July is full of activity as we jump right into things. Vegans can head over to their very own festival, while home cooks can learn from one of our favorite chefs. And let's not forget the dining special happening at Old Vine Cafe. It's a good thing you've got us here to steer you in the right direction. Now go out there and eat already!

Philly's Best Debuts BBQ Favorites - multiple locations
Starting today, you can officially get your hands on a few summertime specials at your local Philly's Best. The quartet of eats share something in common: all feature meats smothered in a sweet BBQ sauce. Try it on a salad, burger, cheesesteak on Amoroso roll or a chicken cheesesteak (our new fave)! Add an order of fries and maybe a Tastykake, and you're golden. Check out their website for your nearest PB. www.eatphillysbest.com.

Glee Donuts and Burgers Grand Opening - Anaheim
When a storefront is ready to debut their second location, it's time to get excited. The corner of Ball and Beach is the lucky recipient of a shop that's way more than the name describes. How about Garlic Fries topped with a drizzle of olive oil and chopped garlic? We are currently crushing on their Spamurrito and Blueberry Donuts. Head over this Sunday morning to celebrate Anaheim's launch. The first 100 guests are treated to a legit breakfast burrito, and the next 100 will receive a free donut. Fun Fact: Glee's burgers are also nationally ranked. 3024 W Ball Rd, Ste A, (714) 816-5777; www.gleednb.com.
