Friday 6.15

Disney Dance Party

Kung Fu Necktie


If you want to get down to the hits of your childhood, (yes you HSM fans) Getcha Head in the Game and get yo’ tickets. It kicks off at 10 pm with $3 drinks.


Low-Key Concert Night

Front Street Cafe

If you’re bummed about missing Harry Styles (sadly tickets are <$20), but still want to see a concert, check out tech musician Onur Ozman, who will be playing some Swiss blends from 10 pm to 2 am.


Movie Under the Stars 

Betsy Ross House

I never thought I’d say this, but Betsy Ross is throwing a party and it’s BYOB. A screening of Wonder Woman will be held in the courtyard at 8 pm.


I Miss the Old Kanye Party

The Barbary

Do you miss the old Kanye, straight from the go Kanye? Us too. The funeral, I mean party, starts at 10 pm.


Saturday 6.16

Artist Block Party

Callowhill District

This outside block party is for the cash poor (their words not ours!), which means you can buy art for cheap. It will run along 10th Street from Buttonwood to Hamilton, and goes 12 to 6 pm.


Standup Comedy Night

Maybe instead of blacking out tonight you just go and hear some standup comedy about other people’s blackout stories. It might feel nice not to have a hangover the next morning. Event begins at 9 pm.
