According to Foobooz's Jason Sheehan, "West Philly is the future of Philadelphia. To eat here is to taste what everyone else will be eating five or 10 years down the line." Take a culinary tour through African, Middle Eastern, Indian, Asian, and other cuisines!

    The Best Places to Eat in West Philly and University City
    With everything from brewpubs to Ethiopian cafes, West Philly has a wealth of places just waiting to feed you. West Philly is Philly's most perfect food neighborhood: It's our culinary laboratory, where one-offs and wild knots of Asian and African cuisines feed the neighbors and try to make their marks.

As we were trying to figure out how to send some kids from our community to see the Black Panther Movie for free , Desiree Peterkin Bell stepped up to the plate to sponsor 60 kids from the community to see Black Panther on Thursday night.We thank you for this and we look forward to hanging out with the students on Thursday Night. With all the negativity on social media and in the world , I think its very important that we show the students positive images of African Americans.
