The Philadelphia Collection "GO TO" Events of the Week

The Philadelphia Collection has officially began and if you don't know what event to go to first, each week I'm going to put together a list of events that I declare a "GO TO". (Please note: If two or more events are happening at the same time, you must pick your own battle) Unfortunately, I won't be able to attend all the events myself as much as I would love to because somebody has to pay the bills, but I might be sending an correspondent so always remember to dress fashionable, you never know where that picture will end up. The events are free, so have fun and be fab!
