Le Bec Fin underwent major redecorating in its main dining area – from hot pink to rich, gold, woven fabrics and floral chintz on the walls, to ultra luxe crystal stemware and silver. Owner Georges Perrier invited his most favored and loyal clients to view the handiwork of DAS Architecture, Interiors, and Furnishings. The designers were on hand to overhear the various accolades and murmurings directed equally toward the design as well as to the outrageously rich fare. After an hour or so of mingling, Monsieur Perrier mounted the staircase with a methuselah (that's equivalent to eight bottles!) of Laurent-Perrier Champagne and bellowed good-naturedly, "silence! Silence! I will have silence!" before ardently thanking his patrons.
 
The Mann Center celebrates the legendary American composer, Richard Rodgers, in a tribute performance by America's renowned Boston Pops Orchestra. The Pops is famous for its illustrious conductors, including Arthur Fiedler and award-winning film composer John Williams. In 1995, Keith Lockhart succeeded Williams as the third and youngest conductor to lead the Boston Pops Esplanade Orchestra. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the birth of Richard Rodgers, one of the most influential musical artists of the 20th century. During a career that spanned over six decades, Rodgers wrote more than 900 published songs and 40 Broadway musicals and received unparalleled recognition, including Tony, Oscar, Grammy, and Emmy Awards and the Pulitzer Prize.
 
Local actor/director Melanie Mayron, formerly of the show "Thirtysomething", was on hand to help promote her new film " Slap Her, She's French" at the United Artists King of Prussia theatre. After milling about in the VIP lobby at the cinema, making silly French jokes, and munching on the crudites, guests were shepherded into their seats. This movie is hilarious, mostly a send-up of Texan mores and not the Francais-bashing one might expect judging from the title. We won't give away the surprise twist at the end, so make sure to see this when it comes out in September.
 
The annual Best of Philly bash was held July 29th this year at Waterworks, overlooking the river and Boathouse Row. We honored our BOP winners in all five categories: food, nightlife, arts and entertainment, services, and shopping. All the happy businesses and their well-wishers showed up to crowd the patios with over 300 people. Though it was a record-breaking hot day, by the time the band, Silvertide, played it was comfortable enough to dance and scream for the hot, young rockers. The crowd cleared out after their last song around 10:30 – not bad for a Monday night.
 
Rain did not triumph at this year's Ball on the Square in Rittenhouse Park. People watched from benches and grassy seats with their dogs, while the $600 per couple guests made their way into the large white tent, clad in black tie for summer. While the dinner was underway, the Young Friends of Rittenhouse held a separate cocktail party nearby at Marathon on the Square, under a ceiling of burgundy and gold balloons. When the grownups had finished eating, the children were permitted to join them for dancing before bedtime. The funniest part is that the Young Friends (actually, ages 21 – 35) were outdanced by the older guests, and it happens that way every year.
