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.
