Passayunk Italian Festival 2016

Today on East Passayunk was an Italian Festival celebrating all things South Philly. There was food, beer, a moon-bounce, and a pasta eating contest that was shockingly decided in SIX seconds (although I could have done it in five). 

Although the Festival only spanned two blocks of Passayunk, there was enough to keep anyone occupied for hours. Luckily the rain held off and music filled the air while people from the area filled the streets to patron the local shops and sample the local cuisine that operated out of curb side tents for the day.

Covered in gravy shrapnel, I headed home to look at photos while wondering what the next event would be. Stay tuned.


Cocktails with Tamworth Distilling, Art in the Age, and Audrey Claire Cook

Last night I had the pleasure of being invited downtown to attend a cocktail demonstration at Audrey Claire Cook which sits just a couple blocks from Rittenhouse Square. Maura Gallagher and Karrisa Olsen of Tamworth Distilling were there to show off some of their newest gins, cordials, and vodkas while Dan Hamm of mixed the night away.  

Although the liquor stands well on it's own, Dan was able to take it to the next level while giving us a chance to drink five different cocktails and giving handy little tips for your own drinks. 

These classes are held every Thursday but the seating fills up quickly due to the limited availability. Information can be found at and more Tamworth Distillery products are beginning to hit Philly each week at bars all over the city so keep an eye out!
