Did you know that the Next Great City Coalition will host its Philadelphia Mayoral Candidates’ Forum from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Pennsylvania Convention Center? If you did, great. If not, well you do now!

The eight-year-old coalition of more than “100 civic associations, labor unions, businesses, public-health organizations, environmental nonprofits, faith-based organizations and social-service groups” advises attendees to get to Room 108 AB via the entrance at 12th and Arch streets early.

Doors for the event — which will be moderated by WHYY’s Dave Davies — open at 5 p.m.
