Tonight, from 5pm-7pm on the lower level of the Shops At Comcast (1701 JFK Blvd), there’s going to be a Mixology Mixer–which basically means a competition-slash-cocktail-demonstration which will have some of the best bartenders in the city putting together spring cocktails which you, as a value-conscious cocktail enthusiast, will then judge. You get to vote for your favorite (via social media so, you know, it’s all modern-y), and the best bartender wins… I dunno. Bragging rights or whatever.
The important takeaway here is that there are going to be cocktails, that the event is open to the public, and that it’s free.
Indeblue’s Midtown Village location is adding a late night happy hour. Nightly, from 9 p.m. till the bar closes, the Indian restaurant runs the same bar specials they do from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Those deals include $3 beers, $4 wines, $5 cocktails and $3, $4 and $5 plates.
Indeblue joins a host of other Midtown Village bars and restaurants offering late night deals.
Indian food has been a part of Philadelphia’s culinary landscape for a long time — so long that there’s no specific neighborhood devoted to it, but rather a spray of outposts scattered around: biryani on Ridge Pike in Eagleville, goat curry in Northeast Philly, Punjabi cuisine in Chester County, dosa just over the bridge in Cherry Hill. The Indian canon is broad and fractious in its variety of regional specialties, so here’s a must-hit list for those looking to expand their tastes beyond tandoori chicken.
