About Us

"A crowd of rapt listeners — old enough to drink, young enough to look good in low-slung pants, the descriptive word flung around was "scenesters" — gathered at the Cafe du Nord Monday night for "The Starf— Show," the latest in Porch Light's monthly series of conversations."

Leah Garchik, The In Crowd,
