ADORABLE ALERT: SOUTH STREET HOLIDAY WINDOW WINNERS & SANTA W/KIDS

Last week I was a judge for the South Street Business District’s holiday windows. South Street has really changed over the past few years into a family friendly shopping and eating district. More like a community, with families, students, retailers and most importantly people who care.

 I ran into Carol Fritz (we used to be paralegals together, in that other life I had) who was out enjoying the evening with a friend.
 I just love Santa and kids. Brings back lots of great memories.

 Love this shot. Sometimes I misplace my note book and in this case I did. I shot this last Sunday and had intended to put it on Philly.com but I was so slammed last week things got discombobulated, and now I can’t find my booklet, and I know I have it here but I needed to get this out there. But trust me the photos do it justice, there was lots to do and see. There’s was entertainment and

  free carriage rides
and the best part Santa. All you had to do was bring your own camera and wala you had your Christmas Card

Thanks to today’s advertiser: Cool Pix Photo Booth. If UR having a party think about renting one. They’re great fun, and your guests have a keepsake to take with them which is branded with ur company’s name.

 The guy on the right was from Philly, his gal was a student and the two on the left were visiting from Brazil. They loved South Street, and Philly in general, touring all the right spots including Christmas Village at Love Park.

 It’s always a fun time when face painting is involved.

  I really appreciate WXPN DJ Robert Drake for suggesting me, and for all the work Krystal Souvanlasy South Street Headhouse District assisting the judges and throwing an excellent party. Check out Robert Drake’s The Night Before on WXPN when he plays your old favorites, new favorites and unique holiday songs for the 19th Year. I love it, not only for the music, but for his stamina on air.

 Here are a few more windows that I liked. Armed and Dangerous
 Urban Princess Boutique
 Garland of Letters. I always loved this store. It must be in business 20+ years.
 Busybee. Cute window, but I love their merchandise. Head on down to South Street and check out everyone’s merchandise, relive your youth, create new memories, enjoy a lot of great shopping.

Did I mention the restaurants. There are delicious choices including Percy Street BBQ. I hadn’t been there in a bit so I stopped by as Mike, who was with me, loves Ribs. He loved it. While I was there they were into their 2nd day of “The 12 Cans of Christmas 12/1 – 12/12” which is happy hour 5PM – 7PM On 12/2 it was Sly Fox Night: Cory Reid, Sly Fox, Patrick Mullin, Sly Fox, Aric Ferrell, GM Percy BBQ, Nick Johnson and Max Sherman as Santa.
