Afterparty sledding at Art Museum
We'll be taking advantage of this apparently huge snowstorm by drunk sledding at the Art Museum. Philly is so worried that I actually got called by the city last night at like 9:30 saying I should be prepared. So we'll be stocking up on the crunk juice for that second wind at 2:30

Winged Lion Pride presents "Love AGAINST Abuse"
1718 Samson Street
8pm - 12am (EARLY!)
DJ Lady Jae + DJ Roxy droppin 12 inch jewels....
NLove, Kelema and more doing LIVE ART
FREE (with a heavily suggested donation to the effort)
-Jeremy (who I've known since his age was a single digit) and the folks over at Winged Lion have been doing their thing, in both the club and the community. They are putting together a benefit for Women Against Abuse, featuring a line-up of female artists and DJ's to raise money, awareness, and involvement for the women and children of the WAA shelter. It's early too, so before you head over to Loie, make a donation to a worthy cause. Winged Lion Pride are definitely ones to watch this year.
Cosmo Baker at Walnut Room
Imagine that PaperStreet was in a contest with the devil where we both had to throw a party and whoever's party was more fun would win. The devil would roll out a solid gold dance floor and have Rick James performing with a special set from Tupac and the original DJ from Studio 54 would be on the decks. But we'd just lay back in the cut watch. Then when his little party was over we'd get on the cell and wait for Cosmo Baker to pull up in his Jetta. Match point.
It's gonna kind of be like that this Sunday, only better because it's at the Walnut Room. Oh yeah and like I said it's FREEEEEEE.
