Title: 19 Items (5-29-09) sponsored by Miller Lite: Great Taste.....Less Filling
Hope everyone enjoyed their summer kick off. Avalon was a good time as always. No rain to complain about but could have used some more sunshine. I jumped out early on Monday to catch the Phillies game. Also went to the game on Wednesday night. With those two losses, I am now a resounding 1-4 in games attended this season. A reminder that Center City sips starts June 3rd. It is always a fun day - especially when the weather is nice. http://www.centercityphila.org/incentercity/sips2009/index_p2n.php Is anyone planning to catch any Phish shows this summer?
