In case you don’t already know what you’re doing next Saturday, here’s something to add to your calendar: Greensgrow Farms is throwing a shrimp boil. It’s a benefit event for the Greensgrow Community Kitchen (which is a social entrepreneurship project which does everything from acting as a classroom and a licensed kitchen for food truck owners and small food entrepreneurs, to serving as the place where Greensgrow assembles all its prepared food and an educational venture helping people “navigate the labyrinth of city certifications and licenses”), so right from the start you can feel good about attending. But more important, it’s also gonna be a sweet party–a straight up low country shrimp boil with lots of food, popsicles from Little Pop Shop, beer from Philadelphia Brewing Company, and a Zydeco dance party on the side.
Independence Day is right around the corner and with all the happenings going on, it’s hard to know where to start. And with the festivities on the parkway to the concert and fireworks, you may end up overlooking a few hot spots. Here’s a guide to get you through the weekend with flying colors (preferably red, white and blue).
