Grand opening Saturday: JT’s Philadelphia House

By Shannon McDonald

Tomorrow is the grand opening of JT’s Philadelphia House, a new restaurant at 7312 Castor Ave. off Cottman.

The day begins at 1 p.m., and the live music starts at 7 p.m. with Sue Teears Trio and Charlie Gracie. There’s no cover in honor of the grand opening, so use the extra money to sample some things from the pretty varied menu and let us know what’s good. We’re especially interested in the funnel cake.

Plus, don’t miss the meet and greet with members of The Orlons, one of Philly’s own hit music groups. At the very least, stop in for a break from the heat.
