To-Do List: SPTR block party, Italian Market Festival, Le Virtu’s patio

Another spring weekend, another set of block parties in South Philly (that’s three weeks in a row, maybe we should diversify).

Nah, these are worth it.


South Philly Tap Room Wheat Beer


South Philly Tap Room, 1509 Mifflin St., is busting outside for a block party, it’s 8th annual wheat beer festival. More than 30 wheat brews will be flowing for only $3 a piece. Plus expect BBQ from chef Scott Schroeder and live music from West Philadelphia Orchestra, Adam and Dave’s Bloodline, Arrah and the Ferns, and Robotrippers.

Noon to 8 p.m.

Saturday and Sunday:

The Italian Market Festival lasts two days, and there will be plenty of beer flowing there, too. Check our post from earlier in the week for more info.

11 a.m. to 6 p.m., music, street vendors, beer. (Saturday should be the bigger of the two days, and Sunday more family friendly). Free


Le Virtu debuts its new patio with a party and chef Joe Cicala on the grill. Check here for more info. 1 to 3 p.m. $45, which includes wine and food.
