I have my ticket. I’ve dieted all week.  I’m ready!  Let the eating begin…

This Saturday, I’ll join over 500 foodies that have already purchased their tickets to Flavors of the Avenue.  South Philly’s food fest is Saturday, April 28th, from 12:00 PM to 4:00 PM, on East Passyunk Avenue (EPA) between Dickinson and Morris Streets.   I can’t wait to mix and mingle with twenty-one chef’s that will help EPA raise money for its public safety program by dishing up their signature food and drinks.  Flavors is held under a big top tent, making the event rain or shine.  Although shine is certainly preferred!  Advance ticket sales end at Midnight on Wednesday, April 25, 2012 (unless tickets sell out first).  Visit www.visiteastpassyunk.com or call 215-336-1455.
