Show Your Love for Reading Terminal Market

January 31, 2012

The Valentine to the Market Gala fundraiser is just under a month away.  This spectacular out of hours party on Saturday, February 25th, at the Reading Terminal Market features live music, entertainment and food provided by some of the best known names in the Market including Bassetts, DiNics, and Beck’s, of course.

This year, the party is expected to be even more memorable because it coincides with the Market’s 120th birthday.  Come toast the Market’s good health with a pint of the anniversary stout specially created by Philadelphia Brewing Co. to mark the occasion.

To make your evening extra special, consider buying a ticket to the Patrons’ Party, which includes access to the cook-off by celebrity chefs, including our very own Bill Beck of Beck’s Cajun Cafe! 

Each chef works with a celebrity sous-chef under the spotlight  to drum up a dish from ingredients provided by the Market.  To keep it interesting, the chefs have to integrate   added ‘mystery” ingredients announced  the night of the Gala —  it gets pretty tense!  Last year’s mystery ingredients were red hot candies, heart shaped marshmallows and coco-puffs.

Philly Chit Chat did a great feature on last year’s party here.

To buy tickets for this one of a kind Gala and show your love for Reading Terminal Market, go to:

See you there! BB

Beck’s Cajun Hosts Halloween at RTM — Article in Philadelphia Magazine

September 22, 2010
Thank You Philly Mag!
Music, ghost stories, and great food are all part of the event, which combines Cajun traditions and a touch of voodoo magic. Internationally acclaimed singer/storyteller Kent Courtney will reprise his role as pirate Jean Lafitte, performing the music and telling the tales of swampland Louisiana. Visitors will also get to meet the Swamp Man, the Voodoo Lady, and a bevy of zombies and skeletons. There will also be free mask-making for the kids, as well as a costume contest. Visitors who come in costume and will each receive a free trio of pralines. Of course, Beck’s will offer plenty of devilishly delicious Cajun/Creole favorites, including beignets, jambalaya, dirty rice and a giant cauldron of gumbo. There will also be a good, old-fashioned eating contest, featuring Beck’s world-famous bread pudding. A portion of the proceeds of the event will be donated to the New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity to assist with the important task of rebuilding the Crescent City.
