Sunday Spotlight…Pub 36

image

There are many great places to spend your off time in the northeast. Today, we are featuring hot spot, Pub 36, located at 7681 Frankford Ave., Philadelphia, PA. I recently visited the Pub to see local bands (feature on the One Unified Project of course) and was impressed with not only the service, but how spacious it was. I got to talking to Glenn, one of the owners/managers and he was gracious enough to tell me a bit more about Pub 36. Read on to learn more about this hot spot.

How long has Pub 36 been in business?
Come the end of June, we will be celebrating our one year anniversary.

What is your role there?
I am one of six owner/managers. (Glenn, Stephanie, Bob, Michelle, Joe, & Barb) We make it a point to have an owner on the premises at all times. This ensures that we can handle any situation that may arise. Each partner takes on various tasks. For example, Barb handles the entertainment, Joe takes care of the beer, Bob the liquor, etc.

What is the background of your establishment and why is it named “Pub 36”?
Two of us worked here under the previous owner. We felt the building and location had a lot of potential. One of my partners (Bob) purchased the building at a Sheriff’s sale, outbidding another group. He approached Joe and myself regarding a partnership. (We) presented the opportunity to our wives, and here we are. We went back and forth regarding the name. The ideas were plenty, from naming it after the original owner as a tribute, to recognizing the neighborhood. After all was said and done, we came up with PUB 36. A name that has multiple meanings. The Pub, that’s easy, we are a public house, all are welcome. The number “36”, that’s the last two digits of our Zip Code. It’s our way of telling the neighborhood that this place is for them. It’s also the number of the Fire Company that Bob, Joe, & myself were assigned to when we started this endeavor. If you look around the Pub, you’ll notice some Firefighting memorabilia, but nothing over the top. We wanted to show our passion for our profession, but we kept it subtle.

What do you think sets “36” apart from other bars in the area?
For one, we pride ourselves on our customer service. We have a friendly staff, and our chefs are all professionally trained. Our menu is constantly evolving, from our lunch specials, that start out at $6.95, to a New York Strip steak. Most importantly, our guests expect and receive a clean, safe environment to eat and imbibe. All are welcome, however, we have a ZERO TOLERANCE policy when it comes to behavior that affects another guests enjoyment.
Do you have special events and/or bands at the pub?
Pub 36 supports a lot of local musicians. Monday is our Quizzo night, with monthly themes. Tuesdays, we welcome Fire/EMS, Police, Teachers, Veterans, Nurses & hospital workers with 50% off of their entire bill. Wednesday night is open mic night. Thursday is Karaoke. Friday Happy Hour is the perfect time to check out a local musician. On the weekends we have local bands and our House DJ is Bill Keith. Bill has entertained in NE Philadelphia for decades. Once a month we host a paint night that is instructed by an artist. The Pub has also supported Veterans groups, (Glenn, Bob, and Joe all served our country proudly). Firefighters widows and the Hero Scholarship Fund, Breast Cancer, and many local athletic groups. On April 29th, we start an exciting partnership with Cheesesteaks For Heroes.
You know people love specials. What specials can people expect to find there?
Pub 36 offers drink specials daily. Happy Hour is 4-6 Monday-Thursday and 4-7 on Fridays. Martini Monday, American Honey on Wednesday, Thirsty Thursday with $12 domestic buckets. Bud & Bud Light specials during every Phillies game. Weekend specials, and $2 Miller High Life all day everyday.

Is there anything else that people might be interested to know about the Pub?
Our banquet room is finally finished. We’ve completely gutted and rebuilt the room. From ceiling to floor, new bar, & new bathrooms. We offer affordable packages that will fit any budget. Perfect for Funeral luncheons, Sweet 16’s, Showers, Fundraisers, Etc.
There you have it, citizens of Philadelphia. If you’re looking for a place to let loose or to host a function, check out Pub 36. Give them a call (215-904-5050), check out their Facebook page (Pub 36 Bar & Grill) or just stop in. Tell them One Unified sent you.

 

Sunday Spotlight… The Heart of Gold Festival

Music lovers, this week we bring to you another Sunday Spotlight rooted in our mutual love of music, community and good old-fashioned fun. This week we bring you a two-day local music event that is sure to help you beat these semingly endless winter blahs and help you get into the spirit for the upcoming jam-packed festival season.

Where did the idea for the Heart of Gold Festival come from?
This is our first ever Heart of Gold Festival. The name and concept for the festival came from the lyric “everybody is playing in the heart of gold band” from Scarlet Begonias [by the Grateful Dead]. We know and have worked with all of the bands on the bill in past festivals, and thought it would be great to get a jam together with different members from all the bands for the closing set. Paul Baroli Jr. of Steal Your Face loved the idea when we brought it up to him, and has been working with all of the musicians to put together the band members and set list.

Who is set to perform at this year’s festival?
Mark Diomede & The Juggling Suns Project, Steal Your Face, Mason Porter, Only Footprints, Jersey Pearl, Boy Wonder, Wood Sounds, Mia Johnson, Bobby Beatcut, James Stilianos and The Heart of Gold Band with various artists from the weekend led by Paul Baroli Jr.

Is it family friendly?
Yes this is a family friendly event, sadly it is not pet friendly.

How did you select the location? (The Plateau – 139 Marl Road, Harrisonville, NJ. 08039)
We chose the Plateau for the fest after helping out with a small festival style private party held there last year, knowing the covered stage and dance floor would set the perfect scene for this show.

Is there anything you want to be sure people know if they are thinking about coming out to the festival?
Campers/RVs are welcome, and there will be limited car side camping, and limited carry-in camping in the concert field. Saturday morning yoga, arts, crafts, air brush tattoos, good food, good music, good friends, good times. Jim Stilianos will be the MC for Saturday and have his own mystifying and amazing Vaudeville Freak Show, that is not to be missed.

Where can people go to find out more information about the event?
You can find more information on the Facebook event page… https://www.facebook.com/events/1243576182325599/

By now we know people are ready to get on board! So, where can people get their tickets?
Tickets are available at the pre-sale rate until tonight at midnight, here… http://trustproductions.ticketleap.com/heart-of-gold-band-festival/
Tickets can also be purchased at the gate.

The event is a rain or shine weekend of music and camping taking place this Friday, April 15th beginning at 2:00 PM until Sunday, April 17th at 12:00 AM. Don’t miss out on this one! Guaranteed to be a good time.

“Everybody’s playing in the heart of gold band…”

This Weeks Live and Local

It’s a light week with the holiday, and this is a day early, but there are two great shows to celebrate the new year. Both are taking place on New Year’s Day, so you’re gonna have a tough choice to make. Here they are:

Stems and Seeds: First Friday Curran’s Bensalem 8:00pm. Wear your jammies for the first annual Pajama Party! They’ve got a bunch of new songs for you too! Bring a wrapped gift that you have no use for and trade it for something you might actually use at their Re-Gift Rodeo.

The Dead Leeves: Reale’s on Frankford Avenue in northeast Philadelphia. 7-11pm. Check out these amazing, young rockers (you’ll learn more about them next week) for their headlining show!

Sunday Spotlight… Think Pink Floyd

As music lovers, we often bring local musicians and groups to our Sunday Spotlight. We love sharing all kinds of music with our readers. This week we bring you the national touring Pink Floyd tribute band, Think Pink Floyd. I spoke to Billy Martin from Think Pink Floyd and got some information on this incredible band that delivers a “true replication of a Pink Floyd concert”.

thinkpinkfloyd

Obviously the band plays Pink Floyd music, when was the band formed and what inspired you to start a band in that genre?
Started in 2006. Many young people asked me if I could play Division Bell which was very new at the time. I realized there was a new generation of Pink Floyd fans and started learning more Floyd.

So you were already in a band prior to this
?
We were all in other bands. Martins Law was my band for 15 years.

Apart from Pink Floyd, what were some of your other musical influences?
Led Zeppelin, The (Grateful) Dead, Allmans, (Rolling) Stones, The Beatles. We all love these bands and the music has fine tuned us for years now.

Who’s in the band?
Billy Martin- vocals, guitar
Adam Pierson- drums
Monique Canniere- vocals, violin
Steve Sabile- guitar
Rick OConnell- bass
Heather Haze- vocals, saxophone
Chie Susuki- keys, vocals

What is in the band’s repertoire?
Think Pink Floyd performs music from:
Young Pink Floyd (1967-70)
Meddle – Echos (1971)
Dark Side of the Moon (1973)
Wish You Were Here (1975)
Animals (1977)
