Best Gay Bar with a Philanthropic Heart

Tabu Lounge and Sports Bar is the area’s premiere gay sports bar. That makes it unique, but there’s also another reason it stands out: its philanthropic spirit. While it might seem odd to have benefits at a bar that serves tacos, chicken wings and Miller Lite specials, Tabu has stepped up to host events like a Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell Repeal party (which, like, totally worked!) and the ongoing campaign to eliminate gender stickers with SEPTA fares, and others, all with great turnouts. Next time you have inclination to go out and grab a drink, check Tabu’s Facebook or drop by; a portion of what you pay could end up supporting nonprofit programming, which will make the next drink taste that much better.

Tabu Lounge and Sports Bar, 200 S. 12th Street. 215.964.9675.

Best Public Place to Take a Drunken Piss

It’s easy for the toxic stench of trash, debris and piss to sting your nostrils walking around 13th and Walnut streets nearly anytime of the day. The latter seems to come from the beautiful black and gray cobblestones of Chancellor Street, where gays and straights alike take a leak after bars close, and there’s nowhere else to go. Sandwiched between a large red-bricked building on one side and slabs of concrete on another, the narrow street is perfectly secluded without being too far from the bars and close enough to IHOP or 13th Street Pizza for some greasy drunk food. Then again, people could actually have used the restrooms in the bars.

Better Than Best: Hidden Treasures and Random Obsessions
By PW Staff

Ever think to yourself: Hey, I wonder where I can have a threesome and then promptly forget about it? Well, one of our writers thinks he's found that place. Want Mexican food that doesn't burn on the way out? Of course you do. More of these questions and answers have found their way into this year's Better Than Best issue. And what's better than best, you ask? We have no idea. We just knew we couldn't use Best Of, because another publication in this town has it on lockdown. But that doesn't mean we didn't put an enormous amount of effort into bringing you the most random hidden gems Philly has to offer. Because we did. And we think we've got a pretty good list going on here.
