The Philadelphia Society for the Preservation of Landmarks (PhilaLandmarks) seeks to inspire engagement with history through preservation of unique historic sites and provides related historical, educational, and cultural programming. Founded in 1931, PhilaLandmarks has actively restored and preserved four of Philadelphia’s greatest treasures: Powel House, Grumblethorpe, Physick House, and Historic Waynesborough. The society believes in the power of historic preservation to illustrate what endures in our society, facilitating community engagement. Each of the historic properties maintained by PhilaLandmarks brings unique programs, priorities, and value to our great city.
Cartesian Brewing is at the forefront of local origin brewing in Philadelphia. They believe in farm-to-table, grower-to-glass, producer-to-pint. Cartesian Brewing was founded because of these beliefs and they remain core to the production of all their beers and ciders to this day. In fact, it is Cartesian Brewing’s hope that when you drink a glass or fill a growler with one of their products, you’ll know the name of the people who malted the grains, who grew the hops, who picked the apples, and who opened the tap.

Food Underground is the brain-child of Ari Miller. Part nomadic dinner party for hire, part pop-up culinary event, it is always tasty food. Ari’s culinary roots began during a decade spent living in Israel. Following time spent as the dining reviewer for The Jerusalem Post, he transitioned into the professional kitchen by way of a tiny, little deli connected to Tel Aviv’s The Basta. Back in America, Ari first worked at the Philadelphia main-stay Percy St BBQ before heading to the line at High Street on Market. Ari, and Food Underground, tries to manufacture opportunities to cook and host whenever possible.
