The Trestle Inn has quite a few groovy events lined up this month. So if you’re into go-go dancers, caipirinhas, beer, DJ’s, karaoke or whiskey sours, we have some good news for you.
Having snack options at the movies other than popcorn are great, but popcorn is still our snack of choice. And since it is National Popcorn Day, we figured it was a good day to list our favorites.
Here are our votes for best popcorn in Philadelphia.
In honor of DesignPhiladelphia’s upcoming, annual Pearl St. Passage festival covering the streets of Chinatown and North Callowhill neighborhood, retro whiskey and go-go bar, The Trestle Inn, is hosting We Can, a pop-up beer garden to help the city find creative ways to reuse and “upcycle” aluminum beer cans.
The Trestle Inn, located at the corner of 11th and Callowhill Streets, teamed up with MIO to create this event as a “playful tongue-in-cheek response” to the growing number of pop-up beer gardens surfacing the streets of Philadelphia.
If your Facebook feed is anything like mine this week it has been nothing but Pope maps and port-a-potties. That and some good people who are actually embracing the Pope coming to town and celebrating like its a blizzard.
Here are some of our favorite bar happenings this weekend.
Trestle Inn is about to make your summer Wednesday nights out a lot cheaper.
Its Spirit of Wednesday tasting program (which normally features $5 spirits) is switching it up for summer. Wednesdays will now feature local drafts for just $3. So, hit up Sips from 5-7pm and then head over to Trestle Inn at 7 pm to keep the deals (and the drinks) coming.
Each week will feature a different draft so you’ll get a chance to try a variety of brews at this low price. This special series will run straight through August and we’ve got the full July line up below.
The Trestle Inn, with its brown liquor and go-go dancers, definitely has a retro kind of vibe. And now they’re doubling (tripling?) down with a promotion that plays solidly to the bar’s strengths.
This past Saturday we enjoyed more than one Hot Toddy at the local bar and made a note then to drink more Hot Toddys. And now comes word that the Trestle Inn has a whole menu of Hot Toddy’s for the season and best of all, they are named for members of the Village People.
The Toddys are designed by bartender Katie Loeb and are available Wednesday and Thursday from 5 p.m. to 2 a.m., and Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Trestle Inn is getting in the “spirit” on Thursdays this fall, by offering complimentary spirit and cocktail tastings from 6 p.m. until 8 p.m. and cocktail specials til 10 p.m.
On Thursday, October 16th, the tasting will feature WL Weller’s Special Reserve. October 18th’s tasting will showcase the Trolley Car Cocktail, and the spirit of choice on October 30th is Western Grace Brandy.
Introducing the newest hump day treat: for the month of July, The Trestle Inn is bringing you a new wing dish every Wednesday. From 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. stop by and get a taste of their oven-baked wings paired with a new homemade sauce or House Buffalo. And if that’s not enticing enough, you’ll also get a shot of select whiskey and a can of beer.
Bring $10 for the ticket and maybe a napkin or two because wings combined with alcohol sounds as messy as it does delicious.
