EATS Philly 2015:
Two Countries, One Mission: A street food throwdown for healthy kids
Tuesday, May 5 (rain or shine) 6-9 p.m.
Join us for a unique and lively celebration of street food traditions, hosted by Philadelphia chef Brian Duffy of Spike TV’s Bar Rescue! EATS Philly brings together Philadelphia's finest chefs and food trucks for a night of friendly culinary competition.
Along the street outside, enjoy all-you-can-eat savory and sweet offerings from food trucks and local breweries (imagine a Night Market with no lines!). Wander inside and watch a heated on-stage cook-off, where nationally known chefs (Marcie Turney of Barbuzzo, Josh Lawler of Farm and Fisherman, Todd Wentz of Townsend and many more) put their own spin on authentic street cuisine from around the world—VIP ticket-holders will join top food critics in casting a vote for the night’s best bites! Also inside, you'll have the opportunity to bid on one-of-a-kind auction items such as a trip to Costa Rica and a local wine tasting and vineyard tour.
Proceeds benefit Wat Bodd Voraditth orphanage in Thailand’s Angthong Province and The Food Trust, nationally recognized nonprofit dedicated to ensuring that everyone has access to affordable, nutritious food and information to make healthy decisions.
