1. Take a Sunset Yoga Class at Bok Bar

Starting May 9, Bok Bar is partnering with KG Strong to offer sunset yoga classes every other Tuesday! Just BYOM (bring your own mat) and get ready to enjoy gorgeous sunset views atop one of Philly’s favorite rooftop bars. Did we mention there’s a post-class happy hour? AND each week, a portion of proceeds are donated to a local nonprofit organization that’s making change in our community. This is the perfect opportunity to support a great cause while getting your sweat on. Grab your tickets here!

There’s almost always a line out the door at 1-900-ICE-CREAM, and for good reason. Located near Rittenhouse Square, this ice cream shop has gained a following in Philly for their unique flavors and ever-changing specials. Be sure to follow 1-900-ICE-CREAM on Instagram to stay up to date with what they’re serving up each week!

3. Attend the Official Center City Sips Preview Party

Already counting the days until Center City Sips returns to Philadelphia? Yeah, us too. Luckily, Center City District is hosting a 21+ preview party on May 24, so you don’t have to wait much longer. Dance the night away with a live DJ as you enjoy the special SIPS drink discounts we know and love AKA $7 cocktails, $6 wine, and $5 beer. The best part? This event is completely FREE to attend.
