THE SHUTTER — In major-bummer news, Graduate Hospital staple Resurrection Ale House announced a pending sale this week, with plans to shut down in September. The new owners intend to take over without literally shutting the doors, luckily, but will be launching their own concept, name, and menu in the space. And in a blow to Rittenhouse, this is the final weekend to pay a visit to 32-year-old Tangier.

COMING ATTRACTIONS — Peek inside some buzzy new spots opening soon: First up, ReAnimator Coffee's second, much larger cafe (and production facility) could open its doors in Kensington as soon as next week. We've also gotfresh photos and updates on Dizengoff and Abe Fisher (from the Zahav/Federal Donuts team), plus renderings for Girard, a forthcoming no-tipping-allowed spot in Fishtown.
