Philadelphia Dining Deals and Events, April 1-7

Yes, it's April Fools Day and the day after Easter, but it’s also the last night of Passover. London Grill is seeing off the holiday in meaty fashion with Meatball Monday. Stop into the Fairmount tavern to try pickled salmon meatballs; veal meatballs with raisins and pine nuts in tomato sauce; and lamb meatballs with mint - it’s just $6 for all three (215-978-4545).

Williams Brothers Brewery owner Bruce Williams is in town, having traveled across the pond from Scotland to introduce his brews to Philadelphia. He’ll be chatting all things Scottish and beer starting at 7 PM at Devil’s Den in South Philly, which will offer assorted Williams Brothers beers on taps and in firkin. The accent is sure to be as beguiling as the brews (215-339-0855).

Harvest Seasonal Grill has come up with a tasty dish that will help you shed extra winter pounds in anticipation of shorts and spring. The tofu stuffed artichokes are loaded with sundried tomatoes, basil, Asiago cheese, panko, lemon aioli and quinoa salad, ring in at just 420 calories, and can be yours at either  the West Philly or Glen Mills location for $13 (215-662-1100 and 610-358-1005).

Alex Boonphaya is commemorating the Thai New Year with a series of chef collaboration dinners. The first, with George Sabatino, was last week, and this week it’s chef Jennifer Choplin of SoWe who’ll be joining him at Circles Thai in Northern Liberties. The six-course feast runs $50 $35 per person (the price just dropped, due to Choplin's "excellent sourcing"), and reservations are available (267-687-1309).

For the April edition of First Friday at Drink Philly HQ in Old City, both Street Food Philly and Spot Gourmet Burgers will be offering free bites from 5-9 PM. Pair them with drinks from Susquehanna Brewing and check out some local art; all you need for entrance is an RSVP (here).

It’s been three years since Le Viet fancied up Vietnamese options in South Philly, and to celebrate the anniversary, the restaurant is selling bowls of house and chicken pho for just $3.33 each during lunch from 11 AM-3 PM. There’s a limited supply, so maybe roll in for the perfect hangover cure (215-463-1570).

One of the first Philadelphia SideTour experiences takes place from 1:30-3 PM, and spots are still available. David Suro-PiƱera will lead a discussion of agave beverages at his Locust Street Mexican, Tequilas. Tickets are $65 per person and include the learning and the drinks (tickets here).
