies delivered right to your beach chair or blanket and a great beach-like getaway if you can't get to the shore. FYI Philly airs Saturdays at 7 p.m. and encores Sunday at midnight.
