Tavern Talks – July 13th

Friends, Scadians, Gentles of all kith!

I wanted to remind the world that we will be holding Tavern Talks in Ivyeinrust this Sunday at a pleasant pub in West Philadelphia, the City Tap House (citytaphouse.com).

NOTE TIME CHANGE: We will be meeting from 1-3 pm this month, in spite of previous advertisements. This change was necessary in view of the weather report, new circumstances at the venue, and, most of all, the World Cup match that will be starting at 4pm. We hope that this does not inconvenience anyone unduly.

We’re going to be at City Tap House, a pub/restaurant in West Philly. It is located on the north side of Walnut Street between 39th and 40th Streets, on the 2nd floor balcony of the Radian Building. Enter through the street-level door between Capo Giro and Jimmy Johns and take the elevator to the 2nd floor. It’s tucked away, but this allows them to have a whole roof worth of pleasant open-air fire pits. Please see following the main text for directions!

This month we’ll have two speakers. Baronne Sabine de Kerbriant will be talking on the topic of how to write a recommendation for a polling order. Following that, Katya Vrtis will be introducing us to Rus garment construction and its basis on triangles. I am deeply excited for each of these! Beyond this there will be time to talk, eat, drink, and socialize.

On the topic of food, it should be noted that, in view of the earlier meeting time, we’ll have access to their Brunch menu rather than their lunch/dinner menu.


there is a paid parking lot on the northwest corner of 40th & Walnut (entrance on Walnut) attached to the Fresh Grocer.

Street parking on campus is restricted for campus move out days, but there is FREE street parking (even on the major streets) once you are as far west as 42nd Street. Again, pay attention to signs for loading areas, driveways, hydrants, and other impediments to free and easy parking.

Market-Frankford line – to the 40th & Market stop. Walk 2 blocks south along Walnut.
