January Events in Philadelphia
Looking for something to do? This January, Philadelphia hosts some exciting events! Check out these four:
Mummer's Parade, January 1, 2012
A Philadelphia tradition, old men in elaborate costumes sit in small go-karts and whiz around the streets along with bands and other festivities. It's supposed to be linked to Celtic customs, but mostly it's a raucous good time.
Story Slam: Daily Grind at World Cafe Live, January 9, 2012
In the new year, make your new favorite hang out the Story Slams at World Cafe Live and L'Etage. Twice every month real people pour their hearts out about a selected theme. You can also compete with your own five minute tale of humorous woe.
City Food Tours, ongoing
Philly's foodie scene is thriving and City Food Tours is offering a fun, social way of experiencing it through restaurant crawls. Look out for special tours like Craft Beer and Artisanal Cheese or Decadent Gourmet.
Jerry Seinfeld at the Academy of Music, January 14, 2012
The original funny man comes to the Academy to talk about nothing. Really. But he'll probably include a few topical quips about the city and his act's guaranteed to be a good time!
