Burger Palooza 2012
901 N. Delaware Avenue
Nov. 21, 5–9 p.m.
Price: $35 at door ($29 at participating food trucks in advance–starting November 12)
Raise your hand if you believe in the greatness of pre-gaming. Well the food trucks here in Philly do. On Thanksgiving Eve, Burger Palooza 2012 comes to Philly offering the mother of pre-gaming events in the form of a pre-Thanksgiving feast. I’m talking 12 entirely new 1/4-lb creations. I’m talking exclusive VIP access to never-before tried burgers. Basically, if you like to eat, you’ll be there.
The Female Gaze: Women Artists Making Their World
Fisher Brooks and Annenberg Galleries, Samuel M.V. Hamilton Building
118–128 N. Broad Street
Price: FREE to PAFA members,$15 at door ($10 in advance)
This one goes out to the proud supporters of the female empowerment movement. If you’re a feminist, and/or a guy that just loves girls, the Linda Lee Alter Collection of Art by Woman is for you. It features a diverse collection of over 500 works by over 150 woman artists PAFA has yet to work with such as Louise Burgeois and many others. Come feast your eyes upon unprecedented PAFA history!
Spellbound Dance Company
Annenberg Center for the performing arts
Nov. 15, 7:30 p.m., Nov. 16, 8 p.m., Nov. 17, 2 p.m and 8 p.m.
The 30-year Dance Celebration tradition of presenting the next great dance company continues with the debut of Italian Spellbound Dance Company. A combination of class, technique and beauty, this dance debut has got it going on. As evident by Christopher Columbus, discoverer of America, the people of Italy are capable of doing great things. I’m sure their dance skills are equally to par.
Proof, by the Front Row Theater Company
Houston Hall Class of ‘49 Auditorium
3417 Spruce Street
Nov. 15 and 16, 9 p.m., Nov. 17, 2 p.m.
Price: $8 with a PennCard, $10 without
If watching Revenge of the Nerds has taught us nothing else, it’s that nerds need love too. The writers of Proof know this to be true as well. They managed to create a story about a mathematician’s daughter and turn it into a dramatic tale of love and trust. Nothing’s more intriguing than math and love in the same plot…right?
