Concert/membership drive for South Philly Co-op

Have some free time tomorrow night? The South Philly Co-op and Gold Star Park is hosting a concert/pot-luck dinner at 7 p.m.

On August 15, come out and enjoy the last days of summer with the music of East Coastamite, a good-time, get-down, instrumental four-piece preaching the word of 60s-inspired, soul, surf, and organ jazz. Course there will be food too–the Co-op is celebrating with a a potluck. Bring your favorite dish made with at least one local ingredient to share and don’t forget to BYOB(lanket). Event begins at 7pm at Gold Star Park on Wharton between 6th and 7th.

Sign up to become a member-owner that night and you’ll receive $15 in gift cards for the Farm to City farmers markets. And if that’s not enough of an incentive, the first 40 people who stop by our table will get a free Little Baby’s ice cream sandwich.

Here’s the Facebook invite.

Events like this make the Co-op that much closer to reality. When we checked in with them a couple weeks back, 280 people had become member-owners and a newly formed real-estate committee was beginning to meet to explore location options. That’s a lot of progress on something that will be huge for the neighborhood.
Also, make sure to plan for the Co-op’s fall garden tour fundraiser. For $20 in advance or $25 on the day of, you can get into 20 hidden South Philly gems. That goes down on a Saturday (Sept. 8). Plus there’s an after-party at the Cantina with 20 percent off drinks.
