city of love

so many valentine’s day-themed events are going on this weekend! whether you like the holiday or not, there are a couple of things you can do in philly this weekend that sound pretty cool…

miss you

you may remember these murals from a post I did a while back…they’re part of a series called “a love letter for you,” which consists of over 50 murals by artist steve powers throughout philadelphia.

well there’s an exhibit opening tonight of sketches, found objects associated with the project, and personal works by the artist, taking place at 1226 chestnut st from 5:30 to 8:30. then tomorrow you can catch powers at exit skateshop in northern liberties between 5 and 7pm, signing copies of the “a love letter for you” book.  there’s even a special “love train” event on valentine’s day, where you can take a tour of the murals on a privately chartered, slow-speed, guided el train. for more info click here.

this is something i’d like to do on any random day- this weekend you can go to hudson beach glass in philly and pull your own glass flower! they’re so pretty…and they’ll never die :) for more info click here.
