It’s the sweetest time of the year! Girl Scout cookie season is upon us and, like many other things in Manayunk, the neighborhood makes this festive time of year a community-wide celebration.
Through the entire month of February, celebrate all things Girl Scout cookies with Cookie Month. Held at locations all along Main Street, just steps from your The Isle apartment, the occasion features specially crafted dishes made with the sweet treats, a contest where locals can pick which spot has the most creative cookie concoction and a number of conveniently located tables for all of your cookie-purchasing needs.
Here are a few of the ways to celebrate Cookie Month in Manayunk:
Buy Girl Scout Cookies: Local youngsters will be out in force selling their goods—and Manayunk residents are sure to gobble them up! Tables will be staged at several spots on certain days and times throughout the month, including at locations like Manayunk Development Corporation, less than one block from your The Isle apartment. Check the schedule at the MDC website and make a plan for where to grab a box (or five!).
Dine at a Cookie Month Partner: Local eateries are getting in on the fun with creative dishes and drinks inspired by Cookie Month. Past creations have included chocolate mousse with lemonade cookie crumbs and Thin Mint S’mores—with toasted marshmallow layered between everyone’s favorite Girl Scout cookie! Past years have included cookie and wine pairings, and even a full Cookie Month sundae from Tubby Robot, one block from your The Isle apartment. Make sure to stop into local eateries and watering holes along Main Street and beyond to satisfy your sweet tooth. Once you’ve tried all the offerings from participating partners, you can cast your votes for your favorites so they can have some serious cookie cred.
While Cookie Month is a fun way for the local community to come together, it also has a philanthropic purpose: A portion of all proceeds from each of the participating Cookie Month dishes will be donated to the Girl Scouts of Eastern Pennsylvania—so get out there sipping and snacking. After all, it’s all for a good cause!
