Brunch by day, blues by night

The Twisted Tail, Philadelphia’s Southern-inspired bourbon house and juke joint, celebrates Easter with a decadent brunch and a rollicking evening of blues.

 

The Easter brunch menu features two special offerings: pan-seared banana French toast with foie gras, finished with a housemade cinnamon whiskey syrup and grilled thick sliced ham with shelled peas, spring onion biscuits and red-eye gravy.

The Twisted Tail has also added new brunch items, including praline French toast with whipped mascarpone, pecans and maple syrup; catfish sandwich with tartar sauce, pear slaw and arugula on a baguette; brisket hash with smoked tomato jam and poached eggs; and egg cassoulet with black eyed peas, roasted tomatoes and grilled baguette. The brunch menu may be found here.

 


 

Things take a shift from 5 to 10 p.m., when you can channel your inner Muddy Waters, B.B. King, or Etta James upstairs in the Juke Joint. Mikey Junior & Friends invite you to grab a guitar off the wall, take the mic and join an all-ages blues jam. Whether you fancy yourself a performer with a yearning for the spotlight or just enjoy yodeling in the shower, this weekly blues jam is a guaranteed good time.

The Juke Joint hosts a spirited open blues jam every Sunday. More information on The Tail’s Juke Joint as well as the live music calendar may be found at: http://www.thetwistedtail.com/live-music/.

 

Make this Easter a yummy and entertaining one! The Twisted Tail is located in the heart of Headhouse Square at 509 South 2nd Street in Philadelphia.
