Hope all is well this Wednesday for you. For those looking for somethingfun to do tonight, come out and picnc at Rittenhouse Square - BYOB. With good weather, Concerts in the Park is always a fun time. Also, it is center city sips as well.
I just got back from a fun trip to LA/SF. Went out to visit some friends and catch some Phish shows (Long Beach Civic Center in CA and Bill Graham Civic Center in SF). Two very different cities. SF has high temps in the mid 60s while LA was complaining that they were above 80.
Since my last email, I did make it to HQ at Revel. It was a Sunday night and the place was packed. If you like tecno type music, i think you will like it. Not sure if that is what they are playing all week.
Also spent a Saturday night in Margate a few weeks back. Was a rainy night but was disappointed with overall scene. Could not even wear flp flops at one of the bars on Saturday night.
Madonna is playing on 8/28. Anyone else planning on going? - Mark
