I would like to start this post on a more positive note; AT LEAST it wasn’t a hundred degrees, pouring rain, or humid as Peru this week!!! Besides the okay weather, it still felt like hell (just the tiniest bit cooler). After a long and murderous week of work and watching your rich friends travel and relax on the beach, I am glad to say the weekend is finally here! I have filled this weekend’s update with gorgeous jewelry, festivals, delicious food and even a Polo Cup. Use your two and a half days off wisely Philadelphia!
DO: PEACH FESTIVAL AT PEDDLER’S VILLAGE
August is national peach month so this Saturday and Sunday one can enjoy a festival devoted to peaches! Explore the area as you taste peachy treats. This event also has a pie eating contest and some family friendly fun. A sidewalk sale will feature various vendors with discounts on clothing, home goods, accessories and more.
TASTE: CENTER CITY DISTRICT RESTAURANT WEEK
