Halloween Weekend: Best Events Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2014

Happy Halloween! The future of Philadelphia doesn't have to be as spooky as today’s holiday: Our friends around the web helped us imagine future possibilities our city can flourish. This week, we realized just how much business the PHS Pop Up Garden brought to South Street West as the space evolved over the previous 4 years. Could you imagine a pedestrian street in Market East? Or even a family-friendly Philadelphia? And the way bike commuting continues to go up, can we expect less cars on the road? Now back to reality. More importantly: what will we do this weekend?  Lucky for us, this weekend is crawling with fun! Philly Weekend Events October 31-November 2:

How to Score a Hot Fall Trend for Under $15

We aren't kidding with the price and found all the pieces in our own city. We'll show you how with our Mission: Local Thrift Store  With the fashion trends changing from season to season, it can be hard to maintain the look when you’re on a budget. Who doesn't want top trends without the price tag? Luckily, we have a solution without burning a hole in your pocket. Whether you're searching for a 'new' piece inspired by your Grandpa's sweater or high-waisted jeans, there's no better place to shop for vintage clothes than your local thrift store. Thrift shops hold so many unknown treasures all for an unbelievable cost. In order to stay ahead of the fall trends, we took a trip over to the Salvation Army in Manayunk and scouted clothing options. Fortunately, the thrift shop is home to many wonders just waiting for a new closet home. We found an overwhelming selection of clothes in a wide range of colors and sizes. While at Salvation Army, we pulled an outfit together that can be seen at any college campus during the fall, all for under $15.00.  Find out how, after the jump!

Happy Friday! This week, we learned from Next City that New York has a StreetsPAC for more pedestrian & biking friendly cities. Perhaps Philly can follow suite? Thanks to Be Well Philly for confirming our Runner's High and Hidden City Philadelphia for taking us to an underground 4-million gallon sewage & storage tank. And obviously, Generocity's piece about chickens from Nic Esposito made us rethink our compost bins (but not really...) Find out what to do over the weekend, after the jump!
