Since October 21, 2015, was the day Marty McFly arrived when he time-traveled in Back to the Future II, I’m sure most of us are pretty disappointed there are no real hoverboards or flying cars yet in 2015.
So, to make our presence in the future a little bit cooler, Time Restaurant, located at 1315 Sansom Street, is throwing a Back to the Future Party this Wednesday, packed with 80’s nostalgia and even better stuff than what the movie predicted.
From 9pm-1am, the 80’s inspired cover band Clock Radio will be performing in the restaurant’s venue, playing plenty of classic hits you’ll most likely know all the words to.
Remember that mesmerizing slider that compared the Center City of 1965 with the one from 2014? Well, we stumbled upon an old CityLab post (old meaning two years ago) that highlighted an interactive time-lapse of various satellite images from NASA and the U.S. Geological Survey’s Landsat program. It gave us an idea…
According to CityLab, the Timelapse project–which Google has GIFs of!–is a venture between TIME, Google, NASA, USGS, and the CREATE Lab at Carnegie Mellon University. It’s meant as a kind of digital flip book that puts the “stunning change across the earth’s surface, in both our natural environments and our man-made ones” right before our eyes.
Hot on the heels of Deschutes Base Camp is Brooklyn Brewery’s Brewery Mash. The Brooklyn Brewery’s benefit for Slow Food USA is coming to Philadelphia for a mix of cultural happenings, dinner parties, concerts, comedy readings and of course, Brooklyn beer.
Headquartered at Time on Sansom Street, Brooklyn Brewery Mash offers six days of events around town.
