2003 Parties
Listing 41-45 of 89

The Philadelphia Orchestra kicked off its new season on Wednesday, September 17th, celebrating their new conductor, Christoph Eschenbach, with a black-tie gala dinner and concert featuring classical cellist Yo Yo Ma. As always, the Kimmel Center threw an elegant cocktail hour in the open ground floor. Restaurant Associates served up their usual high-brow yet crowd-pleasing fare at tables adorned with branchy floral arrangements in square vases done by Evantine Designs.
 
Denim nightclub hosted the Bikini Beach Bash on Thursday, July 24th, complete with celeb attendees, like DJ Jazzy Jeff, a gaggle of girls from the Philadelphia Charge, and a sprinkling of Sixers and Eagles players. At the end of the night there was the official bikini contest, which quickly turned into what appeared to be a strip contest as the girls shed those pesky bikinis atop the bar. Sorry guys, out of respect for innocent bystanders there is no photographic record of that.
 
As part of a month-long summer music concert series, the Philadelphia Chamber Orchestra performed on August 7th in Rittenhouse Square. The free concert was attended by couples lolling on picnic blankets with a bottle of Sauvignon Blanc, young marrieds with a baby or two covered in ice cream dribbles, and the occasional jogger, annoyed by the throngs blocking the pavement.
 
The Alliance Francaise held a Bastille Day fete at the new National Constitution Center at 6th and Arch Streets on, yes, Bastille Day. Many guests wore red, white, and blue – no stars, just stripes, and sipped 1997 Chateau Lynch-Bages and nibbled at the delightful feast put on by Max and Me caterers. Though it was a Monday night, the continental spirit got people out onto the dance floor, swinging to Eddie Bruce's band, stellar as usual.
 
To celebrate the kick-off of the Philadelphia International Gay and Lesbian Film Festival, the director and stars of the film Latter Days gathered for a pre-screening party. Jacqueline Bisset, one of the movie's stars, was on hand to introduce the cast at the theater later in the evening.
