PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA - OCTOBER 15: Members of the Philadelphia Phillies celebrate in the locker room after defeating the Atlanta Braves to win the National League Division Series at Citizens Bank Park on October 15, 2022 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.

The best place to watch Phillies playoffs is Citizens Bank Park, because of course it is!

But those tickets are almost impossible to get!

The Phillies put a limited number of tickets on sale for Friday’s first home game of the NLCS.   The tickets went on sale at 10am this morning (10/17/22) and sold out in minutes.   We have gone playoff crazy!  

Maybe you were one of the lucky ones to purchase tickets for:

  • NLCS Game 3- Friday, 10/21, 7:37pm
  • NLCS Game4 – Saturday, 10/22, 7:45pm
  • NLCS Game 5 – Sunday, 10/23, 2:37pm (if necessary)

So it looks like the three home games of the NLCS are SOLD OUT!

If you can’t go to any of these games I would suggest you don’t watch the games at home.   I know home is comfortable and you probably have a nice supply of beverages and snacks, plus a huge screen TV with surround sound in your “mancave” or “she shed”.   And staying at home to watch the game does not really cost anything and is safer.   But is it really as much fun without a large group of fellow Phillies fans?

Until this past weekend, I had forgotten the best place to watch Phillies playoffs is in a BAR!   (Maybe because the Phillies were not in the playoffs in a decade.)

And then with Covid and the months that followed, we just. stayed. home.  Many still avoid crowded settings.  It took ALL our fun away.

But after this weekend, I feel WE ARE BACK!

What a positive-upbeat-united feeling it was to watch this past weekends games at Miller’s at Granite Run Friday night and then the Chadds Ford Tavern when the Phillies won the NLDS!The Best Place To Watch Phillies Playoffs

So, get out to your favorite watering hole early, and grab a couple seats at the BAR!

Let’s GO!

New Foods Coming To Philly Stadiums

The Phillies are in the playoffs and the Flyers are kicking off their season this week. That means new foods coming to Philly Stadiums!

The Phillies return for their first home playoff game in over a decade this Friday and fans will be able to enjoy some amazing new grub at Citizens Bank Park.

The Flyers kick off their season this week with a new waffle cone you can see down below!

  • Chickie’s & Pete’s Crabby Sweets

    Seasoned sweet potato fries served with sides of warm cinnamon-maple sauce and cheese sauce according to a press release. These will be available at Citizen’s Bank Park throughout the playoffs. A twist on a Philly staple!

  • Phillies Gobbler

    In-house carved turkey, homemade stuffing, and cranberry sage aioli on an Amoroso long roll with a side of turkey gravy according to the Philadelphia Business Journal. Be thankful inside the ballpark. This might be hard to eat at your seat so you may need to bite the sandwich and sip on the gravy.

  • S’more Milkshake

    Richman’s vanilla soft serve hand-spun with chocolate syrup, graham crackers, and marshmallow topping. A boardwalk classic comes to the Phillies homebase. Lets hope the weather is a little warmer if you are enjoying this treat.

  • CHEETOS® ‘n’ Waffle

    CHEETOS FLAMIN’ HOT® breaded chicken tenders wrapped in a buttermilk bubble waffle and topped with buttermilk ranch dressing. This item will be new for Flyers and Sixers home games this upcoming season according to a press release. 

  • Za’atar Cauliflower Cheesesteak

    The Sixers and Flyers will give fans a plant base option this season with this new item: the Za’atar spiced cauliflower steak topped with caramelized and harissa cheese wiz.


    Delaware's Favorite Full Size Candy Bars

    Delaware’s favorite full size candy bars are what kids and kids at heart want for Halloween!

    I know that that “fun size” candy bars are very economical, but the way I see it (at least in my neighborhood) there are not as many trick or treaters over the past few years.

    My wife and I have typically gone the “fun size” route and buy a variety of candy bars. And there are always leftovers that generally last until Thanksgiving! We eat ’em up! Yum!

    But this year and I am reconsidering. I want to be more my late neighbor Al!

    Al had an adventurous life to say the least! He was an aviator in World War II and when he retuned from from the war, he worked for Sun Oil Company.

    We met Al after he retired. In the morning my wife and her friends would walk our dogs and always stop by Al’s house for a visit. He was very charming with the ladies and would over feed the dogs with treats.

    On weekends when I would walk the dog, I would stop by Al’s house. Our pup Grace got plenty of treats for sure, and Al loved her. Al also loved scotch! So while Grace munched away, he would pour me a glass of Macallan 12 Year Scotch. Al would talk of his adventures in the war and his travels with Sun Oil Company to explore potential oil fields in the Arab world. One glass would turn into 3. Grace would return home sluggish from all the treats. I would return home somewhat “comfortable”.

    Al loved Halloween! He always had the most kids because he only handed out full size candy bars! Not just one. He would fill up paper bags with all time favorite full size candy bars!

    So when Halloween rolls around, I take the time to remember Al and his dog treats, the conversation, the friendship, the scotch and Delaware’s favorite full size candy bars!
