Holiday season is upon us, guys! And to kick things off, last night we hosted our Be Well Philly Underground holiday shopping party with our friends from four of our favorite Rittenhouse spots: Philadelphia Runner, New Balance, Athleta and Honeygrow.

The party got its start at Philadelphia Runner, where folks picked up their Be Well Philly tote bags (I hope to see you guys carrying those to farmers’ markets all over town now, by the way!), grabbed a beer, and shopped around — with discount coupons in hand, of course. All the while Jon Lyons of Run215 kept great music going. (So. Much. Beyonce. All the praise-hands emojis here.)

Then, shoppers made their way from Philadelphia Runner to New Balance or Athleta. At New Balance, Jessa Stevens of Inspired Brews was slinging kombucha cocktails (I was a tiny bit skeptical too, but their gingerbread-vodka concoction was the bomb dot com) and Undergrounders got 20 percent off their purchase. At Athleta, a portion of the proceeds from Undergrounders’ shopping went to PAWS. So if you bought something, you’ve done at least one good deed this week! Last stop? To refuel, of course. Everyone who made it to all three stores got 50 percent off their order at Honeygrow. (Who else had the Red Coconut Curry noodles? So much goodness.)

We want to give a big, big thank you to the folks from Philadelphia Runner, Athleta, New Balance, Inspired Brews and Honeygrow for helping us help you get your shop on. And of course, a big thank you to all of you who came out and got your holiday cheer on with us. Until next year!

(And pssst: If you aren’t signed up for Be Well Philly Underground, you’re going to want to do that, like, now. We’ve got some really fun stuff planned for the upcoming months!)
