Pierre’s Weekend Calendar: February 9 – 11, 2024

February 9 - February 11

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 (Squid at the Union Transfer Fri), movies to see (Lisa Frankenstein, 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 Northern Liberties Restaurant Week), some are totally bizarre (like The Wooder Bowl), and to be honest, for some of this stuff, I don’t have a clue as to what they are (like Trolls: Save the Humans). 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).
