Executive Summary: See what happens, when timely breaking news occurs it pushes back my best laid out plans of which stories I am going to post. Now it's been a bit and no one has reported extensively on some of the celeb sightings that have occurred in the past week, so I am just going to keep them for the NBC Non-Stop channel 248 The Scene with Justin Pizzi 9:30PM everynight. You'll find out about the "The Taxi" reunion with DeVito and Danza and were they broke bread, where they stayed, where they partied. As well as The Always Sunny Folks and what they did while they were here in Philly and not celebrating the 25th Anniversary of the GPFO and a whole bunch of tidbits on the filming of Safe and what the celebs do on their downtime. For now check out this banging blast of a time at the VIP opening of the new Mitchell & Ness store in Center City. HughE 2030 was a crazy name I came up with years ago. It was the year I was hoping to retire and live in the Keys drinking long island ice teas.

By the time I got there after attending an earlier event, it was packed with a few of the usual suspects, and many more fun Philadelphian's like the Mayor, Philly Gossip columnist Dan Gross, guest who looks familiar and Michael Barkann, Comcast Sports
Mayor Michael Nutter, DJ Jazzy Jeff and Sean Mckinney, President of Mitchell and Ness.
To the DJ both were both DJ Jazzy Jeff and the mayor rapped it out. the last time he rapped this song it was with ?uest Love. (And Chris Gabello tells me the Mayor appeared with the Sugar Hill gang once too.)
