Mütter Museum Hosting One Day Pop-Up Beer Garden

beer-garden-social-media-great-food-newOn Thursday, August 27th, The College of Physicians, home of the Mütter Museum, is hosting a pop-up beer garden from 5:30 p.m. to 10 p.m. in the museum’s botanical garden (19 S 22nd Street). The event will feature the debut of Ümlaut Fever, a light saison inspired by herbs found in the museum’s medicinal plant garden.

The Barren Hill brewed beer is brewed with fennel (historically a cure for flatulence and bloating) and ginger (used in the treatment of asthma, coughs and digestive spasms).

Entry is free and includes access to the recently installed Mind Illuminated exhibit. Guests will be able to purchase beer and snacks in the garden.

La Peg’s Got Movie Nights, Too

The outdoor beer garden at La Peg.

In continuation of what is turning out to be an unofficial dining-movie series in Philly (we wrote about Le Virtu on Monday), La Peg is also doing movie nights in their beer garden this summer. (To any other restaurant interested, we’ll happily take credit for starting up this trend, because outdoor drinking, food, and movies is pretty much all the best ways to celebrate summer compiled into one evening of awesome.)

Wednesdays at 8:30 PM throughout the summer, La Peg will be screening movies (with no admission cost) while firing up their outdoor grill. Meaning if you’re seated at the outdoor bar to watch the movie, you can order food right there. Meaning no craning your neck to see, and no need to get up for another beer. Sound good? Of course it does.

And the movie line up is pretty excellent, too…

The Vendy Awards 2015.

The Vendy Awards 2015.

Known to some as the “Oscars of street food” (seriously, google it), Philadelphia’s 5th Vendy Awards are back for another year of celebration.

Cummerbund optional, but preferred.

If your idea of a good Saturday includes copious amounts of food and beer, block off June 13th and head to the JFK Bridge from 1PM to 6PM. Because that’s where the chefs will be firing up their trucks for the entire event so that you have a chance to taste everything and name your favorite.

Oh, and when that pressure starts to get to you, take a break in the Sly Fox curated beer garden. Tickets are $65 for adults and $40 for kids and can be bought here.

Here’s the lineup of finalists:
