So Far, So Fun
Last night was a dewy blast
and Naughty Nautical Nite continues tonight
RAIN OR SHINE

I was worried we'd get rained out as it started getting all drizzly on the ride to Philly with my buddy Ben Lerman behind the wheel. But the clouds partially parted to allow a crack of sun to shine through. Once on the boat though, actually, during my set, it downright rained for a good 5 minutes. Maybe god was crying with laughter? That's what I told myself, anyway.
At least it was rain and not that huge bar over my head that was coming down
We moved down into the hold of the ship which is huge, and hosted a really neat art show, in addition to being a great space for a nautical themed show. All the acts were great, there were a lot of people dressed as sailors and captains and pirates and stuff, and I think everyone had a really great time. But I guess I shouldn't try to speak for everyone. Maybe there were one or two sad Sallies or Steves, but ya can't please 'em all.
Dame Darcy in all her mermalicious glory
For more info about the show, check out www.gazela.org/artsfest. The Gazela is at the end of Market Street at Penn's Landing. You can park above on the ramps for $5 in quarters instead of paying $17 to park in the lot. Tickets are $20 and can be purchased in advance or at the door. Doors are at 7 PM, show is at 8 PM til 10 PM.
You can discreetly BYOB and snacks, and there is beer for sale by donation and iced tea for sale for $3 / cup on the boat. There is also home made ice cream for sale. It's a really gorgeous environment for a show and you can say "Arrggghh!!!" a lot and no one will care. Dame Darcy will be wearing next to nothing which is rather sexy and everyone is dressed to the oceanic 9s.
It's a good time, ye hear?
