Women’s Way WednesdaysA WEEKLY POP-UP BENEFITING WOMEN’S WAY AND SISTERLY LOVE COLLECTIVEIn honor of March being Women’s History Month, Stratus Rooftop Lounge and Sisterly Love Collective have teamed up for the second year to present Women’s Way Wednesdays, a weekly pop-up celebrating various women-owned and operated culinary and beverage purveyors, as well as musicians, in the Philadelphia region and beyond. 

Each week will host a different chef presenting thoughtfully curated small bites in addition to cocktails, brews, global wines, and pastries, plus live entertainment and an interactive meet & greet with featured chefs. 

AboutWomen’s Way Wednesdays brings together the Philadelphia area’s top-tier culinary and beverage talent to celebrate their talent and standing success, but also to benefit Women’s Way, Philadelphia’s leading nonprofit organization dedicated to the advancement of women, girls, and gender and racial equity, as well as Sisterly Love Collective, an alliance of women across the Philadelphia region banding together to empower and advance women in the food and hospitality space through mentorship, networking, and communal support. 

Profits from Women’s Way Wednesday's ticket sales will benefit both Women’s Way and Sisterly Love Collective. Additionally, $1 from every wine featured on our sister restaurant and bar Red Owl Tavern’s Women in Wine menu and cocktail featured on the Women’s Way Wednesdays menu at Stratus Rooftop Lounge will benefit Sisterly Love Collective. 

Culinary & Live Music Line-Up

For the first three Wednesdays, from March 6 through March 20, tickets will be priced at $35 per person and includes an exquisite variety of one-of-a-kind bites, one complimentary cocktail, and additional beverages available for purchase à la carte. 

Tickets for the Sisterly Love Collective finale, held on Wednesday, March 27, will be $75 per person, all-inclusive, and include two beverage tickets, as well as complimentary wine and beer tastings.
