Fellow Real Housewives fan, PR Natasha Dunbar, ask Lauren Tosti about Zumba and she’ll tell you how much she loves it, probably as much as Albert Lee, who is the head concierge at the Visitor Center, loves Philadelphia. Albert is well on his way to becoming Philly’s resident expert on everything Philadelphia. I’m not going to reveal his tricks, but he wears out a lot of sneakers walking the blocks to see what’s happening. He also has a very informative blog appropriately titled: Ur Philly Pal
I’m a huge fan of Maven Mag and wish I had know that Alexis Siemons was editor at large, I had a lot of questions.

It was a very nice gathering, wish I could have stayed longer, but I was off to another event, conveniently located across the street “Let Them Eat Cake” which was delicious. Where Magazine publisher, Laura Burkhardt also played an important role in that event as she was a judge of the wedding cake contest so our paths crossed several times that night. Philadelphia still exciting and busy in this economy. For me it was a perfect night dinner at Thirteen, dessert at “Let Them Eat Cake” (not too much there, it’s almost swimsuit season)
