Celebrate Solstice in Philadelphia
Great tips for tonight in Philadelphia from our friends at the Bozzuto Group. They have several great properties in the city, including 1500 Locust in Center City, and 1830 Lombard in the Graduate Hospital neighborhood.
If you want to celebrate the longest day of the year today, here’s what they suggest:
The Dirt Factory is an innovative new community project that kicks off on June 20. Their goal is to turn use food waste from local restaurants and businesses into high quality organic compost for gardening use.
The public is invited to tour the new site at the grand opening celebration on the first day of summer, Wednesday, June 20 from 4-6pm. Complimentary food and drinks will be provided from local restaurants Dock Street Brewing Co., Little Baby’s Ice Cream, and Four Worlds Bakery will be served along with live bluegrass music from Sour Mash.
But no need to be done after that, so head to the Penn Museum of Archaeology and Anthropology for their 3rd annual P.M. @ Penn Museum Summer Nights Series, a great place to be exposed to culture and a vibrant social scene all at the same time.
P.M. @ Penn Museum Summer Nights provides musical entertainment and an after-work happy hour destination that’s delightfully outdoors. Middle Eastern folk and rock fusion sounds of Barakka, a Philadelphia-based group with Turkish roots, will perform for your listening enjoyment.
Not up for a big night out? Check out the sunset from your Philadelphia balcony and raise a toast to the start of summer!
