In case you don’t already know what you’re doing next Saturday, here’s something to add to your calendar: Greensgrow Farms is throwing a shrimp boil. It’s a benefit event for the Greensgrow Community Kitchen (which is a social entrepreneurship project which does everything from acting as a classroom and a licensed kitchen for food truck owners and small food entrepreneurs, to serving as the place where Greensgrow assembles all its prepared food and an educational venture helping people “navigate the labyrinth of city certifications and licenses”), so right from the start you can feel good about attending. But more important, it’s also gonna be a sweet party–a straight up low country shrimp boil with lots of food, popsicles from Little Pop Shop, beer from Philadelphia Brewing Company, and a Zydeco dance party on the side.
Chefs Justin Swain from Rex 1516 and Carolynn Angle from Standard Tap will be handling the grub. A few of the Community Kitchen tenants will be catering a VIP happy hour. And lots of folks from the restaurant community are donating food or raffle prizes to make the whole thing possible.
The details are thus: August 16, from 5pm-9pm, at 2501 East Cumberland Street. Tickets are $40 (and come with free dance lessons), $60 if you want to get in on the VIP action. Check out the link below to get your tickets.
