As part of the Rookie Mag Road Trip, which just started yesterday in Brooklyn, some awesome ladies will be stopping in Philly today to hang out with their readers. The plan is to meet at Long in the Tooth (20th and Sansom) at 1 p.m. to shop for records and then over to Rittenhouse Square Park at 2 p.m. to make some crafts, all while I imagine some serious bonding will be going on.
Because it’s so wonderful, sometimes I feel it is a duty of mine to spread the gospel of Rookie Mag to those blind to it. Even if you’re no longer a teenage girl, it’s still the greatest thing ever. I often wonder what my high school self would’ve been like if I had it as my survival/sanity guide, which is probably a more confident, bad-ass and just generally cooler version of myself. Luckily for those of us post-teenage, it’s still completely enjoyable and helpful with articles about make-up, looking like David Bowie, honest advice about life and love and, really, just anything that may have ever crossed your mind about the quarrels of being a girl in this world.
I’ll be stuck in class and can’t make it, so to all of you who plan on going, say hi to Tavi for me!
