This is a FREE public event to attend on Saturday October 22nd, 12pm - 6pm. We will be utilizing Annie Alley to showcase the craft of traditional and modern punches. Enjoy 10 punch stations serving all different signature punches as well as a few traditional punches dating back to George Washington! Punch can be traced to 17th century British sailors, to the great Charles Dickens and his house parties, and to our founding fathers whom served it at the signing of the declaration of independence afterparty! (P.S. they drank 76 punch bowls that night!) From the famous Philadelphia Fish House Punch to our signature Novela house punch, Hemingway's CODE HERO, and a few new special Punch on the Block punches, there's tradition in every cup.

Purchase a pre-sale All-You-Can-Drink tasting ticket and get to experience ALL the punches available and receive a Punch on the Block commemorative cup!
