2013 Groundhog Day Hawaiian Shirt Beer Breakfast

What: Social Gathering

When: Saturday - February 02, 2013 @ 07:00AM to Saturday - February 02, 2013 @ 01:00PM

Where: The Grey Lodge Pub, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
We Pennsylvanians believe very strongly in rodent based weather forecasting, so we assemble at The Grey Lodge every Groundhog Day at 7am to catch Punxsutawney Phil's prognostication.

To chase away the winter blues, we wear our best/worst Hawaiian shirts and have a Beer Breakfast. Later in the morning we kick off more oddity as Groundhog Day turns into Lucky Cat Day. Lucky Cat Day features Wissinoming Winnie's Beer Prognostication and other fun stuff.
