Bastille Day is this Sunday. We created a roundup of what's happening in Philadelphia to mark the holiday, including block parties, a burlesque show and a four-course dinner.
Described as "not your average farmers market," the new open-air market series will kick off on July 13. Spend the day shopping fresh food and local goods, and don't forget to take in the stunning views of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge from the pier.
The strange story of a pilot who crashes in the desert and meets an odd young boy from a distant astroid is a philosophical tale that has charmed generations of readers.
On Sunday, there will be a big block party at the Barnes Foundation with food trucks, a beer garden and live art. Attendees can also check out the Barnes' collection for free – just make sure to register online ahead of time.
Each quarter, Love City brews a special beer and donates 10 percent of the beer's total sales to its chosen group.
The Synaspe Session IPA aiding patients with brain tumors is available starting Friday.
