Hooray for Friday!
For bacon lovers: Have you heard the word? In case you haven’t: it’s bacon. From 5 p.m. to 11 p.m., enjoy free (!) bacon, food trucks, music from DJ Apt One & lil’Dave, bacon cooking demo, a screening of Apollo 13 (Kevin Bacon — duh) and more at The Oval on the Parkway during Philadelphia Bacon Fest.
For a First Friday event: As a part of the Phreaq N Queer Music and Arts Festival (running until Sunday), Space 2033 in Fishtown will host a First Friday affair with readings from performance artists and physical work shown within the gallery from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m.
For a date night: Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens wants you to treat your sweetie tonight during one of their Deluxe Date Night sessions. At either 6 p.m. or 7:30 p.m., take a tour of the South Street space, enjoy an art activity and grub on bites from Di Bruno Brothers.
