Off with their heads—then on with the show! Bring a Super Soaker and join in the storming of the Bastille on Saturday at Eastern State Penitentiary's annual Bastille Day Celebration.

July is almost half over, but that leaves plenty of time for you to check out some really hot - er, cool - events taking place this month. Mark your calendars for these great things to do in Philadelphia the rest of this month:

Let them eat Tastykake! July 14 falls on a workday, so the Revolution (the French one, that is) is being moved ahead a few days. Eastern State Penitentiary once again plays the role of the Bastille for the 21st annual edition of the most riotous Bastille Day celebration outside France itself. Heads will roll, there will be singing and dancing,

P'unk BurgerBetter burgers with help from the neighbors: P'unk Burger kicks South Philly burger culture up several notches by keeping it local.

It's been eight years since Marlo and Jason Dilks took pizza in Philadelphia to places it had never been before with SLiCE, their affordable gourmet pizzeria at 10th and Federal streets, just west of the Italian Market in Passyunk Square.

As their pizza continued to gather accolades and fans, the Dilkses had an epiphany: What they did for pizza, they could do for burgers too. And they could bolster the South Philly economy while doing it.

The result is P'unk Burger, nestled between East Passyunk Avenue's two restaurant clusters on the 1800 block—just down the street from Marra's and Stogie Joe's and just up from Le

Rothman Ice Rink at Dilworth ParkFrom Rothman Ice Rink at Dilworth Park in winter...
Spruce Street Harbor Park...to Spruce Street Harbor Park in summer, Philly's outdoor attractions offer year-round pleasure for residents and visitors alike. Combine them with great shopping and an exciting food scene and you have one great destination - in fact, one that The New York Times named one of 52 must-visit places worldwide this year. 

"...diverse, fascinating, and all too often, entirely overlooked."

That's how Thrillist described Philly's food scene when it ranked the city ninth in its list of "The 40 Biggest U.S. Cities, Ranked By Their Food."

You could say the same for the city's shopping, entertainment and outdoor attractions. But not any more, for this year, everyone's giving Philadelphia a second look—and

They'll have to find other ways to "keep things weird" on East Passyunk Avenue, as the effort to keep an iconic bit of '80s kitsch on display in the neighborhood has failed, but the good news is, the sign will remain available for viewing elsewhere; Lynnewood Hall, the slowly decaying 110-room mansion Horace Trumbauer designed for the Wideners, gets another million-dollar haircut; the locked-out Carpenters launch a social media PR campaign against the Convention Center and its marketers; and they're still holding their breath in Spruce Hill, waiting for a burned-out social service center to be transformed into 24 affordable apartments:

After nearly 200 years in New York, the American Bible Society and its 200 employees are decamping for a place where they can live on a nonprofit's salary structure; the long-awaited rebuild of City Hall station will get under way next year, SEPTA officials say—but it will take a while for the agency to finish the job; since we show you so many Modernist high-end homes on this site, we figured it was time to give equal time to those who love a less austere style; it took three years and $800,000 in price cuts, but a Villanova mansion designed by a Clothier finally found a buyer who thinks it fits; and we close today with an extra—a call for Little Pete's defenders to rally 'round the restaurant tonight at the CCRA zoning meeting:

Not all of the redevelopment action on the Delaware waterfront is south of Penn Treaty Park; Wanna build a 45-story residential tower? Maybe put some retail or commercial on its lower floors? There's a lot on the Delaware riverfront all ready for you to build on, with permits in place; PRA throws in the towel on acquiring James Dupree's Mantua atelier but promises it hasn't given up on bringing a supermarket to the neighborhood; and even though it's more polyglot now than in years past, there's a reason people like Luke Palladino are drawn to open restaurants on East Passyunk Avenue:

Celebrated Jersey Shore chef Luke Palladino's new South Philadelphia outpost is well on its way to completion—so far along that it's already taking reservations on OpenTable.

We stopped by the soon-to-open Palladino's on Passyunk yesterday, and while it's not quite complete yet, it's all but ready on the inside, and Palladino himself was giving the kitchen its shakedown cruise in preparation for a scheduled Dec. 18 opening.

"We just lit the wood-fired grill for the first time today," he said as he and the kitchen crew were trimming a large cut of meat.

Steaks and chops will figure prominently on Palladino's Italian menu, sharing pride of place with handcrafted pastas and desserts. We didn't get a reveal of the entire menu but hear

10 good reasons to live here, revised and annotated

Spruce Street in Center City Bless our insecure little hearts, we just melt when some outsider stumbles across this place and discovers all sorts of reasons why it rocks, either as a place to visit or as a place to live. The latest entry in that latter category is real estate site Zillow, whose blogger Catherine Sherman recently contributed an item to Bloomberg.com listing "10 Good Reasons to Move to Philadelphia." Of course, the piece begins with the obligatory reference to the Liberty Bell and cheesesteak, the latter something to which Sherman returns later, and so will we. And she even manages to toss in that detestable phrase "sixth borough," which earns the Philadelphia Weekly contributor who blithely led her New York Times…
