Race.
After the run a lot of the racers and supporters hung out on the famed Art Museum Steps. It’s there that I spotted a guy doing exercises, shot a few videos/photos and it went viral.
The best part, most every time this story appeared in the media it linked back to my original story where I mentioned that I took the photo at the end of the Clean Air Run. That made me very happy.

Arden Rose Launches Big City Closet Fashion and Lifestyle Blog with a Party at Calypso St. Barth

Arden Rose is a name that is destined to make it big. Beautiful, bold, stylish, kind and she knows style. She’s who I would call a one to watch. Born in Philly, raised a few blocks from Rittenhouse Row to parents involved in the community, culturally aware and doting on daughter Arden Rose. Arden is visually aware of the beauty that surrounds us and has a keen eye on picking out what should go where, especially on her. To channel all this creativity she created a blog called Big City Big Closet, and it launched last year. Originally the launch party was scheduled for December at Calypso St. Barth, but we had that darn ice storm and it was postponed until Spring of this year.

 The Cake Boss Buddy Valastro, Sarah Doheny and Nikki O’Connell. Cake Boss said look for his new bakery at 2101 Walnut Street to open in about 3 weeks, just in time for the summer and tourist season. Next to Rocky, The Liberty Bell and Betsy Ross’ house, I think Carlo’s Bakery Philly will become a must stop.
 Then there was this cake.
