There are exciting things happening every day in Philly!
Join us in our discussion of how to have a blast in the City of Brotherly Love
President’s Day is this Monday and instead of stressing about how to plan out your day, we did it for you: Enjoy Silence Dogood’s Guide to Making the Most of President’s Day.
Martin Luther King Jr. Day is an American holiday celebrating the birthday of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., who was the chief spokesman for nonviolent activism in the Civil Rights Movement, which successfully protested racial discrimination in federal and state law. Throughout the city of Philadelphia, ceremonies and service projects honor the life and legacy of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., with a day of giving back to the community through music, volunteering and education.
Broadway’s Hamilton made history in 2016.
Rich in diverse cuisine, top notch bars, art galleries and American history, Old City is Philadelphia's cultural hotbed for tourists and locals alike! It's not shocking to see a few George Washington's crossing Market Street to get pizza in full colonial get-up on a Wednesday afternoon!
Despite the 300 year gap in time, Benjamin Franklin’s Philadelphia wasn’t much different than our Philadelphia today- a city of neighborhoods with a mashup of cultural expansion, political progress, and developing sciences all converging between the Delaware and the Schuylkill Rivers. Philadelphia was a popular place back then, and like today, a cheaper and chiller option than New York City.
This week, we await a very important anniversary! No, not that special day you celebrate with your husband or wife, or the 30-year mark of the Live Aid performance that occurred here in Philadelphia… (yes that’s true). But, we look forward to celebrating the birth of our nation and its independence on July 4th!
