Night Club
$$
“There's always something different going on upstairs. Tuesday nights are West Philadelphia Orchestra's Balkan Dance Party--a brass band of 10-ish people play joyful and exuberant gypsy jazz/klezmer/traditionally inspired Eastern European music, and those who wish to do so get in their enthusiastic and sweaty dancing. Other nights are typically burlesque shows (including some with male performers), other local bands, occasional theater events.”

Gym
“The Sporting Club at the Bellevue has a swimming pool. They can do a 1 month membership but all their memberships come with a $75 joining fee that they don't waive. The monthly fee would be $112 so for 1 month it would cost ~ $187 per person. Unfortunately, I don't know of another option than this. ”
