An Evening of Celebration | Hungry Pigeon | Basia Bulat at the Philadelphia Museum of Art | 28 December 2018

On Friday evening, I decided to celebrate myself. Since being diagnosed with gluten sensitivity and early celiac, going gluten-free has helped not only my liver, but my body as a whole. I wanted to celebrate my health and happiness, I had dinner at the Hungry Pigeon. I’ve come to the conclusion that I’m a foodie and different restaurants bring me joy as well. The Hungry Pigeon is one of those places – I love the locally sourced food and the staff. The waiter agreed to a selfie! The chicken and rice were also delicious.

I’m also a member of the Philadelphia Museum of Art (I have to renew my membership too) and after dinner, I enjoyed a performance by Basia Bulat, a folk singer from Canada. She was awesome and I stayed for the entire performance. After, I bought her CD and we chatted for a good ten minutes about Canada and music. Down to Earth and sweet, we shared a hug before I left. She also said I could take the set list for my Happiness Box/scrapbook. I also bought an Indian bear.


What an amazing evening and a great way to celebrate the last Friday of 2018! Every day is a celebration. 🙂

  1. Hi, Jessica Marie!

    You wrapped up the year 2018 with another flurry of activity, dear friend. It is a wonderful idea to celebrate your health and happiness. We all need to take stock and do the same instead of moaning and complaining about the year’s lowlights. The Hungry Pigeon looks like a great place to dine. I think you would make an excellent food critic!

    I’m glad you were inspired to head over to the Philadelphia Museum of Art to enjoy the performance of Canadian folk singer Basia Bulat. Isn’t it a joy when a music artist turns out to be friendly, down to earth and willing to chat after the show?

    No one packs more educational, cultural and gastronomical activities into a year than you, Jessica. I dare say you’ve got the art of living down to a science. 🙂 I wish you health, happiness and success in the coming year, dear friend JM!
