(The following is a special series on Bluejeanfoodcritic.com written by guest contributing writer William Knowles. He highlights his passions of trying something new whenever the opportunity presents itself, or possibly something old, but new again since it has been awhile. I hope you enjoy his very special perspective that I am sure many of you can relate to. Follow him on his exciting journey “Around Town”)
The Philly Tour Hub recently opened shop at 229 Arch St. in a historic building in the Old City Neighborhood of Philadelphia. The newly renovated facility recently held an open house to spotlight a few regional businesses looking to expand the public’s knowledge of them. Philly Tour Hub is a new private venture that offers walking and riding tours of our great city. Segway tours are also available to the destination of your choice.
Another venture highlighted was Ferment Your Event, an upstart agency that will liven up your office party, business workshops, dinner party, and fundraising events and so on by providing a unique take on the ever growing world of craft beer. Owners Tara Nurin and Gary Rosen specialize in creating specialized beer menus for your event big or small, and their expertise in the industry dates back years. They have partnered with gourmet chocolatier Elyissia Chinchilla, who founded 2 Chicks with Chocolate in Northern New Jersey several years ago with her mother. The novelty pairings of beer and chocolate surprised and impressed the visitors, including myself.
The beer and chocolate were more than enough to have a great party, but to top it off, Tuk Tuk Real, a combination Thai and Mexican restaurant located at 428 South Street, provided amazing food (notably a great pork kaprow taco).
All in all, it was a unique way for multiple businesses to get their word out, while emphasizing fun by thinking outside the box. See you at more events like this, around town…
