Reason #10 To Do The South Philly Garden Tour

10. Hopefully you know about the after party by now but did you also know about all the food and drink specials that will be available from other businesses throughout the day? Tour participants can get a free homemade cookie from Black and Brew, a free small coffee or tea at Grindcore House, dollar off drafts and menu items at Second Street Brew House and half off drafts at P.O.P.E. And at least one of the gardens might be using the tour as a way to use all the mint he's been growing this year. Mint Juleps or Mojitos, anyone?
