Pachanga Vagabunda is an event series catering to what Philly loves most; food & booze, music & dance. Brainchild of Jugo Stevcic of Café Chismosa and presented by PARTYPLANT, Pachanga Vagabunda provides a dining experience as unique as the spaces that host it. With different locations and theme based meals, every Pachanga Vagabunda will be a distinctive dining and dance experience comparable to none. Each party will seduce the 5 senses through environment, taste, & sound.
Throw an event to promote amazing food, killer tunes, and enrich the masses with the excellent culture of Philly. Start slow and build momentum to bigger venues and better parties. Main goal is to get people having fun and associating that fun with our respective brands.
Pachanga Vagabunda v1.0
The first Pachanga Vagabunda was an all-you-can-eat Parrillada or Latin BBQ. We converted the outdoor courtyard space of the Reanimator Coffee Roastery into a food and music oasis amidst the Olde Kensington Industrial area. Delicacies were grilled in a grab-and-go style menu while self-serve sangria, beer and BYOB was encouraged. Marinated skirt steak, avocado chimichurri, ancho BBQ braised short rib, & crispy pork belly tacos were features of the main course while ceviche, grilled corn Mexican style, creamy jalapeno slaw, & Chismosa’s signature salsas & hot sauces were highlights of the PIKI PIKI (sides).
Throughout the evening several lawn games and activities were set up for guest along with excellent sets DJ’d by Nickodemus, The Magic Message DJ’s, DR. Juice, DJ ELEET, & LIZ&MARZ. Last year we had a $25 ticket price that covered all-you-can-eat, sangria, and beer. We had over 85 people in attendance for the Parrillada with several more attending the “after-party”, or Pachanga. We had a great set of sponsors help make Pachanga Vagabunda v1.0 become the success that it was including Red Bull, ReAnimator Coffee, Kensington Neighborhood Association, & LA Finiquita. We welcome and encourage future sponsorship with any brand that believes Philly has an amazing culture that deserves to be celebrated.
