Katie and I will be on the lookout for a variety of things.

  • We will find people who found love in unlikely places. We’ll go directly to the locations in Philly and speak one-on-one with couples and how they met.
  • We will look at how hidden nightlife finds hidden talent in musicians who started small.  Broad Street Music Group is a Philly-based group that seeks and puts on performances of undiscovered artists in the area. They have featured a total of 1200 musicians.
  • We will seek hidden places through their histories, such as dive bars and old restaurants with interesting pasts, and how they have changed over time, if at all.
