Just hours ago, I ventured over to The First Unitarian Church, not for a musical show or performance, but for a locally-sourced dinner!
Philly Stake is in its 4th year and has, since 2010, distributed more than $15,000 to over 21 different organizations. As we descended the familiar steps, we were given ballots and a terse explanation of what to expect: the scene was something akin to a science fair. Innovators claimed spaces to set up informational booths and speak with us, the attendees. There was cider and beer donated by Philadelphia Brewing Company, and an impressive menu written on butcher paper atop the tables which filled up the space I’ve only ever experienced as a concert-goer.
