Tonight at 7 p.m., Reading Terminal Market is kicking off their “Movies at the Market” series. Once a month, anyone looking to watch a free flick can head over to the market to do just that. The film of choice tonight is “Chef,” a comedy/drama about a chef who quits his job at a prestigious LA restaurant and decides to open a food truck with his ex-wife, son, and best friend.
It’s a better movie than the description makes it sound.
UPDATE: And now Reading Terminal Market has announced that it, too, is going to be closed on Saturday, January 23 because of the blizzard. Which is completely unsurprising.
So here’s some shitty news for everyone. You know how we’ve been writing about Reading Terminal Market’s ScrappleFest that was supposed to be coming up this weekend?
Yeah, well it's been canceled. Because of the storm that's scheduled to hit the city this weekend.
The Market itself is going to remain open, but if you want to stuff yourself with scrapple (in order to develop that thick coat of insulating fat which will be necessary for surviving this allegedly epic snowstorm), now you're just going to have to do it at home.
UPDATE: ScrappleFest has been canceled.
This Saturday, January 23rd, scrapple lovers will unite at Reading Terminal Market to celebrate their favorite Pennsylvania Dutch breakfast food.
Starting at 10 a.m., five brands, Leidy's, Habbersett, Godshall's, Frank's, and Vegan Commissary will be serving free samples of their scrapple for the public to enjoy. At 2:30 p.m., the market will hold a contest for the most creative scrapple dish made by merchants. The contest will be judged by Paul Steinke, former General Manager of Reading Terminal Market, award-winning journalist Rick Nichols, and Laura Burkhardt, publisher of Where Magazine.
The fest goes until 4 p.m., but it's easy to find yourself at the market longer than planned, especially if one of the bakeries reel you in for a post-scrapple dessert. Here's hoping the upcoming storm doesn't get in the way...
