Xfinity Live!

I’m going to be honest, hate the exclamation point in “Xfinity Live!”  Locations shouldn’t have puncutation.  Just sharing my opinion, moving on. “Xfinity Live!”, or what I from here on out will refer to as the Xfinity Center, is the entertainment center in Philadelphia located in the South Philly Sports Complex where the Spectrum used to be.

The Faux Bachelor Party

My friends and I frequently have the “who can we marry off” conversation, not because we necessarily want our friends to start getting hitched, but because we want a wedding we could all attend.  As far as I’m concerned, weddings have little to no negative aspects, especially if you’re  attending as a guest.  There’s the

It’s about that time of the year when my friends and I start throwing out plans for summer trips.  Now, not all of these come to fruitation, but you want to get ideas out, see who’s in, consult everyone’s schedules, etc, before anything concrete happens (and before everyone’s plate fills up). Now, I realize I’ve been

My brother purchased me tickets to see a Dropkick Murphy’s St. Patrick’s Day show up in Massachusetts. I’ve been wanting to spend a St. Patrick’s Day is Boston, so I’m glad he finally made me go make good on this. It did not disappoint. The concert was actually in Lowell, Massachusetts, an easy forty three
