It feels like there hasn’t been a full work week since the before the new year in Philly! Between the holidays, people taking off to go to the Super Bowl, Super Bowl Monday (necessary) and of course the parade we are all still buzzing from. Next week will be no different with a lot of employers recognizing President’s Day as a work holiday. With a 3-day weekend ahead, we thought it’d be fun to share our favorite Philly “staycation” ideas from where you stay, where to eat & what to see which you might otherwise overlook on any other weekend!


Where to Stay: Vacations are great because you get to see new things but also because you don’t have to worry about cleaning up. This is why we suggest, even though you may live in Philly, stay in a hotel or

For those unaware, Philly sports fans are on the brink on one of the biggest weekends of their lives...the Philadelphia Eagles are in the Super Bowl. Some fans have been lucky enough (and have saved enough) to be en route to the frozen tundra of Minnesota to watch the Eagles take on the Patriots on Sunday evening. For those unable to find a ticket or find value in saving this money for say...a down payment (wink wink) Philly is definitely the next best place to be! There are a variety of ways to support the team leading up to the game as well as endless places to go out and watch the game on Sunday night. Head to Twitter & search #EaglesDeals to see who are offering specials during the game, which bars are hosting all-inclusive viewing parties & where

In the City of Brotherly love it’s not hard to find a romantic stop to celebrate the holiday with your loved one! So you’re not quite sure where to take that special someone this year & review sites aren’t giving you enough information? We’ve taken on the task of visiting all the most charming restaurants throughout the city to clue you in on where to go & what to enjoy!


Bibou: Located between the heart of the Italian Market & Queen Village this quaint French BYOB is the perfect hideaway to enjoy a 7-course pre-fixe tasting menu by candlelight. The menu changes weekly, so chances are the decadent foods we tried during our visit have since been replaced with fresh and seasonal fares. Reservations are scarce so be sure to plan ahead as there are only a

Are you a big history buff and love to get in the spirit for President’s Day? We’ve compiled a great list of spots to check out today & anytime you feel like diving into the history of the city and the nation!

  1. Independence National Historical Park: One of the only National Parks located in the heart of a city, this is a great stop to see it all. Our recommendation is to make the first stop the Independence Visitor Center to help plan your visit with the staff & you purchase all your tickets there too!

  2. President’s House Site: The entrance to the Liberty Bell Center starts with the President’s House Site which is free of charge & outside so you can stop by without having to worry about meeting the hours of operation. This is a

At the close of 2017, Philadelphia Magazine came out with their top 50 restaurants in Philadelphia and Hungry Pigeon topped the list at #1.

Never been to Hungry Pigeon, there’s no excuse since this top restaurant is virtually open all day long. Week days starting at 7am with breakfast until 11am, then a lunch menu until 2:30pm, followed by “after school” fare and finishing out with dinner beginning at 5pm daily.

The wait is finally over, Clubhouse is opening this Friday...just 2 more days! There’s been quite a buzz around what is coming to one of Philly’s most prominent areas of the city & we could not be more excited to have chatted with the marketing team at Clubhouse to get the inside scoop!

First, we had to know exactly when we were able to get in there and see what this was all about. We had heard the end of January & they have delivered with opening day coming this Friday, doors open at 11:30am! For those not familiar with exactly where to head this Friday to check it out, head toward Nordstrom Rack in Center City on S. 17th Street & look across the street! The newest sports lounge is

Xfinity: The perfect place to watch the game after a day of tailgating! No Uber, no subway, just a quick walk from all of the parking lots...but be ready for one of the longest lines of your life just to get in. That being said, once you’re inside you are among hundreds of other Eagles fans looking for a huge win plus there are ALWAY game day specials to keep you full & warm all game long!

Chickie’s & Pete’s: Another South Philly favorite and although a longer walk than Xfinity, you can still enjoy a fun time at the tailgate before venturing up to Chickie’s & Pete’s to watch the game. They just hosted Fox29 News for a pep rally this morning and if that’s the atmosphere without a huge game, we can only imagine what it will be like come Sunday around

Forecasts say we’re expecting up to 3 inches of snow overnight tonight...does that mean there is potential for a snow day tomorrow? If so, we want you to be well prepared with the best spots to warm up with a drink around the city. In case we’re not so lucky, save these for another cold day this winter!

The Dandelion: You’re immediately drawn in just by the exterior; covered with plants & located on the corner of Sansom & 18th Streets. Step in the front door and if you’re not instantly hooked by the cozy lounge and fireplace chances are this list isn’t for you! Come early to snag the coveted couch by the warm fire & enjoy a proper afternoon tea including both sweet and savory options!

For many, it’s the first full week back since the holidays so Friday has never looked sweeter; plus it’s no longer miserable to be outside for more than 10 seconds so why not make the most of it before the cold front returns. Which is just in time for...

...Pegsicle at Finge Arts! Not familiar with La Peg located in the Fringe Arts Building? It’s the perfect long weekend to stop by & learn more about it, especially Monday. Noon kicks off the building of the ice bar, Pegsicle, at La Peg! This is projected to take about 5 hours to craft and upon completion, the festivities will begin! Each night next week will feature a different local artist creating their own unique ice sculptures during dinner service. Lucky for us next week is below freezing
