Presenters are always trying to say it in a way that gets our attention and actually makes us do it -- but it's not working. Have you noticed more disruptions like the one at the Philadelphia Orchestra last week, which got headlines in the Inquirer? Can we prevent them, or do we just have to live with this?
On the topic of change versus what we're willing to live with, Philly has a hugely consequential primary election coming up next week (Tuesday, May 16). We'll be voting for a raft of new City Councilmembers, judges across the city and state, and Philly's 100th mayor. Because of Philly's overwhelmingly Democratic makeup, whoever wins next week's primary is going to be our next mayor. But because few people vote in primaries, as local journalists have pointed out, our next mayor could be selected by just 2,000 votes. So make a plan for Tuesday. Our friends over at the Greater Philadelphia Cultural Alliance have compiled a voter guide for arts sector supporters.
In other news, we're excited to see the guest list growing for our Power of Food Media event in about two weeks! Soul & Busan just announced some of the menu. If you've been eyeing this event, grab your tix.
