PHILADELPHIA - Fishtown Social, located at 1525 Frankford Avenue in the middle of Philadelphia's Fishtown neighborhood, is hosting its second “Drink Like a Fish(towner)” fundraising event, which will see Owner Vanessa Wong open every bottle in the house for a special wine tasting on Wednesday, September 21st from 5 to 9 p.m.
One of the city’s top natural wine destinations, Fishtown Social has hosted several events since opening in 2016. Still, none were as successful as the first iteration of Drink Like a Fish(towner), which took place in February 2020.
“This event was a massive success the first time around, and we always planned on doing a few more of them,” said Wong. “But the first one happened just weeks before everything shut down, so we haven’t been in a position to do this event again until now. Now that we can, we are beyond excited to welcome in the neighborhood, open all of our bottles, educate some people on different varieties of wine, and make some donations in the process. It’s just good to see Fishtown bustling again, and I’m super excited for what should be a really fun night.”
The proceeds will be donated to the Lutheran Settlement House, Fishtown Social’s neighbors. Fishtown Social features a rotating selection of reds, whites, sparkling wines, cocktails, beer, and shareable small plates. The wine bar and bottle shop are open seven days a week.
