At the ninth annual ChefAid to benefit MANNA (Metropolitan AIDS Neighborhood Nutrition Alliance) on Sunday, March 10th, this year held at the Hyatt Regency at Penn's Landing, over 300 people came to support and recognize the group. MANNA delivers three meals a day to area victims of AIDS, and/or their dependents. It was a colorful and lively gathering in many ways. The shimmering rainbow tablecloths and abundant rose arrangements reflected the bouyant and celebratory nature of the night and it's straight (but not narrow) and gay guests. A bittersweet note was sounded between sets by the always amazing Eddie Bruce band though as the evening's host, KYW's Pat Ciarrocchi rememebered her late friend and former co-worker, Siani Lee, previous years' host.
 
The American Heart Association held one of Phildelphia's largest charity balls at the Convention Center Marriott on Saturday, March 9th. More than one thousand people attended, and along with generous corporate sponsors, managed to raise more than $500,000 for the AHA. Enchantment Under the Sea was the theme, as evidenced by the sighting of mermaids weaving in and out of the crowd. The live auction featured hot-and-heavy bidding and the auctioneer's spotters had a hard time keeping their eyes on all bidders. One item, a luxury cruise aboard a Silverseas ship contributed a sizable amount to the AHA's fund.
 
We caught the grand opening of Trust, a 6,000 square foot, retro-hip restaurant in the seemingly unlikely neighborhood of 13th and Sansom. If you're into the restaurant scene then you've heard of Goldman Properties, the company that injected Miami with a pure shot of adrenaline and cool. Guillermo Pernot, Esquire Magazine's "1999 Chef of the Year," is at the helm as Executive Chef. Principal designer and General Manager is Gary Farmer, creator and owner of Miami's famed restaurant institution, The Strand. Watch this area in Philadelphia – it's going to explode in a similar fashion.
 
The barefoot guy running up the stairs of the Chamounix Mansion to his bunk didn't seem to notice or care that there was a party going on to celebrate the building's 200th anniversary. The birthday took place on February 23rd. He was a guest at the Mansion – a historic hostel. It wasn't always a place for backpackers and adventurous travelers though. The Plumstead family used it as a seasonal retreat at the turn of the century (1802, that is) and from there it was used variously as another family's home, a restaurant, boarding house, clubhouse and picnic site until 1964 when a group searching for a youth hostel rescued and refurbished it.
 
The Delaware Riverkeeper Network's first Annual Dinner was held at the Warwick Hotel on February 21st. The small but select crowd was peppered with local and semi-local politicos, like Ed Rendell, former Congressman and area director for the Environmental Protection Agency, Pete Kostmeyer, and current New Jersey Congressman Rob Andrews. The Delaware Riverkeeper Network works closely with the American Littoral Society, a coastal conservation organization, to empower people to take active roles in protecting our waterways.
