Goodbye, Kaybee

As I’m sure you’re aware, KB Toys is going out of business.

Kind of hits a soft spot with yours truly, who used to constantly go to the store at The Gallery when I was a kid.

Went in there yesterday. What’s left of the store is 50% off.

Check it out and get a piece of history, while you can.

Another piece of my childhood – like Woolworth and Roy Rogers – down the drain. ;-(

Free Screening of Philadelphia

On Saturday, May 5th, 2007 at 8:00 pm at the Prince Music Theater (1412 Chestnut Street) ActionAIDS will be celebrating their 20th anniversary by screening the award winning film Philadelphia, (1993), starring Tom Hanks and Denzel Washington.

Of course, then you’ll miss all the televised fun of experiencing the tax-night line at 30th Street PO, but I guess (this being one day past the original deadline and all) we’ve already missed that…..

Springing Ahead

Don’t forget that tonight is daylight savings time. If you have to be someplace tomorrow, don’t forget to set your clocks ahead an hour tonight, or you’re going to be very sad come morning.
