The 2004 Taste of the Book and the Cook was held at Loew's hotel on Wednesday, February 18th. The popular festival, which showcases guest chefs at some of our favorite restaurants, holds this tasting each year to kick off the series.
 
Once again, the Philadelphia Museum of Art's young friends' took over the Great Hall for their annual gala. **Starlight** was the theme. Propped against various walls, posterboard cutouts of 50's icons such as James Dean and of course, Marilyn Monroe added to the retro feel. Some girls wore vintage gowns (even if their dates didn't seem as enthusiastic about dressing up in 50's attire). Though attendance was off a little this year, by ten p.m. the dance floor managed to be the main attraction and as usual, the PMA staff was hard-pressed to herd everyone out by the Cinderella curfew.
 
Loew's Hotel welcomed a sold-out crowd to the annual Human Rights Campaign gala on Saturday, February 28th. The ticket and auction proceeds went to the Human Rights Campaign organization, who promote equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgendered people nationwide. www.hrc.org
 
This year the Morris Animal Refuge, a no-kill shelter and adoption center, held their annual Furball at the Society Hill Sheraton on Saturday, January 10th. Tenderhearted animal lovers, many in costume (but none in fur), grazed the buffet tables, perused the silent auction items and danced to the Dave Gustafson Orchestra.

The 2004 Hair of the Dog party was held at the Bellevue on Saturday, January 10th. Most agreed that the elegant Bellevue was an even better place to hold this annual bash. The bar stations, while numerous, were a popular destination all night, which led clever revelers to order three or four drinks at a time. The crowd was generally in black-tie and gowns, (with a heavier emphasis on cleavage than many other galas). The band, Don't Call Me Francis, put on a great show, too, packing people on the dance floor. In places, smoking was allowed - the cigarette haze became bothersome as early as eleven p.m. About that time, a guy jumped up on stage and proposed to his girlfriend. Did she say yes? Check the photos... The charity beneficiary, the Sunshine Foundation, an organization that grants wishes to ill children, should expect a weighty check this year, as the party was officially sold out. This party remains one of the top ten parties for young singles in Philadelphia.
