Blogger Diary: Friday Night

Post image for Blogger Diary: Friday Night

I love Friday nights… even if they’re low key, it’s a welcome break from the hectic workweek, but this past Friday was a particularly good one. After catching Sharon Van Etten’s free at noon show at WXPN, I finished up the workday, met up with a couple friends and hopped in a cab to the Philadelphia Museum of Art. One of my friends writes a travel blog and had a free pass to get us into Art After Five, something the museum has every Friday evening.  We took our seats on the massive marble staircase, sipped wine and ate cheese while listening to some beautiful jazz music – not a bad way to start the weekend! Unfortunately we didn’t leave a lot of time for ourselves to check out much art before the museum closed, but I plan on going back soon anyway to check out the Van Gogh and Zoe Strauss exhibits.

Afterwards we stopped by a bar in Philly called The Farmers’ Cabinet – a really cool place with an awesome list of rare craft beers. I had a bottle of French cider – yum! The atmosphere is inspired by the 1800s Victorian era, and has the vibe of an old speakeasy – with a live jazz band, wine barrels turned into tables, and dimly lit by mason jar candles and oil lamps.
