When the Eagles are in the playoffs, we suddenly want to absorb green things that should never be green. What may sound totally unappetizing and disturbing deserves a moment of emerald color. Namely, green beer and green sausage.

Just like the rest of us, Philly bakeries, restaurants, and bars are all in Eagles playoffs. So if you’re looking for a way to rock your clock party or just celebrate with some sweets dyed green, consider these specials.

Eagles Cakes, Eagles Cakes, Eagles Cannoli. The popular Isgro’s restaurant in South Philly has everything imaginable in vultures.

If you’d rather be an early bird, go for the cannoli chip and dip platter (with dip dyed green, of course). 1009 Christian Street, South Philly.

When this South Philly bakery introduced this green-dyed wrap of Dietz & Watson’s viral bird dogs (more on those later), interest and demand were higher than expected.

“Bird Dogs” are eagle-style hot dogs served in green buns and topped with a long hot dog, provolone, and fried onions. You can follow their schedule online or on Instagram for more impromptu visits from the truck. (Which looks a bit like a hot dog fairy on wheels.) Here’s the scoop: On Thursday, January 26, you can catch them at the Rittenhouse Square Rally from noon to 3 p.m., then South Square Market (2221 South Street) from 4 to 6 p.m. They’ll also be roaming the stadium grounds on Sundays from noon to 3 p.m. for all the hungry runners. multiple places; Follow on Instagram.

If you’re looking to catch the game somewhere beside your couch, you could do worse than one of the oldest bars in Philly. To beat the Eagles, McGillin goes all out with green beer. (This is only the second time in 163 years that they’ve served green beer other than St. Patrick’s Day, they told us. The other time was 2018, and we all know how that went.) They will also have additional food and drink specials for the game, including an “Iggle-tini”.1310 Drury Street, Midtown Village.

Another place personally worth a visit: Tinsel Takes Flight. This Tinsel-themed iteration of the Eagles is drenched in green, with memorabilia, art installations, murals, photos galore, and themed drinks like “Swole Batman” and “Hurts So Good.” It’s open now, and it’ll continue for the rest of the season… however long that lasts. Keep in mind: this is probably best for a pre-game visit rather than a place to watch the game; While there are TVs there are no seats. 116 South 12th Street, Midtown Village.
