This is the real deal, folks.

For an exclusive look: Archivists at the Penn Museum on South Street take visitors on a behind-the-scenes look at the museum’s Egyptian collection twice today – 11:15 a.m. and 2 p.m. 

For a rescheduled event: Remember last week’s Bacon Fest? And how the not-so-nice weather turned it into a washout? Well the event is back on for today with a bacon rocket launch, free bacon samples, demonstrations and food trucks at The Oval on the Parkway from 5 p.m. to 11 p.m.

For a safari sleepover: The Elmwood Park Zoo still thrives at night and young explorers are invited to spend the night. Get to the Norristown, Pa. zoo by 5:30 p.m. for the campout, which includes a nighttime safari featuring the zoo’s giraffes.

For an opening night: A Rodgers and Hammerstein classic in which a British schoolteacher is hired by the King of Siam and the relationship they endure gets a two-weekend run courtesy of the Off Broad Street Players. Opening night of The King & I is tonight at 8 p.m. at Millville, N.J.’s Levoy Theatre.

For an all-nighter: If you weren’t able to score tickets to the Mad Decent Block party – or just enjoy a prolonged romp – this after party at Spring Garden’s Union Transfer will fulfill your needs. The lineup of the show includes Dillon Francis, Swizzymack and Noah Breakfast. Heads up: this event, starting at 2 a.m. is 21 and older.
