It's a busy weekend in Philly.
The Philadelphia Auto Show is in town. A new series at the Fairmount Park Horticulture Center is kicking off. The Please Touch Museum is debuting a new exhibit. Eighties music is making a comeback at the Kimmel.
There's something for everyone in our roundup of things to do Feb. 1-3.
Tickets are currently still available for all three shows.
Here's a way to feel all warm and fuzzy during this cold, cold weekend. Do something for those in need. You can help out a local nonprofit just by buying a beer at Love City Brewing in Callowhill.
Tired of being cooped up inside? Go drink at an ice bar serving mulled wine, spiked hot chocolate and seasonal beers. Just make sure to wear lots of layers and try to grab a spot by the fire pits.
Chef Peter Woolsey will use a chainsaw and set of Japanese ice chisels to create the bar Friday evening, and the public is invited to watch.
Saturday, make plans to go to a place with sand, exotic plants, lounge chairs and cocktails.
