    River Wards: 5 Bars to Dive Into After a Long Day
    Fishtown and Port Richmond are scattered with notable, big name bars that command the lions share of the area's nightlife. However, if you don't feel like waiting in the inevitable lines and paying for brand name, consider trying one of these dive bars for a fresh weekend experience.

10th anniversary beer garden party at Memphis Tap

Where: Memphis Taproom at 2331 E. Cumberland St., 19125

    10th anniversary beer garden party at Memphis Tap
    Back when beer gardens were a relative rarity in Philadelphia, this Kensington corner tavern opened one in its back yard. Ten years later, the light-strung picnic tables are just as inviting. New this year: the food truck is gone, so there's more room to hang out and the full menu is available.

Pulling this announcement from a Fishtown discussion group and public school parent Micah Hanson. Awesome news for Hackett. "We learned about a week ago (and were okayed to release the news yesterday) that Horatio B. Hackett Elementary School has been chosen as the site for the Philadelphia Eagles Playground Build. The Philadelphia Eagles made the announcement to the students and staff yesterday at Hackett. Principal Kimmel, the Hackett staff, Friends Of Hackett and many tremendous partners have been working for 5 years to revitalize this barren asphalt yard. The Philadelphia Water Department has already committed $1.3 million to construct a massive stormwater management system including rain gardens and other elements (construction start TBD). The PTSSD granted the funds for the decorative gateway now ornamenting the entrance at York and Sepviva. This latest news from the Eagles will allow us to realize a large portion of the rest of the plan. Details are evolving, but the Eagles will provide play equipment, surfacing, a turf field, and other accessories while the Mural Arts Philadelphia will be installing a mural covering a significant chunk of the building facing the yard. This will all happen pretty quickly so expect big changes soon!"
