#PhillyFive Things to Do: March 8, 2015

Did you Saturday too hard? Take a breather today.

Did you Saturday too hard? Take a breather today.

For a preview: Before the Midatlantic Wine and Food Festival officially begins on Friday, March 13, get taste of what's to come with samples from local chefs and winemakers from Hotel Du Pont, Classic Cake and Crow Farm and Vineyard. Wake up and get to Wilmington's Community Education Building (1200 N. French St., Wilmington, Del.) by 11 a.m. The event runs until 2 p.m.

For families: It's a multi-sensory day at Philadelphia's Magic Gardens (1020 South St.) when kids can craft their own instruments to use to make sound effects during a reading of "Locomotive," the children's book selection for the One Book, One Philadelphia community reading initiative. Readings run at 1 p.m., 2 p.m. and 3 p.m.

For florals: The snow doesn't seem to be going anywhere, but spring is in bloom at the Penn Museum (3260 South St.), where families get crafty with fashioning their own lotus flower and learning about its significance during a tour of the Japan Gallery. Tours depart at 1 p.m. and 3 p.m.

For a flick: So you want to be a producer? See Mel Brooks' comedy The Producers, in which two Broadway producers plan a scheme to put on a flop. Grab your popcorn at the Colonial Theatre (227 Bridge St., Phoenixville) for the 2 p.m. showing.

For sounds: The colorful, wordy and psychedelic Of Montreal come to Union Transfer (1026 Spring Garden) in support of their brand-spanking-new album Aureate Gloom. The show begins at 8 p.m.
