Sinful Feasts: A Philadelphia Landmark Dinner Series

First up in the Sinful Feasts series is the Powel House on March 12.

Sinful_FeastIf you’re a history buff or a lover of old Philadelphia landmarks, Alex Garfinkel Catering and Art in the Age have a pretty cool event for you. Sinful Feasts is a monthly dinner series they will be hosting through October at various Philadelphia landmarks.

At each landmark, they will offer an exclusive farm-to-table, four-course dinner for just 20 guests. The dinner will include cocktails, but it’ll also run you $150 per person.

If the price didn’t immediately scare you off, then you’re exactly the sort of person that this dinner series is designed for. The first dinner will be at the Powel House, 244 South 3rd Street. Samuel Powel, Philadelphia’s first post-Revolutionary mayor, and his wife, Elizabeth Willing Powel, held gatherings for the city’s elite-like John Adams and other well-known figures of the day. Well, now you can imagine for yourself what these parties were like.

The dinner will be on Thursday, March 12th at 7 pm. The menu will offer haddock, venison and guinea ham, with complimentary cocktails made with Stripp’d Juice blends. You can make your reservations for the dinner here.
