the year was 1998. . .(to the best of my recollection)
the place. . .Philly/Camden waterfront for Lilith Fair
back in the day before I was a mom. . .before digital cameras were the norm - before cell phones fit in your FRONT jeans' pocket . . . when the venue was the Tweeter Center . . .
four hip girls with tickets to the hottest girl-power show ever. . .
the details are hazy - as this was before I took photos of everything and before I had a blog (or even knew what that was!). . .but 4 of us, me, Carla, Tanya and Anita headed into the city for a bite and drinks and then off to the fair.
i forget what restaurant we went to - it was brand new - hadn't gotten it's liquor license yet - so the nice gentlemen offered us jug wine for free . . .after all they weren't permitted to charge us . . .and off to the Fair we went - we drank, listened to music, hung out and had a wonderful and memorable time.
flash forward 12 years. . .lilith is coming again - I want to go. . .I send an email to some girlfriends - everyone is too busy. . .sigh. . .
my friend Missy, decides she's game - so let's go. Missy is a take-charge kinda girl and she got tickets and figured out a game plan.
things are so different - I needed to take care of some mom-duty stuff before I could head out - so we missed the early shows. . .we took the Ferry over and got to the venue - it looked surprisingly as i remembered it. . .despite the low turnout - the show was rockin and the performers were wonderful! it was a toally fun night out with old and new friends, warm night air, and great music.
catch you soon -
