Busy Saturday Down on the Farm!

It is going to be a busy Saturday down on the farm – the Marathon Farm that is to say. First up is their weekly farmer’s market, which runs from 10 am to 2 pm. Did you know that people are welcome to bring their own hand made goods to sell alongside the usual fresh picked produce? Pretty cool.

But, as we mentioned, that is just the start of the day at 27th and Master Streets. Next up, beginning at 3 PM, is what they are calling The Farm Party: Summer Sessions. This will be the first of 3 planned neighborhood bar-b-que’s, and features a bar-b-que (duh), “family activities, shopping and lots of energy building, love spreading FUN!” The party runs until 7 PM.

For more information about these events, and potential summer jobs, please contact Charlyn at cbrownskin@marathonlovesphilly.com

This is what living in Brewerytown is all about. Hope to see you there!!

Sexing Mutumbo Spreads from Brewerytown to the World

You may recall this hilarious wheat paste we saw in at 28th and Girard in Brewerytown in May. Well, this phenomenon has now spread into Northern Liberties. Keep on keeping on!

Art + Soul Food 2011 Recap

Art + Soul Food 2011 took place in Brewerytown one week ago, and we all definitely had a lot of fun! Modern Color absolutely killed it, the fried chicken was flowing, the art installations were excellent and the party didn’t stop until the last Yards beers were finished at the after party. Check out this nice write up by Jonathan Hartley, and some photos of the event as well (maybe you will see yourself). The exhibits are 2732 and 2816 W Girard are still up, so please come check them out.

Spend the weekend in Brewerytown!

OK! There is so much happening this weekend in Brewerytown, that this is going to have to be a long post. So let’s get to the point: there are 3 different events this weekend, each of which should not be missed!

First up is the very first (of many to come) farmer’s market by Brewerytown’s Marathon Farm. The market begins tomorrow Saturday the 11th at 10 AM and runs through 2 PM. Expect a lot of greens, radishes, beets, herbs and more. Be there!!

Next up, on Saturday June 11th from 5-8 PM, is the 3rd annual Art + Soul Food street festival, featuring live music, the best soul food in the city, local artists with international talent, appearances by the Honest Tom’s Tacos and Buttercream Cupcakes food trucks, a Yards Brewing Co. after-party, the local drum team and even a fashion show. Focused on the 2700 and 2800 blocks of Girard, this event is a real labor of love for the community.

On Sunday June 12th at 8 PM, world-renowned Philadelphia native DJ Cosmo Baker makes a not-to-be-missed very special appearance at one of the City’s great-unknown dive bars!

Cosmo Baker is widely considered as one of the top party-rocking DJs on the planet. A master of everything from hip-hop to disco & funk to electronic music, his unique style and spinning prowess is able to bring it all together in a cohesive, and funky manner. This Philadelphia native cut his chops alongside contemporaries such as ?uestlove and Rich Medina, and when he relocated to Brooklyn in the early ’00s he helped found the internationally known DJ / remix collective The Rub. His knowledge of music is only matched with his uncanny ability to move the crowd. Cosmo is a rare breed of DJ that bridges the gap between the legendary DJs of yesterday and the superstar DJs of today.

Era Bar is located at the corner of 28th and Poplar Streets. Did we mention it serves Ethiopian food, and has great craft beers on tap as well as cheap drink specials? What about its’ super long 360 degree bar? This hangout reflects the Ethiopian soul of its owner, and should be far more widely known. This opportunity to come groove with Cosmo on a Sunday evening at Era is rare indeed. Don’t miss this party on June 12th at 8 PM!
