Did you know there is a day just to celebrate watermelon? Neither did I, but apparently it is a thing and to celebrate the day, two bars are hosting Watermelon Day events on Wednesday, August 3rd.

City Tap House – University City is hosting a good old-fashioned watermelon eating contest. At 6:30 p.m. you can attempt to win some Phillies tickets and $100 gift card to City Tap by eating the most watermelon. To sign up email avirgili@table95.com.

But if you don’t think you can stomach that much watermelon, they will be having the Watermelon CeleBEERation starting at 5 p.m. Expect watermelon beers from Terrapin Beer Co., New Belgium Brewing, Anderson Valley and of course 21st Amendment Brewing.

Devil’s Den is even more eager for Watermelon Day, kicking off the celebration today, Friday, July 29th and will be continuing the party through Wednesday with their Watermelon Fest. They are very excited about honoring this venerable fruit (or is it a vegetable?). Devil’s Den will be serving watermelon draft beers, watermelon cocktails, watermelon boozy popsicles, and watermelon themed snacks.

Here’s hoping you have a successful watermelon day and don’t swallow any seeds.
