Eat Pretty With Jolene Hart at Anju Threads

The event was held at Anju Threads, a
threading salon at 1126 Walnut St, Philadelphia, PA 19107.

There was a nice spread via WholeFoods with delicious treats.
Anju Treohan (l), told me that that there is no sewing involved in
threading of eyebrows, which I thought did. Thank god, I’d be sweating
through that process.

 Many guests were on hand, and I’d have their names if I didn’t lose that notebook. Granted the next day was my bday so I was verklempt that week.
The always stunning Kharisma McIlwaine was there.
 The paparazzi were on hand to catch the action
Emily Tharp, was tweeting up a storm and pretty in green: Jamillah of was snapping for her blog.

 Thanks to Skai Blue Media for the invite to this unique event.

Show Your Soft Side is a campaign
pits tough guys with adorable cats and dogs to promote the fight
against animal abuse. Its slogan is “Only a punk would hurt a dog or
cat,” and this week, Philly athletes are proving they’re no punks.
They’re tough guys with huge hearts. Above Steve Morrison (Preston & Steve @PrestonSteve933) Poses with his cat, Mia, for the billboard for the campaign. It’s on 95N in Philly going towards NE.


9th Annual East Passyunk Avenue Car Show Links

Sunday was the 9th Annual East Passyunk Avenue Car Show and was the 2nd year I photographed the event. This year the weather again played with the time, and the show, scheduled to start at NOON started an hour early, which was good for me as last year I got there late and missed a lot of good shots.

 Even though I got there at 11AM, I still missed shots, the event seemed larger and much more crowded this year. 
  A lot of my photos ran in columns in various media outlets in Philly.

Roger Daltrey & Joan Jett @Kimmel Center A Few Clips

I regret not going last night, I love the WHO, I was a kid of the 70s and WMMR and really goofed by not going to last night’s concert. I can relive the night here at PCC with my fav songs, and at the bottom I have a link to other clips that folks shot. All on really decent cameras I must say.   Here’s a shot from Dafni who does the PR for the Kimmel Center.

in the buckets for the win

it was stressful for me too just watching it

This exercise had participants slingshotting footballs

into the goal zone where team mates were to catch them in these bags. That was fun.

Then there was a dance off with the “Green Men” The shorts were to protect the junk from jangling too much in public.

 The Dance Off – sorry it’s all over the place, it was a hot mess everywhere.

the Famous Philadelphia Challenge to Adult-Tricycle Races, sixteen (16)
enthusiastic corporate teams battled to not only earn the coveted title
of ‘Philadelphia’s Phunnest Company,’
but for the opportunity to raise money for the Philadelphia’s Ronald
McDonald House and the countless families who benefit from the
organization’s work. 

On to the bike races to the 50 yard line and back.

It’s not as easy as you think and there were a lot of spills

But everyone seemed to have fun.

 The Philadelphia Ronald McDonald House, has been
supporting the families of seriously ill children since 1974. The Ronald
McDonald House relies on individual and corporate donations for over 90
percent of their funding. No one is ever turned away due to the
inability to pay.
