- First Friday on Frankford Ave Every First Friday of the month
Maria Prikhodko, Temple University ’23 | @maria_prikA day in Fishtown always starts with a visit to ReAnimator Coffee, just a short walk off Frankford Avenue. You can pop into one of the many antique stores, like Jinxed, and be sure to stop by Vestige, too—it’s one of my favorites for vintage clothing!
What I love most about this neighborhood is the vibrant variety of food. I am a big food lover, and Fishtown has something to satisfy every craving! Cheu Fishtown is an authentic Japanese restaurant, specializing in flavorful and oh-so-delicious ramen, while their sister restaurant, NUNU, serves an array of colorful sushi next door.
One of the must-do items in this area is North Bowl. It’s a retro-style bowling alley with pool tables and an arcade. Fishtown also participates in First Friday, so a lot of galleries and studios open their doors free of charge the first Friday of every month!
