A Play with Drinks
There is a new cocktail joint opening where the old neighborhood dive used to be. Progress? The stories of a Philly block are shaken and stirred through the perspective of bartender Whitey as he struggles to understand his place in a place he knows he doesn’t belong.
Each new chapter features a unique craft cocktail that lets you taste the story as you hear it. Sip a botanical habanero gin concoction while you learn the fate of Hope’s Garden. Consider the Margarita; it’s the only drink on the menu that the bartender didn’t invent. Each full ticket comes with at least four 2oz cocktails crafted right in front of you. This one-man epic-poem brings metaphors as intricate as the handmade paprika syrup for you to savor. Or choke on. Welcome to the neighborhood.
"As a performer, White is impressive. He is charming, funny and friendly, as any good dive bartender should be, but when the stories get serious, White’s expressions of empathy and understanding tug at the heartstrings" - Broad Street Review
