The Young Friends of the Philadelphia Museum of Art held their Annual Black-tie Gala on Saturday, February 2nd, in the grand hall at the Museum – always one of the most beautiful venues in the city. One of our favorites, The Elastic Wasteband, rocked the twenty and thirty-something crowd from start to finish. Mother Grey Goose provided miniature martinis and itsy-bitsy, pink, Cosmopolitans - both a big hit with the throngs. Museum officials swooped down on the party around eleven o'clock, cutting off the liquid supply (them's the rules) so those in the know and all who weren't quite done that early headed for the Rotunda at The Ritz on Broad Street. Cigar smoke swirled blue above our heads and champagne and cognac were passed around as the night aged gracefully.
