The Ultimate Local’s Guide to Philly || Gatekeepers

  • Published on:  12/21/2018
  • Welcome to the city of cheesesteaks (and brotherly love) where local radio host and Philly native Natalie Egenolf will be showing us the ropes. Check some ‘firsts’ off your list as we visit the country’s first Axe throwing bar, first pizza museum, the spot where your favorite dive bar order originated and a few other historic landmarks.

    In every city there’s someone who’s connected, who knows where to go on a slow Monday night and can get a table anywhere they want on a Friday - in every city there’s a Gatekeeper. In this Thrillist travel show, we’re sending our host across the country to meet up with these Gatekeepers and experience first hand everything you should make sure to do/eat/drink, one city at a time.
