    Residents wait wearily as Water Dept. takes months to replace sewers and mains
    On the 2300 block of South Mole Street, a temporary "No Parking" sign is stapled to a telephone poll, banning cars during street work scheduled between "1/10/18" and "T.B.D." As in, "to be determined." With Memorial Day just around the bend, residents say they're still waiting for the city to determine when the construction will end.

Church-Themed Cocktail Bar Goes All in With Confession Booth, Pews, and Halos

The Thirsty Soul (1551 W. Passyunk Ave) is billed as a cocktail bar, and Hines’ background is behind the stick, but there...

Google Maps Thirsty Soul is going into the corner of 16th and W. Passyunk Avenue

    Church-Themed Cocktail Bar Goes All in With Confession Booth, Pews, and Halos
    Owner Billy Hines is hoping he doesn't offend anyone with the church-themed Thirsty Soul, his upcoming cocktail bar and all-day bruncherie heading to West Passyunk Avenue in South Philly. The bar is really committing to the concept, with pews, a confessional, a stained-glass bar top, and a throne/"pope chair" complete with wings and a lit-up halo.
