Hard to believe summer is winding down....
Back from a wonderful Hawaii trip celebrating my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. Took a cruise on Norweigian so it was great being able to see four of the Hawaiin islands.
Now just back at work and trying to get the last good days of summer in. And for those that do not know, I have my Temple properties along with other Philly based investment properties that keep me busy along with my Realtor clients (always looking for more buyers/sellers to work with).
I do want to highlight a great 43 minute CNN piece on marijuana. Click the link to see it without commercials. Might even make you cry.

16) Raise The Macallan at the Skybox, September 10-13
by Drink Philly on Aug 20, 2013 in Event Listing
What do you know about single malt Scotch whisky? If you’re already an aficionado, you know the smoky, rich liquid is something to seek out. If you haven’t yet been introduced to the nuances and flavors of Scotch, get ready to discover a new taste to savor. The Macallan is one of the most well-known whiskies in the world, and it’s landing in Philadelphia this September.
Gather a group of friends and RSVP for The Macallan tasting event, held at the Skybox in Fishtown from September 10–13. Just choose a time on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday here and you’ll be set to raise a glass of the Highlands whisky, which has been distilled and aged in Scotland since 1824.
The Macallan is available in several styles, each aged in sherry casks for a different length of time. The Macallan 18 is one of the most popular expressions of the whisky, hitting a sweet spot after being aged 18 years, but each one has its own charm. Join the whisky experts at the Skybox and find out all you need to know about this unique spirit.
Event Date: 09/10,09/11,09/12,09/13
Event Time: Varies
Location: The Skybox
Price: FREE with RSVP

18) PW Concerts in the Park
Wednesday, August 28
Nah, you’re not stupid. Of course you were on hand at last week’s phenomenal Concerts in the Park kick-off in Rittenhouse Square, and I bet you’re on deck for the second on Aug. 21—with Sundae’s fantastic Lee Jones, New Jersey crooner V (that’s “vee,” not the Roman numeral for five) and Philly diva Alma “Lady Alma” Horton. But it’s this one, people, the close-out Aug. 28 concert in Philadelphia Weekly’s annual three-week summer series, that heads will be talking about for months. Why? It’s hip-hop night. And after opening-show blessings from spirit warriors Leana Song and the Yoruba-chanting beauties accompanying the divine Doc Gibbs, followed by Jones’ sweat-inducing house party and orgasmic performances from a pair of singers extrarordinaire, as Redman declared on his iconic jam 20 years ago, it’s time for some action.
Who else but the brothers of Illvibe Collective to put in the work first? Mr. Sonny James and DJ Phish will provide the pre-gig warm-up, with playlists that underscore why their Body Rock parties at Kung Fu Necktie stay packed to the gills each month. Feared and revered local yokel Mic Stewart, whose full-length LP, Peaceworld, hit streets in April, is set to rock first, then Cee Knowledge—yes, he of Grammy Award-winning Digable Planets fame—brings his Cosmic Funk Orchestra to center stage with its fiery, futuristic anthems. Expect some surprises, fam—including a surprise special guest who’ll join them onstage before ending Concerts in the Park 2013 on the highest note possible. / KENYA BEVERLY
5pm. Free. Rittenhouse Square Park, Walnut St. between 18th and 20th sts. philadelphiaweekly.com
