Where to park

From their website:
What kind of beer do you serve?
We have an ever shifting beer list of selections that either move us currently or we are simply rekindling a romance with. While it seems dizzying to select what to serve in such an overcrowded market we tend to stick with great beer made by even better people. We try desperately to stay away from trends, but revel in relying on craftsmanship and good business practices to help us make our decisions. While rare beer is a lot of fun to serve and drink we tend to pour the most sought after offerings on a Monday afternoon as opposed to squirreling away one keg and centering a whole event around it. No, quite frankly we would rather be good hosts and allow our guests to sit back, relax, and enjoy their beer unmolested by the hordes.
What if I hate beer? Am I still allowed in?
We offer wine by the glass and by the bottle. No fancy foolery, it’s a wine list Jonathan Richman would approve: accessible, and meant to be enjoyed, not dicussed. We also have a full bar.
How do I get to the Memphis Taproom?
You can find us at the intersection of Memphis Street and E. Cumberland Street on the border of the Port Richmond and Fishtown neighborhoods of Philly, in the Kensington section of the city.
Holly Trostle Brigham (b. 1965), Tamara de Lempicka: On Autopilot, 2009, watercolor on paper, 29 1/2 x 29 1/2 in. Collection of the artist.
The Smith College Club of Philadelphia is pleased to announce an artist gallery talk with Holly Trostle Brigham ’88. Join fellow Smith alumnae on Saturday, April 23, 2016 at 2pm at the Michener Museum. Your ticket includes museum admission, Holly’s talk about her exhibit “Sisters and Goddesses,” a chamber music concert, and light refreshments.
At 2pm PAFA-trained and Philadelphia-based artist Holly Trostle Brigham will discuss the seven self-portraits in which she assumes the guise of artists of the past—such as Frida Kahlo, Artemesia Gentileschi, and Tamara de Lempicka—to remind us of their important stories. Brigham also looks to her academic past as a student at Smith, one of the “seven sisters,” connecting those “sisters” with her own life through these portraits.
Then, at 3pm internationally-acclaimed violinist Lenuta Ciulei and cellist/conductor Dr. George Antanasiu will perform a pop-up chamber concert in support of “Holly Trostle Brigham: Sisters and Goddesses.”
Following the concert, light refreshments will be served.
Please RSVP to email@example.com. Please let us know if you need a ride or are able to offer a carpool ride to the event.
