Valentine to the Market at Reading Terminal

What makes a great party?

Great food.  (double check)

Great drinks. (check)
Cool place.  (check, check.)

Fun crowd.  (Up to us.)

Last year's Valentine to the Market was an epic bash.   The food was staggering; catered by the Reading Terminal Market Merchants, the variety and quality were truly amazing.  The bars flowed generously with signature cocktails, wine, and beer.  As to the fun factor, well, we can personally attest to this.   We were literally pushed out the door in a conga line by the security team.  Guess they figured "if you can't beat 'em, join 'em."  And they did, right out onto 12th Street.  Kaboudi, the steel drum band who played the final set to close the evening down, was thaaat good, and they'll be back this year. 

In addition to Kaboudi, there will be plenty of other diversions:  Various dance bands and musical performances;  Shutterbooth to snap pictures of you with your nearest and dearest; a tarot card reader to tell your fortune; face painters to adorn your visage (or something else)....

This year's Party is particularly special; it marks the 120th birthday of Reading Terminal Market.  To commemorate this milestone, the party will have a Victorian theme, with ambient entertainers dressed in period costumes.

We'll see you there--don't forget to book your tickets!
