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.
 
Inliquid.com and The Art Biz hosted the second annual art auction at the performance garage of Jeanne Ruddy Dance on September 22nd. DJs Crystal Clear and Cozmic Cat provided music throughout the silent auction and later, at the after party at Ruba Hall. Profits from this event will benefit the community-based cultural education center, Taller Puertorriqueno's, children's art programs. Over 75 local artists and 60 businesses donated items to be sold at auction.
 
The Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts held its 3rd annual wine auctions, to the delight of area winelovers. The event took place at the beautiful Museum at Broad and Cherry Streets on September 21st. Sotheby's humorous and able auctioneer, C. Hugh Hildesley, conducted the sale of some very rare and highly sought-after international wines. After viewing and tasting the lots of wine, bidders competed to see who would take home these prized items. A gourmet dinner was served in the rotunda, surrounded by gorgeous works of art.
 
Mercedes Benz sponsored a test-driving promotion in Philadelphia to hype its new 2001 C-class. Their slogan, "Live. A lot," in this case led to Swanky Bubbles on September 20th. The idea is to get people out to drive the cars by offering a free appetizer with their meal. Good for the restaurant, good for Mercedes. If you want to buy a Mercedes-Benz, then it's good for you too.
