Old Man Winter continues his extended stay in the northeast this weekend, but don’t let Arctic temperatures prevent getting out into the city to enjoy some wintertime relaxation and entertainment.
There are tons of indoor happenings on tap this weekend from an amazing exhibition opening at The Barnes Foundation and a gala concert at the Academy of Music to dining deals in Center City and a Robert Burns-themed whiskey tasting in University City.
Remember, take care to stay warm in the cold and watch out for an afternoon snow squall on the way this Saturday. Be safe, stay cozy and enjoy the winter wonderland!
