Blue Cross Riverrink Summerfest (05/27 onwards): Rocket Power is buried deep in the cemetery of 90s Nickelodeon shows, but that doesn’t mean the roller derby is dead. Grab some skates ($10 rental, or $3 to ride) and some sure-footed friends for a good ride, and try some of the Famous Crabfries at the visiting summer crab shack.
Movie Night Under the Bridge (6/2, 8:30pm): You need a car for a drive-in theater, but for this kind of movie showing, all you need is a blanket. Optional: a friend, hummus dip, chips. This week, Stand by Me, a 1986 coming-of-age dramedy, will be playing.
Wizard World Comic Con (6/2-5): Do Halloween early at the Philly Comic Con. Michael J. Fox will be there, along with all the Spidermen and Batmen you can count.
Art After 5 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art (6/3): Hey, remember that time when you wore a bedsheet to the PMA? Redeem yourself in your best Zelda or F. Scott Fitzgerald wardrobe at the Arden Cabaret performance, where Joliet Harris will be singing jazz classics and more. The Spanish AMOR sculpture (of which we have the English LOVE version) was installed here this year in honor of the Pope’s visit. Bring a date there once the museum closes at 8:45, take a cute photo, fall in L-O-V-E. We hear that’s how it works, right? (Free after admission)
Philly Beer Week (6/3-6/12):There comes a time in every young squire’s life to graduate from beer pong to beer-pairings. Plan out your happiest hours using the 68-page guide on the Philly Beer Week website, or just crawl your way through the many participating pubs.
Beyonce: The Formation World Tour (6/5) - Bey is coming to Philly, ‘nuff said. Resale tickets are going at $90 and up, or you could just sit somewhere grassy beyond Lincoln Financial Field and check if you can see her halo.
Philly Free Week at Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens (6/5-6/10) - Mirrors, mosaics and mazes, oh my! Knock this must-do item off the bucket list before graduating (or after!).
