Tonight is First Friday on Frankford Avenue.
Dozens of businesses have sales and special activities as described at Frankford Avenue Arts:
For instance, at the Rocket Cat Cafe (2001 Frankford Avenue), there is a exhibit entitled: Psychedelighted by Yurii Delaney
Yurii Delaney is 44 years old and grew up in Bucks County. Through many years of intense psychedelic drug use and too much time on her hands and tons of art supplies, she randomly began painting on records and they seemed to turn out pretty cool so she kept doing it and people seem to like them. They are all done with acrylic and the smallest brushes possible, freehand. None are planned out, design wise. It’s a work-as-she goes process. Each painting is also viewable in blacklight. She really likes glitter and kitten.
If that exhibit doesn’t sound appealing to you, other offers include free soap, discounts on jewelry and drinks.
Greensgrow is having a Customer Appreciation Night – Tonight from 6pm-8pm.

Check if your home qualifies for LOOP and how much you can save. You should do this now because this is a one time event with a deadline very soon.
We have seen many positive changes to our neighborhood. And with those changes some home values have risen, causing some longtime homeowners to face potentially steep increases in their tax bills. Homeowners with substantial changes in their property assessment in Philadelphia may qualify for a discount on Real Estate Taxes with the Longtime Owner Occupants Program (LOOP).
If you are approved, your tax bill will be reduced for 10 years with a one-time application. To get these savings, your application must be received by January 15, 2014, and you have to meet the other requirements below.
LOOP Eligibility Requirements:
You must own and have lived in this property as your primary residence since at least July 1, 2003. Your home is either a single family or a multi-unit property with no more than three residential units and one commercial unit. Your property has not received a tax abatement.The Real Estate Taxes on your property must be paid in full or you must be up-to-date on a payment plan (or have an application for a payment agreement pending).There is an income limit based on Household size.
What do I do next?
Fill out and submit the application (must be received by January 15, 2014). Pay the amount due after the LOOP discount as your 2014 Real Estate Tax by March 31, 2014 (or by February 28, 2014 to get a 1% discount). The discounted amount can be found on the brochure mailed to you or look it up here.
If your LOOP application is not approved, you will need to pay the balance of your tax billby April 30, 2014.
