Thursday: Glory Days: Throwback to the 80′s Party
Celebrate the 1980s – the decade when Springsteen released his album Born in the U.S.A., which featured seven hit singles including “Glory Days.”
Guests can enjoy food, drinks, live musical performances and access to From Asbury Park to the Promised Land: The Life and Music of Bruce Springsteen.
It’s all going down at the National Constitution Center (naturally) from 5:30 to 9:30. Head on over after work. I’m sure no one will notice that your hair is a little more teased than usual or care that you’re wearing neon.
Friday: You figure it out…
Just kidding! Just trying to stick with the theme, see?
So , get your best mod costume on a la Pulp Fiction and hit the lanes. Prizes will be awarded for best costumes, drinks and food will be served, and, of course, there will be plenty of bowling.
Saturday: Philabundance Cupcake Smash
Philabundance is once again joining forces with PYT, America’s craziest burger joint, to challenge area cupcake enthusiasts to enjoy, create, or compete, and most importantly fight hunger in the second coming of last year’s SOLD OUT event, Cupcake Smash! This year, The Piazza at Schmidts has joined our army…giving us their keys and we are taking over.
Philabundance and PYT are challenging bakers to seek inspiration in Tommy Up’s adventurous menu. It’s an opportunity for competitors to be truly original and create one-of-a-kind treats that will surprise and delight the senses.
It all goes down from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Piazza at Schmidt’s.
Center City Jazz Festival is set to showcase great new music in an exciting, youthful, energetic environment, and introduce a new crop of the Philadelphia-area’s best up-and-coming artists to both the aficionados and the curious. We’re going to take jazz out of concert halls and put it into a number of Center City’s best new restaurants/bars and familiar music venues clustered around Broad Street, all within easy walking distance of each other. The festival will feature the music of some of the brightest musicians on the jazz scenes in Philadelphia and surrounding areas, including NYC. 16 bands will perform at multiple eclectic venues, including Chris’ Jazz Cafe, Time Midtown, Fergies Pub, and Milkboy Philadelphia, between 1pm and 8pm. A headlining act will perform two shows, 8 & 10pm, at Chris’ Jazz Cafe’. The festival is being presented with an emphasis on the quality of its music and not simply on the names of its participants. The music will range from hard-bop to groove and from sultry songstresses to dance inducing Latin jazz — so organize a group of your friends, catch a show or two or TEN, have a drink, and enjoy some of the best music you haven’t yet heard.
