Fishtown Social will be uncorking and unscrewing its wine bottles to raise money to benefit a local organization, giving back to the community.
A portion of proceeds made during Drink Like a Fish(towner) will be donated to the Lutheran Settlement House. The wine-tasting event on Tuesday, Sept. 26, will feature three 90-minute sessions from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., 6 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., and 8 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. Space for the event is limited and costs $55. To purchase tickets, interested parties can email email@example.com. Depending on availability, walk-ins are welcome.
This is the third iteration of the event, which sold out last September and just before the pandemic in February 2020.
This year, Fishtown Social owner Vanessa Wong has extended an invitation to local businesses, including Kitchen Philadelphia, Essen Bakery, Fiore Fine Foods, and Fishtown Seafood, to pour their favorite sparkling wines for this event.
"We decided to invite some neighborhood businesses – new and old – that we love and respect to be a part of it this year, as we're always looking for ways to make this event more unique each time around," Wong said.
Customers can get a 10% discount on any wines purchased on Sept. 26.
The Lutheran Settlement House is a non-profit organization that provides food access and services for Philadelphia's homeless and senior populations. They also provide services for people who suffer from domestic violence situations.
