I have no idea if this is something that I would even want to go to...but I love the idea of an all night music and food extravaganza. This caught my attention while looking through the Philadelphia Weekly newspaper last night.
Actually, deciding to go to something like this involves so many other people. I think if it didn't I would just go to see what it was all about ;-), and I might still do that!
George's birthday is Monday...he'll be 19! and he's quite a homebody with his Cancer Sun. I've been trying to get him to think of somewhere that he'd like to go, maybe back to his birthplace in Brooklyn...it's been years since we've been there! and I think 19 is a good age for revisiting your birthplace as the moon's nodes return to where they were at your birth around that time. Michael didn't like the idea of the concert...he's still irritated that we went to a Yanni concert a few years ago while there was a monster truck exposition at the stadium next door ;-), though I do think he enjoyed the concert.
I think my Cancer moon pulls me to check in with everyone else, and then my Sagittarius Sun tells me to just take off by myself ;-). Oh, and then my Piscean intuitiveness says, wait and see what the Universe leads you to...(it's a veritable soap opera in there)...and then Libra rising says, hmmm, what are all the other options...
Anyway, check this out, it looks pretty cool.
