For all of you Swatties not into the traditional party scene available at Paces and DU, Philly awaits you. Ever been curious about Swing dancing? Get a free lesson at 8:00 p.m. at Blue Moon Dance Studio (www.swingdance.org/ongoing.htm). Want some live music? Check out Fooling April, Omnisoul, Jason Liebman and The Uprising, and Jenn Stang at the Speakeasy Cafe (http://www.speakeasycaferocks.com/).
If you want to sit back and be entertained, this is your last weekend to see Pig Iron Theater Company’s Hell Meets Henry Halfway, part of The Fringe Festival (http://www.phillytheatreco.com/). Looking for a little history/culture? Remember that Liberty Bell? It’s in downtown Philly, and there is a tour and even an evening light show to accompany your visit to this historical site (http://www.lightsofliberty.org/main.htm).
Philly has a little bit of something for everyone to enjoy. There is life outside the Swarthmore bubble – enjoy it!
