oPPS this published before I was ready, damn new blogger.

Oy the summer is almost over and the Social Season is upon us, a very busy season for I had an awesome summer, even though I could never find the time to go away which was bad for this seasoned traveler. There was so much to cover, uncover and what was Miley Cyrus up to? I did enjoy those Miley Cyrus fans. (BTW I will write the final Paranoia chapter on Friday. I have lot of fun stories some I couldn’t write about while they were here)  Today’s entries are a combination of two events that I want to get in before I get slammed in September. Have a great last week of Summer.

R2L is proud to partner with local
celebrities and their favorite charities.
($1 from each drink will be donated to the celebrity’s
charity of choice

Last week my friend Erin Como flew in from Nashville, Tn, where she is the traffic reporter for Fox 17, to spend a day with her Philly friends before she went on a weeks long trip to Cape Cod. (so jealous.) A bunch of us met up for lunch at Parc including Vasiliki Tsiouris, Sheena Parveen, Alissa Ingram (congratulations on her engagement), Jillian Mele, Justin Pizzi and Erin Como. that evening we all headed over to Opa restaurant (1311 Sansom Street) for a bite to eat and lots of fun. Opa is a like a clubby bar after 10PM
