You’ll begin your weekend on South Street. Although the options for dining and music are expansive on this famous street, tonight is a night for cheap eats. Head over to Jim’s for what I personally think is the best cheesesteak in the city. Founded in 1939, this corner joint is sure to impress your tastebuds.

For the evening’s entertainment you’ll want to travel a few blocks to the iconic Boot & Saddle, where local Philly artist Mock Suns will be performing. This talented indie-rock three piece combines soaring vocals and classic-rock styled guitar, creating a complete and catchy sound.

For some of the best food and variety in the city, there’s no better place than Reading Terminal Market. Providing bits of almost every nationality’s samplings, you’ll never be disappointed with your visit. For breakfast you will be dining at the Dutch Eating Place. Famous for its traditional cooking, this stand can whip up one great meal.

Beginning at 11 a.m., Johnny Brenda’s The Trouble with Trippels is an all day event hosting craft brews on tap, delicious food specials, and DJ Student Driver. Make sure you stop by at some point in the day to catch the party and have a few drinks with friends at this local establishment. Best of all, there’s no cover charge!

After a few drinks, you might be looking for music that’s a little heavier. Luckily for you, North Star Bar is highlighting Philly-based, progressive-rock band Cheap Dinosaurs. The concert is a release show for the band, so this 6-piece group will be playing their hearts out.
