RhawnhurstNew owners have made remarkable improvements to this neighborhood cafe, located on Castor and Rhawn Avenues, in the heart of Northeast Philadelphia. The Rhawnhurst is newly renovated and the menu has been totally re-vamped and streamlined.  Still a neighborhood favorite with its bar area, flat screen televisions, bar fare menu, daily drink and beer specials and The Best FRIDAY AFTER-WORK PARTY around, with DJ music all nite long. And Saturday nights they have Karaoke too! During Phillies games, from pitch to pitch get $4.00 domestic pitchers, 50 cent wings and $2.50 Domestic bottles! Now The Rhawnhurst is quickly becoming known for its great restaurant; attracting happy diners from the suburbs and surrounding neighborhoods-and its all because of its fabulous food and new look! The newly renovated dining area is like sitting in a center city restaurant but without the hassle of being stuck in traffic and without the high end prices. The area is now separated by doors, even the walls can be completely enclosed for your dining pleasure. Rich hardwood floors, fans now hang from the wood paneled ceiling, and the recessed lighting adds to the nice ambience.  I found it very unique that the walls are lined with artwork from neighborhood artists, who want to showcase their work. I was told that a few pieces have been sold and one artist was offered a show of their own. Equipped with its own sound system, this area is also available for private parties like Communions, Graduation Parties, Rehearsal Dinners, Birthday Parties, and any other special occasion. Catering for up to 100 guests, starting from just $9.95.  Executive Chef, Christian, knows what he is doing with over 25 years of experience creating his specialties at many high end, fine dining restaurants and steakhouses.  He has now brought his expertise to this neighborhood spot and from the expressions of the many diners on this Wednesday evening; I believe the Rhawnhurst may become one your favorite spots to dine as well.  Everything is home-made, the pizza dough/bread/rolls are freshly baked from scratch, they hand-cut their own steaks and fish, grind their own meat for burgers; all high quality ingredients and lots of love goes into to every item that comes out of his kitchen. The menu is totally streamlined offering Appetizers ranging from $4.00 to $9.00, with French Onion Soup, a variety of Salads, Jumbo Lump Crab Cakes, Scallops and more. From “The Grill”, you can get your choice of House, BBQ, Cajun, or Lemon Pepper for entrees ranging from a Full Rack of Pork Ribs ($17.00) to their scrumptious 14 oz. Boneless Rib eye ($18.00), or their 8 oz. Ahi Tuna ($16.00). They also offer grilled Salmon Filet, 1/2 Roasted “Beer Can” Chicken and NY Strip Steaks. There are also selections of sauces and other additions from Crab Legs to Jumbo Lump Crabmeat and Asparagus for just a little extra. The other entrees offered range from just $13.00 to $16.00, which includes Herb Crusted Tilapia, or Pesto Roasted Salmon to Shrimp Fra Diavolo and more. Bottled Wine Service is also available for your dining pleasure. On this dining out, my Waitress, Gail was superb, very friendly and was quick bringing out my entire meal.  I ordered the Tomato and Mozzarella Salad ($5.00). It was presented beautifully, with Slices of Hothouse Tomatoes, Buffalo Mozzarella, Bermuda Onions, Topped with Basil Pesto, and a Balsamic Glaze. It was simply delicious and very fresh. My entree was the Chicken Piccata ($14.00). The Chicken Breasts were pan seared and placed on top of Mashed Potatoes, with Wild Mushrooms, Asparagus, in a Lemon Butter Sauce. It was fantastic! The chicken was so tender soaked up in that sweet and buttery sauce-it just melted in my mouth. There is also a kids menu and desserts too. This place is definitely worth checking out-once you do you will keep on coming back! The Rhawnhurst offers some sweet specials too! On Fathers Day, Dad gets to eat for FREE, all day long from 12pm to 8:00pm! ON Memorial Day Weekend, Friday to Monday evening come out for their All U Can Eat Hard Shell Crabs and other food and drink specials! Every Monday Buy one entree get the next one 1/2 off! Tuesday it’s 1/2 price Burgers, Wednesday, it’s All U Can Eat Hard Shell Crabs and staying with tradition every Thursday is the Seafood Bash- Crab Legs, Mussels, Clams, Shrimp, Scallops, Corn on the Cob, steamed in a Spicy Broth with dipping Bread! YUMM!  The Rhawnhurst is open 365 days a year! Bar hours are from 11am to 2am, and the kitchen is open daily from 4:00pm to midnight, except for some special occasions!

The Remedy

One day, Mary goes to see her doctor all black and blue
Doctor: “Mary, What happened?”
Mary: “Doctor, I don’t know what to do. Every time my husband Bradley comes home drunk, he beats me to a pulp!”
Doctor: “I have a real good remedy for that. When your husband comes home drunk, just take a glass of sweet tea and start swishing it in your mouth, but don’t swallow. Just keep swishing and swishing until he goes to bed in his drunken stupor.”

Two weeks later Mary comes back to the doctor looking fresh and reborn.
Mary: “Doctor, that was a brilliant idea! Every time my husband came home drunk, I swished with sweet tea. I swished and swished and he never touched me!”
Doctor: “You see how much keeping your mouth shut helps?”

Holding Up Her End

After being married for 44 years, Mike McCullough took a careful look at his wife Sue one day and said, “You know … 44 years ago we had a cheap apartment, a cheap car, slept on a sofa bed, and watched a 10 inch black and white tv, but I got to sleep every night with a hot 25 year old girl! Now I have a $500k home, a $45k car, a nice big bed, and a plasma tv, but I’m sleeping with a 69 year old woman. It seems to me as though you’re not holding up your side of things.”

Sue, being a very reasonable woman, told Mike to go out and find himself a hot 25 year old girl, and she would make sure that he would once again be living in a cheap apartment, driving a cheap car, sleeping on the sofa bed, and watching a 10 inch tv.

Funeral for a Friend

When Aj passed away his wife Eileen put the usual death notice in the paper, but added that he died of gonorrhea. No sooner were the papers delivered when Mike, a friend of Aj’s phoned Eileen and complained bitterly. “You know very well that he died of diarrhea, not gonorrhea” came the angry voice. Eileen replied, “I nursed him night and day Mike, so of course I know he died of diarrhea, but I thought it would be better for posterity to remember him as a great lover, instead of the big shit he always was!”

Gay Love

Elton John and his mate David decided to have a baby. They had their sperm mixed together and had a surrogate mother artificially inseminated with it. When the baby was born, Elton and David were waiting at the hospital. They were ushered into a ward where a dozen babies were lying in their cribs, eleven of whom were crying and screaming. Over in the corner, one baby was smiling serenely. A nurse came over to the both of them and indicated that the happy baby was theirs.
“Isn’t it wonderful?” Elton said to David. “All of these un-happy babies and yet ours is so happy. This just proves the superiority of gay love!” Overhearing Elton, the the nurse replied “Oh sure, he’s happy now, but just watch what happens when I pull the thermometer out of his ass!”
