How’s it goin’ Friend?

From college bros to boys n butts, last week was BONKERS! We had a blast partying it up with you fine folks, especially with the beautiful peeps at BOS PRIMAL. Primal was of our biggest events ever & it couldn’t have gone any better!

In keeping with that sexy dance club energy, Saváge is returning to WOW this Friday for their Neon Demons party. As seductively stated in their description, “tantalizing angels of darkness have come to mesmerize and corrupt your soul by taking the stage and putting on live shows which will traverse from the exotic to the bizarre. Here you will see anything from glowing specters performing aerials, circus/sideshow and more, all to the backdrop of the very best in house, techno and progressive.” In addition to all of this, there will be body paint artists adorning guests throughout the evening. Doors at 10PM.

Saturday afternoon, Philly Unknown Project will be hosting a screening of the docuseries “The Damage Done” to raise awareness and show the humanization of an epidemic that has been destroying our communities. There will also be refreshments, discussions, & narcan training. Doors at 1PM.

Saturday night, the Matthew Law & the gang is back at WOW for another monthly installment of  Friends N Fam. Mr. Law will be bringin in DJ Raimu as the featured guest DJ, so things are gonna get WILD! Get your advanced tickets here. Doors at 10PM.

After our one week hiatus, our GO BIRDS! Indoor Tailgate will be back this Sunday for the Birds vs. Cowboys game. Come enjoy some free dogs, drink specials, tunes, pool, ping pong, baggo, & the sweet sweet feeling of watching the Cowboys lose 😉 Doors at 6:15PM.
