The Penn Museum is putting a new spin on its Summer Nights music series, starting Wednesday, June 26.
On select Wednesday evenings this summer, the 21-plus crowd is invited to spend happy hour in the museum's outdoor courtyard, while listening to a curated playlist by a local celeb.
First up is Gritty. The mascot's 40-song Memorial Day weekend playlist he made to kick off summer will be played. The eclectic mix includes songs from Celine Dion, ABBA and "Spongebob Squarepants."
From 5 to 7 p.m., Summer Nights attendees can relax outdoors, sip on cocktails by the garden's marble fountain and take a stroll through the galleries. Admission is $5 and includes access to the museum.
Below are all the upcoming dates.
• June 26 – Music curated by Gritty
• July 17 – Music curated by Feminista Jones
• July 31 – Music curated by Brian Sims
