After a long week of “Turning Clicks into Clients,” the Google Girls take a break from all things Digital by spending our weekends out-and-about in the city of Philadelphia. One of the best things about city living is all the opportunities and events that the city has to offer each weekend, especially in the summertime. From street festivals and concerts to pop-up beer gardens and local attractions, the Google Girls have the official guide to your weekend in the City of Brotherly Love.

Parks on Tap Pop-up Beer Garden (July 5th – July 9th)
For those who do not know, Parks on Tap is Philadelphia’s first and very own traveling beer garden. Each week the pop-up beer garden relocates to a new venue, aiming to unite the Philadelphia community as well as give back to its neighborhood parks. Food, beer, wine, and snacks are provided to visitors along with outdoor lounges and hammocks. As if that wasn’t enough… the event is dog-friendly! This weekend Parks on Tap is traveling to the Shofuso Japanese House & Garden for a weekend filled with family friendly activities and outdoor events.
