Aspinwall Porch Toast Anniversary

Almost a year ago, a neighbor invited the community to show their love and support for each other by raising a glass for Aspinwall’s first “porch toast.” Many of our neighbors have continued this tradition weekly throughout the pandemic. On Saturday, March 20th at 5pm, we invite all of our neighbors back out on their porches, stoops, and balconies to once again raise their glasses in a show of community strength.

We also invite you to show your love for the restaurants and businesses that mean so much to our neighborhood by shopping small and eating local. Make a purchase at a participating business below on March 20th and use your receipt to enter to win $150 in gift cards from local businesses!

Shop & Eat Local

The following businesses will be participating in a special promotion for Aspinwall residents on Saturday, March 20th during their regularly scheduled business hours. Don’t forget to mention the porch toast and ask for a receipt to use as your raffle entry. Enter to win here by March 21st at noon using your receipt.

Spread the Word

We want everyone to know about this event. Here’s how you can help:

  • Make a card and leave on a neighbor’s porch letting them know you’ll be participating and you hope to see them.
  • Share on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter or email to neighborhood friends.
  • Make your own chalk art announcement or window sign for passersby.

Make it Festive

Neighbors are encouraged to decorate their porches or create signs or chalk art with positive messages for the community (we knew you were looking for a reason to leave your holiday lights up).

Love For Local Businesses

Local businesses have always been our partner in supporting the Aspinwall community. Over the years they have helped us build a playground and provide much needed funds to our first responders. Last year alone they helped to raise $20,000 for Foxwall EMS, the Aspinwall Volunteer Fire Department and the Aspinwall Police Department.

Now it’s our turn to support them as we all do our part to keep our community safe. Many of our local retail shops and restaurants remain open for business and have adapted to provide contact-free delivery and curbside pick up. Please consider supporting the businesses who support our community!
