EVENT: Sodas with The Citizen and Connor Barwin

While some retailers and restauranteurs are up in arms over Philly’s new soda tax, Chris Fetfatzes and Heather Annechiarico (owners of Hawthornes, the Cambridge, and Tio Flores) are using it as an opportunity to fundraise for their neighborhood elementary school by matching and then donating sweetened-beverage tax revenue to Jackson Elementary.

Join The Philadelphia Citizen, and Eagles defensive end and Make The World Better Foundation founder Connor Barwin, on Wednesday evening for a happy hour in support of this initiative. The Cambridge will feature soda-based drink specials—and when you sign up for The Citizen’s mailing list or membership, we’ll buy you a drink!

The Philadelphia Citizen will only publish thoughtful, civil posts. We want to be a communal space. But that doesn’t mean you have a First Amendment right to be an idiot. Send us an insulting, offensive and/or wildly off-topic comment and not only will we refrain from posting it -- we will laugh at you before we hit delete.
