Mini Wawa, Spotted Justin Timberlake, The Crystal Tea Room, Congrats Dones!!

Good day Sunday. Probably the last day to really enjoy the Cherry Trees in full bloom. I noticed that it was a shot blast of color and the trees outside my window have gone green. They’re so good knowing the time of the trees. Here’s some info.

In October I broke the story that Wawa was going to open near 16th and Chestnut Streets, and last week they officially announced it, with a twist. It’s going to be a mini Wawa, with a Take Out Window facing 16th Street for pre-orders. What a great idea especially for those running late for work. Read all about the new mini mart Wawa at Philly Mag.

Justin Timberlake at Wells Fargo last weekend, grabbed Alicia Conron’s friends cell phone and took a selfie of the gang. Unlike other times he’s played her, he didn’t stay over, just drove down and back from NYC.

Congratulations Emily Costa Dones, community relations at Sugarhouse and Jose Dones, Phila Police Officer who were married Friday night, and then celebrated with friends at The Lucy.

Last night I photographed The Little Smiles Stars Balls 2019. What an amazing, moving event where kids who are fighting chronic illnesses are pampered and treated as stars for an evening gala raising funds for Little Smiles mission. MY jaw dropped when I saw the Crystal Tea Room (Finley Catering) cocktail area, it was completely renovated, looking nothing like what it had been only a month before. It’s beautiful. The other space was gorgeous too, but always bottle necked during a packed cocktail hour.
