What’s Buzzing In Philly This Weekend with Molly Eichel

Buzz sends Molly on the road…she’s calls us from a press event for the upcoming movie The Hobbit from New York City. But even though she’s there, she still let’s us know what’s happening in our cityof Brotherly Love. Here are some great events to help you plan some additional Holiday shopping and festive and fun events over the weekend and beyond!
Nothing good coming out this week. Instead, catch up on Oscar favorites before the onslaught of really good movies happens … unless you really want to go see Playing for Keeps, which, I promise you, you do not.
