Today’s Philly 101 video features a truly iconic Philadelphian: Pete Ciarrocchi, the “Pete” of Chickie’s and Pete’s, named the best sports bar in all of North America by ESPN last August.
And it’s great timing to feature someone so closely associated with Philadelphia sports, given the Phillies’ Opening Night at Citizens Bank Park this evening plus the Flyers’ Game 1 of the NHL Playoffs.
Watch the clip above to meet Pete, see inside the South Philly flagship location of Chickie’s and Pete’s and learn a fun fact about the man behind the crab fries.
