Feel like slumming it, deliciously? Go to John’s Roast Pork, 14 E. Snyder Ave. Been a while since you been there, right? Get there before 3:30 when they turn off the grill. Then head to Bonnie’s Capistrano on 13th near Dickinson. Yeah, it’s a dive, and it’s not as weird as you think.
At 1908 E. Passyunk, you could head to Pollyodd, where they’ll be serving snow cones made with the shop’s homemade lemoncello from 5 to 7 p.m. The store is open from 1 to 9.
Also Saturday, you could pretend you’re in 1990 and go to the Wells Fargo Center to see New Kids on the Block and Boyz II Men. Tickets – they’re still available OMG! – on Stubhub were going for as low as $7 plus fees yesterday. This is not a recommendation, but hey, if we were in the right mood and drunk enough…
Buy your Dad a beer at The Industry, Reed and Moyamensing (or at least call him).
Or, if he’s a history buff or a gardener, bring him on a botanical tour of the ruins of Fort Mifflin, which is near the airport, as part of the Hidden City Festival. Free, but you need a ticket, which you can get here. 2 to 4 p.m.
