An essential part of any festival is undoubtedly the food and drinks. At the upcoming Adult Swim Festival Block Party in the Fishtown section of Philadelphia from Friday, August 5 through Sunday, August 7, several signature food items and a limited edition beer will be featured at the event inspired by Adult Swim and its hit shows.
“When we decided to host our event in Philly, it was important to spotlight on not only local musicians and artists, but also the vendors that make the city a foodie heaven,” said Jill King, senior vice-president of marketing and partnerships for Cartoon Network and Adult Swim. “We know our fans will enjoy the Cheesesteak Pierogis.”
Several prominent food trucks will offer delicious delights to wow the crowd, including Dre’s Water Ice & Ice Cream (water ice), Calle Del Sabor (tacos), Mom Mom’s Nom Noms (Pierogies), and Dr. Wutzit’s WonderBalls (specialty dumplings).
At Punch Line Philly, fans can enjoy Doctor to Doctor Nachos featuring cheese, jalapeños, salsa, guacamole, and sour cream, or The Channel 5 Sampler offering chicken bites, cheesesteak dumplings, vegetable spring rolls, mozzarella sticks, and French fries.
At the Fillmore Philadelphia, attendees can enjoy Little Meat Wads featuring black garlic mayo, pork carnitas, roast beef, peppered pastrami, Swiss cheese, and sundried tomatoes on a brioche roll, or a Master Shake with strawberry, chocolate, salted caramel, oat milk, and vanilla soy ice cream.
At Brooklyn Bowl Philadelphia, guests can enjoy Fried Robot Chicken, a grilled chicken sandwich with cheddar cheese, thick-cut bacon, ranch dressing, lettuce, and tomato with a side of French fries, or Just Pickle Fries: fried pickles served with chipotle ranch aioli.
