Crossing the Finish Line, a non-profit organization that sends young adult cancer patients and their caregivers on a week long vacation as a respite from the stress of their disease and treatment, held their annual Beach Ball on Saturday, January 17th at the Liberty Place shopping center's rotunda.
 
This year's Philly Cooks! tasting event was moved to the Marriott at the Convention Center to accommodate the multitudes of hungry Philadelphians eager to help raise money for MANNA.
 
Patrice Rames, formerly the chef at Bistro Saint Tropez, opened his own restaurant/lounge aptly named Patou, which was his childhood nickname, at 312 Market Street on Tuesday, January 13th. He aims to call to mind the ambiance of the French Riviera and does so with boating motifs, beachy white walls, and of course, the attractive french staffers. The nibbles were outstanding – tiny burgers topped with foie gras and mushrooms and onions sauteed in truffled oil remain in our memory. We shall return.
 
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.
