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.
 
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.
 
Fox Chase Cancer Center held their 2001 Garden Party and Country Buffet at the Douglas Pearson's beautiful riverfront estate in Solebury on the 24th of June. The auction, which included items like Caribbean cruises, resort stays, a week at the shore, and four bottles of rare California wine, raised funds for research at the FCCC. Over 300 people strolled over the grounds by the swirling river on what was a truly perfect summer day – a few wispy clouds, 75 degrees, having an elegant lunch – what could be better?
 
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.
