Event and Gold Star Park21 Jul 2011 12:03 pm

Gold Star Park’s Music in the Park series continues tonight at 7pm with the music of The Knife & Fork Band (according to their website: Too unpredictable for “folk,” too loud for “acoustic,” too unpretentious for “indie,” too complicated for “punk,” too rough for “chamber-pop,” and more band than “singer-songwriter”).

And for your eating enjoyment, the South Philly Food Co-op is sponsoring a Dessert Bake-Off:

Calling all you Betty Crockers and pastry-chef wannabees, or just lovers of chocolate and all things dessert. Bring your best sweet creation to the Gold Star Park and enter to win the first ever SPFC Dessert Throw Down – you could go down in history. A prize worthy of dessert awesomeness will be awarded.

The prize is $25 gift certificate to Fante’s. Even if you don’t win best of show, going home with a belly full of yummy treats is a good consolation prize!

The Co-op will also have volunteers available to answer your questions and accept new member-owners (so bring your checkbook).

Passing along this information from Web Start Women, a South Philly-based group of girl geeks who are learning web programming and/or starting a business.

All the important details:

What: Web Start Women’s July Startluck Picnic
When: Sunday, July 24th at 7:00pm
Where: Mario Lanza Park (Queen St. between 2nd & 3rd Sts.)
Info: At Startlucks we brainstorm, talk about current projects, and otherwise socialize in a nerdy kind of way. It’s free, low key, and there will be snacks. So if you are a woman interested in this type of thing, you should come.

If you know a woman who would love this, you should tell her about it.
