Keen Kicks Off Monthly Moon Series with Super Blue Blood Full Moon Party

Keen Rittenhouse Square

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.
