    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.

    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.
