No back to work blues this week! Party season starts early in 2017 in Philadelphia and we’ve got the info hot off the wire. Hair O’ the Dog has been voted one of the best events in Philadelphia for the past few years and this year promises not to disappoint. With an impressive entertainment line-up, a celebrity caterer and new venue, The Fillmore will host one of the biggest parties that Philadelphia has ever known on Saturday, January 7, 2017. The festivities begin at 8pm and you definitely don’t want to miss a moment of what promises to be an epic event. Here are the top five reasons why you don’t want to miss this year’s Hair O’ the Dog…

1.) Hair O’ the Dog is like prom… but for adults and with an open bar!!! How often do you get a chance to put on that fancy dress or don that dapper suit that’s been in the back of your closet since you bought it? Hair O’ the Dog is the perfect excuse to glam it up in your finest as you party like a rockstar. Plus the four hour top shelf open bar doesn’t hurt!

2.) It’s a party with a purpose. This year, a portion of the proceeds will benefit Bianca’s Kids. Established in 2010, Bianca’s Kids grants wishes to foster, sick and needy children. If a child has been displaced by the foster system, struck by tragedy, or affected by disability, then he or she is one of Bianca’s Kids.To date, Bianca’s Kids has served over 13,000 children in New Jersey and around the U.S.

3.) Eat like a celebrity! Each year hundreds of Hollywood’s elite are treated to an Oscar after-party catered by world-renowned Chef Wolfgang Puck, luckily you don’t have to travel to Hollywood to be treated like a star. This year’s Hair O’ the Dog guests will enjoy a gourmet buffet from Wolfgang Puck Catering.

4.) You can get low with the King of Crunk himself. Grammy-winning artist Lil Jon will get the crowd rockin’ with his cool beats and hot party anthems. The “Turn Down For What” and “Get Low” singer loves that Philadelphians know how to party. “Philly always has a great crowd, get ready to get lit at Hair O’ The Dog” says Lil Jon.

5.) The music and performances are guaranteed to get you dancing. In addition to Lil Jon, there will be performances from Electronic dance music sensation Dillon Francis, Australian Native VASSY and Philly’s own Rozes, known for her number one hit “Roses” featuring The Chainsmokers. Plus, some of the nation’s top DJs will be on hand spinning. Dance the night away with beats by local mainstage thrillers Clef & Canberra while TV personality and DJ Mr. Hollywood will be spinning in the “Foundry”, the exclusive VIP hide-a-way of the Fillmore, plus turntable temptress DJ Freezie will greet guests with her sensual style in the Ajax Hall.
