6. PHILLY PIGEON POETRY SLAM
Friday, February 2, 2018, 8:30 p.m. – 11:45 p.m.
The name is odd, but the Philly Pigeon is the largest adult poetry slam event in Philadelphia. Each first Friday they will bring you an out of town feature poet, two funny hosts, a DJ and top of the line slam. This month’s feature will be Noel Quiñones: an AfroBoricuan educator, writer, and performer whose performances have been showcased on Huffington Post, and was most recently named one of New York State’s 40 Under 40 Rising Latino Stars. Learn more HERE.

8. HAUTE SUNDAY EXPERIENCE
Sunday, February 4, 2018, 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.
Due to the location, Philly constantly gets compared to D.C. and NYC regarding the lack of options for the ‘turn-up’. But we all know, you have to be the change you wish to see. Haute Restaurant & Lounge has stepped up to the plate and done just that. Already all over this week’s list of events, they will now have brunch with bottomless mimosas until 3pm, branded cocktails by Mr. MixItUp and sounds like DJ Oboyy. Learn more HERE..
9. BUD LIGHT DILLY DILLY SUPERBOWL TAILGATE
Sunday, February 4, 2018, 6:30 p.m.
We were firm in holding down the NFL boycott for a while there, but it seems the Eagles said “Hold up, let us get this Superbowl win real quick.” Now, here we are. Check out Bud Light’s Dilly Dilly Tailgate with free admission. Sports Radio 94WIP will be broadcasting live from the event. There will be pre, halftime, and post-game shows as well as buffet food tickets available for purchase. Learn more HERE.
