Hidden City’s New Members-Only Tour Hits Little Baby’s Ice Cream Pre-Opening

 

Hidden City is offering the first of several special one-off, limited-access, free, Members Only tours of intimate sites of interest around the city–architecture firms, newly renovated historic buildings, and other places we find curious and interesting. These short tours will last approximately one hour. Hidden City staff will partner with site managers, architects, planners, artists, and other folks as facilitators of these experiences. These gatherings may be announced with relatively short notice and entry will be limited to our members.

Accessibility: There may be accessibility issues at many sites. Due to the nature of these kinds of spaces, the quantity and grade of steps will vary from site to site. “Stairs are inevitable.” Due to the condition of some sites, airborne dust may be present as well.

July 11, 2011 7PM
Little Baby’s Preview 2311 Frankford Ave

LIMITED FREE TICKETS AVAILABLE – This event is limited to the first 35 members who sign up. Members will receive an email with a link to reserve their space.

Little Baby’s Ice Cream produces hand-made super-premium ice cream and non-dairy frozen yogurt. Originally begun as a tricycle mobile-vending multimedia operation, a new ice cream shop is imminently planned to open. After an extensive renovation of a 19th century Fishtown building, Philadelphia-based artists designed a unique interior. Come visit the shop prior to its opening and see its transformation.

Thank you for your support of Hidden City. Look for a series of tours and other Hidden City events to be announced in early August. For our complete round-up of new development on Frankford Avenue in Fishtown, click HERE.
