Philadelphia City Hall Tour Guide Director Greta Greenberger (Rm 121 – come visit us in Philadelphia some day) called me yesterday to tell me she had about 20 Reid Rosenthal Where Magazines left and wanted to know if any of Reid’s fans would like them. (OK who was the person who bid on the signed magazine (donation to the Ovarian Cancer Walk), I must have accidentally deleted that email:(
The first 20 people that leave a comment/message to Reid (cause he reads my blog, try to keep it PG rated girls) and then email me w/your address at buzz @ phillychitchat (dot) com I will send you the magazine and I will pay the postage.Here’s a gift for youse an unmarked Reid photo. Thanks everyone for all your support this month and your prayers for my sister. Thru this blog it’s been so nice to meet the Reid Rosenthal and Gerard Butler fans, they are such kindred spirits.

A nice crowd turned out. One problem noted, it was hard to get the crowd to move beyond the bar area. Next time I would suggest setting a buffet in the adjoining room to spread the people out. It’s nice to have butlered hor dourves, but it’s better to have a room to move. Plus the other room had tables and a beautiful set up as the wine storage.

Saw this sign on my way to Atlantic City after the Walk on Saturday. It was on Rt 9 near Asbury Park. Avon-By-The-Sea has big belly trashcans too

I walked home in the rain after the Nicky Hilton event ’cause I was too cheap to take a cab 5 blocks (if it were 6 blocks I would have). Then Sunday & Monday I was sick for the first time in over a year. BummerThe Gourmet Dog Foodie opening on the 1800 block of Chestnut

I went to XIX at the Park Hyatt for lunch the other day. First of all the ambiance is awesome, the history of the room is awe inspiring, my company was great, Anna Iredale PR for the Bellevue and the lunch delicious. They have a $20 lunch which includes salad bar, relish bar and desserts. Plus one entry. My entree was steak, but the salad was great. I probably would just have been happy with that as the dressing was some ancient secret.
200 S Broad St Philadelphia, PA 19102-3803 (215) 893-7892Back in March 2009 I wrote that I had heard that The Ritz-Carlton would be having outdoor dining, which they began in May; they would be getting new signage for 10Arts, which they just installed

and they would get awnings with their name on it. I guess they worked everything out with the zoning folks cause all three are now adorning the building at 10 Ave of the Arts
Another one of those new road imprints that Brian Howard of The Philadelphia City paper was writing about last week.

It wasn’t a sweet ending, the other day I went here and got a yogurt. The bill was $5.03 I should have taken the darn blueberry off, but I guess the $.03 adds up so I had to break a $10. Maybe she thought she would get the $.97 for a tip since it’s self serve. Just had to get that off my chest.
