Philly Chili Bowl 2014: The Ukie Club


As usual, we at BigBite Philly like to have events in spaces that are characteristic of the vibrant, fun loving, culture seeking Philadelphia foodies that our events attract. This in mind, Philly Chili Bowl 2014 will be held at the Ukranian American Citizen’s Organization aka the Ukie Club, aka the place that incubated Diplo’s and Philly Chili Bowl DJ Low Budget’s (!!) Hollertronix party and catapulted them to superstardom, aka where M.I.A. performed numerous times aka where turntable titans Emynd and Bo Bliz rocked the house with Peedie Crakk aka an extremely friendly, warm space to eat dance and fellowship with awesome people!!

The Ukie has a lot of history and is sure to spark nostalgia for veterans of the Philly party scene. It is also centrally located at 847 N. Franklin Street with plenty of street and lot parking. It really is a cozy, homegrown establishment that gives us a little more space to eat and move our feet!!! We can’t wait to see you there March 23rd!!!

BigBite The Hunger Mixtape Vol 1 – Songs About Food by Crossfadedbacon on Mixcloud

Holy smokes! It’s official – we have our 1st ever BigBite soundtrack!!

Our good friend Emynd from one of our favorite sponsors – Crossfaded Bacon was kind enough to put together this amazing hour-long seemless mix of amazing songs all about food (or loosely related to food). We are SO DANG EXCITED ABOUT THIS MIX! IT’S OUR FIRST OFFICIAL MIXTAPE! Forty songs about food? And of course, the mix features our anthem “Still Hungry” by the Paxtons featuring BigBite friend, Sleep.

The kicker is that Emynd told us he’s hype to work on Volume 2 because he has 30-40 songs ready in the vault. So be on the lookout for Volume 2 coming sometime around the next Wing King V. But in the mean time, listen to this mix while you’re killing time at work, when you’re on your next road-trip, or when cooking dinner with your boo!
