Back on National Beer Day, we celebrated Philly’s many breweries (click here to check out some of our favorite breweries), but that was for a national “holiday”—now, it’s Philly’s time to shine on a hyperlocal level in its own unique celebration of suds.  Philly Beer Week’s purpose?  Well, according to the nonprofit’s website, it “is to promote Philadelphia's diverse beer community both through our ten-day festival and throughout the year with our calendar of events and through social media promotion.”  Spread out over 10 days, we are sure you’ll find a Philly Beer Week event to fit your schedule.  Here are three events going on this weekend.

Anthony Wayne TheaterOne of the anchors of the Wayne commercial district, the Anthony Wayne Theater is one of a very few surviving examples of what was once a staple in neighborhoods across America: the local movie palace.

After a day of shopping in Wayne, you probably could use a good meal. Or maybe you have a date in mind with dinner and a movie. Either way, the western Main Line's Main Street has you covered.

Let's start with the "good meal" or "dinner" part. Whether it's farm-to-table or just a table you're looking for, you'll find it here. Wayne's standout eateries include:

White Dog Cafe, 200 W. Lancaster Ave., 610-225-3700
Founded by activist Judy Wicks in 1983, the White Dog Cafe was one of America's pioneering "farm-to-table" restaurants. Its menu

The Radnor HotelThe Radnor Hotel, home to a classic American restaurant and a cabaret, is one of several businesses in neighboring Radnor that give their address as St. Davids. 

Sr. Davids' business district is all business: offices and a bank branch define it.

But thanks to the blurring of lines in this part of Radnor Township, many of the restaurants and shops in neighboring Radnor give their address as St. Davids.

Part of that is due to the presence of the St. Davids Square shopping center, refashioned from a former B. Altman & Co. department store. This center boasts a Giant supermarket and several big-box retailers, including HomeGoods, Bed Bath & Beyond, T.J. Maxx and the only Micro Center location in the Philadelphia area.

St Davids SquareSt. Davids Square, home to a supermarket, several big-box retailers and a smattering of smaller shops, is fhe principal shopping center in Radnor Across the street are most of the community's best restaurants.

Like Villanova just to its east, Radnor is a primarily residential community, but it does have a commercial district, one that's larger and more substantial than Villanova's. In contrast to the largely railroad-oriented business districts of the Main Line, though, Radnor's commercial center makes the most of its proximity to the Blue Route, I-476.

On the north side of Lancaster Avenue just west of the Blue Route interchange is a suburban office campus that includes the Radnor Financial Center and houses The Radnor Hotel, the only

King of Prussia shopping mallGuides aimed at Villanova University students often list this destination as the best shopping in the area. In truth, the King of Prussia mall is the region's premier shopping destination. Villanova itself has no shopping to speak of, and only a small commercial district with eateries catering to students, but it's easy to find both luxury retail and great Main Streets within minutes of Villanova.

In Villanova, the best shopping is all around it.

Villanova itself has no real commercial district to speak of, which seems to be just fine by the residents.  It's not all that difficult to get in the car, catch a train or bus, or hop on one's bike to head to shopping and restaurants in nearby Rosemont, St. Davids, Bryn Mawr and Wayne.

Gullifty'sSmall plates or large, dining al fresco or craft beers at the bar, Gullifty's in Rosemont Square has been pleasing Main Line diners since 1975.

Rosemont may not have the high-profile dining spots found in places like Ardmore, Bala-Cynwyd and Wayne, but it does have a wide menu of dining choices to satisfy many tastes, plus an entertainment venue with a difference.

The mainstay of Rosemont's dining scene is Gullifty's in Rosemont Square (1149 W. Lancaster Ave.; 610-525-1851), a Main Line institution since 1975. Gullifty's was one of the pioneering casual family-friendly restaurants back when it opened, and it remains popular to this day, in part because it keeps up with new developments and food trends. In 1997, it was an early adopter of craft

Lancaster Avenue, Bryn Mawr, showing BMFIWilliam Harold Lee designed a slew of movie palaces in the 1920s that sought to bring big-city glamour to Philly's suburban Main Streets. One of the few that survive, and possibly the only one that's still a theater, is the Seville (1926), reborn as the Bryn Mawr Film Institute, an anchor of Bryn Mawr's lively business district.

So you've been looking for a movie theater right on Lancaster Avenue itself? Your quest is finally over.

While Bala and Narberth both have theaters, the Bryn Mawr Film Institute is the first Main Line movie theater to be located on the Main Line's main drag, at least as you head west from Philadelphia. The four-screen theater complex represents the successful conclusion of a decade-long campaign to rescue and preserve one of

Love sushi? You'll find none better on the Main Line than that at Mikado Thai Pepper in Ardmore, the place to go when you want Japanese and your dining companions crave Thai.

Ardmore is clearly the Main Line's downtown, with only Wayne in Radnor Township rivaling it as a nexus of shopping, dining and entertainment activity. And much as in other reviving suburban downtowns, restaurants play a big role in bringing locals and visitors alike to its Main Street, in this case Lancaster Avenue. Our "Living on the Main Line" post on Ardmore's dining and enertainment scene featured a great brewery/cafe, an intimate sushi bar, a chain New American establishment and a fresh-and-local BYOB; we recently came across some more fine dining finds in Ardmore courtesy

Looking for great shopping or a place to dine in Haverford? You'll end up here.

Like most Main Line communities not named Ardmore, Bala Cynwyd or Wayne, Haverford is not known for its bustling shopping district. But there is good shopping to be found along Lancaster Avenue in Haverford, along with one outstanding restaurant.

Haverford's center for shopping is the shopping center known as Haverford Square, nestled in between the train station and Lancaster Avenue. A classic small outdoor mall, Haverford Square features 13 establishments that offer unique and top-quality merchandise.

Several of the businesses in Haverford Square are outposts of well-known Philadelphia retailers such as the Hope Chest lingerie boutique and Sherman Brothers men's
