An awsm Event at Rim Cafe: “Make It Happen!”

rene rim

This week, we joined Rene at Rim Cafe in south Philly (caddy-corner from the (in)famous Pat’s and Geno’s Philly cheesesteak stands), for the awsm Event celebrating his 20th anniversary, with everything but the amazing hot chocolate concoctions for which he’s famous.

There were musicians — with Rene on drums occasionally — fire-breathers and champagne bottles opened with sabres, a HUGE goblet of sangria, chocolate naughty-bits and flaming marshmallow toastings.  Suited guys mingled with hipsters, sexy singles with a Zach Galafinakis-lookin’ dad with his baby in a belly-pack, bougie folk like my guy and I along with city people.  Now, THIS was a party!

But I’m still jonesing for a gourmet hot-chocolate as only Rene makes’em…

Here come the photo’s!
