Last night was a glorious evening, indeed. Why? Because it was the first ever Philly Elite Open Mic Night! Held at the sweet 941 Theater in Northern Liberties, yelpers read some of their favorite reviews (and some they loved that were penned by others – Emily A got some big laughs re: Friendly’s!) as well as sang and displayed artwork. Paige W and Alicia F rocked it, Britt M and Adam C shared some amazing pieces, and everyone enjoyed the goodies so generously provided by our sponsors: Gray Kangaroo, Steaz, Tutta Bella Bakery and Rustica. And thanks to my brother from another mother, Kevin L, the DC Community Manager, who always rules.
Big thanks also to the local businesses who donated gift certificates and products for the raffle: Helium Comedy Club, The Pita Pit, Juju Salon and Organics, DnA Salon, Cashman and Associates, Smak Parlour, Keystone Concierge Services and Positano Coast. Wowza, those were some amazing goodies!
So many new faces (and cameras – yikes!) – it was so much fun. I can’t wait for the next one, but until then, thanks for the memories!
