Video: There Was a Proposal On-Stage at the Academy of Music’s Dirty Dancing Show Last Night! 

Our peeps over at Philly mag’s Ticket told us last night that there was going to be proposal on stage at that evening’s performance of Dirty Dancing at the Kimmel Center—and there was, and it was so sweet!

The lucky lady in question was definitely shocked—but we’re guessing that was in part due to the fact that her boyfriend lives in LA! He secretly flew in for the performance, knowing there was no way his Philly-living, Dirty Dancing-loving girlfriend would miss the show. At the end, he appeared on stage. Commence tears and awws:

Had we been in that audience, we would have been squealing right along with the rest of them. Congrats to Alissa and Malik! We think you should do the Dirty Dancing dance at your wedding.

Ask the Expert: I Think the Bride Forgot My Plus One. Is It Okay to Remind Her? 



Question: I was recently invited to a wedding of an old family friend. I’d like to go, but I won’t know anyone else there, and I wasn’t invited with a date. I have a sense that that’s more because she doesn’t actually realize or remember that I have a serious significant other (we’ve known each other a long time, but don’t speak often)—not because her guest list can’t afford it.

Is there a tactful way to mention my boyfriend to her over the coming weeks, or should I just forget it? I just don’t want to decline the invite just because I won’t know a soul there.

The couple: Amy Bloomfield and Tom Curry, Northeast Philly.

The ring: My ring is a round solitaire diamond on a 14-karat white-gold band. Tom designed it through Blue Nile.
