It’s Finally (Actually) Time for Pumpkin

ST-2014Pumpkinhead-Igram

So even if you’re like us at Foobooz, hating all things too-soon pumpkin, I think we can all agree that since the end of October is near it’s finally time to break out the pumpkin and like it. And for all of you who love pumpkin no matter how early in the season it is, this will send you over the moon.

Tonight, Standard Tap is hosting Pumpkin Head 2014. Starting at 4 p.m., the Tap will have a huge variety of pumpkin beers on tap, and for $10 you can get your very own hallowed out pumpkin from which you will drink the pumpkin beer. It really can’t get much more pumpkin-y that that. As a plus, after you’re finished your first pumpkin head, every refill from then on is only $2.

Standard Tap recommends getting there as close to 4 p.m. as possible because of limited supply of pumpkins.

red-umbrellaTuesday, September 9th is shaping up to be an evening reserved for getting your drink on and dipping into your inner artìst. Be careful not to get too tipsy though, or you might end up sending some embarrassing mail.

Greensgrow Farms Is Throwing A Shrimp Boil

GGShrimpBoilIn 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.

Standard Tap Raises Money for Children’s Hospital

4067-ASFor every fudge brownie sundae the Standard Tap sells, the Northern Liberties bar donates two dollars to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia. In 2013, that meant they donated $3315.00 to Children’s Hospital. As for how they arrived at an odd number when they donated an even amount for each dessert? We haven’t the foggiest.
