Your summer nights used to consist of bonfires, beach bashes and bros. Now it’s fall and you’ve reserved a permanent spot on the couch with a six pack and your dog. That’s just as good, right?

Don’t let your social life die due to a case of the fall blues. While you might have to wait until next summer to bring back the awesome beach parties, you can still have a fun fall night out with friends instead of binge watching Orange Is the New Black (no judgment here).

Feel free to let your inner beast out at Beast and Ale, Philly’s newest burger joint. Not only do they have awesome eats like buttermilk fried chicken, fried bologna sandwiches and the Beast Burger, but there’s eight different taps and one hand pump where you can try different local and artisanal craft brews and the here-to-stay Beast Brew, which can’t be beaten at $3 a pint.

Besides having awesome food, Beast and Ale has an awesome inside that will make you want to swing from the (antler) chandelier. Designed to look like a lodge, there’s a downstairs bar, an upstairs dining room and a mezzanine complete with a gas fireplace, gold painted moose, and life-size bear.

Go ahead and enjoy fall; your Netflix will still be there when you get home.
