You’re special. Unique. Fabulous. Only some off-the-beaten-path activities will do for you and your friends. Below is a list of suggestions for a few who are just as cool as you, champ. They’re recurring events (save the one Sunday), so you don’t have to try to do them all in a week, but it’d be pretty badass if you did.


National Mechanics (22 S. Thrid St.)

Starts: 9 p.m.

National Mechanics Monday Night Club is a self-described “clusterfuck” of bands and artists. Always something different, the ever-changing lineups will keep you on your toes.


Apollinare (1001 N. Second St.)

Starts: 8 p.m.

If you never got to check out Ortlieb’s Jazzhaus before it closed and feel too young to head into Chris’ Jazz Cafe, hit up this spot for a four-hour jazz block featuring quartet Peppe Merolla, who used to call Ortlieb’s home.


Q-Lounge (1234 Locust St.)

Starts: 10 p.m.

Werq every Wednesday and possibly win prizes at a great drag show featuring NYC drag super star Mimi Imfurst and DJ Salotta Tee.


Atlantis, The Lost Bar (2442 Frankford Ave.)

Starts: 8 p.m.

The always filthy and irreverant “Irish John” quiz you on alcoholism, Christianity and potatoes during his always-spirited Quizzo at the always-awesome Atlantis in Kensington.


Jolly’s Dueling Piano Bar (2006 Chestnut St.)
