It’s no secret that when I find a show I like, I get addicted. Ever since I first saw HBO’s GIRLS, I have been kind of obsessed. I love each of the female leads and laugh along with the unbelievably realistic jokes. I have been counting down the months until Season 3, so I was ecstatic when HBO invited me to the Philadelphia #GIRLSnight Premiere earlier this week.
The event was held at Prince Music Theatre (1412 Chestnut Street) – an absolutely gorgeous space. Before the screening, guests were treated to a reception, featuring music from GIRLS soundtrack favorites (well mine at least) like Robyn & Fun. The food at the event was delicious and the drinks were obviously bomb.com. My favorite part of the reception was the photobooth. It took some maneuvering, but after we got the hang of the placement, we were just part of the crew.My younger sister Lindsay accompanied me to the event. I credit her with getting me started on most TV shows I become obsessed with, so after she had to miss the Game of Thrones premiere last year because she was not 21 yet, she was obviously the best date I could have asked for for the night.After watching a live stream of the NYC premiere’s red carpet (the ‘girls’ all looked fab!), we settled down in the theatre (with beers!) for a back-to-back episode screening. Let me tell you – the first two episodes are a riot. My favorite line so far happens in the first five minutes, so just be on the lookout for that. I was so happy to see Hannah, Marnie, Shosh & Jessa together again and can’t wait for the rest of the season.
A big thank you to HBO for inviting me to this amazing night! If you’d like to get in on future GIRLS events, make sure you’re following them on their new Tumblr page – they have a fantastic social media presence & usually use their platforms to announce events like these.
Season 3 of GIRLS starts this Sunday at 10pm on HBO. Will you be watching?
