Cute Instagrams of Dogs at Paws Mutt Strut Saturday

As I mentioned on my WOGL Friday segment, the PAWS 11th Annual Mutt Strut happened on Saturday, October 14, 2017 at the Navy Yard. Dogs and the people who love them enjoyed a fall festival and walked the scenic route in the Navy Yard some in their cutest Halloween finest and funniest. Last year’s Mutt Strut raised over $120,000 for PAWS’ lifesaving efforts.

PAWS is Philadelphia’s largest rescue partner and is working to make it a no-kill city. The Mummers helped kick off the Paws Mutt Strut this morning. I’ve chosen 10 of my favorite outfits.
I was bow wow when I realized I couldn’t make the event but yippy when I found people had photo their pooches

Franklin Institute Celebrates Mardi Gras with Costumed Guests & An Armadillo

Everyone once in awhile I notice that the Franklin Institute has a fun quirky “Science after Dark” party. I got back from my trip on Monday night and was excited to see that they were having one for Fat Tuesday aka Mardi Gras the following night.

The sold out event attracted many folks from around our area. I especially enjoyed capturing people who dressed for the themed night.


That’s a clue, if you want to appear in any of my outlets, dress to for the theme. PS The Red Ball is coming, wear red. These folks broke the rules for me, they put their masks on. Know they you are not to wear masks inside the Franklin Institute. Don’t worry they immediately put them back on the top of their head.


The Elmwood Zoo was there with a couple animals. Here’s an Armadillo


There were a lot of demonstrations. This was one of my favs, he’s explaining various crimes committed near Bourbon Street, and
medical details on each crime. It was fascinated and horrifying at the same time.


These folks were trying out the frozen frozen graham crackers,

which when eaten would cause dragon’s breath

Ohhhh the Flower Show is coming. I love the Flower Show. I love that I get to partner with them on promoting it cause I love the flower show. It starts Saturday, March 11 and runs through March 19th. There’s lot of fun activities including their new party this year, “Flowers After Hours” on Saturday night at 9:30PM. You get to see the flower show at night, with less crowds, plus dance to the tunes with Best of Philly’s DJ Robert Drake and rocker Tommy Conwell; sip and sample spirits from Fine Wine & Good Spirits; save a Snap by creating your own life-size floral crown; and geek out over unexpected ’90s themed games with the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Philadelphia Orchestra and The Franklin Institute. UrbanStems will pop-up with a show-stopping floral selfie-wall. The evening will be hosted by Kristen Kurtis, ’90s enthusiast and XPN morning show host. Plus there’s a costume party, and you know how I feel about that.

I have a feeling I’m going to see this on St. Patrick’s Day as wellFranklin

Yum frozen marshmallows. I tried them too.


There is wine samplings, but if you want a full glass there were plenty of bars set up for spirits and snacksFranklin

There were also play stations. These folks are making bracelets or as I like to say, memories


They have a new sports exhibit, which is really cool and interactive. Kids and adults will really love it.

The Franklin Institute has a young friends organization called “Innovators”

If you’re a donor to the museum, at a certain level you get a “key”
