Philadelphia Flower Show Deals & EventsBy Danya Henninger
March 3, 2014
The 185th Philadelphia Flower Show is now underway at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, so if you’re into blooms, and you don’t have a ticket yet, pick one up here ($20). The ticket not only gets you into the the longest running and largest indoor flower show in the world, it gives you access to restaurant deals around the city (good through March 9, unless otherwise noted). We’ve also listed a few drink-related events taking place on the show floor.
Simply say “flower” at this South Street Italian and you’ll score a free glass of wine with your meal.
South Street Souvlaki
Give the password “ART” - the theme of this year’s show is “Articulture” - and you’ll luck into free baklava with lunch or dinner at this South Street Greek.
Border Springs Farm at Reading Terminal Market
On Monday only, mention the Flower Show and get a free pita chips and dip with the purchase of your lamb sandwich.
Fine Wine & Good Spirits Tastings
At the state booze kiosk on the show floor, 21+ guests can look for free tastings and samples each day from 2-7 PM (1-4 PM on Sunday).
Girls Night Out
If you’re into massages, facials, shoping previews and spray tans, get the $50 package deal (here, under “Premier Event Tickets”) and follow up your traipse through the flowers on Thursday, March 6, with a 6-8 PM cocktail and freebie hour with your female cohorts.
Sandra Lee Vodka Bottle Signing
Smirnoff makes a spirits line called “Sorbet Light Vodkas,” and on Thursday, March 6, starting at 5:30 PM, the celebrity cooking show host will be signing bottles in the Grand Hall near the Fine Wine & Good Spirits store. (After the signing she’ll head to the Girls Night Out event above.)
Four Roses Master Distiller Bottle Signing
On Saturday, March 8, it’s master bourbon distiller Jim Rutledge’s turn to doodle his John Hancock on your very special bottle - the Fine Wine & Good Spirits store will be selling a custom barrel-aged bourbon. Sample it between 2-4 PM and 5-7 PM and then pick up your own to take home (supplies are limited).
