Girls Rock Philly Showcase – Saturday, August 9

Girls Rock Philly, a week long summer day-camp for female rockers ages 9-17, will hold their showcase at Girard College this Saturday. See the mini rockers rock out! They’ve formed bands, written songs, practiced hard, and learned jump kicks, for goodness sake! 6-8pm. There is a $5 donation requested.

Goodbye, Wanamaker’s Cafe

Today  was the last day for the cafe.  The first restaurant inside a department store was in the original Wanamaker’s Grand Depot.

I bought out all their wonderful scones (to freeze) and had their carrot cake for lunch. Wednesday, I had my last tea there, complete with tea sandwiches.  I will miss the cafe…
