Whatuppers Wurld,

We are proud to announce our new food hospitality and entertainment client 8th & Union Kitchen.  Our very own resident musician/promoter/ Damon R. Howard will be manning the digital turntables and directing the entertainment ambiance. Using his nationally known moniker (LA’s DJ DameDigi), he teams up with the new restaurant’s creator & longtime friend (owner/chef Brian Ashby) at 8th & Union Kitchen located in the Suburban Philadelphia area.  These two have a track record of success from similar stints in West Hollywood and Venice Beach‘s chic restaurant/bar scene circa 2011-2013.  Opening Week kicked off on April 20th, so you should come check out the scrumptious menu and stellar grooves as this is the first official weekend!

About the Restaurant:

8th & Union Kitchen is a Southeast Asian inspired restaurant located in Wilmington, Delaware’s Little Italy neighborhood. The menu showcases the deep and bright flavors of Thailand and Vietnam among many countries that influence our chef. We use contemporary techniques to prepare coconut based curries, pho, dumplings, summer rolls, salads, and small plates.  The beverage program offers traditional, house, and Tiki cocktails that play into the southeast asian theme. There are 14 beers on draft, some craft, some domestic with a moderately priced small distribution wine selection.

Whatup World,

2014 Festival Season is already fast approaching!  With the lineups announced for Coachella, New Orleans Jazz Festival,  SXSW (coming soon), etc., it seems this year will be pretty epic!  However, a 3rd year newbie to festival season continues to take it to the next level.  The Firefly Music Festival in Dover, Delaware will be held  June 19-22 with this crazy lineup.  Outkast, Foo Fighters and Jack Johnson head the bill.  The bands w/ asterisks are #SwitchFlip Certified.  Tickets go on sale Monday January 20th.  Click the images for the website.  It looks like we will be heading back East this year for certain, as our head honcho Damon Howard is originally from this area and was involved with the inaugural event!
