What’s Happening in Philly

by Haley Fogarty

May 13, 2022

Even being a resident in the wonderful City of Brotherly Love, I am constantly finding myself learning and exploring the corners of the city. It is even fun for me to do a little bit of research to share with our readers but also for myself as each week or season comes with a slew of new activities, restaurants and events in Philadelphia.

PhiladelphiaFirst and foremost, Philly is celebrating the 76ers in the 2022 NBA playoffs. They have made it into the second round and are currently 3–2 versus the Miami Heat. In fact, by the time you may read this, the Sixers will have either triumphed against the southern team or have been defeated. Locals from each part of the city, including myself, will find themselves a barstool to plant in for the game tonight, May 12 at 7 p.m.!

I wasn’t surprised to find out Philadelphia was recently named one of the top 20 foodie cities in the country. With a recent(ish) addition of the Israeli Zahav and many other diverse choices, I would say we are within the top 10 or even five; but, of course, I am biased. If you’d like another option to experience the food in Philly without waiting three months for a reservation, there are plenty of pop-up food festivals to go around. The Italian Market’s food festival will run May 21 and 22 on 9th Street, along with many others!

PhiladelphiaIf you’re looking for a fun weekend or even weekday activity, the Rothman Ice Rink by City Hall has been transformed into a disco-themed roller rink for the spring and summer. Tickets are only $10, and you can grab a bite to eat from the vendors before or after your ride.

I love how Philly comes alive in the spring. After a winter of working from home and cold, windy weather, it is so refreshing to see everyone out and about, roller blading, dining al fresco and enjoying the sun. As always, go Sixers!!!

This is NEOM

Saudi Arabia is currently undergoing a bit of a transformation, repositioning itself as a tourism destination and debuting new developments and attractions. While perhaps not a “development” or “attraction” per se, NEOM is one of these new initiatives — but one beyond many of our wildest dreams. NEOM, a special economic zone within the country of Saudi Arabia, has been dubbed “a vision of what a new future might look like” and “a city of the future.”
