Listing 1296-1300 of 1369

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.
 
A limousine scavenger hunt to benefit the Greater Philadelphia Film Office was held Saturday, November, 17th in The Mayor''s Reception Room. The first scene was a lively cocktail party as guests gathered to receive clues to films shot in Philadelphia. The action continued as the guests raced to waiting limousines to scour the City unraveling riddles, all the while nibbling food and sipping (or gulping) champagne. Meanwhile, back at The Hall, the hunters returned to the victory party, scores were tabulated and prizes awarded as all enjoyed dessert and dancing.
 
The Rittenhouse Hotel was the place to be on Thursday, October 25th, if you love French food. The March of Dimes held a delicious fundraiser called An Evening in Lyon, complete with four of the world's master French chefs. The gracious and lovely Honorable Daniele Thomas-Easton was the emcee and charmed everyone with her melodic French accent. A reverential hush came over the room when the food was served as people tried to maintain decorum while devouring the sinful fare.
 
On Monday, October 22nd The Marian Anderson Award was presented to musical genius Quincy Jones. Marian Anderson was one of the most celebrated African-American contraltos of the twentieth century. She was born in Philadelphia in 1897, and became a beloved symbol of the triumph of talent over prejudice and bigotry. Eleanor Roosevelt herself was a high-profile supporter of Marian Anderson and engaged her to sing at the Lincoln Memorial in 1939. The award presented to Quincy Jones was preceded by tributes at the Academy of Music by the Philadelphia Orchestra, opera singer Grace Bumbry, legendary trumpeter John Faddis and a blow-out, sing-along with Stevie Wonder.
 
The Print Center of Philadelphia held an open house auction called Beatnik Bash, with staff and guests dressed in black berets and turtlenecks. The crowd was enthusiastic (not a Beatnik trait, but hey, this is Nouveau Beat) and pre-bid on such items as an original Robert Asman Print.
