We love being 20 minutes outside of Philadelphia, with tons of options for weekend fun both in and out of the city. Here are our top 3 picks for things to do in Philly this weekend (which also happens to be the start of spring break.):
1. The first ever Great Ice Cream Auction at Little Baby’s Ice Cream - what goes better with a Friday night than delicious and unique ice cream flavors like buttered popcorn, pumpkin spice latte donut, and black pepper butter pecan?
2. “Shattering Expectations: Mosaic 2014” at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens - an exhibition featuring the region’s most accomplished mosaicists. Words really can’t do this place justice…
3. The annual Flower Show at the Philly Convention Center - the world’s largest indoor flower show with 10 acres of floral arrangements, landscape designs and educational displays from around the world. New this year is a display of rarely-seen prints from Andy Warhol’s Flowers series.
Enjoy the snow-free weekend…only 2 more weeks until spring!Comments
This exhibition—curated by the members of the 360°: Exhibiting Modern Art course—marks the centennial of the 1913 Armory Show with a selection of 36 works—by artists including James McNeill Whistler, John Sloan, Isabel Bishop, Paul Cadmus, Jack Levine, and Yvonne Jacquette—that reflect the complex legacy of modern art across the twentieth century.
