Can't Miss This: Cultural Events for 1/5-1/7
This weekend, find out why Philadelphia isn’t a cultural wasteland.
If you haven’t noticed by now, it’s cold.
It’s friggin’ cold.
It’s actually so cold that sharks are being found washed up and frozen on shores along the Northeastern coastline.
Unfortunately, this record-breaking chill is expected to goose up our skin well into the week.
Relative normalcy is making landfall next Monday with a high of 50 degrees.
The cold makes people want to stay in and curl up in a ball on the weekends, alternating between endless episodes of Black Mirror, Las Chicas del Cable, and Bob’s Burgers while the feeble winter sun waxes and wanes outside the walls.
Indulging in hygge is nice and even mentally healthy, but staying in too much and not taking advantage of what Philadelphia has to offer- especially in the bitterest months of the year -can lead to feelings of sadness, sluggishness, and isolation, which is no bueno.
January calls for being creative with plans to warm up an otherwise dreary night.
This weekend has your antidote:
- Ice Skating at Dilworth Park or Blue Cross RiverRink
- First Sunday at Art Museums
