To help you get the most out of your weekend, we've enlisted the live-event expertise of the editors of Thrillist, a daily e-mail newsletter that highlights the best goings-on in 21 cities across the United States. From Dallas beer tastings and Miami food festivals to Seattle book readings and San Francisco obstacle races, Thrillist curates its Friday-Saturday-Sunday listings every seven days in its Playbook section. We've picked six of our favorite upcoming events from this week's Thrillist editions.
Philadelphia: Video games on the side of a building.
Once the sun goes down, bounce to the Philadelphia Museum of Art next Friday night and witness The Grandest Game of Pong on the Planet powering up. A two-day tournament played on the facade of UCity's 29-story Cira Centre, it's the kickoff to Philly Tech Week, an annual geekfest packed with public events where you can score some love for your own big ideas.
The Grandest Game of Pong on the Planet: Fri. April 19 and Wed. April 24, 8 p.m.; Philadelphia Museum of Art.
