It may have been the luck of the Irish that Philly elites and their guests were able to access Reading Terminal Market after-hours. More likely, it was the good folks of Molly Malloy's who were responsible for inviting Philly yelpers to party at their beer oasis!
All twenty-four taps were open for the evening, making for some very happy party-goers. A table covered with beautiful baskets of vegetables, courtesy of Iovine Brothers Produce, and several dips and spreads provided a fresh and snappy snack. Before long, loads of passed bites from Molly Malloy's menu were circulated through the crowd. Pulled pork sliders, Yukon Gold potato and leek soup shooters, crispy fried pickles and boneless wings were just a few of the tasty treats offered.
Guests got into the spirit of St. Patty's Eve by donning shades of emerald, ivy and jade. Fashion-forward elite Margo K flashed nine forest-green digits plus one sparkly "pot of gold nail." Work it!
The party was abuzz with conversation, but the din grew louder as the final moments of the Duke/Lehigh game ticked down. Several alumni from each university were in attendance, and the rivalry was intense. In the end, Lehigh alums were able to breathe a sigh of relief as their team etched out a win and moved to the next round of March Madness.
Yelp truly sham-rocked the house all thanks to Butch and the super cool staff at Molly Malloy's. Also, big thanks and best wishes to Yelp Philly Intern Allison B, who is taking the next step in her career!

Until next time, sláinte!
