It's Cancer season! Typically characterized as a season of self-reflection, deep emotional exploration and this year in particular, two Mercury Retrogrades. Break up some of the blahs of this season with a fun burlesque show! Crabaret is an ode to this time of year, with all the performers being, of course, Cancers.
Spend some time together and immerse yourselves in Swedish culture all at the same time. On Saturday, July 27, join the American Swedish Historical Museum for their annual SmorgasBeer festival. Head to FDR Park for a fun day of sampling regional and international beers, trying traditional Swedish food and even a raffle drawing! This goes over our $25 rule, but we think it's worth it.
With a line-up of Philadelphia musicians whose influences range from Sun Ra to Bulgarian brass bands, the West Philadelphia Orchestra is bound to get you on your feet! Head over to Franky Bradley’s on Tuesday nights for a midweek date night full of dancing and blistering beats.
