Last day for “little red string”

Little Red String

In from my friends at the Asian Arts Initiative:

Monday, July 6th marks viewers’ last chance to see Jonathan and Kimberly Stemler’s the little red string, a brilliant cluster of lanterns installed at Carlton Street between 11th and 12th Streets in Chinatown North.

To honor the little red string, the Asian Arts Initiative will host an evening of music, food and celebration under the lanterns on Monday, July 6th from 7:00 to 9:00 pm.  Light refreshments will be provided.  Entertainment will include live music by local guitar players Annie Seng, Owen Zhong, and others.  Community members are encouraged to bring dishes to share in a potluck picnic and their own instruments and join in the jam session.  The event is free and open to the public.  Continue reading


Favorite Nutty Moments

Every time I see this ad featuring Mayor Nutter, I have to laugh. Blowing kisses just doesn’t seem like his thing. Too bad Red Tettemer couldn’t get the adorable Ms. Olivia Nutter to star in an ad promoting Philadelphia. She was super cute in that election ad (and many people still claim she got him the election).

What could be better than blowing kisses? Old-school rap. I still say Mayor Nutter should’ve gone all Mix Master Mike in the commercial. Motownphilly, anyone?
