Feats of strength & great prizes from Victory Brewing at Castle Ringstetten. With Billy Murphy’s Beer Garden and the behemoth Tapasaurus!
Masskrugstemmen – or, beer stein holding – is a Bavarian competition that’s pretty self explanatory: you see who can hold their beer in one hand the longest. A full liter glass stein. Straight out in front of you. Parallel to the floor or you’re out.
How long do you think you could last?
You probably know these non-siblings from the best live music venues around town: The Grape Room, McGillicuddy’s, Bourbon Blue, Dawson Street Pub to name a few. Catch them playing all our rock/pop favorites at East Falls Oktoberfest.
TRUE STORY: The Duke Brothers are not really brothers. They’ve really only known each other since 2011 — and within a year they were performing as a duo.
No relation, though. They took their name from the grumpy old villains in “Trading Places,” a 1983 Eddie Murphy/Dan Ackkroyd movie that both Joe Holz (vocalist) and Andrew Geigert (guitar) were big fans of — especially the Duke Brothers, who were so funny & so horrible simultaneously. Plus, “It’s a Philly-based movie, and we’re a Philly band,” Andrew explained.
Come to the Castle for East Falls Oktoberfest! This historic boathouse is one of the few remaining buildings by Frank Furness, a gun-toting, spear-stabbing Civil War hero with a flair for mad design.
You’ll see this September 30th — Frank Furness was one sassy architect!
When the rest of Philadelphia (and the US, really) was still copying Europe, he looked West to define a bold new style unlike anything seen before. He’s also the only famous architect ever to receive the Congressional Medal of Honor.
Say goodbye to summer clutter, and hello to cold cash for fall! Five money-making tips for flea market season, plus FREE vendor sign-ups for Laurel Hill cemetery this September.
Fall in Philly was made for outdoor markets — great weather, and fun crowds now with everyone back from the shore & looking for stuff to do on weekends. Hello, customers!
Laurel Hill’s “Twice as Nice” flea market (Sept 16) is a fantastic way to clear out your house before the holidays and bump up your Christmas fund, to boot. These five quick tips will help even first timers profit like a professional.
Every now and then, we get a little bit excited about astronomy around here – particularly for a monumental event like Monday’s solar eclipse.
Although only partially visible in the Philadelphia area, the Library’s space-themed eclipse-viewing party was a full success!
A lively group of about 50 neighbors took time out of their Monday afternoon for live streaming coverage and a clever banquet of snacks: Milky Ways, Sun Chips, and Cosmic Brownies (that last one raised some eyebrows on Facebook, ha).
Alden Park’s a historic location that never gets old. With its rose-colored towers, Art Deco pool, and sprawling, landscaped grounds, it’s like something out of a movie or Vogue.
And the perfect backdrop for Jovan O’Connor’s special occasion designs!
55 reasons to love local art! Thanks to an East Falls collector following in Albert Barnes’ footsteps.
OMG, guys. Turns out, East Falls is sitting on what may be the biggest collection of art by friends & associates of Dr. Albert C Barnes. And thanks to George Anderson, these spectacular paintings are making the rounds at various neighborhood events this year.
Life at Alden Park was especially sweet last July when Spun Sugar filled the landscape with yummy jams that made hearts soar high as the towers.
Hot “Miami Days” were made for chill tunes by the water. Sun’s on your shoulders and you’re feeling fine.
Spun Sugar had our perfect soundtrack for Alden Park‘s pool party and food fest — a funk-reggae, jazzy-rock fusion that’s its own groovy party in your ears. Our friend Colin Carroll (composer/lead vocals/etc) has been making music all his life, and now finally with Spun Sugar he’s found his voice as an artist and his joy as a performer.
He was right, people were moving! “Yes, you will dance, sway, rock, and shimmy,” Colin assured us before the event. He also shared some of his favorite Spun Sugar songs, along with insights from his conscious choice to live creatively.
