  • 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.”  

INSPIRATION

The texture of the Norman Arch leading into the historic Masonic Temple in Philadelphia inspired this clean, midcentury modern table.

DETAILS

This summer table fit for a special event, such as a chairman’s dinner, features a mix of midcentury design with modern elements. Carolyn Rizzo, head designer of Garnish, says this technique is easily accomplished in décor but challenging to pull off in event design.

 

Mural Arts Philadelphia is the nation’s largest public art program. More than 30 years old, it has supported the creation of 4,000 public art pieces that have transformed public spaces and helped the city earn the nickname “City of Murals.” Decorating facades of buildings in neighborhoods throughout the city, the organization even offers mural tours (our own Maureen Hennessey experienced one last year). Now, the organization has announced something new and exciting – a 10-episode radio broadcast starting with a large-scale performance on Independence Mall.

 

This museum promises to share a story that is not quite the one we learned in school. George Washington does indeed make an appearance—you can see the tent that he used as his headquarters in an interactive exhibit—but Museum of the American Revolution promises to tell a tale that is lesser known. From the first shots of the Revolutionary War to the formation of the United States, its mission is to tell the story of everyone from slaves and Native Americans to women who took up arms to fight for the cause.
