• New Venue Spotlight: Eat Drink Rock & Bowl

     
    FROM THE Spring 2017 ISSUE
     

Philly’s Fishtown neighborhood is home to the latest location of the Revolutions; Eat Drink Rock & Bowl bowling alley chain, an entertainment hub with a laundry list of amenities. The fifth Revolutions location officially opened its doors on Sept. 30, 2016. The factory-turnedbowling-alley has everything you need to have a fun-filled corporate event.

The 26-lane bowling alley also features a night club, Flair Street, a sports bar, live entertainment, and a full-service restaurant that serves craft burgers made fresh to order and 70 craft beers. Each lane features jumbo screens, sofa seating and oversized coffee tables.

Revolutions can even be rented out for private events. The 52,000-square-foot converted factory can host events for up to 1,400 guests. “We’re equipped with a full banquet kitchen and offer a variety of private party food and beverage menus,” says Event Sales Manager Christie Jones. “Our unique party space has hosted seated parties, bowling parties, cocktail parties and themed parties—pretty much anything you can think of.”  

Marilyn Sukonick-Zeff’s story starts in a Barnes & Noble. On a whim, many moons ago—as she says—she took her two children for story hour at the national bookstore and noticed there would be a tarot card reader coming in to promote selling the cards. The experience intrigued her so much she asked for a private reading with the woman on a different date.

 

Red Pedal Tours in Philadelphia is now offering a brand-new tour for foodies. We profiled Red Pedal Tours in our Spring 2014 issue when they had just hit the streets with their bright red pedicycle, and we are thrilled they are growing in popularity. The pedicycle is powered by you—there are 12 seats lining two sides of the cycle, with a bench in the back for three non-cyclers to enjoy the ride. Their history tours are a fun and active way to experience the city’s history in a new way.

 

A sneak peek of the venue spaces at the Museum of the American Revolution, which will open on April 19, was celebrated on Jan. 19 in Philadelphia. The invite-only event was held for industry insiders to showcase the new museum’s offerings for events and meetings, which includes four main event spaces: Rotunda, Patriots Gallery, Liberty Hall and Founder’s Board Room.
