Weekend Picks: Center City District Restaurant Week, Philly Home Show, Eagles In The Playoffs And More

Cheers to the weekend, Philly!

There’s lots to look forward to in the city over the next couple days, including one of the year’s most popular events — Center City District Restaurant Week — which returns on Sunday for a 13-day run of fixed-price, three-course meals at beloved eateries.

Also on Sunday, the Philadelphia Eagles continue their path to the Super Bowl. The Birds face the Saints in New Orleans in the second round of the playoffs, so fans can stock up on snacks to watch at home or head to their favorite sports bar to see the game.

Over at the Pennsylvania Convention Center, the weekend-long Philly Home Show, which features demonstrations, fan-favorite HGTV stars and more than 200 vendors, is back for its first of two consecutive weekends.

Arts lovers can sing along with Beautiful: The Carole King Musical all weekend long at the Academy of Music or head to the Barnes Foundation to say farewell to the museum’s Berthe Morisot exhibition (all weekend) and welcome a new Barnes installation from Pat Steir (Saturday).

And Philly Loves Bowie Week wraps up with themed drinks and a screening of Labyrinth at Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest (Sunday) and a major show at Union Transfer (Friday).

Turn the weekend into a winter getaway and book the Visit Philly Overnight Hotel Package, featuring up to $218 in free perks.

Note: Due to the federal government shutdown, attractions in Independence National Historical Park — including The Liberty Bell Center and Independence Hall — are closed. Many other attractions in Philadelphia’s Historic District are open regular hours. Tip: The exterior of Independence Hall still looks great in photos, and the Liberty Bell is visible through a window on the east side of its building. Click here for more info.
