One of the best things about Balcony Bar @ The Kimmel is that the party doesn't shut down for a little rain --️ . If you're looking for a fun way to @ccdsips, stop by at 5pm! If we get a slight shower, we just take the party inside --. We've got food, drinks, fun and tickets for @amandaseales to give away --️-- . . . . . .
