The Twisted Tail, Philadelphia’s Southern-inspired bourbon house and juke joint, celebrates Easter with a decadent brunch and a rollicking evening of blues.
The Easter brunch menu features two special offerings: pan-seared banana French toast with foie gras, finished with a housemade cinnamon whiskey syrup and grilled thick sliced ham with shelled peas, spring onion biscuits and red-eye gravy.
The Twisted Tail has also added new brunch items, including praline French toast with whipped mascarpone, pecans and maple syrup; catfish sandwich with tartar sauce, pear slaw and arugula on a baguette; brisket hash with smoked tomato jam and poached eggs; and egg cassoulet with black eyed peas, roasted tomatoes and grilled baguette. The brunch menu may be found here.
Things take a shift from 5 to 10 p.m., when you can channel your inner Muddy Waters, B.B. King, or Etta James upstairs in the Juke Joint. Mikey Junior & Friends invite you to grab a guitar off the wall, take the mic and join an all-ages blues jam. Whether you fancy yourself a performer with a yearning for the spotlight or just enjoy yodeling in the shower, this weekly blues jam is a guaranteed good time.
The Juke Joint hosts a spirited open blues jam every Sunday. More information on The Tail’s Juke Joint as well as the live music calendar may be found at: http://www.thetwistedtail.com/live-music/.
Make this Easter a yummy and entertaining one! The Twisted Tail is located in the heart of Headhouse Square at 509 South 2nd Street in Philadelphia.

We were almost convinced we could get through the entire winter without it dropping below 50 degrees, but that no longer seems to be the case. So, what can you do when you and the family want to get out of the house but it feels like 8 degrees outside? Try indoor mini golf at Linvilla Orchards!
Linvilla Orchard’s Fore! The Planet is a highly interactive and playful museum exhibit created by the Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia! This exhibition pairs important environmental issues with the fun of miniature golf. Eighteen unique educational holes explore butterfly metamorphosis, a tropical rainforest, evolution, dinosaur extinction, food chains, and more. Perfect for kids of all ages, your entire family will enjoy playing miniature golf while learning about our environment – every step of the way.
This exhibit goes until April 3, 2016 and occurs Monday- Sunday, 9 a.m.- 5 p.m. For kids 10 and under, Fore! The Planet is only $4.95- and for everyone else it’s only $6.95! You can avoid the cold, and you can avoid the bank breaking family outing and spend a fun and educational (and slightly competitive) day with the family playing indoor mini golf.
