The 6th annual 2nd Street Festival is back. On August 3rd from noon to 10 p.m., enjoy 6-blocks of over 150 vendors, including restaurants, food trucks, beer gardens, pop-up margarita bars, craft stations, and musical guests. Lil’ Pop Shop, Mac Mart Cart, Silk City Diner, and The Cow & The Curd are just a few of the places you can get your eats on. And across the festival, close to 30 artists and bands will be performing.

Yet the event isn’t just there to give you a good ole’ Sunday Funday, the 2nd Street Festival works to bring the community together and introduce others to the neighborhood. “This really is a unique, grass-roots neighborhood endeavor, putting a spotlight on the businesses, artists, and community members that make Northern Liberties so special,” said Owen Kamihira, a founding sponsor and owner of El Camino Real.

The festival is free and open to all ages.

Cow & Curd Getting Ready For Its Closeup

For a while now, the crew at The Cow & The Curd have been bringing cheese curds to the streets of Philadelphia. They’ve done events, pairing dinners and lots and lots of lunches. But now, for the first time, they’re going to be on TV. National TV.

NBC’s 1st Look (that’s okay, I had to look it up, too) is coming to town on February 17 to shoot a segment at Yards Brewing, featuring their Ales Of The Revolution series paired with cheese curds from Cow & Curd. It’s a President’s Day thing, so…you know. Revolutionary beers and fried cheese? Makes total sense.

The show will air nationally. And, of course, they’re looking for a crowd. So… If you like beer, cheese curds and TV, now you’ve got something to do on President’s Day.

You’re welcome.
