L:INKS: Did I Take Your Photo This Week

Hey guys, who said the summer would be slow, it wasn't for me. I haven't run a few columns, this is a lot of run on sentences. One is the HA Winstons reunion, I will probably next week. Sexy Singles another one that got away. Then there's Joan Shepp, Monday in Philly Mag, then more of the photos in PCC sometime next week. There were a lot of people there, it was a great party, one of the best small non charity events of the year with lots of beautiful people of all shapes, sizes and colors. Joan Shepp is a trailblazer, always. I always tell my subjects to come here to find their photos. Here are photos from last week. As for Diner en blanc, I will put the links up on Saturday. Thanks

OK here's links to parties I covered this past week. 6 columns on my other outlets this week, as well as 5 on PCC, not bad for one guy. (Not including the ones I'll be doing today, Friday)
So excited for my vacation on Saturday. Even though I'm not in town I'll still have columns on PCC & that Joan Shepp one in Philly Mag.

... comes home to Roost - Boutique Hotel Opens in Center City

A few months ago I tweeted that two boutique hotels would be opening in Center City in 2014. One has come home to Roost and it's called The Roost. 
It's located at the corner of 15th and Chestnut Streets in the 1920s-era Grande Building which also houses Del Frisco's Steak House.

 This is the lobby of the Grande, it used to be a marble, but the developers decided to cover up it up to make it seem more modern to reflect the branding of The Roost. At first they thought to build a slight wall in front of the original wall, but working with The Honigman Group and Replica Creative they came up with an adhesive coverup that is easily taken off. What a great idea to do, you can do it in your house instead of painting too. (And they're my advertisers too so I like them.>>)
