Under the Radar

There’s plenty to do on St. Patrick’s Day that doesn’t involve drinking or anything green.

TUESDAY, March 17

March Madness

Enjoy the start of March Madness at Thirteen, a stylish new bar in the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown.

Celebrity artists will also be featured (although they have nothing to do with rock music), like Muhammad Ali, Tennessee Williams and Bill Maher. All pieces are available for purchase, and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to charity. The show ends Sunday, March 29.
