Questlove On The 1’s & 2’s For This Year’s Great Chefs After Party

Questlove+36th+Annual+ONE+Show+Honors+Best+Qjqcb1ggUf4lMirroring last year, Questlove will be spinning the night away at the after party for this year’s Great Chefs Event. The Grammy Award winning artist, Philadelphia native and founding member of The Roots will be blessing VIP attendees with his vivacious vinyl spins. His presence at the event is indicative of his omnipresent support of Marc Vetri and his efforts concerning the charities behind the Great Chefs Event (The Vetri Foundation for Children and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation).

The after party will be held at Alla Spina, one of Vetri’s top Philly restaurants. The event will be closing off Mount Vernon St. and allowing VIPs to taste exclusive bites form the legendary chefs themselves, giving them truly an industry insider experience. If you plan on attending this epic extravaganza, it will cost you $525 for the event and after party combination; that is, if any tickets remain!

Attendees will be hustling out of work in anticipation of the 6 p.m. start time on Tuesday, June 10, at the Navy Yard. General Admission tickets for the event will run you $350, not including the after party. You can buy tickets here.

Simple Super Bowl Snacks


Having a Super Bowl party and stuck on snack ideas? No worries, we have got you covered. We’ve created a list of simple party ideas from our personal favorite restaurants that are guaranteed to leave your guests craving for more. And the best part? You don’t have to lift a finger in the kitchen.

For all you pizza lovers, pick up a few tomato pies from Santucci’s Square Pizza to add some spunk to your fiesta. With its thick bready crust and a generous layer of tomato sauce, Santucci’s is sure treat your taste buds well.  Pizza Brain offers innovative topping combinations, giving guests something new to try. The menu proudly boasts a Kira Tierston, a red pie with mozzarella, smoked bacon, hint of brown sugar, red onion, and oven-roasted brussels sprout. Talk about a combination!

It is a little known fact that no Super Bowl party is complete without sandwiches. A crowd favorite, sandwiches are easy to eat and fill hungry tummies. We recommend serving platters of hoagies or grilled veggie combos. Sarcone’s Deli or Primo Hoagies are great places to pick up a few. Just unwrap and serve!

This year, spice up your Super Bowl party with falafel balls. Stop by Mama’s Vegetaria or the Falafel Bar to find large portions of these delicious, fried vegetarian fritters. Falafel balls are versatile as they can be dressed up into sandwich using pita bread or can be topped over lettuce and tomatoes to make a salad. If you are looking to keep it simple, you can serve the deep-fried balls solo. A favorite dish among vegetarians, you’d definitely make a statement with this snack.

Take a bite out of the wings from Fox and the Hound or Federal Donuts. Between these two eateries, you are sure to find what you are looking for. If you want to serve wings with traditional sauces (mild, BBQ, spicy garlic, etc.) then Fox and the Hound is your go-to. For wings with a funkier appeal, check out Federal Donuts for its seasonings and glazes of coconut curry, za’atar, or honey ginger.

Be sweet and leave your guests some room for dessert. Why waste game time throwing a pie into the oven when you can get your sugary treats from one of the city’s finest bakeries? Isgro’s Pastries and the Swiss Haus Bakery both offer delectable delights of cakes, cookies, and assorted pastries. Watch your guests’ mouths water as they dig into these irresistible delicacies.

There you have it. A snack menu with winning Super Bowl party foods. Have fun and enjoy the game!

During the tour participants stop at a fortune cookie factory, a Chinese herbal medicine shop, a Chinese bakery, an Asian grocery store, a fish market, and more.
