Enough with winter. It's time to usher in spring.
Holi will begin on Wednesday, March 20, and end Thursday, March 21. The Hindu festival, where people throw colored powders at each other, marks the start of springtime and is celebrated throughout India.
In Philly, Veda Modern Indian Bistro will celebrate Holi with a party on Thursday.
The 21-plus crowd is invited to dress in neon – Holi is the "Festival of Colors" after all – to dance and drink at the restaurant from 9 p.m. to midnight. There will be a DJ, hoop performers and free face painting.
Drink specials will include a glowing gin and tonic, brightly colored vodka cocktails, vodka Jell-O shots and a variety of beer.
Tickets to attend are $35 and include one drink.
