Historic Neighborhood Nights: Happy Hour & Cornhole at the Powel House

This event has ended.
Please visit our Events page for information about our upcoming events.

Wednesday, August 2, 2017 from 5:30PM to 8:30PM

Part of Philadelphia’s unparalleled museum and cultural community?  Burnt out from a busy schedule of summer activities and programs?  Philadelphia’s Historic Neighborhood Consortium (PHNC) has just the thing to rejuvenate your spirits – beer, cornhole, pizza, and history!

Join PHNC for the first in a series of laidback happy hours created specifically for members of the Philadelphia museum and cultural community – this time in the beautiful Powel House garden. Have a few drinks (if you want), network (if you want), eat some pizza (who wouldn’t want to?), enter the Cornhole tournament* (if you want). Take a stroll through the Historic House or simply relax and enjoy the ambiance of August in the garden.

Your $15 ticket gets you:  lots of pizza, lots of beer, lots of snacks, access to the Powel House, and something to do on a Wednesday in Old City that doesn’t cost a million dollars.

Doors open at 5:30PM. 

Cornhole tournament will start at 6:15PM.

Champions will be crowned (no actual crowns, though–I mean, we fought a Revolution and wrote a Constitution to make sure there wouldn’t be crowns here).

The happy hour ends at 8:00PM.

*Cornhole Tournament – The tournament is a friendly competition for attendees.  Please indicate when registering if you are interested in participating.  Teams of two (2) will be randomly drawn from the list and added to the bracket – don’t be scared, this isn’t (very) serious. Bracket is single elimination. House rules (Powel House rules?) prevail.  Prize for 1st place is bragging rights in the Historic District.

RAIN DATE:  August 9.  (If it rains then, too, we will give you the option to transfer your ticket to the September Happy Hour or to make a generous donation to the PHNC.)


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?

Yep.  Please bring a photo ID.  The event is open to guests aged 21+.

How can I contact the organizer with any questions?

Glad you asked!  You can e-mail Events.PHNC@gmail.com.  Please DO NOT contact the Powel House with any questions.
