Many of you probably don’t know this, but Pollyodd, Philly’s very own aperitif/digestif line, hosts a tasting every Saturday from 5-7 PM. It’s free and delicious, and it’s perfect for a pre-dinner activity.
This Saturday, though, make your mother mad with some dessert before dinner. Owner Joan Verratti will be pairing up with Mother’s Gourmet Pastries & Ice Cream for some ‘cello flavored ice creams. Think Banana-Strawberry, made with her Bananacello cream and chunks of real strawberries, Choco-Cherry which is made with her Chocolatecello and chunks of real cherries, White Chocolate-Orange made with her Orangecello cream and chunks of real white chocolate, and Mango-White Peach made with her Mangocello and chunks of real white peaches.
1908 E. Passyunk, folks. This Saturday. Be there, or be square.

Pollyodd, the limoncello shop we told you about in late October is opening to the public today. Though today’s hours will only be from 2 to 7 p.m., look for an official grand opening coming right up.
Pollyodd, which is at 1908 East Passyunk Avenue is taking advantage of a change in Pennsylvania law that allows a distiller to open an off-site retail establishment, much like PA wineries can. Pollyodd, the booze is a line of 18 alcoholic drinks including limoncello, lime, orange, or chocolate flavored liqueurs. A bottle will run about $26-$28.
