Friday, 12.22

Christmas Village

Love Park


You’d be hard-pressed to find a more ideal date than the Christmas Village at Love Park, and it’s almost over. Check out the vast multitude of things to eat, drink, and see before it’s too late.

Southwork / Circadian Rhythyms / Miss Cantaloupe

Boot & Saddle


Bands that play at Boot & Saddle are well on their way to the next level, and seeing them here gives you a chance to check them out at a good price.


Merry Riffmas with Riff Mountain

Johnny Brenda’s


Come by Johnny Brenda’s for an action-packed event with a zero dollar cover. DJs Hodges, Pellet and Krivda will be supplying the tunes for this pre-Christmas bash.


Saturday, 12.23

Nightmare Before Christmas Dance Party

The Barbary


It’s hard to mess up an event that combines both the aesthetic stylings of Tim Burton and the Barbary. Grab that special someone and come decked out in a costume that fits the occasion.


Second Annual Buy Black Marketplace

1801 W Diamond St


Get acquainted with your local African businesses and community members. There will be many sights to see, including an African marketplace, guest performers, speakers, raffle and gift giveaways, and a traditional Lighting Of The Kinara Ceremony.


Broad Street Hockey Festivus Party and Food Drive

Broad Street Bullies Pub


If you or your main squeeze is a Flyer’s fan, this is a perfect opportunity to check out the pub at Xfinity. There will be drink specials, and if nothing else, a chance to see why Philadelphia sports fans are reviled the world over.


Sunday, 12.24

Chinese Dinner

Shaare Shamayim


If a kosher Chinese meal on Christmas eve tickles your fancy, by all means stop on by. This is a tradition that has caught on like wild fire for many non-Christian denominations, and for good reason.


Winter Garden and Ice Rink

Dilworth Park


Depending on your skills, the rink at Dilworth park could make for an amazing date, or an incredibly embarrassing last one. Either way, it’s worth checking out while it’s still up.


Cosmic Grooves with DJ Corey Duncan

Johnny Brenda’s


From 11 am to 3 pm, pay a visit to DJ Corey Duncan, an individual gracious enough to lend his services on Christmas Eve.


Christmas Eve At Devil’s Den

Devil’s Den


This bar is open from 10:30 am to 10 pm on Christmas Eve, something not every place can say. It also has a great fireplace to get you ready for the Yule Log Christmas morning.
