Readers asked for it.
We wanted to do it.
So it’s finally going to happen.
That’s right, PSP will
buy Philadelphia Union host our first postseason party. And you’re invited.
What: PSP’s MLS Cup viewing party
When: Saturday, December 7, 4-7 pm
Specials: $1 off all drinks
The MLS Cup final will be on the TV.
Most of the PSP crew will be there. That’s right, you can meet PSP contributors like Superstar Earl Gardner, the oh-so-telegenic Eli Pearlman-Storch, and maybe even a few secret special guests. (It’s such a secret that we don’t even know who they are yet, or even if they exist.)
For those not familiar with The 700, it’s a local pub in Northern Liberties that oozes soccer street cred. Soccer scarves adorn the walls. The bar opens early on weekends to show the early morning European games (and American football never supersedes soccer [Editor's note: At least when Ed is working]). Union tickets are typically available to whoever wants to join the 700 crew in tailgating before games. PSP’s managing editor, Ed Farnsworth, even bartends there on the side. And that cover photo? Yes, that was the reaction at The 700 when Landon Donovan scored his famous game-winner against Algeria in the 2010 World Cup.
So come on out. We’ve wanted to do this for a few years now, because we love meeting and hanging out with our readers, and reader interest was enough this year that we’re taking the shot. So … see you there?
