10+ things to expect at the 2015 Blue Carpet Bash

This is the MOST exciting post we write all year! Once again, our in-boxes are exploding, the smart phones have gone dumb, and the ipads are requesting a help app or good ol’ fashion pen and paper. And quite frankly, it’s all worth it. We couldn’t be more thrilled to share some of the most happening events ahead for those of you venturing out to celebrate this grandiose BLUE evening with us at The 2nd Annual North Delaware Happening List Blue Carpet Bash on Thursday, June 18th at the Newark Country Club. We are in awe of YOU! Are YOU ready for this?
