The #whyilovephilly Party

Media Title

Philadelphians are rarely bashful when it comes to civic pride. The adoration for this place youze guys call home goes much deeper than cheesesteaks and soft pretzels: The green awnings draped over South Philly rowhomes on a tiny side street; the gut-warming, readily-available special at the neighborhood bar; your grizzly neighbor’s penchant to gripe how “it’s gonna be a rough winter” on the first 30-degree night—Philadelphia’s minutia endear its residents to the place. Thankfully, Phillyites love to express their affection, giving #whyilovephilly its raison d’être.

Co-started by Indy Hall and Young Involved Philadelphia, #whyilovephilly began circa Valentine’s Day 2011 as a mission to spread cheer, positivity and a bit of hometown snobbery. Since then, the hashtag has taken a life of its own, used daily on various forms of social media by locals to express said adoration. This week, it’ll morph into a full-on First Friday soiree when a host of Philly-centric agencies and businesses team up for the #whyilovephilly Party at the Hamilton Family Arts Center (the Arden Theatre Company’s newest Old City outpost).

Come leave a Philly Love Note and transform your #whyilovephilly tweets into written word. Area food, drink and music will fortify the night’s revelry, and rumor has it that Little Baby’s Ice Cream will be debuting a Philly-themed flavor—which alone is cause for cartwheels. / DANIEL GELB
