The Daily Shortlist July 26
The Squidling Bros. Circus Sideshow is an international touring act that performs around the world, bringing their shocking stunts and daredevil attitude with them. Having worked with Ripley’s Believe It Or Not! In Times Square and the Coney IslandBoardwalk for a number of years, “Matterz Squidling The Impenetrable Music Man” and “Jelly Boy The Clown Squidling” are no strangers to shocking their audiences. The real life brothers and their crew put a rock ‘n roll, dare-devilish spin on the classic American sideshow that accompanied traveling circuses in early 20th Century. Every year they also host “Carnivolution,” a wild underground party in their hometown of Philadelphia. Hormone and antibiotic free, Better Burger focuses on serving a fresh and healthier alternative to the grease burger you can get anywhere. With a tiled floor that lights up, other than that, Passerby is a non-descript bar, which is why it’s a place artists flock to for a cocktail without being disturbed. While not the best named coffee shop, ’sNice is a nice and quiet coffee house offering vegetarian sandwiches and baked goods, while being a large enough space to spread your legs out and not worry about stealing another seat from someone.
