Things you've only dreamed of doing. Now available for one day only.
For the guys: Sorry, ladies. You'll have to sit this one out. Nicole Miller Philadelphia at the Bellevue (200 S. Broad St.) welcomes stylish men for personal shopping, gift-wrapping, cocktails and more from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. And since we're in the season of giving, 10% of all purchases will benefit the Garces Foundation, aiding the immigrant community.
For minimalism: In celebration of the 50th anniversary of composer Terry Riley's "In C," a composition centered around the note "C," the Curtis Institute of Music's string quartet in residence, the Aizuri Quartet, will collaborate with members of the school's Grammy-winning ensemble in residence, eighth blackbird, for a performance. The in-the-round show takes place at 6 p.m. at the Kimmel Center's SEI Innovation Studio (Broad and Spruce Streets).
For a product launch: Felt + Fat Ceramics and Reanimator Coffee have teamed up to unleash a seasonal clay coffee mug — perfect for all the piping hot coffee and cocoa you'll be sipping. From 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at Art in the Age (116 N. 3rd St.), shop the mug and other items at the Felt + Fat sample sale, while sipping on some coffee cocktails.
For an alternative performance: No sound. No music. Instead, lots of visuals and physical theater mark Swiss troupe Mummenschanz' program "40 Years," hitting the Annenberg Center (3680 Walnut St.) tonight at 7:30 p.m. Expect masked characters, colorful props and kid-friendly entertainment.
For laughs: Deadpan, music and art influenced Demetri Martin brings his Comedy Central-appropriate stand up routine to the Keswick Theatre (291 N. Keswick Ave., Glenside, Pa.) tonight for an 8 p.m. show.
