It's (almost) spring time in the city

Friday, March 15, 2019

Spring is in the air and FYI Philly has plenty of fun to share. A Bucks County Landmark is adding a new act at their Playhouse. We belly up to the bar at two new spots to watch the game, tour a new place to call home in the city. Plus, we round up Open Mic Nights in the city to test your talents. And a secretly awesome guitar-maker-for-the-stars in our own backyard.

The Bucks County Playhouse has been a New Hope landmark since 1939. A new addition is providing another reason to visit.
