Party to mark 5th anniversary of Porch at 30th Street Station

The Porch at 30th Street Station will celebrate its 5th anniversary with a party from 4:30 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 28th, featuring food, drinks, giveaways, and music.

University City District, which operates and programs The Porch, is partnering with 33rd Street Hospitality and Jet Wine Bar to bring $5 food and drink specials in honor of the five years.

The Porch, a gathering place outside the train station,  is billed as Philadelphia’s first “lighter quicker cheaper” public space, and originally involved simple, cost-effective, and fully removable elements. Five years later, The Porch has become more permanent, with elements contributed by Groundswell Design Group, Gehl Studio, and Visit Philly.

Food trucks Say Cheese, Street Food, and Taco Mondo will offer items from their regular menus at a special $5 price point, including 2 for $5 tacos, grilled cheese, BBQ and bahn mi sandwiches, and more.

Drinks will be provided by Jet Wine Bar at special $5 prices for beer and wine. DJ Shawn Ryan will provide music, and Shake Shack will give out free scoops of  custard while supplies last. The event is free to attend and pay-as-you-go for food and drinks.
