Title: 32 Items (5-13-11) sponsored by American Male Salons
Missed last week's edition....sorry. After some great weather this past week looks like some rain is going to mess up the next 10 days. :(
So, what have I been up to....? I am learning Twitter. I opened an account and will start using it in the coming weeks. I think you can follow me by searching my name if interested. I did do my first two organized runs in years (Out and Back and Broad Street). Did you know there were more females that ran Broad than males? 25224 Finishers - 11055 M / 14169 F. Attended another round of Phillies games before they left town. I think I have now see parts of 16 games at the ballpark so far this year - including one with mom and dad and the nephews for Mother's Day.
A few weeks ago, I mentioned a coold DJ event that sold out two nights at the Naval Yard. Was sent this video that I thought was worth sharing.
As always, if thinking about selling or buying a home, I ask that you talk with me. Never too busy to help.....Interest rates are the lowest they have been all year. Here is one of my recent projects up at Temple.

5) The 8th Annual Art Star Craft Bazaar
When: Saturday, May 14th from 11-6pm & Sunday, May 15th from 11-6pm
Where:Philadelphia,PA @ Penn'sLandingGreatPlaza - onColumbus Boulevard betweenWalnut Street andChestnut Street FREE TO ATTEND
The Art Star Craft Bazaar is an outdoor retail art/craft show that is organized & juried by Philadelphia’s Art Star Gallery & Boutique (www.artstarphilly.com). Over 100 local and national artists have been chosen to set up shop & sell their wares along the beautiful waterfront @ Penn’s Landing. Shoppers can expect high quality handmade goods that reflect the unique & often quirky aesthetic of Art Star, set against the backdrop of the sparklingDelaware river. Art Star has hand selected a diverse collection of artists that create anything & everything, including housewares, paper goods, dolls, prints, ceramics, clothing, accessories, paintings/drawings, sculpture, and many other one-of-a-kind curiosities. All items have been handmade from a variety of mediums that include fabric, clay, glass, wood, paper and much more.
A Little History In 2003, recent Tyler School of Art grads Erin Waxman (BFA, ’99) and Megan Brewster (BFA, ’00) were searching for places to show and sell their work. They quickly realized that the options were few and far between. They decided to create a new venue for themselves and like-minded-artists in Philadelphia and the Art Star Craft Bazaar was conceived; an open-air market, where emerging artists & crafters could sell their wares to the public. Twenty vendors were chosen on a first-come, first-serve basis and the event was held at The First Unitarian Church over the course of a few weekends that summer. During the show, Megan and Erin met many talented artists who were all looking for viable venues for their work.
The pair opened up Art Star Gallery & Boutique in November of 2004 to help fill the void for emerging artists across the country. The Art Star Craft Bazaar continued to grow over the years and has served as an extension of the gallery.
“There are so many talented artists that we have met along the way. We wish we could show and represent all of them, but our space is limited. The Bazaar enables us to introduce even more interesting artists to the public, that we may be unable to show in the gallery due to space limitations,” states Megan. The show is now juried and boasts over 100 artists annually.
Music Coordinator Jack McBrearty of bands The Mural & The Mint, and Songs for Lonesome Hearts has curated a line-up of local bands to entertain guests throughout the day. Select local eateries such as A Full Plate Café & The Soy Café will offer tasty vegetarian/vegan food amongst the standard festival pizza/hot dog faire. More surprises throughout the day can be expected, so bring the entire family! We hope to see you there!
Shoppers can expect affordable, high quality, and extremely unique goods from a variety of media. In its 6th year, The Art Star Craft Bazaar has becomePhiladelphia's most cutting edge craft fair. Come see it for yourself!

7) PHILLY ON TAP WALKING TOUR NAVIGATES MAZE OF CRAFT BEERS AND BARS DURING PHILLY BEER WEEK Top-Rated Philadelphia Urban Adventures Tour To Run Daily During Beer Week and All Year
Drinking beer in Philadelphia can be intimidating for all but the most studied imbiber. It’s hard to know where to start, or where to go after that, when there are more than 400 craft-beer bars to choose from. During Philly Beer Week, the options get even more overwhelming: 170 venues, 27 breweries, and if last year is any indication, more than 1,000 events. But it doesn’t have to be so confusing.
With its Philly on Tap walking tour, top-rated Philadelphia Urban Adventures (PUA) introduces city dwellers, suburbanites and visitors from distant lands (like Maryland) to some of the city’s favorite beer bars, brewpubs and local brews. As an official participant of Philly Beer Week, PUA will offer Philly on Tap every day throughout the festival, which runs June 3-12, 2011, and every day after that. The guided tour departs from City Hall at 5pm and lasts for two hours or until walkers finish their beers and get motivated to move on from the last stop.
Tours stop at three culturally meaningful bars and brewpubs to sample local beers and learn how each location helps Philadelphia designate itself as “America’s Best Beer-Drinking City.” When they have time, bar owners and bartenders grab a pint with the tour and chat about the ways craft beer is a pervasive part of the city’s lifestyle, from the coziest neighborhood pub to the most sprawling of tourist trap. As groups travel between locations, approachable and knowledgeable guides share little-known historical tales about the commercial boulevards and the cobblestoned residential pathways they traverse. At the end, guides can act as “concierges” to their guests by giving customized advice on where they can go next.
Lynette, a 30-ish PUA client from Vancouver is one of many to rave about PUA’s tours on Trip Advisor, which ranks the company as #3 out of 231 Philadelphia attractions. “Our guide was fantastic! He was so passionate about his city and country and was so enthusiastic and energetic!! He made us fall in love with Philly!! He was a wealth of knowledge and was happy to share it with us. He took us to places you would not know to go to and he gave us wonderful insight into the past and present of Philadelphia.”
Philly on Tap costs $30 per person, including drinks, and limits its groups to 12 people or fewer. Advance reservations are required. Finally, Philly Beer Week participants can truly relax. Philly on Tap takes the pressure out of navigating the city’s beer maze while teaching them a little something along the way.
