The Terrace @ Thirteen

On Tuesday evening I got to attend a fabulous event downtown in Center City Philadelphia on behalf of uwishunu. I love my blogging gig for uwish! I get to check out so many awesome places!

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.

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.

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!

Thanks for the awesome evening Thirteen and uwishunu! I can’t wait to come back again soon!

    Hey! I did sign up for the ODDyssey Half. I would love to run it together!! I think your "taking it easy pace" will be my "pushing it pace" so it might work out well.
