First Fridays

Philly has so much art, culture, and fashion in which to indulge. It’s all about getting out and experiencing what this great city has to offer. A favored event to jump into the action is called “First Friday”. “First Friday” goes down monthly on the first Friday of the month from 5-9PM in Olde City. This neighborhood has many galleries and every street has something going on. Vendors are always showcasing their latest goodies, boutiques are bringing in new customers, and the restaurants are some of the city’s best. The scene is causal, light, and the options of entertainment seem endless. Attend “First Friday” you have nothing to lose and all to gain.
Drexel University’s Design and Merchandising alumni have a strong presence in Philadelphia.   
Two stores in Olde CIty, Smak Parlour located at 219 Market Street and Sioux Zanne Messix located at 54 N 3rd Street are both owned by D&M alumni.

The event is so successful that even Northern Liberties has gotten in on the fun. Check out the NoLibs site to get a feel for the Northern Liberties scene. Here you can see which places are offering a 10% discount from 5-9PM. In NoLibs a D&M Alum works for Duke and Winston located at 633 N 2nd Street and a D&M instructor owns Arcadia Boutique located at 819 N 2nd Street. This really is one of the best events to happen in Philadelphia. Not only is it FREE, but it happens all year round rain or shine. So get out there and experience it at first hand, you won’t regret it.
