If you’re looking for an excursion to brush away the winter doldrums, look westward to Philadelphia and the annual Philadelphia Flower Show. This year’s show marks—and celebrates—the 100th year of America’s National Parks, and is a partnership with the National Park Service.
Food offerings will include healthy munchies, themed diners, coffee, candy and ice cream shops, as well as the PHS Pop Up Beer Garden located at Base Camp in the Grand Hall. A percentage of proceeds from food and beverage sales will benefit Philadelphia Horticultural Society programs, including City Harvest. The Trail Mix Bar, near the exhibit hall entrance, gives visitors a chance to make their own selection of healthy treats, including nuts, raisins, cranberries, chocolate and granola, before they begin their journey. The Smokey Mountain Café offers free-range bison sloppy joe sandwiches and corn on the cob. The Declaration of Cheesesteaks offers The Franklin, a new twist on the classic cheesesteak. Death Valley Chicken Strip serves up hearty wings and turkey legs with a deathly delicious dessert, death by chocolate. Glacier Trading Post is a great option for a sweet snack.
Other dining options include the Denali Café, Rita’s (Water Ice) Ranger Shack, and Glamping with Stella Artois.
A feast for the eyes and the palate awaits! The show runs through Sunday, March 13, 2016.
