February events

So although we don't have any official events in February, we'd like to let you know about 2 possibilities to meet with other Phi Mus and enjoy some fun on the town.

The first event is on February 20th, from 4 to 7pm at the Hollywood Renaissance Hotel at Hollywood and Highland.  It is the annual "Cupcake Challenge" and for an entrance fee of $40 you will be able to sample some of our cities best cupcakes.  Post a comment on this blog if you're thinking of coming so other Phi Mus can meet up with you.  For more information see:

The second event is on February 23rd, when you can get a free short stack at IHOP locations around the US and benefit the Children's Miracle Network.  A group of LA Alums will be gathering at the IHOP on Sepulveda and National in West LA at 7pm.  IHOP is giving away pancakes all day and all they're asking in return is that you consider making a donation to CMN.  For more information see:  Hope to see you there!
