Celebrate romance this Thursday, July 25 with the Young Friends of the National Museum of American Jewish History.
In honor of Tu B’Av, commonly known as the Jewish holiday of love, the museum hosts a glamorous evening of drinks, food, music and fine fashion for the young people of Philadelphia.
The festivities begin at 7 p.m. on the fifth floor of the museum and, for a breath of fresh air and lovely views, extend out to the terrace which overlooks Independence Mall.
The event, a Mole Street production, includes an evening-long open bar with kosher cocktails from Catoctin Creek Distilling Company in addition to beer and wine. Pair libations with dessert from Betty the Caterer, fondue and tunes from — how appropriate — DJ Handsome Sam.
Put your fashion foot forward — guests are encouraged to dress in their most stylish white attire to commemorate the history of Tu B’Av. Historically, the unmarried girls of Jerusalem would dress in white and dance in the vineyards on the holiday.
Tickets are $18 for members and $30 for non-members. Tickets are available online.
For those looking to become a member of the Young Friends, a special deal prevails in association with this event. For $55, receive an event ticket and a one-year NMAJH Young Friends Membership.
