With the cold days of winter upon us, many of you are probably dreaming of hot summer days and enjoying a few drinks at a pop-up garden.
To add some steam to your current daydreams, here’s some news about the potential for even more beer gardens in South Philly this summer. The Department of Parks and Recreation, along with the Fairmount Park Conservancy, are planning on selecting vendors to operate beer gardens at select parks within the city.
Parks in consideration in South Philadelphia include FDR Park, Jefferson Square and Hawthorne Park.
So what’s the process to get these pop-ups to become a reality? Vendors interested in running food and drink operations at these pop-up gardens need to apply to the program
According to Foobooz, these are a few of the requirements for vendors looking to apply:
- Vendors must have a minimum of three years of experience operating one or more food and beverage venues that are successful and currently in business
- Vendors must have a current Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board license(s) in good standing
If you’re a vendor interested in operating food and drink services at one of these parks, find out more here. There will also be a meeting for interested vendors on Thursday, February 18 at 10 a.m. at the One Parkway Building at 1515 Arch Street.
