Friday Scrapples: South Philly shout outs edition

- Frankie Avalon returns to South Philadelphia tomorrow. Concert aside, the Italian Market Festival is guaranteed good times. Gun shops and butcher shops — what more could you ask for? [official site]
- Pat’s and Geno’s are right there, but we want a cheeser from John’s Roast Pork. The James Beard Foundation just named John’s an “American Classic.” If only Snyder Avenue wasn’t torn up all to shit so we could actually get there. [Inky]
- Copa Miami? Hamburger Mary’s failed, so the geniuses behind Copabanana figure a Copa Miami is exactly what will succeed in its place. The "fun" will begin in June. [CityPaper]
- Facedectomy Alert: 10 Rittenhouse is going to have to take down the Rittenhouse Club’s façade only to put it back up again. [Changing Skyline]
- Curt Schilling returns to South Philadelphia this weekend, when the Boston Red Sox hit up the Phillies for a three-game set. But alas, originally slated to pitch Sunday, Schilling won’t be starting a game this weekend. That said, we hope that the Phils’ bullpen got all the cock-smoking out of their system up in Milwaukee, which is Algonquin for “the good land.” [Inky]

We've included a video below for fun. It's proof that rap videos are infinitely better than most other things on television. Kinda like an iPod commercial on crack. And acid.
