Home to dozens of good bars, indie boutiques, and quality restaurants, 30th Street is the going-out destination of choice for uptowners any day of the week. But the best time to see the street in action is on the 30th day of the month, during a dine-around event called 30th on 30th. To encourage people to tapas-crawl the length of the strip, many 30th Street restaurants and bars offer small plates and drinks for a few bucks apiece. You might score a beef cheek slider with smoked tomato jam at comfort-food spot Urban Solace or a pint of 30th Street Pale Ale from Toronado. The precise hours that specific specials are offered vary from place to place, but it’s a safe bet that you’ll find some good action from about 5 or 6 p.m. until the food runs out.
