For a long time I’ve been getting emails from PhillyFun Guide which offer 1/2 price tickets for shows, concerts, local tours and other activities in Philadelphia (and surrounding areas). The variety is always good and once in a while I find a deal that works with our schedule. The email comes once a week, usually Thursday night, and offers these deals for the following week. Not all offers are “kid friendly” but they have a good mix.
Last night my husband and I had the pleasure of seeing “Miss Saigon” at The WalnutStreet Theater for 1/2 price, parking was only $7 and there is a GREAT inexpensive “quick-service” mexican restaurant called El Fuego on the next block which a friend recommended to me (and he was right, it was delicious!). It was a great date night (definitely NOT a kid friendly show) and we saved a LOT by getting our tickets through PhillyFun Guide!
