In the spirit of the impending weekend, restaurants, performance halls, attractions and more are presenting high-spirited events for all to enjoy.

Exciting news! Pizza Brain and Little Baby’s are teaming up tonight to present the first-ever Third Thursdee event, a night of collaboration, free beer and inspired food. The evening event calls upon one popular Philadelphia eatery to help prepare pizza and ice cream specials. Tonight’s guest is the well-loved taco truck, Calle del Sabor.

Earlier this month, International House Philadelphia debuted a groundbreaking film series, Free to Love: The Cinema of the Sexual Revolution, and tonight, ushers in guests for a series of short films relating to the sexual revolution of the ’60s and ’70s.

For those looking for offbeat fun, head to The Trocadero Theatre for a unique show as RuPaul’s Drag Race: Battle of the Seasons takes the stage. Members from past season’s of the show go head-to-head in a showgirl competition.
