    Winterfest Beerfest

     

    This weekend at the Blue Cross RiverRink WinterFest is dedicated to everyone's favorite pasttime: drinking beer. The two-day long festival will include a line up of local and regional craft brews, free beer samples, pay-as-you-go pints, live music and prizes!

    Yappy Hour Shelter Benefit

     

    The Morris Animal Refuge and The Twisted Tail are teaming up to save some shelter pets with a special happy hour event. The "Society Hill charcoal bistro and bourbon house," will be serving up specialty cocktails, happy hour menu specials, and a raffle drawing.

    Ben Frankin's Birthday Tippler's Tour

     

    This is the only event on this list that goes over the $20 or less rule, but celebrating the 311th birthday of Philadelphia's favorite Founding Father is well worth the exception. Raise a glass to the eccentric Benjamin Franklin this weekend with a special edition Tippler's Tour; hit the city with Ben himself while learning about the history of Philly's beer scene. Stops include the Victoria Freehouse, The Franklin Hotel and more!

    Cross Country Ski Clinic

     

    If you're not super busy this weekend, why not learn how to ski? Snow or shine, this program will teach guests about ski equipment, ski clubs you can join, technique, and places to ski once you've become a master. Best of all, this event is completely free (pre-registration is required however), all you need is a set of your own skis.

    Burlesque & Punk Against Trump

     

    With the upcoming inauguration, this weekend will prove to be trying times for us all; The Barbary is offering some help to get us all through it with this Friday's Burlesque and Punk Against Trump live show. With live music, burlesque routines, and a raffle drawing (with proceeds benefitting Planned Parenthood), the hope is that guests, if only for a few hours, can take their minds off of the inevitable. 

    Don't Tell Anyone (No Le Digas a Nadie) / Profiled

     

    This Friday, International House is hosting a double screening of the acclaimed and culturally informative documentaries Profiled and Don't Tell Anyone. Profiled weaves together the stories of Black and Latino mothers who have children murdered by the NYPD using America's historical context of systemic oppression and racism to tell a compelling story on police brutality and racial profiling. Don't Tell Anyone (No Le Digas a Nadie) tells the story of Angy Rivera, an undocumented immigrant, and her incredible journey from "poverty in rural Colombia to the front page of The New York Times."
