Created by Arthur Etchells, founder of Foobooz and fan of all things Philadelphia.

Philadelphia’s hospitality industry has been decimated by Covid-19. And as the closings mount (both permanent and hopefully temporary), it feels important to chronicle the pain.

Philadelphia’s bars and restaurants are owned and staffed by extremely hard working and passionate people. I hope this site shines a light on their struggles, their resourcefulness and offering a memorial, they must not be forgotten.
