Event Details

Who ever thought it would snow in mid-November? Sorry you can’t make it to my talk tonight at the Cherry Hill Library. Since there’s nothing better than a good book on a snowy day, I’m offering a special discount to Cherry Hill Library patrons who wanted to attend the talk tonight but don’t want to go out in the snow. Use promo code CHERRY on www.UniqueEatsPhilly.com for $1 off either of my books - Unique Eats & Eateries of Philadelphia (the stories behind 90 area restaurants including some in South Jersey and tips) or my first book, 100 Things To Do In Philadelphia Before You Die (including history/culture, sports/recreation, music/entertainment, shopping/fashion, food/drink). They make great gifts. If you’re interested in attending another book talk, you’ll find a list of my upcoming talks at www.UniqueEatsPhilly.com. At the talks, I’ll tell some of the sweet & spicy stories behind Philadelphia area restaurants and offer tips like how to get secret menu items, free soup with lunch
Author Irene Levy Baker will present her book Unique Eats and Eateries of Philadelphia: sweet and spicy stories behind 90 not-to-be-missed restaurants in the Philadelphia region. Discover how two chocolatiers got engaged; hear about dinners interrupted by bungled mob hits; restaurants that survived a fire, an earthquake and even Prohibition; a secret restaurant that began in a backyard tent, and more. Learn how to get reservations at trendy restaurants and find your way into secret speakeasies. Find the most sinful desserts, where senior citizens dine with college seniors, where to taste goat, and where you can spot celebrities too. 


Irene Levy Baker, also the author of 100 Things To Do In Philadelphia Before You Die, has spent more than 25 years eating her way through Philadelphia’s restaurants. After working at the Philadelphia Convention & Visitors Bureau, she opened Spotlight Public Relations, a public relations firm specializing in restaurants and hospitality. What she has learned working one-on-one with chefs, restaurant owners, food writers, and diners will satisfy your appetite for a good meal and a great story.

Copies of the book will be available for purchase and signing at the event.
