Philadelphia Magazine hosted a party on November 12th for our Smartest Philadelphians at the Franklin Museum. Sponsored by Infiniti and Johnnie Walker Black, the guests milled about at the feet of the enormous Benjamin Franklin statue sipping wine and partaking of the delicate and plentiful appetizers. Conversational topics ran the gamut from Cognitive Psychology to Public Policy Law to Sculpture.
 
Calderwood Gallery relocated to a beautiful 19th Century townhouse and threw a party to celebrate their new fin de siecle digs. Janet and Gary Calderwood specialize in fine French Art Deco, Modernist and 1940's furniture and objects. The champagne flowed for a few hours (not, of course, on the chic, yet simple Ruhlmann chairs, mind you), and Neil Stein himself popped in to check on Avenue B's delicious appetizers.
 
The Clay Studio, a Philadelphia Ceramic Arts haven, recently held a three-day weekend, November 9th to the 11th, to celebrate the ceramic artists and collectors with a series of lectures, house tours, gallery receptions, an auction, and the piece de resistance, a Grand Buffet dinner held at Norman and Suzanne Cohn's house. The Cohns are generous patrons of the arts as well as avid collectors of ceramic, glass, precious metals and craft art. The dinner was produced by their private chef, Tony Clark, and eaten with relish (not the green kind) by more than 85 guests throughout the Cohn's wonderfully original home.
 
We at Philadelphia Magazine don't need much of an excuse to throw a party. On November 28th we threw one at the Four Seasons Philadelphia for two reasons – to honor our choice of Volunteer of the Year, Ann Hamilton, and to launch our guide, Philadelphia Magazine's Social Datebook 2002, to the best charity events happening in and around Philadelphia. As our publisher, David Lipson says, "from cover to cover, our ‘little black book' is an invaluable tool." Those in the know can also reference it here, online at our website.
 
Bar Noir, late night. Much smoke, little light. Bobby Startup, owner David. Always cordial, misbehavin'. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------- There's almost always a line, but if you're very fabulous (and a little patient), you'll get in sooner or later. Everyone is dancing, everywhere – on benches and tables. You're certain to find the best mix in Philadelphia. No Attytudes here, just peaceful people dancing the night away.
