Shoppers can head to the chic Kin Boutique this weekend for their annual patio sale, with markdowns of up to 90% off.

For the sale, the store’s stylists have gone through previously worn and consigned tops, shoes, bottoms and a curated vintage section for Philadelphians to shop through. The store will be limiting the amount of people allowed on the patio, in accordance with city guidelines, so shoppers are encouraged to arrive early to get on the waitlist. Complimentary drinks and snacks will be served, including a special surprise from JIGGY coffee while you wait for your turn to shop as well.

The Bourse’s Baseball Movie Night
Old City’s own artisanal food hall has a new incentive to head to their venue for baseball lovers and film aficionados every Friday night starting this week. With their new outdoor movie series, ‘There’s No Crying in Baseball,’ Philadelphians will be able to watch 90’s baseball classics on the big screen on their Fifth Street patio for a safe and socially distanced outdoor movie screening from 7 to 10 p.m. each week in April. Each table seats up to four guests and costs a flat fee of $40, so groups of one, two, three or four only need to purchase one ticket. This week’s film is ‘Angels in the Outfield’, and moviegoers are invited to the patio starting at 6 p.m. to enjoy snacks and refreshments from select food hall vendors prior to the movie.
