Harrah’s Philadelphia >
For a night out that’s no gamble, check out Harrah’s Philadelphia. Start off your evening by trying your luck at one of their 2,000 slot machines (or, if you’re brave, at a table in Pennsylvania’s only World Series

But across the board — especially at this time of year — the best are the ones that offer “out” on their list of sides.
This Lansdowne jewel, with an adorable covered patio, is the perfect spot for any family- friendly meal, but we’re partial to their breakfasts — especially their Broaster chicken and waffles. Yum

Come to this fun and quirky brewery for the
three B’s: beer, barbecue and a breeze. When they open up those massive garage doors, there isn’t a cooler (and hipper) place to be.
One glance at Terrain’s locally minded menu and picturesque greenhouse setting and you won’t need a green thumb to see why Zagat named it one of the “10 Restaurants Worth a Trip to the Philadelphia Suburbs.”
