Parties
Listing 1246-1250 of 1369

There aren't many days with as perfect weather as Thursday, September 12th, when the Young Friends of the Philadelphia Museum Art held their annual Rodin Party in the courtyard of the Rodin Museum on the Parkway. One of the better Young Friends events of the year, it drew a considerable crowd which packed the walkways outside the museum chatting and mingling with specialty martinis in hand.
 
The Mann Center celebrates the legendary American composer, Richard Rodgers, in a tribute performance by America's renowned Boston Pops Orchestra. The Pops is famous for its illustrious conductors, including Arthur Fiedler and award-winning film composer John Williams. In 1995, Keith Lockhart succeeded Williams as the third and youngest conductor to lead the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Richard Rodgers, one of the most influential musical artists of the 20th century. During a career that spanned over six decades, Rodgers wrote more than 900 published songs and 40 Broadway musicals and received unparalleled recognition, including Tony, Oscar, Grammy, and Emmy Awards and the Pulitzer Prize.
 
Local actor/director Melanie Mayron, formerly of the show "Thirtysomething", was on hand to help promote her new film " Slap Her, She's French" at the United Artists King of Prussia theatre. After milling about in the VIP lobby at the cinema, making silly French jokes, and munching on the crudites, guests were shepherded into their seats. This movie is hilarious, mostly a send-up of Texan mores and not the Francais-bashing one might expect judging from the title. We won't give away the surprise twist at the end, so make sure to see this when it comes out in September.
 
The annual Best of Philly bash was held July 29th this year at Waterworks, overlooking the river and Boathouse Row. We honored our BOP winners in all five categories: food, nightlife, arts and entertainment, services, and shopping. All the happy businesses and their well-wishers showed up to crowd the patios with over 300 people. Though it was a record-breaking hot day, by the time the band, Silvertide, played it was comfortable enough to dance and scream for the hot, young rockers. The crowd cleared out after their last song around 10:30 – not bad for a Monday night.
 
Finally, a place for La Colombe denizens to retire to after the coffeehouse closes. L'Hexagone, a new addition to the "French Quarter" in Center City, threw an opening bash on Thursday, June 6th. Owners Jean Wilfrid Thibault and Raphael Perrier had case upon case of champagne to lubricate the shoulder-to-shoulder crowd. As with any French hangout, the bar was thick with smoke and suggestive looks. 1718 Sansom Street has become one of the main places to go before heading to your favorite after-hours space.
