Tuesday To Do: Events You Might Want To Attend – Jazz, Pie & Pups

So many people always ask me about events after they see my photos posted. I try and post them on all my social channels but it’s hard to do that, so every Tuesday I will publish a few here. I’ll give you the inside scoop if I’ve gone before, or what I think might be happening. I like Tuesday, cause I like to plan for the future and not look for things on Friday. Here goes…

The 3 Nerds Host Industry Night at Arrow Swim Club & It Was A Splash!!

The 3 Nerds hosted an Industry Night at Arrow Swim Club last night. Ryan Dorsey and Marc Mattera are two of the 3 Nerds, but Zach Seidman is an honorary Nerd (Like Shemp of the Three Stooges or Arnold of the Brady Bunch)
Arrow Swim Club closes at 9PM, but special interest groups can rent out the space for parties. I hear there have been a few doozies, I would include last nights

Splash with DJ Royale in the mix. (It was a Splash at Arrow Swim Club for Industry Night)The speedo isn’t dead and you don’t have to be Canadian to wear one.
Lovely ladies poolside Judy, Alice, Laura and Jen were there, and will be there next week too and might go swimming. Swimming at night sounds great, especially if your not at the beach.
As well as a few cool kids, in this case just a cool kid Jacky Wright soaks up the moonlight while relaxing in his own corner of the pool. Who needs more than 4 feet of water when you just want a water bed.
Even on their nights off the Whisper crew want to spend it together. GM Clark Maloney, Brett, Jason Serpes and crew
Philly2Night’s Rob Wright and Danielle Dubois were enjoying themselves.
as were many of the peeps in the industry. Drinks were a fair price averaging $5, but there were passed snacks including sliders and pita with humus that I enjoyed. The doors open at 9PM, but get there before 11PM if you have the munchies.
Many people I spoke to said it was there first time through the Arrow Swim Club doors. A few even told me they would be signing up next year. I told them the price had dropped to $750, but some already had shore house shares.
Spotted at the pool, not in it though, Courtney Grant, Jaye Hamel, Megan Smith, Reggie Barry, Anthony Casey, and Arrow Swim Club Mgr Megan Kearney
The three Shaina’s although one of them spells their name Shayna
What were you doing at 12:20AM cause the crowd was still going strong at the club. Surprisingly enough when you are outside on the street you can’t hear the music. I’m not sure if that holds true for the apartments on the top floor, but you’d never know there was a party going on down below.
Sunday’s I hear Tommy Up and crew has a party “Baruno and Brown present TROPHY WIVES – Arrow Swim Club’s ALL GIRLS pool party.” Starts at 2PM and 10% of the proceeds go to the GLBT community.
I ran into George Tsiouris (Opa Restaurant), cousin Demetri Pappas (who just bought Xochitl with his friend Peter Leontaras) and their friend who’s name I didn’t get. But just moved back from LA and is working at Serafina’s. He’s single girls and well go say hi to him. As you know PhillyChitChat.com has just celebrated it’s 4th Anniversary. Opa wants to throw me a party to celebrate. It’s next Thursday 7/21. To make sure everyone is comfortable I’m keeping the number at 80. So send me an email at buzz @phillychitchat.com and you will be entered in a raffle. The details are still be worked out but I know there’s a hour open bar involved and food. ThanksSee you next week:
