**UPDATE: Due to inclement weather, the Warby Parker event has been moved from Thursday, February 13 to Thursday, February 20.
This Thursday evening, join the folks of Art in the Age and Warby Parker for a peek at Art in the Age’s newly expanded — and updated — Warby Parker eyeglass section.
From 7 to 9 p.m., sip cocktails made with Art in the Age spirits and try on the vintage-inspired eyewear that inhabit the shelves of the Old City shop.
For those who are unfamiliar with Warby Parker eyewear, the concept started in a classroom at The Wharton School in our fair city of Philadelphia. Four students teamed up to debut the coolest concept in eyewear — fashion-forward glasses and sunglasses at an affordable price point.
Glasses start at, and stay around, just $95 per pair. Warby Parker employs its own designers and licensing companies to keep its prices super low and styles super high.
Plus, for every pair of glasses sold, a person in need receives a pair of eyeglasses.
Don’t need prescription glasses? No need to fear, many folks purchase Warby Parker glasses just for fashion’s sake.
Welcome Warby Parker back to its home city with this Thursday evening fete.
