    Date Night

     

    If Ghost is on your list of favorite movies, then this couples' class might be just the thing for you! Join The Clay Studio on Fridays through March 27 for their Date Night event, a fun night of pottery, beer, snacks and good vibes. While this event is slightly over $25, we at PFG believe it's well worth the money.

    2020 PHS Flower Show: Riviera Holiday

     

    What better place to take a date than to the hottest ticket in Philadelphia - the PHS Flower Show! The nation's largest and longest-running horticultural event returns for another year with the theme "Riviera Holiday." Spend the day around gorgeous Meditterranean-inspired displays, enjoy food and drink from various vendors, learn something new with live demonstrations and even take some plants home for yourself. 

    POPS Rocks Phil Collins

     

    Do you feel that coming in the air tonight?! That's the sounds of Phil Collins from the stage of the Philly POPS - join the POPS for a rocking weekend in March as they explore the catalog of Phil Collins and Genesis at the Merriam Theater. Guaranteed to blow your date's mind!*
