For those who don't receive our emails (or choose not to read them!), please note that SCP is taking a summer vacation. We'll be back in the Fall!
February, the month of Cupid, Hallmark, chocolates and SCP! Join us as we "Drink Up, Give Back" at Pennsylvania 6 for Valley Youth House. VYH provides programs which support at risk youth in our area. For a $10 donation (100% of proceeds to VYH), you'll get a free bubbly cocktail and appetizers (while supplies last). So, grab that guy or girl you've been eyeing OR grab some friends and show 'em some love! We'll see you on Tuesday, Feb. 4th from 5:30-7:30pm!
Thanks to all who made it to Bru in December as we drank for the Norris Square Neighborhood Project. Thanks also to Bru for providing outstanding drinks and snacks (still dreaming of those fried balls of deliciousness whose name escapes me at the moment)! In the spirit of the season, you all gave like champs and raised a big $610.
Since the holiday season tends to take a toll on folks, we will be cancelling the January Happy Hour. But, be sure to mark those calendars for Feb. 4th, when we gather once again. More details TBA.
Apologies to everyone for our lack of updates over the last few months! We've still been at it, just utilizing Facebook for the regular event announcements and lazy about getting updates on this site as well. Enough excuses though! Below is an update of where we've been, who our drinking has benefited and what we've raised!
In August, we drank for Face to Face at 1 Tippling Place. In September we kicked it with Starfinder at Smiths. In October we partied for Taller Puertorriqueno at Nodding Head. And in November we whooped it up with Musicopia at Tietra. We managed to raise $1820 along the way!
Our next event is slated for Tuesday, December 3rd
After our July vacation, we are looking forward to our August Happy Hour! Come enjoy the last event of summer (huh?!) and drink up for a good cause. Our August Happy Hour will benefit Face to Face. They provide a number of services to help individuals in need overcome life's challenges.
1 Tippling Place is providing one free specialty punch or beer and light food from 6-7pm for your $10 donation. So, grab some friends, and get your faces to SCP this month!
The festivities run from 5:30-7:30pm.
Hello SCP Faithful! Due to a variety of factors, we are going to experiment with taking July off this year. As our usual first Tuesday typically puts us in competition with 4th of July travel and celebrating, we thought it might be okay to give everyone a break with the promise of a return to our August 6th event. Details will come your way shortly! See you in August =)
We are WAY late with our post-Happy Hour recap note...sorry about that! We're happy to report $300 raised for Sink or Swim Philadelphia in June. A big thank you again to Ralic's on South for their donation of drinks and eats!
Now that the heat is on, it's time to come cool of with a beer/cocktail! As usual, SCP is helping you feel better about your boozing by making it benefit something good. This month's beneficiary is Sink or Swim (SOS). SOS helps people who are uninsured or underinsured pay for medical expenses using social media and medical crowdfunding. To date, they have raised over $30K for 17 recipients!
June's "First Tuesday" is the 4th. Per usual, your $10 donation will get you one free drink and some free appetizers (while they last) courtesy of Ralic's on South Street!
So...say "no" to sweat and say "yes" to SCP and SOS!
We wanted to share a big THANK YOU to everyone who made it out to this past Tuesday's Happy Hour. Committing our minds (and mouths) to the "Drink Up, Give Back" philosophy resulted in $600 for the Philadelphia Orchard Project (POP)! This is enough money to plant almost 8 trees which will bare 100 lbs of fruit for up to 100 years...(minds being blown!) We couldn't have done it without the generosity of Elephant and Castle.
Before your summer schedules get too full, be sure to add SCP into your calendar for Tuesday, June 4th. We'll have more details for you as the date nears.
Is it just us or is this sunshine putting anyone else in a drinking state of mind? Hopefully both the weather and that attitude sustains until this coming Tuesday (May 7th) when we host our May Happy Hour. Our collective boozing efforts will support Philadelphia Orchard Project. With warm weather here to stay (hopefully), remember that not all of our communities have access to the fresh food of the season. POP's mission is "to plant orchards in the city of Philadelphia that grow healthy food, green spaces and community food security."
Your $10 donation will go to POP in full and get you one free drink and some yummy appetizers (while supplies last) courtesy of the fine folks at Elephant & Castle. We had a great time the last time we were there and are happy to be able to return again.
Bring your friends on down and get fresh with us (err...that sounds wrong!) this Tuesday! Festivities run from 5:30-8pm.
