Front Street Cafe Grand Opening

, , , , , ,

If you’re in Philly and you haven’t heard of the Front Street Cafe in Fishtown yet… this is the event for you. The Cafe is a really great space, owned and operated by some good friends of ours. They’ve been in a soft open for a little bit, but are having a week of festivities for their Grand Opening. We’re excited to be spinning some fire for their Saturday night entertainment. It’s predicted to be pretty cold, but we’re set with layers and hand warmers, and there are windows so all the warm patrons inside can watch the performance in comfort :-) We’ll be spinning from 11pm to around 12, for a late-night happy hour. We might even be joined by some other fiery friends, so it’ll totally be worth braving the cold for!

Additional info about the event can be found on their facbeook event page here. The cafe is located at 1253 N. Front St., one block north of Girard station on the El. Some write-ups about the great space can be found here and here.  The TL;DR- great space, friendly atmosphere and fresh menu featuring farm-to-table, locally sourced and organic food with lots of options for omnivores, vegans & gluten-free folk.

 

Krampuslauf 2015

As always, life gets in the way, and I only realized yesterday that I still haven’t posted a recap of Krampuslauf. What to say? The Krampuslauf kids… wow. We’re so proud of them! Tara, Xtina and I met up with the kids the night before our fundraiser and taught them a little choreography. (Well, Xtina and Tara taught them. I’m rubbish at that part, haha.) They recorded the dance, took great notes and practiced all month. Watching them on stage was great. They had fantastic faux fire props- hoops with battery powered tea lights, LED hangers made from wire and fan operated fire pots. I hear they’re already working on how to make the props brighter and planning for next year. Can’t wait!

The weather- how could it have been any better? I’ve never been sweating in my Krampuslauf furs before! This freakishly warm East Coast might make the holidays feel a bit strange, but it’s great for a mid-December outside gathering. We did have one small incident though- our intrepid Safety and All-Around-Awesome-Guy Alex ran eyeball first into a tree branch while he was helping back stage. A cornea scratch and eye-patch later he’s on the mend. You’d think our first major injury would be related to the dangerous things that we do, not an angry tree! Glad he’s feeling better.

On to the photos. Of course, this is one of our most photographed events of the year. The costumes! The parade! Not to mention that the Krampuslauf group consists of some really great photographers. Steve Schultz and Michelle got together after the show to capture some great fire breaths. We’re so proud of our dragon! Ryan Wismer from PHL17 came by again and posted a really fantastic gallery. We’ve got a ton of photos over on facebook, here are some of my favorite.

Here’s to a New Year, looking forward to everything 2016 will bring!!

Beautiful Day in The Park

We can’t thank everyone who came out to our very first fundraising event enough. We had such beautiful weather and such wonderful people! Not to mention some amazing photos… thank you so much to both Redlite Photos and The Color Crew for sharing your images with us. Make sure to go like their facebook pages (here and here) and check out some of their other work!

Of course also huge thanks goes out to a group of our favorite fans, the whole Krampuslauf family. From helping us get the park to sending kids around on stilts to busk in the dark, we really couldn’t do it without you. We can’t wait for Krampus on the 12th!!! Oh! And if you didn’t pick up a shirt and you’ve been regretting it ever since (I know I would be!) you can get one from our ‘shop’. It isn’t a very fancy set-up, and if you’d like more than one you’ll have to message us so we can combine shopping, but check it out!

Take two on our Fall Fire and Arts Fest is just around the corner! There’s no hurricane looming, its been beautifully, if unseasonably, nice out and our list of vendors and participants just keeps getting better and better. It’s going to be a really fun event, and we can’t wait to see you there!! 2-6pm, at Liberty Lands park on Sunday, November 15th. More info is up on our facebook event here. (For some reason the facebook event is saying there are tickets available… nope, this is not a ticketed event. It is, however, a fundraiser for our troupe so we’ll be collecting donations and selling cool things, but the event is free and open to any and all who want to come.)

It’s that time again…. cool weather coming, sweaters, hot cider and turning leaves. Which means every fire dancer’s favorite holiday is around the corner! If you’re in the Philly area and looking for something to do, come on by the Twisted Tail! We’ll be spinning fire outside again this year, lighting up Headhouse Square with some fun fiery antics.
