East Passyunk celebrating Food & Wine nod with a party tomorrow

The East Passyunk Business Improvement District is throwing itself a party at the fountain tomorrow, Wednesday April 17.

Looks like a good place for a party, huh?
Looks like a good place for a party, no?

The well-deserved pat on the back is happening because the avenue was named one of the “10 Best Foodie Streets in America” in the May 2013 issue of Food & Wine Magazine.

The story mentioned Fond, Will BYOB, Marra’s, Pollyodd and (non-food but still cool) Era Atomica. The party will feature food and drink specials from Fond, Stateside (even though they weren’t mentioned for some reason) and other restaurants. A free concert will also be held by DisCanto, folk musicians from Abruzzo that are here as part of a tour arranged by Le Virtu.

Also, Chef Joncarl Lachman, of the soon-to-open Noord, will provide a quick look into the new restaurant being constructed catty-corner from the fountain, at 11th and Tasker.

The shindig goes down from 5 to 7 p.m.
