Friday, March 9, 2018, 6:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m.
The Roberts Group welcomes you to an exquisite networking experience eleven stories above Independence Hall. Due to inclement weather, this event had to be rescheduled. Come enjoy a heated rooftop experience at Stratus Lounge with a soaring fireplace, drinks that are as fresh as the air, in an inspiring yet comfortable diverse atmosphere with lush textures and swaying greenery.

3. DAVE EAST
Friday, March 9, 2018, 8:30 p.m.
Nas’s only official artist. The only guy on Mass Appeal releasing work. The only real person Nas will co-sign (shall I repeat). That alone means the guy is halfway decent at the least. If you haven’t caught the Dave East wave yet, you’re missing out. See him bring Harlem to Philly this week and you be the judge. Learn more HERE.
4. SO FAR GONE – DRAKE NIGHT
Friday, March 9, 2018, 9:00 p.m.- 2:00 a.m.
So Far Gone aka #DrakeNightSFG is a musical celebration dedicated to the one and only 6 God, Aubrey “Drake” Graham. The party started from the bottom as a monthly soiree in Philly in 2015, and immediately became the hottest event in town. From there it moved from city to city, bringing the sound and fury of Drake’s incomparable hit catalog to ecstatic audiences everywhere. Learn more HERE.
