Billing itself as a guide to experiencing Philly like a local, Uwishunu is an in-the-know blog extension of the city's more comprehensive visitor site. Written by a diverse staff with different interests, it lives up to its local point of view. Visit Philly is a comprehensive guide to events throughout the year; it also includes new entries in Philly dining, attractions, and shopping.
For events listings and more local blogging, visit Philadelphia magazine’s website, where staffers hold forth on everything from street style to restaurants to shopping. Philly.com, the online home of the Philadelphia Inquirer and Philadelphia Daily News, covers many of these same topics, as well.
Philly has more than its fair share of food blogs, which just shows you how important the dining scene is to Philadelphians. Foobooz (foobooz.com), which is part of Philadelphia magazine, mixes news of restaurant openings and closings with food-industry gossip and restaurant reviews. It also acts as a clearinghouse for other online reviews. Eater (philly.eater.com) has a very active Philly branch, as does Zagat (zagat.com/philadelphia). Those who pride themselves on being in the know about the restaurant scene check out "Table Talk" by Michael Klein in the Philadelphia Inquirer, as well as Klein’s blog, The Insider (philly.com/theinsider).
