And then the weekend…

As we swing into May, rumored month of flowers, here comes a jam-packed weekend. On my possible agenda, we start with First Friday (also cheesesteak Friday, in some parts). Saturday, animal lovers can stroll up to PAWS (2nd and Arch) around half-past-noon and check out the “Voices of the Phillies”, where you can meet the broadcasters and announcers for autographs and photos. They’ll be accepting your donations for pets that need adoption. With your donation of money or one of the items on their list, you run the risk of winning Phillies prizes! There’s gonna be more pushin’ and shovin’ Philly Roller Girls at the Sportsplex in NE Philly (5 p.m.). Check the website for directions, ticket outlets, and more. A portion of the bout proceeds benefits Girls Rock Philly. After that, I was thinking about heading to see The Kills at Johnny Brenda’s.

Sunday, relaxation time. This is my favorite day. Headhouse Market re-opens for the season. I just found out that one of my favorite bands, Hoots and Hellmouth, will be playing for FREE at 10 a.m. Come stomp around with them!
