Make Cookbook Club a monthly tradition. Let me introduce you to a brilliant concept called Cookbook Club—AKA how to have a dinner party without having to cook a bunch of food.

Dance it out! It’s not every day you get to play pretend and, well, not appear fully insane—but this Friday, Philly’s very own dancing queen, Alexis Rose, is giving you the chance by hosting a Beyoncé-themed dance class.
