What’s a FlashMeal?

NewboldCDC is starting a new fun project to promote restaurants in Newbold and West Passyunk. We’re calling it a FlashMeal (TM!).  It’s a hybrid of a ‘flash mob’ and meal. Every month we will pick a restaurant to show them our support and promote them in the neighborhood.

The first FlashMeal will be at Indonesia at 7:00 PM on Tuesday, July 16th.

Indonesia is at 1725 Snyder Ave. It’s a BYOB. (Don’t worry, I called them and gave them the heads up that we are coming.) Here’s the Yelp page.

We will be promoting these FlashMeals every month via Twitter and Facebook so be sure to *LIKE* and *FOLLOW* us at:

Other restaurants on the shortlist are:

Miss Rachel’s Pantry
Sky Cafe

Dati’s Homemade Water Ice
Cafe Chocolate
Hibachi 2 Go

We are totally open to suggestions for more, and of course we can always go back to our faves! Please email us from our contact page here with suggestions.

I hope you can join us on Tuesday at 7:00 at Indonesia!
