I’ve always been a super planned out person. Planners are very important to me, and I do really well when I know what my week looks like before it even begins. Sure, sometimes this inclination does make me feel slightly like a crazy person, but hey, I work with what I got.
In honor of the email I just sent to several of my closest Philly friends filled with “upcoming dates of fun,” I wanted to share some things I’m excited for in the coming months.
Philly Improv Theater
I’ve never really been one to suggest going to see a comedy show. I get all the laughs I need from current TV shows and Chris Farley SNL reruns, thank you very much. But, from the few shows I’ve seen so far, PHIT (2030 Sansom Street) is different and fun. Improv shows are about an hour long, cost under $10, and are BYOB. They are sometimes awkward, but mostly hysterical, and perfect for an easy, cheap night out with your pals.
Talula’s Secret Supper Club
I am embarrassed to say I’ve never tried any of the Talula’s staples in this city. So when I saw the email come out for their spring supper club, I knew it was time to give it a try. Talula’s Daily (208 West Washington Square) offers a monthly dinner menu, and describes the experience as “kind of like sitting in the kitchen and eating a home cooked meal (without any clean-up + with a private Chef)!” They also work with Anthropologie for the tablescape, so, you know it will be lovely. I have a reservation in April for this delicious menu – can’t wait!
When I first saw Eater post about Flight Market, I thought it was too good to be true. But lo and behold, a Sunday afternoon at the Linc filled with food trucks, a flea market, and potential Eagles sightings is real. You can buy tickets for $12 until March 31st, and then start praying with me that some of these guys will make an appearance.
Dashboard Confessional & Third Eye Blind Concert
Sneaking in one day before spring turns to summer is this little Festival Pier gem of a show. Tickets are a bit more than I’d like, but these two groups were a huge part of my adolescent years, and it’s time to honor them properly. I’d mainly just like to hear Blinded and the Dashboard songs I used to add to mix CDs. Tickets are available here for $60 each.
Okay, so I’m kind of cheating on this one. I firmly believe that if you start off your birthday (month) right, only good things can come of the next year. 25 has been an extremely happy year for me, and I know a lot of that can be attributed to my last amazing month of May. So now, I need your help. I’m looking for some new and fun ways to celebrate with my buddies, and I know you all have them. Leave a comment and help a girl out!
