Pierre Robert

Pierre’s Weekend Calendar: February 16 – 18, 2024

February 16 - February 19

Good Day, Good Citizens! Each Friday after the Presidents arrive with their decaf coffee and Dave Edmunds serenades us with “Here Comes The Weekend”, the weekend can officially start. With the weekend ahead you might need something to do. I, Pierre Robert, run down an extensive list of things happening in and around the Philadelphia area. I call it Pierre’s Weekend Calendar. Everything from concerts to go to (Dridge, Blood Spore, Spesimin, and Charcuterie @ Johnny Brenda’s on Saturday), movies to see (Bob Marley: One Love, rated PG-13), events (small and large) to partake in, and always what is going on here at WMMR.

Some things are fairly standard (like Philly Beer Fest), some are totally bizarre (like Dixie’s Tupperware Party), and to be honest, for some of this stuff, I don’t have a clue as to what they are (like Skronk Fest). Hopefully, this guide of, some of what is going on in a fine village near you, will help keep you busy this weekend. Who knows, maybe you’ll even catch me at one or two of these events this weekend (please stop and say hi if you do).
