Every Wednesday morning from 9:00am to 9:02am, the Aroundphilly.com staff is permitted to take a small break to apply fresh bandages and dressings to our crippled hands and gashed extremities. If during this time we do not black out from malnourishment or exhaustion, we will happily answer any of your questions or consider any of your suggestions.
Suggestions can include:
- - Ideas for articles or general suggestions for the site
- - Events, festivals, art shows, concerts or restaurant openings that need our attention (or presence–hint, hint)
- - Video footage from around town of interesting/hilarious happenings
- - Suggestions on how to escape tightly-secured office buildings
Preferred majors: English, Communications, Marketing, Public Relations
