PhillyGossip: Meek & Nicki; IBEW, Info on Oscar Viewing Party, 80s Pop Stars DJ Jazzy Jeff & Debbie Gibson in Feb & Fun Events #PCCBuzz

Good Tuesday morning. Let’s catch up with our friends, neighbors and notables in Philly.

The winning streak is over, Meek Mill and Nicki Minaj attended a Sixers game on Saturday night, but they lost in a Kanye West nail biter to the Warriors 108 to 106. Bummer. Friday night the duo went out to dinner. I asked the twitter poster if this was Ms Tootsie, but no answer. I think it is. Thoughts?
 The IBEW 98 just donated $20,000 to the Ronald McDonald House.
 Oh that crazy Special Assembly Occupancy License was killed. Not since Table 31 started dance parties in it’s main dining room, did I really ever hear of a flagrant violation needing such a bill, and I can assure you more than one politician was seen at those dances. I remember in NYC they had these laws, and signs up. No one was allowed to even tap their toes if it looked like dancing cause they could be fined. It was like being in “Footloose.” 
Which by the way The Bacon Brothers will be at Union Transfer on Thursday for a fundraiser for a Friends of the Rail Park
fundraiser. Michael and Kevin Bacon both grew up in Philly. Their sister Helga still lives here. Tickets are still available, I will be there shooting the event. 
Speaking of FUNDRAISERS, I will be photographing the next four events. When I run into readers they sometimes tell me they wish they knew about so and so, and such and such an event. I always dreamed of doing a “public” calendar, but I really don’t have time. So I will do my best to post fav events, especially ones I will be photographing. 
Academies rED Fest is having a cute Coffee & Cocktails party at Saxby’s Headquarters on 2/11/16.  They always have fun, high level biz networkorking peeps, as well as a few BOLD FACE NAMES like Keith Leaphart, Marisa Magnatta & Luke Butler
$30 or 2 for $50
Come out, network and support a good cause.

DJ Jazzy Jeff is going to be performing this weekend at Valley Forge Casino Resort on February 20 at Cheers for Chops. Tickets Last year the special guest was Salt & Pepa and the year before Rob Base, which reminds me…
Rob Base and Pretty Poison are performing with Debbie Gibson at Harrah’s West Chester Valentine’s Eve. OMG it’s more Joy than Pain, Catch Me I’m Falling, I thought it was Only In My Dreams that I’d ever see Debbie Gibson in concert in my life. I’m so there. Who wants to go?
TICKET INFO HERE (I still have the Debbie Gibson self titled album)
Yeah, I love a good Oscar Veiwing Party, but don’t call it that cause there’s legalities or something, so they’re calling it Awards Night Party & Screening. Arrive in style
for the red carpet pre-awards show in the lobby. Sip bubbly and
cocktails, taste small bites, and mingle. 

The live awards ceremony will be projected on the biggest screen in
Philadelphia. There will be games and lots of fun, including live
entertainment and special guest appearances from the Bingo Verifying
Divas and partial proceeds from the event benefit AIDS Fund, sounds like everyone’s a winner!
