Dine Out For Life in Philly


Once a year, thousands of restaurants across the nation, including dozens near your Edgewater apartment, join forces in the fight against HIV/AIDS.

Dining Out for Life has been raising funds for HIV/AIDS causes for decades, and 2018 is set to be the biggest and best year of the fundraiser. On April 19, more than 175 local eateries will donate a third of their proceeds to the effort, which will then be distributed directly to local residents affected by the disease as well as to organizations that work to combat the epidemic. While the event raises funds and awareness for a serious cause, it’s also designed to encourage diners to enjoy a fun night out, with many venues featuring entertainment, raffles and specials.

Diners can find something to suit any taste at Dining Out for Life, as restaurants representing a range of flavors, and across varying price points, are participating. Even among eateries near your Edgewater apartment, you can find lots of options, such as:

Continental Midtown: The atmosphere is almost as exciting as the menu at Continental Midtown, six blocks from your Edgewater apartment. A rooftop bar, eye-popping two-story atrium and cocoon-like chairs that are suspended from the ceiling are just a few of the sights to enjoy while you chow down on dinner, which is heavy with creative seafood-based dishes.

El Rey: Modern Mexican is served up at this cozy eatery, six blocks from your Edgewater apartment. From ceviche to chilaquiles and everything in between, El Rey offers an authentic taste of Mexico—complete with margaritas!

Harp & Crown: About one mile from your Edgewater apartment, Harp & Crown is a hub for after-work entertainment. The restaurant offers much more than food, with a built-in bowling alley, expansive bar and a beautiful backdrop of a glass-fronted façade and two-story ceilings.

Bellini Grill: This popular BYOB is located about one mile from your Edgewater apartment, and specializes in traditional Italian favorites. If you need extra incentive, Bellini Grill is participating in 20% Off Tuesdays, where select DOFL restaurants will give diners a gift card that enables them to take 20% off all of their future Tuesday orders for the rest of the year.
