Parties
Listing 1306-1310 of 1369

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.
 
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.
 
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.
