Rittenhouse Row’s Spring Festival Preview Party Is Coming Up

Rittenhouse Row Spring Festival

On May 4, from 7-9:30pm, the folks behind the Rittenhouse Row Spring Festival will be throwing their annual Preview Party at the Westin Hotel ballroom.

There’s going to be food, there’s going to be booze, there’ll be a silent auction and samples and, I don’t know… Fashion-y things (because it’s Rittenhouse, so there kinda has to be, right?). But the food and the booze is what we care about here, so let’s focus on that, shall we?

Last minute prep work at Independence Beer Garden

The first two beer gardens of the season open this weekend. Today, Michael Schulson’s Independence Beer Garden softly opens at 6th and Market and tomorrow marks 8th anniversary and beer garden opening at Memphis Taproom.

Memphis is celebrating inside with some great beers from their cellar plus some of the newest beers in the state. The bar will be pouring four beers from Highway Manor Brewing of Camp Hill, PA. The beers are all all open fermented and barrel aged. The beers will be Mr. Blueberry, Taste My Place, Mr. Strawberry, and Sayjohn Saison.  There will also be bottles on hand for takeout, with labels illustrated by Memphis Taproom’s own Keith Warren Greiman.

Sneak Preview: Here’s What You’ll Be Eating And Drinking At This Year’s “Flavors Of The Avenue”


Okay, so here’s the deal: Flavors Of The Avenue–the big East Passyunk food festival that more or less kicks off the food festival season in Philly–is happening on Sunday, April 24, from noon to 4pm. VIP tickets are already sold out, but there are a handful of general admission tickets still available for those who are fast enough to grab them. They’ll run you $50, but essentially give you run of the food tent and bars (which, just so you know, will be pouring Troegs and Victory beers, mixing Sailor Jerry cocktails, margaritas, and pouring wine), letting you stuff yourself until you can’t hold any more and generally behaving like the shameless glutton you really are. Which, obviously, is a very good thing because I’d pretty much be out of a job if gluttony weren’t still the most awesome of sins.

Anyway, $50 might seem like a lot of coin for a street festival, but check it out. We now have the full list of all the food that’s going to be under the tent during Flavors. Plus, there’s also a second list of cocktail and drink specials that will be happening all weekend leading up to the event.

If this list doesn’t convince you to pull those fat pants out of the closet then nothing will.

Check it out…
