Here is your CSz Philadelphia edition of fun things to do in Philadelphia this weekend.
By now, most people know about all the tourist destinations throughout the city of brotherly love: the Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, the Philadelphia Zoo, the Art Museum steps, South Street, the Italian Market, and many other Rocky movie locations.
But where do you go after the Philadelphia Museum of Art turns out the lights or The National Constitution Center closes its doors for the day? Where can you go to chill out and get some laughs?
In Philadelphia, fun things to do are plentiful. You just need someone to point you in the right direction.
Fun Things To Do For Everyone
ComedySportz and Shake Shack Philadelphia is the birth place of America, What’s more American than eating burgers, fries and a shake followed by some friendly comedy competition? ComedySportz is two teams of professional improvisers competing for your laughs by creating comedic scenes, games and songs based on your suggestion. Best part, it’s Rated E for Everyone.
Shake Shack is located up the block from CSz Philly at the corner of 20th & Sansom Streets in center city Philadelphia. Give yourself enough time to order and eat, it can get busy on the weekend, but it’s worth the wait.
Alternate Food Option: Poi Dog. Fast Hawaiian food that is delicious and unlike anything you’ve had before...unless you’re from Hawaii.
Fun Things To Do For Adults
The Blue Show and Oh! Shea’s You’re an adult, you want some adult entertainment! Try The Blue Show, Philadelphia’s only adults-only comedy show. It’s smart, fast, funny, adult age comedy. And very blue. Trust us. The Blue Show happens the last Friday of every month @ 10PM.
If you want to get a drink beforehand or hang with the performers afterward for a nightcap, definitely head down the block to Oh! Shea’s. A great local pub with plenty of places to sit, good beer, and a great menu. Tell them “CSz Philly sent ya!”
Fun Things To Do For Kids
ComedySportz Minor League Matinee and Capogiro We know that it can be hard to get the kids out in the evening. No worries! We have the ComedySportz Minor League Matinee every Sunday @ 2PM. It’s a 60-minute family friendly version of ComedySportz with our second company of Players: the Minor League. Afterward, head on over to Capogiro at 20th & Sansom (diagonal from Shake Shake) and try some delicious gelato. We recommend Dark Chocolate and Lemon; luckily you can choose whatever combo you and your kid wants.
Fun Things To Do For Couples
Friday Night Shows and El Rey After a long week of work (locals) or taking a guided tour around Old City (tourists) you need some cool vibes and good laughs. Start the night off at El Rey (2013 Chestnut Street). It’s a hip, retro and serves excellent Mexican food. They pour super strong margaritas so be sure to fill up on nachos, street corn and fish tacos!
Afterward try one of CSz Philly’s Friday night shows. We have a rotating schedule of improv shows including the murder mystery show MURDER MANOR, a live puppet show called PUPPETS HERE & THERE, the interactive and improvised game of Dungeons & Dragons called ROLL PLAY and many more. All of our shows are BYOB, so feel free to bring a bottle of wine or a few beers and enjoy the show.
