Throughout the month of February, visitors to the National Museum of American Jewish History won’t have to pay a penny.

Thursday is World Kindness Day (did you know?), and to mark the occasion, the folks at KIND Bar are taking over LOVE Park to inspire Philadelphians to make kindness part of their daily routine.
Foobooz noted earlier today that Philly’s first Robeks location is officially open for business at 1035 Chestnut Street. But we can do even better: How about a coupon for a buy-one-get-one free deal on Robeks drinks to celebrate?
The offer’s good for any medium or large juice or smoothie, but you have to print the coupon (no flashing it on your phone, please) to use it. It’s good through October 31st, and you can only use it at the new location.
Just a quick PSA about that free weekly Body Rocker Ride we’re so obsessed with over at Body Cycle Studio: It’s moving to a new day and time starting next week.
Popular local yogi Kate Goodyear is launching a free yoga series this afternoon in Norristown that’ll run every Thursday until August 14th.
If you’re going to be in or near Center City tomorrow evening after work, plan to make a pit stop at Sister Cities Park, where the folks behind Free Fitness Philly will be having their first free (duh) pop-up workout.
Heads up, West Philly-ites! Free fitness movement, the November Project, is launching its second workout location this week, with free Friday morning workouts at UPenn’s Franklin Field. The gang will gather at 6:15 a.m. at the entrance for the Fox Fitness Center at Weiss Pavilion (Gate 2) for 40-minute-ish sweat sessions in the stadium. The entrance is on the north side of the stadium on Smith Walk between 32nd and 33rd streets.
Besides having the chance to explore the museum’s regular exhibits (dinosaur bones!), guests can take part in a handful of family-friendly one-off activities planned throughout the day. For instance, Mayor Michael Nutter will stop by the Academy’s library at 10 a.m. to read a story; there will be a dairy and cow-milking exhibit hosted by Wawa; and there will be arts and crafts stations set up so kids can just go wild making things.
The day kicks off at 10 a.m. on June 30th, and runs through 4:30 p.m. that afternoon. For more information on the day’s itinerary, go here.
