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.
 
The Rittenhouse Hotel was the place to be on Thursday, October 25th, if you love French food. The March of Dimes held a delicious fundraiser called An Evening in Lyon, complete with four of the world's master French chefs. The gracious and lovely Honorable Daniele Thomas-Easton was the emcee and charmed everyone with her melodic French accent. A reverential hush came over the room when the food was served as people tried to maintain decorum while devouring the sinful fare.
 
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.
 
The Young Friends of the Philadelphia Museum of Art held their kickoff to the social season with their annual Rodin Party on September 19th, at, where else – The Rodin Museum on the parkway. Over 500 guests buzzed hither and thither down the paths bordering the shallow pool. Despite having an open beer and wine bar, no one managed a swim that night. Later, after the museum closed at 8:30, the apres-fete was held at the Philadelphia Raquet Club in Center City. The remaining 300 or so partiers stayed tucked in a high-ceilinged, plush, maroon room that still managed to feel cozy until the last of them dwindled to numbers small enough to be accomodated by Rouge, which is where the party finally wound down late-nite.
 
On September 15th The Institute of Contemporary Art kicked off its newest exhibit showcasing Rudi Gernreich's fashion creations of the 1960's and 70's, which include topless bathing suits and micro-miniskirts (cue the chorus of men cheering). After the opening reception, guests headed over to the Zellerbach Theatre of the Annenberg Center for the Performing Arts for a concert given by noted singer/composer John Cale, formerly of the Velvet Underground. This ICA exhibit, Rudi Gernreich: Fashion Will Go Out of Fashion runs from September 15th to November 11th, 2001.
