Nobody puts Baby in the corner, especially when you’re going to propose to her!
Malik Murray knew that his girlfriend Alissa F. Chase loved the movie Dirty Dancing, and he knew she would have to see the live stage version playing here in Philly at the Academy of Music. What Chase didn’t know was that Murray flew in from Los Angeles and was waiting back stage at the Thursday evening performance. At the end of the show, Murray took to the stage and popped the big question. Chase, of course, said “yes.”
Murray and Chase first met when they were students at Penn State, but they soon drifted apart when Murray took a job in Los Angeles. They rekindled in 2012 after a brunch at Northern Liberties Green Eggs Cafe, and have maintained a long-distance relationship since then.
Below are more photos from the special moment. For information on Dirty Dancing playing through April 5, click here.

We’re willing to bet that you don’t have Philadelphia Flag Day programmed into your iCalendar, but all that might change. Tomorrow, Friday, March 27, is the high-flying holiday, and there’s a free program on the Art Museum steps where you can show your Philly pride.
2015 actually is the 120th anniversary of the Philadelphia City flag, the first city flag in the nation, and to celebrate, the Partners for Civic Pride will be offering free historic Philadelphia flags while supplies last at the event.
The Flag Day celebration starts at noon on the Philadelphia Museum of Art‘s steps, and attendees are encouraged to bring a lunch, wear yellow and blue (the colors of the flag), and play Philly music while the flag is raised above the museum. You can share your Philadelphia Flag Day posts on social media using hashtag #phillyflag.
