Help Us Help You: A Word From Our Sponsors (Get FREE Flyers Playoff Tickets, $10 off Haircuts, 50% off Gym Services and More)

Crossing Broad is free. And there’s a reason why it’s better than the alternative– because it’s consistently updated and generates enough money to be worked on full-time. Also, dick jokes. But like all media or entertainment outlets (or whatever the hell you want to classify CB as), we have to pay the bills in order to keep it going, growing. I thought I had a going problem, but my doctor said I had a growing problem.

Our generous sponsors and partners keep this ship sailing smoothly, so we’d like to tell you about a couple of new ones, and remind you of the others.

Please welcome:

American Male, a full-service salon for guys. You can drink beer and have your haircut by beautiful young ladies– at the same damn time. And if you mention “Crossing Broad,” you’ll save $10.

You may have noticed messaging at the bottom of select posts. Twice per week, we’ll be handing out free “Quality Grooming Experiences” to the best comments. The QGE, as I’m calling it, includes a haircut, paraffin hand dip, shampoo, mini facial, hot towel, scalp massage, and styling. And then there’s that whole beer thing, too.

American Male has three great locations in Philadelphia, Berwyn, and Reading. Make an appointment by calling 877-636-4247 or go to


Crossingbroadsidead1 is a brand-new – local – daily deal service focused on sports, fitness and health. You can get $200 off a one-year gym membership, 50% off cycling an martial arts classes, 50% off MMA training, and much, much more. Must check out all of the great deals here.

Better yet, when you enter your email address to receive their daily deals, you’ll be entered to win two Flyers playoff tickets courtesy of SportFitDeal, Crossing Broad, and Philly Sports Daily. Do it.

Old favorites:

Drinker’s Philadelphia, of course, is our preferred drinking spot in Philaldelphia. They have three great locations. There’s Drinker’s Tavern in Old City, Drinker’s Pub in Center City, and Drinker’s West in University City. I host a sports-related quizzo at Drinker’s Tavern the second Thursday of every month, and Drinker’s sponsors our weekly CB Six Packs. Location and specials here.

BC Sports routinely has Philly’s most popular athletes in for autograph signings. Ilya Bryzgalov will be signing autographs at the BC Sports in the Manoa Shopping Center on February 19 from 3-5 p.m, and Joe Montana will be signing at the BC Sports in the King of Prussia Mall on January 23 from 6:30-8 p.m. Details and tickets here

Philly Phaithful is Philly’s leader in sports apparel. Currently they have their Knock Knock, Another Win t-shirt, which pays homage to Mac Miller’s anthem. And, of course, other great jams. Get them here.
