UPDATE: Blue Cross RiverRink Preview Party Tonight POSTPONED

Blue Cross RiverRink Winterfest

Well, this is what happens when the Philadelphia region is expected to have temperatures in the 70’s: you can’t really ice skate!

Tonight’s Blue Cross RiverRink preview party has been postponed due to the warm weather making the rink unsuitable for skating. The festivities have been rescheduled for tomorrow evening, November 25, starting at 8PM.

DreamWorks Brings Shrek-Themed Santa Experience to Cherry Hill Mall

Shrek

Finallyyour kids might stop singing “Do You Want To Build a Snowman” and replace it with “Do You Want To Visit Shrek.”

That’s what the folks at Cherry Hill Mall hope will happen as they get ready to reveal a one-of-a-kind holiday experience titled Adventure To Santa. DreamWorks, the animation team behind Shrek, is launching the interactive multimedia attraction that will open this Black Friday at the South Jersey mall, making it one of only eight shopping centers in the entire country that offer the experience. Unlike the traditional Santa visit, this one incorporates music, video, and everyone’s favorite characters from the Shrek enterprise, including Fiona, Donkey, and the title character himself.

Beyonce’s Newest Music Video Is Essentially 3.5 Minutes Of Her Dancing In Her Underwear

Beyonce Header

Queen Bee’s newest music video for her single 7/11 hit YouTube over the weekend, and, for lack of better words, it’s pretty much three minutes and 36 seconds of the pop star getting down while in her panties.

The track, which comes off the Beyonce Platinum Edition album, is what we’d come to expect from the singer…but the video is a whole other story. The title of the song references the popular drinking game 7/11 doubles (if you’ve never heard of it, here’s a tutorial on how to play). Fans on Beyonce’s YouTube page have mixed feelings on the video: some have called it the “Best music video I’ve seen in a really looong time,” while others think the video shows how Beyonce  is “down the drain, flushable with everyone else.”

We’ll let you be the judge!

Al Pacino Performing With Philadelphia Orchestra in January

shutterstock_111522257Film icon Al Pacino will join the Philadelphia Orchestra in January for its 158th Academy of Music Anniversary Concert and Ball. He’ll be joined by Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin and special guest, 18-year-old emerging violinist Simone Porter, for this evening that doubles as a celebration of the Academy of Music itself.

But here’s the real question: We all know Pacino’s talented … but what can he offer the Orchestra?

“In the tradition of blending great acting with great orchestral music, Pacino will join Nézet-Séguin and The Philadelphia Orchestra, sharing a favorite monologue and more,” reads a press release sent out today.

Makes more sense. Pacino definitely seems excited about it. He shares this sentiment:

“It’s a singular honor for me to perform on the stage of the Academy of Music, in the very place where Rachmaninoff conducted The Philadelphia Orchestra and where this legendary ensemble gave the United States premiere of The Rite of Spring,” Pacino says. “I could not be more thrilled to become part of the legacy of the historic Academy of Music and The Philadelphia Orchestra.”

The event takes place on Saturday, January 24, 2015. Tickets and more information can be found here.

WATCH: 3 Grandmas Smoke Pot For the First Time

Cut Video found three grandmothers in Washington (where marijuana is legal) who had never smoked pot before and persuaded them to do it on camera. What results, naturally, is hilarious. And they get blasted—smoking from a bong, a vaporizer, and sipping on marijuana-infused tea.

Check out the video above for unforgettable quotes like, “I could go iron for days now,” and “I’d do it again … if I could get this bag of chips open.”
