Northeast Philadelphia’s Blue Duck is turning two and celebrating with a couple days worth of events. On Sunday, October 2nd, owners Kris Serviss, Joe Callahan and general manager Nick Cammarota are hosting their second annual Blue Duck Block Party. Last year there was brunch food, games, prizes, live music, a DJ and even a giant blue duck. This year, they’re going to repeat the party but you know, bigger and better.

And then on Monday, October 3rd, the Blue Duck crew is hosting a pop-up Jewish deli. Once a staple of Northeast Philadelphia, the Jewish deli has faded into the sunset but for one day, the Blue Duck will be transformed into Ace’s Deli, a Jewish deli complete with matzoh ball soup, corned beef, smoked pastrami and Jewish apple cake.

The pop-up runs Monday from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
