The Avenue Weekend – 11/26/10 – 11/28/10

November 26th, 2010 by marklove

Once you’re all shopped out, you might like to unwind a bit. Perhaps happy hours from Estia, 10Arts, or Bliss would put you right. Maybe some comfort food from Good Dog would do the trick (the Good Dog burger is heaven). Or, maybe, you’re looking for more traditional Avenue events:

Free at the Kimmel brings us Latin sounds in the form of The Official Fania DJ Tribute Party, 5:30 Friday evening, at Commonwealth Plaza.

The Kimmel also continues their Broadway season with South Pacific, Jersey Boys, and Sister’s Christmas Catechism. Details, showtimes, and ticket information are found here.

Heading to PAFA this weekend? Check out this update on Lenfest Plaza from our friends at Brownstoner Philly.

Have a great weekend, find lots of great gifts for your loved ones, and come enjoy yourself on The Avenue.

Of course there are Black Friday specials, and even some specials running before the big day:

Banana Republic – 25% off Entire Purchase, starting 11/23 and ending 11/28.
Estia – $300 or greater gift certificate purchases “receive a 10% discount if purchased before 12/31/10.”
Sailor Jerry is running an online Pre-Black Friday 20% off $50 or more through 11/24; check in the store on Friday for what’s next.
Kenneth Cole is running extended hours (but staying tight-lipped about discounts): 8-9 Friday, 9-9 Saturday, 11-7 Sunday.
