South Philly Tap Room is a sure bet for booze, especially with this Saturday's Wheat Beer Fest, a blast of over 30 wheat beers at $3 a pop from 2-8pm. The kitchen, whether you're for or against the new chef, keeps trying. The latest menu debuted last Monday, and if you can get past the lion appetizer, there is a slew of veggie possibilities. Most times, I leave SPTR not exactly impressed, but it's getting there. The Vegetarian Sloppy Joe, made with seitan and mushrooms on potato rolls, is mighty fine, even if they're probably Martin's potato hot dog buns (surprisingly high in fiber). If you're particularly fond of wheat, they have funnel cake with wheat beer batter. If not, maybe they'll win you over wit their weißbiers.
