Keen, Graduate Hospital’s approachable neighborhood restaurant and bar, is pleased to launch its monthly moon event series with the Super Blue Blood Full Moon Party on Tuesday,January 30 from 7 p.m. to 2 a.m. with celestial drink specials, neon face painting, tarot card readings and more to celebrate the rare astrological phenomenon.
The Super Blue Blood Full Moon is considered a lunar trifecta, because of the combination of a blue moon (the second occurrence of a full moon in one calendar month), supermoon (a full moon at the closest point of its orbit around the planet) and a total lunar eclipse or “blood moon” (the occurrence of Earth’s shadow upon the moon’s surface to give a reddish tint). In celebration of the rare celestial manifestation, Keen is launching its monthly full moon event series.
“The appearance of a Super Blue Blood Full Moon is so incredibly rare, it only occurs every 265 years,” said Keen Owner Caitlin Rorer. “What better way to kick-off our monthly moon series than with this rare lunar trifecta?”
Moon partygoers will enjoy drink specials including bottles of rosé and sparkling wine ($30), 5 bottle-buckets of Miller High Life ($14), Champagne jello shots ($2) and Bar Manager Tom Danks’ celestial creation, Blood Moon Cocktail with Aperol and basil infused tequila, blood orange and topped with Brut Rosé ($9).
In addition to Chef Antonella Biundo’s menu, guests can dine on Moon Balls, risotto and root vegetable stuffed fried balls served with celery and sage pesto ($8).
Keen’s upstairs eclectic bar will transform into a supernatural haven with dimmed lights and cosmic-themed music to ring in the full moon. Attendees can receive complimentary neon face painting and experience a tarot card reading from Philadelphia-based Reiki Master and Artist Mackenzie Flynn for $15 on a first come, first serve basis.
Keen is located at 1708 Lombard Street, Philadelphia PA.
