The Blue Duck from two years ago, back when it was a “sandwich company.”
Northeast Philadelphia’s Blue Duck is turning two and celebrating with a couple days worth of events. On Sunday, October 2nd, owners Kris Serviss, Joe Callahan and general manager Nick Cammarota are hosting their second annual Blue Duck Block Party. Last year there was brunch food, games, prizes, live music, a DJ and even a giant blue duck. This year, they’re going to repeat the party but you know, bigger and better.
