  • The American Swedish Historical Museum will feature the works of Austrian designer and architect Josef Frank. Even though the exhibit started on Oct. 28, there’s still time to get over there and experience the brightly colored and floral patterned art. The exhibit runs through Dec.30.

  •  Tenaya Darlington, aka Madame Fromage, is hosting a wine and cheese pairing party at 1411 S. Franklin St. for the South Philly Food Co-op from 4 to 6 p.m. The location is the home of a Co-op member. Fromage will be offering tips for cheese pairings, recipes, and creative entertaining ideas.  She recommends that participants bring something bubbly, a big-bodied red or a port/madeira or Riesling because a pairing cheese pairing station will be featured for each of those styles. Tickets are $30.


  • Enjoy some liquor drinking music at Bob and Barbara’s. What exactly is “liquor drinking music”? Every Friday night from 9:30 p.m. until 2:00 a.m. The Crowd Pleasers, a Hammond B-3 organ combo, perform live music at Bob and Barbara’s. Their music is based in jazz and they refer to it as “liquor drinking music.”
