Philadelphia Flower Show Black-Tie Gala and Afterparty


The 2015 Philadelphia Flower Show opened on Friday, February 27, 2015, with a black-tie gala. Guests enjoyed hors d’oeuvres and a cocktail party under a marquee of beautiful flowers while surrounded by Caribbean pirates, playful rats, princesses, and chickens in the barnyard. This year’s theme is “Celebrate the Movies,” and as you may have guessed, there’s a large contingent of displays inspired by Disney movies as well as Hollywood classics. After the cocktail hour, dinner took place among the floral displays. As dinner ended at 10 p.m., guests joined the afterparty where DJ Montone and DJ Jason Weiss kicked off dance party which continued well after midnight. The Flower Show runs through March 8, with a schedule full of special events, celebrity appearances, and lots and lots of beautiful flowers and shopping.

The past month has been a bit of a medical whirlwind for 6 ABC meteorologist Cecily Tynan. In January, she took a tumble skiing in the Poconos and suffered a left ACL tear. She’s since undergone surgery to repair the damage, and has been working hard in daily PT sessions.

Yesterday, Action News ran a segment about her injury, surgery and recovery: “When Dr. [Robert] Frederick showed me the MRI and said, ‘You have an ACL rupture’ — you know, it’s gone — I think I started to cry because I knew I’d be out for a long time,” she says. Read more »

When you’ve got a weather question—especially when said question relates to running—there’s really only one person in Philly to turn to: 6ABC’s Cecily Tynan.

So yesterday, when I asked for her Official, Official Philadelphia Marathon Race Day Forecast, of course she obliged. She even did me one better: She gave me the outlook and clothing suggestions for the entire Marathon Weekend, including tomorrow’s Rothman 8K (which Cecily is running again) and Sunday’s full and half marathons. Here’s the breakdown:

If you follow either Cecily Tynan or Adam Joseph, both fitness-obsessed 6 ABC meteorologists, on Facebook, you get some pretty sweet insight into their workout regimes. Tynan is super into water sports, and they both love running and boxing—activities they often do together.

The pair regularly dons their mitts at Joltin’ Jabs in Manayunk for some friendly (I think? Ha. ) sparring. In fact, in this year’s Be Well Philly print magazine, Joseph told me why he loves his boxing classes so much: “You never stop the entire hour,” he said. “I love it because it strengthens my core, takes the strain off my legs, and conditions non-running muscles.”

Check out the video below that Joseph posted on his Facebook page, showing he and Tynan duking it out at the boxing gym. They, um, pull no punches.
