Chestnut Hill Happenings

Last night we were at the First Pour for the Iron Hill Chestnut Hill location. It’s the first Philadelphia location for the ten location strong Iron Hill chain. In attendance was new 8th District city councilperson Cindy Bass who remarked that pouring the beer was her first official duty in council. The brew pub will employ 150 and is the fifth new restaurant in Chestnut Hill in the past year. Chestnut Hill residents were pouring in when the doors officially opened at 5 p.m. We would have taken more photos, but if you’ve been in one Iron Hill, you know what this one looks like.

Also on the Hill, Night Kitchen Bakery prepared the cake pictured below for Mayor Nutter’s inauguration ball earlier this week.

    Nice effort. I know I am usually exhausted after taking 1 picture let alone 2. A lot of your readers may not have been in an Iron Hill. Maybe you should get Sheehan to take some photos when he is not writing these stellar entries.
