Bucket List September 2: Philadelphia, The Greatest City Never Sold

After a long break from Philly Hub, near two weeks, the Bucket List is back. Blame my surgeon for your withdraw pains, or channel all your frustration from 10 days of the missing out on the scoop on what to do in Philadelphia into this weekend:

Friday, September 2:
First Friday again! Check out the usual scenes of art shenanigans in Old City, starting at 5 p.m. Don't forget about the monthly Drink Philly First Friday party, where this month promises some Ithaca Brewing drafts and Q BBQ cuisine - for free, of course. Stroll the rest of the art gallery showings in Old City, and don't miss the going-ons at Penn's Landing either. While The Smooth Jazz Summer Nights & Fantastic Fridays at Penn Treaty Park were a good time in August,  the WHHY Connections Festival
is taking it up a few notches at Penn's Landing. 

Head there tonight for free music, movies and more.  
Enter at 6 p.m., enjoy a performance by the Hot Club of Philadelphia at 6:30, then head the the River Stage at 7:30 p.m. for a screening of Ken Burn's Prohibition. Afterwards, you can even hit up Festival Pier to watch Manu Chao bring his eclectic music to main stage Philadelphia. (Exhibit A, below)

At the Race Street Pier, expect their First Friday Parties to continue - with the real Bomba. Check out the Puerto Rican drum dance musica at 2nd and Race from 7 to 8:30 p.m. If you just can't miss out on the Phillies game, even for a free concert, art showings or complimentary bites and beverages, head to the Pizza at Schmidt's, where you can catch the game versus the Marlins tonight, starting at 7:10 p.m.  Also:Out in the country, hit up Brandywine Polo Club's Friday Nights Under the Stars for night polo & live music - tonight 61 North plays around 7:30 p.m.
