RITTENHOUSE SQUARE—National hair and beauty chain Lush Cosmetics is celebrating its recent move down Walnut Street with a Grand Re-Opening Party on Saturday, from 12pm to 5pm. The event promises limited-edition Avowash shower gel that's only available for purchase during the party, plus complimentary in-store face treatments.
EAST PASSYUNK—Stop into South Philly vintage shop Era Atomica anytime this weekend, and take a ride on the store's butt blaster. Shake your booty on the old-school exercise machine for a $0.25 donation (you can always give more), which will be donated directly to a Philadelphia animal welfare organization. Era Atomica will match the donation at the end of the weekend.
