This evening, from 9 p.m. to midnight, Lemon Hill is bringing in some bartending talent for a good cause. Phoebe Esmon and Christian Gaal of Emmanuelle, Michael Treffehn of Franklin Mortgage & Investment Co. and Vince Stipo of Vernick Food & Drink and Lemon Hill’s Michelle Curtis will be pouring cocktails featuring Beefeater or Plymouth gin. The cocktails will be available for $8 and half of the proceeds will go to support Share Our Strength’s No Kid Hungry campaign.
The “Cocktails for a Cause” tour will continue with three additional stops this spring.
UPDATE: Just got word that tonight’s Big Lebowski movie night at the Franklin has been postponed. No new date set yet, but we’ll let you know as soon as something gets worked out.
Really, the only question is how the Franklin got through so many movie nights without doing The Big Lebowski.
But anyway, that cinematic travesty has now been remedied with a pair of movie-themed cocktail nights which will see the Franklin's Mike Treffehn and Phoebe Esmon from Emmanuelle sharing their respective bars on two different nights for two different (but equally awesome) theme nights.
You already know that the first one will be The Big Lebowski, but what about the second one?
Emmanuelle, the Northern Liberties bar that features the cocktails of Phoebe Esmon and Christian Gaal, was named one of the United States’ best new bars by Food & Wine’s Jim Meehan. Emmanuelle was the only bar from Philadelphia to make the 34-strong list.
