More than just a bar and grill. More than simply a local hangout in Northeast Philadelphia. Redz Bar & Grill is a home for anyone in and around Philadelphia to have a great time, with great prices, great service, great food, and of course great drinks; not to mention the best parking in Northeast Philadelphia! Located on Solly and Roosevelt Blvd, Redz has been a home and a supporter of local residents, businesses, and charities for well over two years greatly due to the help from owner/entrepreneur and fellow Northeast Philadelphia resident Matt Applebaum.
With the Summer quickly approaching, Redz is reinventing itself and is now introducing new themed nights to the Northeast, including; Movie Madness Mondays, Live Acoustic Music every Tuesday, and Throwback Thursdays with your favorite music and videos from the 80’s, 90’s, and the early 2000’s; not to mention the weekly Friday and Saturday Dress 2 Impress Dance Party and Sunday Funday with beer pong and flip cup. And now, to start the season off with a bang, Redz Bar & Grill would like to announce The 1st Annual Redz Idol: Karaoke Competition, Sponsored by Penny Productions and Stoli Vodka! So, they have one question for you, ”Do you have what it takes to sing your way to Mexico?”
Starting Wednesday, April 3, 2013, (for eight weeks), karaoke singers will be singing for their life and competing week after week for a chance to win amazing prizes and tons of cash. Special guest judges, including local DJ, (and the Redz Friday Night Music Master), Mike Stampone, will be naming a weekly winner, (with great prizes from great sponsors), until finally the winners battle it out on June 5th for a vacation to Mexico! Redz Idol: Karaoke Competition is only the first in many big events to come your way this Summer and all year around!
With the help of a fantastic team of managers, bartenders, waitresses, barbacks, DJ’s, security, cooks, and regular customers, Redz will be your destination for great times, great food, and great drinks! Redz Bar & Grill is looking forward to a great Spring/Summer season and to keep up with upcoming events, live entertainment, and weekly parties, follow them at Facebook.com/Redzbarandgrill or check out their website at www.Redzbarandgrill.com
Donny: This month, Sean and I went to the Dog & Bull – Brew & Music House in Croydon. The Dog & Bull has been on our ‘to do’ list for quite some time and I’m so happy that we finally made it! It’s right on Rt13 next to the Train Station and it’s an easy drive from anywhere. Take Rt13, or 95 to Street road and you’re there – Very easy to get to!
Have you heard of Arnold’s Family Fun Center in Oaks PA yet? It’s one of the largest indoor entertainment centers in the country! This place isn’t just for kids and families it’s for adults-after all, we just wanna have fun too!

There are go-karts, rides, air hockey, arcade games, laser tag, bounce, miniature golf. In the midst of all that you will find Arnold’s Bowling Center with 20 lanes lit up in black-lites & laser lighting with 4 huge screens over every 4 lanes so you can watch your favorite sports team or live bands perform. Or you can chill out in the VIP section (the last 8 lanes) with hard wood floors, comfy couches and chairs, and its very own dance floor too! When that hunger really has to be fed, walk right over to Arnold’s Bar & Bistro; a full-sized dining room, featuring some great American cuisine. Sit in the bar area and enjoy daily drink specials. Who doesn’t love ROCK & ROLL and DANCING? Well then you‘ve got to check out the newest addition, The Water Tower!
