See This Weekend’s Street Closures For Outdoor Dining In Philly

PHILADELPHIA — Philadelphia officials announced numerous streets are closing this weekend to provide outdoor dining options in the neighborhood.

In June, the city launched four new options — sidewalk cafés, streeteries, temporary use of private lots for dining, and temporary street closures — for restaurants to operate outdoor dining in order to earn much needed revenue.

These new options aim to support businesses during the city’s green phase of reopening from the COVID-19 pandemic and are allowed through an application process.
