Let’s Show D.C. Some Philly Hospitality

There’s been a lot of DC v. Philly animosity lately, what with our darling Phillies wrecking the Nationals on a regular basis this past week. Oh, and the fact that Phils phans went down en masse to last week’s season opener didn’t make Nationals fans too happy either. And when they weren’t crying into their hot dog buns, they were fainting in shock at our raucous behavior. I’m sorry DC, but did you expect us to shower youse guys with rose petals and feed youse grapes? We aren’t even that nice to other Philadelphians!


But the feuding isn’t over after today’s final game. Cause Saturday is the 2nd Annual Inter-City StorySlam at the Free Library Festival: Philly vs. DC. Our First Person Arts line-up of former DC-er Brady Russell, Ryan T. Barlow, Michael McCarry, and Douglas Changstein Didyoung will be taking on some chumps from Speakeasy DC. I really hope these guys aren’t as delicate as all the whiny Nationals fans. They better a) bring it and b) not get all mopey when they lose.

So now we need all of you to bring that Phillies spirit (with fewer obscenities please) this Saturday to the Central Branch of the Free Library, 5pm, FREE.
