Looking for a bangin' happy hour? I could say I saw Alex Shaw when he performed with Alo Brasil at World Cafe Live but I think the word 'saw' implies passiveness. Everyone in my group of friends was dancing and bopping.

About what? The Economic Stimulus Plan... Brought to you by Innovation Philadelphia, the panel "will address important topics within the entrepreneurial community including how stimulus funds will be used for acquiring business loans, stimulate job creation, business tax incentives, and 'going green'"

First Friday. Again. If you're weary or wary of the traditional Old City scene or even the new FF hotness, the Piazza in NoLibs, venture to West Philly. The party: Celebrate the Philadelphia Folklore Project's 22nd birthday. The exhibit: "making and sharing traditional needlework, stitching patterns belonging to villages that no longer exist, local Palestinian women artfully sustain heritage and community through the beauty that is tatreez".

I've been to several Philly Songwriters events. I perennially leave them fired up with a desire to learn guitar and take voice lessons so that I might to be able to write songs and perform them and in doing so, connect. At this special annual event, the twelve finalists (out of 200 entries) will compete live. Winners will be booked at pre-eminent local music festivals like Bethlehem's Musikfest. If you are looking for a night-on-the-suburb, this would be it (4pm Sun. is sleepy time by Ardmore standards).

Sunday, June 7, 2009, 3PM - 2AM?!
Octo, 221 N Columbus Blvd., Philly, PA 
RSVP for guest list

From what I've heard, this is the dance party for those who dance because they dance.

"Who's Got Your Back: The breakthrough program to build deep trusting relationships that create success - and won't let you fail". Best-selling author Keith Ferrazzi of "Never Eat Alone" is coming to Philly. If you have any latent or active desire to become a better leader/networker/-er, you might benefit from getting out and attending this.

  1. Thanks for posting up the Sundae party. Glad it's summer now and plenty of Sunday dance opportunities.

  2. You're welcome! It's summer! One of these days I'm going to have to blast out of my apartment and get into your social orbit and go dance off at one of the interesting dance events you've mentioned. The hidden gem this week is the Philly Songwriters event.
