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.
