Education + Drinking?  And You Thought that was Just for College Students

Philly is known as a place of liberty, but what about libations?  Dark history, dark brews, and compelling historical narratives coupled with a pub crawl—you can’t beat it!  March means Grim Philly is back at it with their Bootleggers Ball Prohibition Pub Crawl.

 According to their website, the tour explores everything from “ruthless "businessmen" gangsters shooting up the city in a war to control the liquor trade, to a few haunting stories of pirates and colonial brewers.”  Get immersed in the narrative—and a little booze along the way as the tour makes 3 tavern stops—as your guide explains “Philly's early tavern & waterfront drinking cultures” and stories about some famous

Philadelphia Museum of Art, 2600 Benjamin Franklin Parkway
The city's premiere art museum is a treasure trove of art from across the centuries and around the world.  Its Asian art collection is one of the world's finest, and when you've had enough of the main museum, there are two other galleries to visit: the Rodin Museum, devoted to the French sculptor of "The Thinker," and the Perelman Gallery, with its changing

Some of those fans are expected to be part of the Francis Festival weekend in Philadelphia. Not only they, but you too, will have an easier time getting around that weekend thanks to changes in SEPTA service in the city.

We mustn't forget that while official Philadelphia may be taking a long weekend when Pope Francis pays us a visit on Sept. 26-27, lots of private businesses will be #OpenInPHL to accommodate visitors to the World Meeting of Families and serve the needs of those of us who are sticking around that weekend.

Last week, SEPTA made a major change to its service plans for the weekend that will make it easier for the people
