Urban Village Brewery at Schmidt’s Commons AKA Piazza

| Philly Chitchat |


Hey guys, sorry for the abbreviated posts the next few days. I was under a tight deadline as I prepared to head to a wonderful Alaskan cruise, which I am on right now. Follow me on Instagram @PhillyChitChat to see pixs as I can post as there isn’t much internet connection I hear. But in port I will post up a storm.   Thanks to Cabot Cheese for honoring me for my charity work, it’s a joy to volunteer for Komen Philly, Linda Creed, Suicide Awareness, PAWS, Philadelphia Veterans Home to name a few. Every year Cabot Cheese Foundation honors one person from every state and its territories for volunteer charity work. I try and do something for every charity that sends me a press release, or asks me for promotion, but the ones I named above are ones I donate photography services or raise money for for the past couple years, Linda Creed, Suicide Awareness Philly and Gilda’s Club I have volunteered for for nearly 7 years.  I did do a PhillyChitChat post everyday, so still pop in. Thanks

On the eve of their big opening Urban Village Brewery held a friends and press preview dinner. I arrived a tad after it started, and didn’t have time to eat but I will say that everyone I spoke with LOVED the food.
