2012 Philly RAW Artist Awards at G Lounge – Fashion, Fun & Frolic
This week I was busy, out of town, getting no sleep, writing columns for my other outlets, working with lots of clients, tweeting too much and watching gossip girls from season 1 to current. Thank you so much for a fantastic, super dooper week, even though I was tardy every day. Next week I will catch up.
Last night the RAW Artist Awards were held at G lounge in Philadelphia. I’ve covered this monthly event several times on PCC, as each show or exhibition is new and exciting. Raw Artist is a national organization, every last Thursday in Cities across the nation they put on a show celebrating art and it’s creative industries like fashion, art, music, make up and hair. It’s a 18+ ; 21 to drink. Fashionable attire kinda night & did I mention fun? $15.00 online, $20.00 at the door. For those people who say they can never meet anyone, well let your hair down and come to one of these events. They’re laid back, non-pretentious and from all walks of life.
Maria Papadakis is co-host of this monthly event, along with Frederick Calalang who is the City Director for RAW of the Philadelphia Raw Artists.

Raw Artist is growing in popularity, so much so that in 2013 it will be held at Lit at 2nd and Spring Garden every last Thursday of the night. I’m so bummed as it was an easy stop off for me on my nightly excursions, but I will make it a destination because it really is one of those unique events that Philadelphian’s celebrate. It’s open to the public so check it out. The last show at G Lounge is 12/13/12

Mr Williams my cab driver singing a song. He told me that he knows everyone that works the door at my building and unfortunately one of them was there at 130AM and interrupted his song. He gave me his number so he can pick me up next time.
