On a day that won’t have you thinking about hanging outdoors, it might be nice to know about some outdoor events that are less than a month away. The Porch at 30th Street Station has announced its April programming. Formerly a parking lane and barren sidewalk, The Porch is now a urban planning success story. Here are the University City District’s food and drink related plans for the month of April.

Imagine a venue with great food, high traffic, ample space, an outdoor patio, and magnificent views of the city skyline and river. A place like that is an impossible find, it’s an ideal to most restaurateurs, and one that’s usually only found in their imaginations. It exists, though, and it’s looking to be filled.
University City District and The Porch at 30th Street is calling all vendors, all mobile eateries, all meals on wheels, to be a part of their upcoming season, to up the ante on a property that has completely revamped itself from a place that once was just a bunch of parking spots. Last year, those that parked at the Porch found themselves in a very lucrative position, both physically and financially. Once a week, in only three hours, 2-4 trucks sold over 250 meals—those are busy-restaurant numbers.

Looks like the always busy Jose Garces is in town this week for a good cause. This Thursday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Garces and his restaurants will be making an appearance at The Porch at 30th Street Station to support Philabundance. Five of the Iron Chef’s restaurants will be represented at The Porch. For a $10 donation to Philabundance event goers will be treated to samples from Amada, Chifa, Distrito, Guapos Tacos, and JG Domestic. What’s more, Garces himself will be doing a cooking demonstration at the event from noon to 1 p.m.

If you haven’t heard of The Porch at 30th Street Station, don’t feel like you’re suddenly losing touch with everything that’s current on the city’s stuff-to-do beat. If you were to poll 100 Philadelphians, I’d bet that one, maybe two, would be able to identify The Porch as the new community gathering space developed on the lot on the south side of 30th Street Station. While there was much to-do in in the press in advance of the grand opening earlier this month, the name of the project – selected from a crowd-sourcing contest — had not yet been announced. After the event, there was no reporting on the winning entry. Sort of points to how events-driven our city’s media is, doesn’t it?
So, what, after this long intro, does this have to do with food? What this has to do with food, dear readers, is that tomorrow, there will be free food and food-related activities at The Porch. From 11am-1pm, the first of many festivals is taking place, and organizers know the best way to get anyone to an event is to offer free food.
