Good bar w/ good music for a couple old folks in Olde City

Hello trippers.

Suburbanites in town for the weekend on the 28th/29th/30th. In town for the DWB concert across the river. We are staying at Penns Landing and have bene there a couple times. Looking for recommendations for good places for the 40+ crowd (young at heart) in the Olde City area or a bit beyond.

Would like recommendatrions for the following:

1, Nice place to eat dinner around 8pm Friday night. We have been to Bistro Romano a couple times, down near South street, and would like to try something similar (doesnt have to be Italian or in that immediate area).

2. A friendly bar, not too young to hang out later after our Friday night dinner. Perferably with a band or good dj and dance floor.

3. Something querky to do after a very early lunch at Reading Market (to try and beat the crowds). I heard about a really weird museum. I recall some goofy tour Anthony Bordain took around the historic district omn the layover. Anyone ever take it.

4. A good late night place for Saturday night after the concert when we come back to the Philly side.

What is the Piazza at Schmidts like?

Thanks for reading my novel,

Ken

That's right. Mutter is the strange one that looks interesting.

Thanks!
