Maybe you meditate. Maybe you smoke. Maybe you drink a little. Or maybe you do yoga. However you choose to relax, we guarantee that we’re all going to need it two days post-election, which is why Relaxation is the theme of this month’s EdgeCase.
Hear about how four companies play a role in this relaxation economy, including: Floatation Philly, a sensory deprivation float center in Fishtown; Green Philly Blog, a sustainability media outlet talking about “green relaxation”; Federal Distilling, makers of Philly’s finest Stateside Vodka; and Highjinx, a multiweedia marketing agency specializing in advertising and branding for the cannabis industry.
Bonus! J2 Design will provide a multi-sensory relaxation experience to complement the talks beginning with Amrita Yoga and Wellness leading the entire audience through breathing exercises.

Matt + Bryan Quigley, Federal Distilling and Stateside Urbancraft Vodka
“The craft-brewing industry has been booming in Philly. But craft distilling is appearing in its rearview mirrors with a moment of its own — the first time since Prohibition, really, that people have been starting up liquor projects in empty Fishtown warehouses, abandoned gas stations, and their parents’ basement in Ambler, as Matt and Bryan Quigley did four years ago when they decided one day that they wanted to produce vodka. After early tumult — namely, being kicked out of the basement — the two brothers went on to hone their vodka-producing craft, officially opening Stateside Urbancraft Vodka about a year ago.” – Thrillist
Russ Stewart from Flotation Philly
Flotation Philly is a sensory deprivation float center in Fishtown, Philadelphia. Flotation Philly’s goal is to help you float away from it all in peace and comfort. Floating is a scientifically proven tool that helps your body uncover its ability to rest, relax, recover and rebalance. This type of sensory deprivations touches all areas of your physical, mental and emotional well-being. It starts with eliminating all external sensory information you mind & body are processing. This triggers a rush of endorphins that ease your thoughts, massage your muscles and relax your spine. While floating you will feel free from all of life’s distractions, allowing you the mental clarity that you never thought possible.
