For a debut: A new, permanent park is opening today at Pier 53 on Columbus Boulevard with a 10 a.m. ribbon cutting ceremony and remarks by Mayor Michael Nutter. The space will feature a boardwalk, access to the river, seating areas and public art.
For singles: Sip vino in good company at Crossing Vineyards and Winery in Washington Crossing, Pa. At 7 p.m. other souls looking for a match will gather at the winery for a tasting, cheese and chats.
For something spooky: The mind behind the horror franchises “Hellraiser” and “Candyman,” Clive Barker, penned a few theatrical works and one of them is getting a local premiere at the Christ Church Neighborhood House Theater. “Crazyface,” presented by BrainSpunk Theater tells the story of a man and his family as they journey across the country, while being sought out by spies. The show begins at 7:30 p.m. in Old City.
