PHILADELPHIA - Fishtown Pickle Project is getting into the holiday spirit by putting an original spin on an age-old holiday tradition (Feast of the Seven Fishes), hosting their first-ever Feast of the Seven Pickles holiday cocktail party at Fishtown Social, located at 1525 Frankford Avenue, on Tuesday, December 21st beginning at 5 p.m.
Admission to what Fishtown Pickle Project owners Mike Sicinski and Niki Toscani expect to become an annual event is $35. It includes a plate of seven pickle-centric dishes and a complimentary flight of wine from Mural City Cellars. There will be 90-minute timed reservations, including a 5 to 6:30 p.m. timeslot and a later option from 6:30 to 8 p.m. A third 90-minute time slot will be added if demand is high. Walk-ins will also be welcome. Bottles of wine and jars of pickles will be available on location for purchase.
A portion of sales will benefit Magee Rehabilitation, whose mission is to improve the quality of life of persons with disabilities by providing high-quality physical and cognitive rehabilitation services. Donations support patient programs and services, including art and horticulture therapy, peer mentor and family support services, wheelchair sports, and much more.
Fishtown Pickle Project was created by Chef Mike Sicinski and dietitian Niki Toscani in 2018 after gifting handcrafted pickles to their wedding guests. Their small-batch fare is purposefully crafted using all-natural ingredients and bold flavors, sourcing cucumbers and other produce from Muzzarelli Farms in Vineland, New Jersey.
