For those that do not know - and it is impossible to find out on the Parking Authroity'ss website, there is free WED night parking in town. Check out #1.
Reindeer Romp (#3) is Thursday night. It is a really fun night for charity and I highly recommend it. If you believe in me at all, you should make the effort to come out.
Army/Navy is this weekend. #4 has a free navy ship tour while in port and of course Army/Navy is at 2:40. The pagentry of the game is great. The game is in Baltimore next year so make it this year or you will not have another chance until 2012.
For those getting the itch to go skiing, think about coming to Killington, Vermont with us over MLK weekend. www.Phillytrips.com
If you wanted to find a prostitute in the near future in Philly, this article let's you know where to go. I just heard about this project that is attempting to launch in Philly - using the old rail lines as green space. Thought it was worth sharing.
Did you know you can bring plastic bags to Rite Aid to recycle? It is true - did it this week for the first time.
Did you know that Stallone was just elected to the Boxing Hall of Fame?
And lastly, I was mentioned that I was working on a home in Mount Airy. The house is part of a federal program (Obama dollars) through the Philadelphia Redevlopment Authority. You can read up about the program here. Happy to say the house is already under agreement (prior to completion). I will get updated photos when we are complete later this month. Although I am busy with my own projects, I am never too busy to help you buy or sell a home....please talk to me if you are thinking of buying or selling a home. - Mark
