Girl Power: Weekend Guide 10/17 – 10/19

pa conference for womenHappy Friday!

Don’t get us wrong: we love men ’round here, but are still totally amped from yesterday’s Pennsylvania’s Conference For Women. From Robin Roberts reminding us we’ve all got something, to Candy Chang’s transformation of neighborhoods simply with chalk & side of a building, to Diane Keaton’s questioning of Billy Pitt, that poet on top of City Hall (and holllerrr – our logo figure) – it was an inspiring day to be in Philadelphia and a woman.

How to continue to celebrate this energy? Let’s move on to the weekend. As usual, Philly don’t disappoint.
