Raise a glass to the final weekend of Philly Wine Week, a debut event that took the city by storm with dozens of events every day of the festival. The wine-centric event ends on Sunday, March 30, but not before treating the city to game nights, tasting events, wine dinners, happy hours and a closing party at Alla Spina.
The Philadelphia Museum of Art gets the party started with a K-Pop dance party and fashion show in celebration of its current marquee exhibition, Treasures from Korea: Arts and Culture of the Joseon Dynasty, 1392-1910. New York-based dance troupe, I Love Dance, leads the night with a live performance, mini-dance class followed by a K-Pop dance party. How’s that for a unique Friday night?
The South Street Headhouse District relaunches its popular Fourth Friday event complete with happy hour specials, shopping sales, boutique parties, art openings and much more. The festivities run from Lombard to Queen streets on 4th Street.
