It’s Friday the Firkinteenth at the Grey Lodge


kicked28-firkinFor the second month in a row we’ve been graced with a Friday the Thirteenth, which of course means two straight months of Friday the Firkinteenth at the Grey Lodge. For the uninitiated, that means a cask ale festival at the Northeast Philadelphia beer bar. The festival is broken into two sessions, a daytime session starting at noon, and an evening session kicking off at 6 pm.

There is only one more Friday the Firkinteenth this year (November), and in even worse news, only one in all of 2016.

There’s never a cover but it is cash only.
