The good people at Hidden City Philadelphia are back in action: they’re relaunching a series of limited-access tours of obscure and interesting sites in Philadelphia, the first of which is a preview of the new location of super popular mobile ice cream venture Little Baby’s Ice Cream on Frankford Avenue.
After the huge success of their mobile vending endeavor (find them at Morgan’s Pier!) and location within Union Transfer, Little Baby’s expansion means yet another place to indulge in Earl Grey Sriracha, Balsamic Banana and Hawaiian Pizza frozen goodness.
The new shop is slated to open soon, but the Hidden City tour will allow members to check out the site before the rest of the public. The event is limited to 35 individuals and is only open to Hidden City Philadelphia members. Membership begins at $25/year and can be purchased at hiddencityphila.org.
The series of one-hour members-only tours will feature a variety of sites throughout Philadelphia hand-picked by Hidden City facilitators, giving guests an opportunity to explore curious and fascinating places generally closed off to the public.
Past events have included the Old Metropolitan Opera House on North Broad Street, Founders Hall at Girard College and Disston Saw Works in Tacony. Hidden City has about 80 places total in their inventory.
Stay tuned for more details on Hidden City tours that you don’t have to be a member to participate in, as well as an exciting blown-out Hidden City Festival slated for May/June 2013 celebrating lesser-known heritage sites in Philadelphia National Treasure-style.
