The Clay Studio, a Philadelphia Ceramic Arts haven, recently held a three-day weekend, November 9th to the 11th, to celebrate the ceramic artists and collectors with a series of lectures, house tours, gallery receptions, an auction, and the piece de resistance, a Grand Buffet dinner held at Norman and Suzanne Cohn's house. The Cohns are generous patrons of the arts as well as avid collectors of ceramic, glass, precious metals and craft art. The dinner was produced by their private chef, Tony Clark, and eaten with relish (not the green kind) by more than 85 guests throughout the Cohn's wonderfully original home.
 
We at Philadelphia Magazine don't need much of an excuse to throw a party. On November 28th we threw one at the Four Seasons Philadelphia for two reasons – to honor our choice of Volunteer of the Year, Ann Hamilton, and to launch our guide, Philadelphia Magazine's Social Datebook 2002, to the best charity events happening in and around Philadelphia. As our publisher, David Lipson says, "from cover to cover, our ‘little black book' is an invaluable tool." Those in the know can also reference it here, online at our website.
 
At the third annual Pumpkin Ball on October 26th, in keeping with the spirit of Halloween, nearly every single person was wearing a costume. The event, the most successful to date, was hosted by the Pumpkin Patch for Kids Foundation, founded by local, young professionals. The PPKF raises money for the Palliative Care (end of life) Program at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. All were in high spirits at this good-hearted event, dancing and enjoying the nibbles and drinks.
 
Twice a year, for 16 years running, the Smith and Wollensky Group hold a national Wine Week in big cities across the country. Philadelphia is one of the lucky places that participates, in our very own Smith and Wollensky's on the square. Imagine, for only $10 above the cost of the meal, you get unlimited wine with your lunch! Not just any old house wine either – we're talking Trefethen Vineyards, Far Niente Winery, Moet and Chandon Champagne, and the like. Our very favorite of all the wines served on Friday, October 5th, was the Trefethen 1998 Merlot.
 
It was worth the trek to the Millenium Center in Conshohocken for the The Foundation for Architecture's Halloween Beaux Arts Ball on Saturday, October, 26th. The ball was preceded by a buffet dinner, and afterward, everyone with full bellies, came rolling into the huge white tent to dance off the calories. Only about 15 percent of the 2,500 guests actually arrived in costume, but there was face-painting and silly hats for sale for those who wanted to get into the spirit of Halloween. By two a.m. only the diehard dancers were left and we threw in the towel to the sounds of the band singing a Michael Jackson song.
