Philadelphia, PA: Writer’s Block Rehab

Philly is such a great food city that I don’t explore nearly enough. On a recent trip up, some friends and I were looking for a great happy hour spot and we ended up at Writer’s Block Rehab. Let me tell you – this place is tucked away down an alley and it had the best vibe. It was the cool library that my town never had, with a killer cocktail list and small plates menu. I was in love.

After opening up the menu which was meant to look like a table of contents, we decided to start with an order of the Avocado Toast. It’s light and easy to share with a few people. The whole grain bread was topped with creamy avocado, a hard boiled egg, and sliced cherry tomatoes. Such a great bite to share.

For my drink choice, I started off with a vodka drink and ordered the Gimlet Comes Home. It was a classic combination of vodka, lime, cucumber, and mint but it was so refreshing in the summer heat.

One of my friends opted to order the Greyhound which was a mix of grapefruit vodka, prosecco, and grapefruit. I’m a sucker for anything grapefruit and the prosecco added a nice sparkling touch. This was another great drink.



The final drink we tried was a frozen cocktail called My Way or the Highway. This drink is customizable and we went with vodka with a mango flavor. I don’t normally love slushies, but this was a great drink. It was so refreshing and I found myself dreaming about it in the warm days that followed.
