Lee's Hoagie House traces its origins back to 1953, when a small storefront at 19th Street and Cheltenham Avenue in Mount Airy, Philadelphia, began to lure in a dedicated clientele with its addictively delicious hoagies and cheesesteaks. Over the years, the popular sandwich shop has blossomed into a Philadelphia-area institution, spreading out to 17 locations throughout the region, all turning out tasty sandwiches with roast beef, turkey, chicken, and Italian meats, as well as veggies, fresh cheese, and the restaurant's secret oil recipe. Far more than a mere walk-in sandwich joint, Lee's can cater social gatherings and lunch meetings with delectable sandwich plates or fuel parties with spicy chicken wings and fresh salads.
Whenever Without A Cue Productions throws a party, someone is killed. But within 90 minutes, the culprit is always named.
Without A Cue's actors lead participants through murder mystery dinners, killing off willing victims and helping guests solve the murder. The dynamic cast slips into character easily, whether they're performing at Peddler's Village and Fisher's Tudor House or at a private in-home party. These can take place in a living room, out in a backyard, or in a crawlspace.
Before the event, guests receive a packet of information. As soon as they arrive to the party, they're greeted by cast members, who drop clues as the guests mingle. It's the party-goers' job to find them and then try to figure out whodunit.
Abe Levis fled Lithuania when he was 14 years old to avoid compulsory service in the czar's army. He found sanctuary in America, where he was able to enjoy a normal childhood before meeting his wife and opening a restaurant. In addition to serving sandwiches, fish cakes, and hot dogs, Abe made his own sodas with a marble soda fountain that he purchased in 1895. On summer nights, the restaurant's roof served as a movie screen for the silent films that people watched in the old days, before actors learned to talk. A century later, Levis Hot Dogs still stands in the same location that was once a haven for empty bellies during the Depression era and a sight for sore eyes returning home from fighting in World War II.
The smell of chocolate-chip cookies baking in the oven has a tendency to unleash waves of childhood memories, especially when those cookies are iconic Nestlé Toll House creations.

Even though YoFresh Yogurt Cafe’s flavors rotate on the regular, every swirl of their frozen yogurt comes jam-packed with body-boosting benefits. Each cup carries a bounty of probiotics, eschewing fat, artificial sweeteners, and other unnatural products such as the tears of a frankenstein monster. What’s left is a kosher treat available in nonfat or no-sugar-added flavors such as mint, green apple sorbet, cinnamon roll, and banana. Starting from that dulcet base, gustatory adventurers can pile their dessert with toppings such as fruit, candy, and cereal. For an alternative summertime snack, guests can opt for a fresh-fruit protein smoothie.
Since its humble south Philadelphia beginnings in the 1990s, PrimoHoagies has quickly expanded throughout the region and garnered several awards on the strength of its cold-cut sandwiches, made with Thumann's brand of gourmet meats and cheeses. The shop's robust menu features dozens of specialty hoagies, many of which were created in-house rather than underwater, as is the industry norm. Sharp Italian hoagies teem with prosciutto and genoa salami, and pork Diablo hoagies marry Thumann's homestyle roasted pork with a blend of piquant spices.
