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.
 
On Monday, August 27 the Mann Center for Performing Arts celebrated its 25th anniversary with conductor Zubin Mehta and the Israel Philharmonic in an All-Beethoven performance - 25 years after their Mann Center debut! The Mann offers diverse, world-class entertainment and nothing captures the spirit of that better than this internationally acclaimed orchestra. After the concert, guests gathered under the stars to watch the fireworks and top off the evening with a cake and champagne birthday celebration.
 
A world of art, music, dance, films, food and fun awaits you each week for Wednesday night at the Philadelphia Museum of Art as it hosts different musical groups, shows themed films, and runs gallery lectures on various artists or art forms. They also cook a meal in the spirit of the evening. On Wednesday, August 22, the event was called "Pickin' and Hoofin' at the PMA." Folk music, percussive dancer Sandy Silva, and the Gallery Talk, "Pickin' with Pippin", with Sarah Powers, the Curatorial Assistant in Modern and Contemporary Art drew a diverse crowd of nearly 450. Also, watch out for the PMA's upcoming Friday nights for the young professionals crowd starting in early October.
 
There are few things quite as thrilling as sitting before an incredible selection of silky, sensuous cheeses that are waiting to be paired with an ambitious by-the-glass wine program. Bistro St. Tropez has both. So, on August 8th, DiBruno Brothers Cheese shop (Best Of winner of our Center City Cheese Shop, 2001) and the Moore Bros. wine aficionados came together at Bistro St. Tropez to guide over 40 eager tasters in a wine and cheese pairing. Bistro St. Tropez closed off their bar area for us, blissfully smoke-free, and we all enjoyed ourselves immensely while watching the sun set.
