I don’t know if you’ve heard, but Pennsylvania 6 has a champagne brunch now. Well, that’s like a siren call to us, so of course we decided to check it out. Here’s the thing, folks, many people will call for bubbles at the climax of a celebration; we prefer to start your average Saturday Shenanigans with a bottle or two. Deal with it.
So the lovely lady server brought us our bubbly and three mixers (pictured), orange juice (duh), grapefruit, and a honeydew melon that was bright green. Of course, I went with the green because anything green is healthy, right? Don’t answer that. It was super quiet, which was actually kind of nice for a change. I mean, brunch in PHL is a THING, so getting some quiet time with the squad is a rare treat. Plus the food was delish, per usual, and while I didn’t sample the oysters clearly they were a hit. I blinked and they were gone, I couldn’t have grabbed one if I wanted.
Not to worry, we quickly hit the streets to continue our advenure and work off all those calories. Hello, hidden pop up beer garden! I mean, those of us who have been around may roll our eyes at PHL’s ‘Loft District’ (cue aggressive air quotes), but it’s definitely worth wandering through (when the sun is clear and present for duty) just to enjoy some urban nature and fabulous beverages.
The one thing about the PHS Pop Up Garden at the Viaduct Rail Park (pictured below) is that it is kind of in the middle of nowhere. It was a great walk from Pennsylvania 6 because we had eaten our weight in yumminess and needed to walk it off, but where to go from here?
Sure you could stroll back to Chinatown, plenty to do there. Or walk to Broad via Spring Garden and enjoy some good spots along the way. Or jump in a cab and head to anywhere in the city in under 20 minutes. (yeah, that’s right, PHL is awesome)
So, what did our adventurers choose? You’ll have to wait and read…
