One year ago, Philadelphia Magazine launched a brand new annual tradition for the region's calendar of must-attend events, with the first Philly Cooks! This year, to raise money for MANNA (a volunteer-driven food program for those with AIDS) we once again put the culinary creations of 34 of the regions top restaurants in the spotlight at the Second Annual Philadelphia Magazines Philly Cooks! On Wednesday, January 16th, at the Hyatt Regency Philadelphia. The restaurants represented virtually all areas of the community, from city to suburbs, and a wide range of culinary diversity. In a competition for both artistry and taste, Philly Cooks! highlighted the skill and talent of the areas best restaurants as they unveiled theirDish for 2002. Participants provided displays and tastings of their epicurean delights, and a panel of celebrity judges, Chef Georges Perrier and Esquire Magazines John Mariani,to name just two, judged the dishes by category and pronounced the winners.
 
On December 19th hordes of reindeer took over Old City for the 6th Annual Reindeer Romp. The Friends United in Need Network (FUNN) threw this party (and threw in all the antlers too). Santa's best reindeer brought canned goods for Philabundance before they set out on the 3-stop bar hop. Mansure Music provided strolling musicians to help guide the partiers from the first stop, M Restaurant and Lounge, to the second, 5 Spot, and finally, the last leg, Envy Nightclub.
 
By anyone's estimate, December is a heavy-hitting month on the social calendar. The weekend of December 14th and15th, The Kimmel Center of the Performing Arts opened its doors to Philadelphia royalty and loyal subjects, with celeb concerts by Elton John, singers Denyce Graves and Frederica von Stade, cellist Yo Yo Ma, pianist Emmanual Ax, violinist Itzhak Perlman and of course, our own beloved Philadelphia Orchestra. On Friday, after Elton John belted out the last song in his hour-long showcase, the Kimmel Center was open for everyone's perusal. There were scrumptious buffet stations set up all through the vast hall and circular corridors. On Saturday, post-concert and pre-dancing, we sat down to a spectacular four course dinner with wine pairings. The must-see of the weekend, other than the women's luxurious dresses, the soaring expanse of the concert hall and the rushing hither and thither of the guests, was the rooftop garden under the stars. The giant glass dome reaching over the top of it makes one feel as though they might be plucked from their table by the Man in the Moon at any moment.
 
Richard Keaveney and James Brown held a fundraising reception to benefit MANNA, a non-profit group that helps individuals living with AIDS in Philadelphia. The two generous men opened their house to over 70 caring people on December 10th. Their plush and capacious apartment was decked with festive holiday trimmings and plenty of bubbly to go around. Thanks to Richard and James, and their altruistic friends, a total of $10,000 was raised for MANNA.
