Coca Cola made with cane sugar

La Lupe in the Italian Market sells Coca Cola made with cane sugar. And it comes in retro glass bottles.

Pub type food in Philly

Totally forgot....Plough & the Stars in Old City. About as Irish pub-ish you can get. Nice beer selection and kid friendly during lunch....not so much on a Friday/Saturday night.

Pub type food in Philly

Dark Horse Pub on 2nd near South Street comes to mind. Fairly good beer selection and English pub type food. Shepherds pie is delicious. Royal Tavern on East Passyunk has a really good menu and daily specials.

good taverna in Rethymno?

Try Kyria Maria. I can not even begin to explain to you how to find it but I believe it is listed in several guidebooks. The setting is nice with low lights hanging from the grapevine covered overhead trellis. The service is great and the food is all homemade, of course. Mostly typical Greek fare on the menu but they have nightly specials that are a little more inspired. It's was very difficult for us to find decent (re: non-touristy) restaurants in most of Greece but this one really stood out. If you get out to some of the smaller villages of Crete you will easily find authentic tavernas that do not cater to tourists. Hope this helps and have fun!

Philadelphia Bachelor Party Dinner Suggestion?

My husband had his 30th B-day party at Eulogy Belgian Tavern in Old City and I think it would be a great place for a bachelor party dinner. They have mussels, burgers, and typical belgian fare. Everything I've had there has been great. They have one of the best beer menus as well. Plus you'll be right in Old City which will be handy when you're ready to get your drink on. They do not take reservations for large parties but I would try to get them to hold the upstairs back room for you (the decor in this room is pretty awesome). They will usually try to hold it for you.

Greek/Middle-Eastern Groceries in Philadelphia?

The closest to you would be Bitar's on the corner of 10th and Federal. While you're there, head over to Claudio's in the Italian Market for the best parma prosciutto.
