5 fun things to do in Philly this week
History After Hours
Head to the Museum of the American Revolution this week to check out another exciting addition of their History After Hours series. This month’s theme is “Bros and Foes” and the event will feature fun and educational activities that teach guests about the historic rules of dueling — most importantly, how to avoid one. Guests can also try to race against the clock with their friends in the Friend vs. Foe Escape Room, where you search for clues while exploring a Philadelphia neighborhood in the 1770s to discover why a disagreement turned sour. In the museum’s rotunda, Mark Turdo will be revealing surprising facts and answers about Aaron Burr and Alexander Hamilton’s duel, and in the Cross Keys Cafe (5-7:15 p.m.) Philadelphians can sample free cocktails from top local restaurants and distilleries during the One-Two Rum Punch Challenge. Be sure to also check out the Debate Vs. Dialogue games and role-playing scenarios hosted by representatives from the Conflict Resolution Program at the University of Pennsylvania before heading out from this exciting evening.
July 23, 5-8 p.m., Museum of the American Revolution, 101 S. 3rd St., $10, amrevmuseum.org
