Hunger Is Not a Game! We're boosting the signal for a Philabundance Neighborhood Food Drive happening now. This idea started with the "Instant Winner" free food coupons from Acme, but donations from all sources are welcome. Drop-off points include Northern Liberties Neighbors Association (NLNA) (700 N 3rd St), South Kensington Community Partners (1301 N 2nd), PlayArts (1241 N Front St), the UPS Store (3rd & Girard), and Spot's Spot Pet Grooming (123 W Girard). Among most-needed items are canned fruits/veggies, tuna/meat & soup; cooking oil; cereal, peanut butter and jelly; rice & whole grain pasta. http://www.nlna.org/neighborhood-food-drive/

Pizza Boy made an Arctic Splash-inspired beer, because Fishtown

Turns out Instagram is what led to the brilliantly conceptualized brew in the first place. Garage Fishtown, the can-centric beer and arcade haven at the corner of Frankford and Girard, has a snappy Insta game that caught the attention of Pizza Boy head brewer Terry Hawbaker.

    Pizza Boy made an Arctic Splash-inspired beer, because Fishtown
    Pizza Boy Brewing is located out in Enola, Pa., but folks working there definitely get Fishtown. This June, the Central Pennsylvania brewery is rolling out a new beer that pretty much encapsulates the evolving character of the neighborhood in one little can. Introducing Arctic Trash. Yep, they went there.

    Philly's getting a big new 'boulder lounge' for people who want to take rock climbing to the next level
    If you're into rock climbing gyms, get ready to take rappelling to the next level: Philly is getting a "bouldering lounge." Tufas Boulder Lounge, created by three local climbing buddies, will soft-open in June in a former warehouse in Kensington.
