Things to Do
A New York-based soccer center wants to take Philly's soccer scene to new heights — the rooftop of the Bok building.
Driving the news: U90 Soccer Center, which runs a soccer complex with turf fields and event and retail space in Queens, is coming to the former vocational school-turned-creative hub in South Philly this fall.
My fiancé and I started learning how to dance salsa a few months ago, something we've always talked about but finally took on to prepare for our wedding. And despite taking classes once a week, we're still ... exceptionally average.
Finally, Wrestlemania has come back to Philadelphia — well, in 2024, anyway.
Why it matters: It's the second major sporting ("sporting"?) event that Lincoln Financial Field has landed in as many months, alongside the World Cup.
"The Box," an immersive play about solitary confinement in prisons, is coming to Eastern State Penitentiary next month.
Driving the news: The play's cast members — several of whom were formerly incarcerated — are touring across the country this summer, inviting audiences in 10 cities to imagine an end to the use of isolation as punishment.
I have a confession. I'm among the (tragic) many who haven't given vermouth much thought beyond its supporting role in cocktails. This weekend was the first time I tried vermouth neat — its main character moment!
- So I asked Philadelphia's Dumpster Juice makers Zach Morris and Tim Kweeder for advice on how to explore vermouth for novices like myself.
Tim Heidecker is coming home to Philly in two weeks' time — for one night only, anyway.
Why it matters: You probably know him (alongside Eric Wareheim) as part of the absurdist comedy duo Tim & Eric, who got their start after meeting at Temple in the '90s.
Pennsylvania's state park system is getting bigger.
What's happening: The Boss will hit Wells Fargo Arena on March 16. Tickets go on sale via the venue's website on July 26, so set your reminders now.
