Here’s a citywide round-up of some of the best Philly Pride food and drink specials being offered in June.
Cocktails for a Cause is back, and all of FCM Hospitality’s venues will offer a drink representing a different color of the all-inclusive Pride rainbow flag. But this year, they also have a new partner and help from the Philadelphia Flyers, Flyers Charity and of course, Gritty. Philadelphians can drink the rainbow from June 1 – 30 at some of the city’s top spots including Liberty Point (Orange, Flyer’s Rowdy Rita), Morgan’s Pier (Yellow, Crushin It), Juno (Red, Rose-Blood), Dolphin Tavern (Light Blue, Out to Sea), Craft Hall (Brown, Pom-Pom Rumchata Cold Brew), Lola’s Garden (Purple, Butterly Gimlet), Parks on Tap (Blue, Peachy Keen), Concourse Dance Bar (Pink, Hubba Bubba), Harper’s Garden (Green, Dill Wit It), Rosy’s Taco Bar (Black, Margarita Negra) and The Garden at Cherry Street Pier (White, Frozen Spiked Lemonade.)
As a bonus, the first-ever Cocktails for a Cause Pride Party and Kick-Off event (which will be free and feature all cocktails) will take place on Thursday, June 9 at Liberty Point from 5 to 8 p.m. While there, the Philadelphia Flyers and Flyers Charities will be on hand with Gritty (at 6 p.m.), while the evening will also be filled with fun surprises.
In total, the month long activation will benefit four charities across the city.
