Blessedly, the forecast calls for a nice, dry weekend, so get out there!
Friday, Saturday and Sunday
– Head to Theatre Exile for the last weekend of The Philly Fan. Three shows this weekend, $35 a ticket, but you can get the neighbor discount if you just ask for it. They’ll also have at least one food truck outside and a special guest speaker, depending on the day. Check out the lineup here. (Exile is one of our advertisers, by the way. You can be too by clicking here!)
– Also all weekend, the Phillies are in town, and it will be a beautiful weekend for baseball. Get some standing room tickets for $17 a piece for 7:05 tonight, 4:05 tomorrow or 1:35 Sunday. And head to that new Federal Donuts stand that we told you about a couple months back.
– Philadelphia Sculptors is holding a closing reception and auction for an exhibit at U Arts called Pinned, with sculptures mostly made out of bowling pins. Yeah, it sounds a little weird, but hey, they say there will be free refreshments. 4-7 p.m., Dorrance Hamilton Hall, 320 S. Broad St.
– For your family-friendly cultural fix, you can either head to the American Swedish Musuem for their summer festival (1900 Pattison Ave., $7 for adults, $4 for kids) or to the Vietnamese summer festival by the group Boat People SOS (6th Street from Washington to Ellsworth, free).
Saturday and Sunday
Further afield, you can take the Regional Rail to the great Northwest for the Manayunk Arts Festival, the largest juried art show in the region (300 artists, vendors, food trucks, etc.) Free to walk around.
