PROFILE: Philly Luncher “Donal”

Though we have been lacking volunteers lately, on certain Tuesdays we turn over the site to a different lunch’er for his or her recommendations for the best lunch in Philadelphia. This week it’s Donal, looking for places where you can have your lunch and drink it too.
