Hordes of people gathered in the sun-dappled shade of Rittenhouse Square Wednesday night, August 1st , to enjoy a free jazz concert featuring the critically acclaimed, fourteen-member Antibalas (Spanish for "Bulletproof") Afrobeat Orchestra, and the Brazilian jazz group Soul Samba. The two-hour concert drew nearly 800 spectators, some of whom got up to dance as the music moved them, or sat with picnic baskets on the grass throughout the park.
 
Join us at the Sofitel Hotel as we honor the 2001 winners of the Best Of Philly. Over 500 winners, guests and Philadelphia Magazine staff celebrated together on Monday, July 31, 200l. The mood was festive as friendly Philadelphians circulated, striking up conversations with new friends and old. Winners from all six categories - food, shopping, drinks, services, kids, and arts - were well represented.
 
The Philadelphia Orchestra presented a "University City Neighborhood Concert" on Friday, July 6th among the trees and greenery of West Philadelphia's nine-acre, century-old Clark Park. The free concert was performed in The Bowl, a natural hillside within the park for over 2,500 classical music lovers. Parents brought their children and young couples snuggled on blankets to soak in the music on the sun-dappled evening. The concert was part of ongoing efforts by University City District, a non-profit cooperative partnership that unites the neighorhoods to improve the quality of life and raise the profile of West Philadelphia.
 
Mayor John Street, along with co-chairs Bonnie Grant, Lana Felton-Ghee and executive director Karen Leslie-Garrison put on a big bash to celebrate City Hall's 100th Anniversary on Saturday, June 23rd. Philadelphia's City Hall is the largest in the nation, built in the style of the French Second Empire, with 88 million bricks! Fourteen of the nearly 700 rooms played host to as many radio stations who decorated the rooms with themes like "Sounds of the 80's", "76ers Tribute", and "Our Sinatra." As people traipsed from room to room and floor to floor, Party Central hosted a string of singers in the Mayor's Reception Room, as well as delicious desserts, including a giant cake shaped like City Hall.
 
The nation's oldest zoo, our very own and very well-loved Philadelphia Zoo, held its 27th annual Zoobilee on Thursday, June 14. This year, the Zoo was transformed into an Australian Wallaby Walkabout. A Philadelphia tradition, the Zoobilee is the Zoo's oldest and largest fundraiser. Over 3500 people attended what is one of the favorites of the social calendar year. This wild and wooly party looked as though it might be a damp one but the early and unwelcome shower blew right over. People headed out from down under and packed the walkways and tents, chatting and enjoying the wonderful food and drinks. One of the most festive events of the season, this party carried on until the workweek-wee hour of 11 pm or so, with revelers packing the dance floors.
