BABA held four Happy Hour Meet & Greets in 2017, at Clarkville, Bookers, Dock Street, and Queen of Sheba. Drawings for prizes were held at each location with winners taking home six-packs, gift certificates and BABA Bags. Gretchen Elise was the winner of a $50 Bar Tab for a group at Queen of Sheba. She’s pictured (at left) with BABA President Franchon Pryor, who pulled the winning ticket. Stay tuned for the 2018 Happy Hour locations. Business owners, be a host!
The Baltimore Avenue Business Association, (BABA), represents the businesses along the vibrant Baltimore Avenue corridor in University City, West Philadelphia. All of the businesses are easily reached by taking the Green Line 34 Trolley or by following the bike paths. You can, of course, walk or drive.
This business corridor serves the diverse West Philly community which cuts across several neighborhood associations: Cedar Park, Garden Court and Spruce Hill. The heart of the community, of course, is beloved Clark Park where everyone can be seen at one time or another. Young or old, families, students, business people, anarchists, artists, musicians and their 4-legged friends all relax and play at the park. And twice a week, the Clark Park Farmers Market is jammed with people buying fresh farm produce.
