Emily Guendelsberger Emily is senior staff writer at Philadelphia City Paper. She enjoys writing about feminism, opera, television, arts ecosystems, music theory, people with weird jobs and pretty much everything involving money. You can also find her writing at the A.V. Club, the Guardian and other fine publications.
Emily gets so many invites to interesting stuff on Facebook and via email that it seems like a waste not to share the wealth. If you've already combed our new and improved events listings and still can't find anything that strikes your fancy, check here every afternoon for a few bonus things going on that night. Want to invite Emily to your event? Cool! She's at facebook.com/emilygee. You'll probably be better served by entering your thing into our events system, though.
