Spotluck Philadelphia Launch Party

What's green and inspires Philadelphians to hoot & holler? A Spotluck Launch Party, of course!


Before June 2016, there was only one green flowing through the veins of Philadelphia - a dark, "midnight" green for its beloved football team. In June, the city struck another green. This green a bit more neon and a lot less storied. Nonetheless, this new green could be seen flowing through local restaurants in neighborhoods far and wide. Now, it's time to celebrate this green newcomer!!

As a thank you for helping us kick off Spotluck Philly, we're throwing our biggest party ever! We'll be toasting 150 of Philly's best local restaurants with Free Neshaminy Creek Beer... Games... Prizes... Music.

Where: Uptown Beer Garden, 1735 Market St.
When: August 25, 2016; 5pm - 10pm
What: Libations, Green Swag & Spotluckers Everywhere
Cost: Free, but you must have the app!

Come early and, if you haven't already (?!), download the Spotluck app before you arrive.

*Must be 21+ to enter the party.

Clarendon Day 2015

Join us at the Spotluck booth at Clarendon Day 2015 for fun games, prizes, and to meet the team!  The 18th Annual Clarendon Day Street Festival is everything a street fair should be. Last year, well over 30,000 people attended.


Here's a guide from the Clarendon Day site for all the festival goers:

If you are new to Clarendon, here’s how it works:  In the morning, runners of all ages can participate in the Pacer’s 10k/5k/Kids Dash.  By the time the runners make it back up the hill, Clarendon Day has started.  Dive right in.

- You can listen to great bands and performance groups all day, on our FIVE music stages–(now with seating!)

- You can eat great food from a wide range of Clarendon restaurants (plus some specialty outfits that do festival food perfectly–you know what we’re talking about).

- You can stroll through the International Chili Cookoff Tournament grounds and learn from the masters, and even have a taste of their “homestyle” chile.  (The competition chili is reserved for the judges).  The Clarendon winners qualify for the National Championship!

- You can stroll through our Arts and Crafts promenade and find a range of one-of-a-kind items, and meet the people who create them.

- You can entertain your youngsters in our Kid’s Zone, with rides, music, story-telling, face-painting, and all the other things that kids like.

- You can meet a wide range of Clarendon businesses and nonprofits

- And you can enjoy the day and stroll the event site with a wide range of craft beers and wines.

- Dogs are welcome.
