The event was held at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown’s on site restaurant – Thirteen. I was excited to check out this new place and learn more about their Spring/Summer specials. I came ready with my SLR in tow!
This was a special media event showcasing the new appetizers and drink specials Thirteen would be offering. They had a long list of awesome things to try!
Sabrina came to the event too, as she is another uwishunu writer! As soon as we got there, we both made a beeline straight for the food to get our photo shoot started! Clearly we were both in ‘food blogger mode.’ I snapped a picture of her in action.
There were lots of dishes to try and everything was beautifully displayed. Here are a few pictures of the awesome eats:
Fried pork chicharrones
And lots of other goodies!
I was excited about the food, but I was also equally excited to try out the new drink specials! The first drink I tried was the Candyman. Yes, it is just as yummy as it looks! It was delish!
I snapped a picture with my uwishunu editor – Hey Eric ! He’s so awesome, it was nice to hang out with him downtown for a bit.
Have you ever seen a prettier purple cocktail?
I need to recreate this bad boy at home!
Also, the rock candy was nothing short of amazing.
The first thing I tried after I enjoyed my drink was a big ‘ol ear of corn.
Random? Yes. Was it possibly for display only and not meant to be eaten? Maybe. But I love me some corn, so I grabbed it off the table and sat down to eat it!
It was pretty massive with the big husk!
But it was good! I love corn in the summer!
Everything on the menu was really tasty. I tried a little bit of everything and really enjoyed it. The appetizers and cocktails were all super affordable. The cocktails were all only $4, which for Center City Philadelphia is an amazing deal.
After some eats I enjoyed some sangria, which was also out of this world – in taste and appearance! How pretty does all the fruit look floating around in there? It was very tasty!
