The food festival team at Stuck at The Airport perks up when airports organize events around food.
So we’re looking forward to Philadelphia International Airport‘s (PHL) week-long celebration of National Cheesesteak Day (March 24) from March 21 to March 25.
The cheesesteak party menu includes special events and freebies. There will also be cheesesteaks and cheesesteak-inspired items at more than a dozen airport eateries.
Here’s the rundown:
Cheesesteak Tasting Panel
March 22, noon-1 p.m., Chickie’s & Pete’s, D/E Connector
Four panelists, including Philadelphia Eagles’ fan favorite and Pro Football Hall of Famer Brian Dawkins, will sample items from Chickie’s & Pete’s cheesesteak menu. While they eat, they’ll chat all things Philly: cheesesteaks, football, and more. The event highlights will be shared on PHL Food & Shops’ social media and website at PHLfoodandshops.com.
Interactive tour maps, with QR codes, are displayed throughout the airport highlighting 13 PHL Food & Shops restaurants offering cheesesteaks or cheesesteak-related items.
