Title: 20 Items (6-19-09) sponsored by AMERICAN MALE SALONS

Time to start thinking positive: there is a yellow thing in the sky and he will start liking us this weekend. 

This week moved quickly for me.  Eric Clapton/Steve Winwood Friday, my first wakeboarding turns of the season, MojitoFest, and watched the Hangover.  And there is that thing called work and watching the Phils have an awful week.

Here is an interesting link.  Guys should be happy and females need to move out Philly: http://www.epodunk.com/county_data2/mw39.html

I saw a great 1000 square foot condo at $225,000 in the warehouse district if anyone has interest….. - Mark

"On Joy & Sorrow: The Glass Prism Story" is a music documentary that was written, produced and directed in a collaborative effort by Bob Ross, Sarah Fulton and Matt Lewis.  The documentary tells the story of The Glass Prism, a Pennsylvania band who rose to rock 'n roll fame in the 1960s using the poetry of Edgar Allan Poe as the lyrics to its progressive rock tunes but were quickly snuffed out like so many bands of the time. Now, the guys are back and ready to rock again. “On Joy & Sorrow: The Glass Prism Story” will premiere next week at the Philadelphia Independent Film Festival at the below two venues. The filmmakers are planning to attend one or both of the viewings for a question and answer session.  (High Definition, 16:9 NTSC, 56 min, Not Rated) Please check the OJ&S Blog for up-to-date information.

A Taste of Philadelphia is a chance to indulge in fine dining on a fast food budget with entrees that might cost $20 or more in fine dining venues but each taste here is five dollars or less. This event design allows visitors and participants to stroll the Great Plaza at Penn’s Landing while sampling delicious food and learning more about what makes Philadelphia food famous. Plus, each day of the event will be accompanied by exciting live stage entertainment.

19) Society of Progressive Drinkers

The Society of Progressive Drinkers (SoPD) June Meeting will be Thursday, June 25, 2009 at the London Grill in the Fairmount/Art Museum Area!!!
For our June meeting we were venturing for into the quadrant of Philadelphia north of Market Steet and west of Broad Street (eagled-eyed SoPDers will remind me that Tir Na Nog, which technically meets those same specifications, was the first time we did so). London Grill is especially known for their part in planning the annual Bastille Day at Eastern State Penitentiary – for my money the best day of the year to be in Philadelphia. They make a special effort to buy local food products, and are giving us a $2 Kronenbourg special! Quelle affaire étonnante!
Don’t forget to invite everyone you know…
Thursday, June 25, 2009!
starting at 8, stick around until whenever
The London Grill, 2301 Fairmount Ave, Fairmount: http://www.londongrill.com/
