"Explode Your Melon Mondays" Does Kinda Have A Ring To It

  • PHS Pop-Up Garden 1438 South St. Philadelphia, PA USA

There are currently more YouTube videos of people exploding watermelons with rubber bands than… what? Grateful Dead bootlegs? Ramen recipes? DNC emails? We’re not sure, but we know it’s a lot. Enough to make you think that people exploding watermelons with rubber bands is something that only happens on the Internet.

Not so: At the Franklin Institute Watermelon Implosion! at the PHS Pop-Up Garden, actual science types will be on hand to help you do this, promising that it’ll be like “Jenga with a watermelon.” I’m just gonna let that stand, then, and simply add: There’s beer there, too.
