Is it just us, or does it feel like some weeks there are a million ladies events in the city, and other weeks there’s next to nothing? Lucky for you, this is the former: happy hours and parties galore to close out Pride Month with a bang! (and hopefully, not a hangover)
June 27: Stimulus presents Happy Hour at Valanni
12th and Spruce
5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
The ladies of Stimulus are helping to make your hump day better with a FREE and extended happy hour at Valanni. If you haven’t been there yet, a) have you been living under a rock? and b) seriously … have you? Usually dominated by gay men (like many of the spots in the gayborhood), the ladies are getting a chance to make our mark. Happy hour specials include $5 premium drinks and half-price bar tapas (the crispy brussel sprouts are to die for!)
June 28: Fresh edition presents Poise: Philly Passion
American Sardine Bar
1801 S. Federal Street
7 p.m. – 11 p.m.
Poise is a professional mixer for the LGBTQ community, to promote networking opportunities & interact with the creators of current and upcoming projects. Put another way, it’s an excuse to come check out the newly opened American Sardine Bar in Point Breeze, have a few drinks, & pretend to be really engaged & interested when we present about Phillesbian.com around 9 p.m. We promise to keep it short & attempt to be somewhat funny. Music by DJ Jovi. Plus, half off all Philly brewed beer, like PBC’s Point Breeze Summer Lager Ale. $5 cover.
June 28: Community Night at Tabu with SisterSpace
Tabu Lounge & Sports Bar
200 S. 12th Street
If you’re planning to head to SisterSpace Weekend in September, or just want to mingle with some ladies & show off your mean karaoke skills, head on over to Tabu. Tabu will donate 15% of all proceeds to SisterSpace. $3 domestics and $5 Jameson shots/cocktails all night long. $5 cover after 9 p.m. includes one drink ticket to give you that extra boost of courage to belt out Beyoncé.
June 30: Pulse Events Pride Party
11th & Samson
10 p.m. – 2 a.m.
Close out the gayest month of the year with drinks & bootyshaking, as the ladies of the newly launched Pulse Events present Pride Party. Drink specials until midnight include $3 Miller Lite/Coors Light as well as $5 well drinks. Plus, if you get in the door before 10:30, the ladies of Pulse will give you a complimentary Miller Lite or MGD64. And everyone knows how much lesbians love their Miller Lite! Music by DJ Ka$h.
