The Penn Museum hosts its fourth annual P.M. @ Penn Museum Summer Nights concert series, presented in the Museum's verdant outdoor Stoner Courtyard on the University of Pennsylvania’s idyllic campus. Just inside, guests can immerse themselves in the Museum's newest exhibition, "Black Bodies in Propaganda: The Art of the War Poster," before moving on to explore a world of art and artifacts, many obtained from archaeological and anthropological expeditions conducted by the Museum since its founding in 1887. Wandering its galleries, guests explore rare objects from the near and distant past, including those found in the Egypt (Sphinx) Gallery, home to a monumental granite sphinx circa 1200 BCE. Elsewhere, visitors marvel at intricate bronze and ivory carvings from West Africa's Kingdom of Benin, created between the 17th and 20th centuries, and intricately carved Maya stone stelae from pre-Columbian Mesoamerica. Changing exhibitions showcase travelling collections or draw from the Museum's vast collection of objects from every inhabited corner of the globe.
Culinary craftsmen at Fingers, Wings and Other Things grease ravenous fingers with hand-battered chicken tenderloins and zesty buffalo wings gracefully dunked into more than 12 homemade dipping sauces. The vibrant menu entices eyeteeth with handheld munchies such as fried pickles, mac 'n' cheese wedges, or buffalo shrimp glazed in mild, spicy, or extra-spicy sauce hot enough to garner a centerfold spread in Condiment Monthly. Guests can count their chickens before they're devoured with a basket of 10 fingers or 20 wings bedecked in a choice of savory sauces, including three types of barbecue, horseradish mayo, and honey mustard. A selection of seafood and chicken entrees heads up the main event with tasty picks such as the beer-battered fish 'n' chips platter or the grilled shrimp and chicken skewers, which unite meaty morsels more conveniently than a mailbox full of pork chops.

The winner of seven consecutive Best Custom Framing awards from CityVoter users, Masterpieces Fine Art & Custom Framing stocks more than 2,300 frames, including work by industry mainstay Larson-Juhl. Its skilled framers meld function and aesthetic form to secure works of art in everything from American hardwood to 22-karat-gold-leafing frames to metal handcuffs. Aside from framing, the staff also restores faded or creased photos to their original vivid states and brings photos to life by converting them into imitation oil paintings or watercolors that look like they were born from hours of meticulous brushstrokes.
For four decades, Putt-Putt Golf and Games has hosted friendly competition with four putt-putt golf courses and an array of games. Colorful blossoms and rocky waterfalls add character to 18-hole putt-putt golf courses, and creative hole designs add challenge. Groups of partygoers can request a staff chaperone to guide them through the labyrinth and hand over a treasure map to the course’s bounty of nougat-filled golf balls.
In the Game Zone, visitors settle competitive challenges at an air-hockey table or face-off against digital emissaries in the Terminator Salvation arcade game. Outside, the Jump Shot is a trampoline basketball hoop that launches athletes toward slam-dunks in lower orbit.
