The Weekend Underground [Philly Edition 2/5-2/8]

Written by Joe Pitts

The Weekend Underground is our new series of posts dedicated to showcasing the cool stuff going on that you might have otherwise missed out on. In this series we aren't going to cover the latest JT concert or undoubtedly exciting and innovative center city bar crawl. Instead we're going to talk about the underground events that ooze genuine organic fun and creativity.
