Fork's Chef Terence Feury 2nd Annual Summer Fisherman’s Trip and Dinner

Now this sounds like fun. Bring your Dramamine though just in case.

When I was a kid there was nothing more fun then going fishing with dad, then coming home to eat our catch for the day. So excited that Chef Terence Feury does a fishing trip like this so you too can experience the excitement and joy like that.

PHILADELPHIA, PA – On Saturday, July 17, Chef Terence Feury of Old City’s acclaimed Fork (306 Market Street, 215-625-9425) will host his second-annual Summer Fisherman’s Trip and Dinner. Working collaboratively with fishmonger Anthony McCarthy, Chef Feury will take guests on a chartered fishing expedition that leaves from Atlantic City, New Jersey; and in the evening, he and his guests return to Fork, where he prepares and serves the day’s catch as the freshest seafood feast in Philadelphia.

“Our annual Summer Fisherman’s Dinner is the ideal opportunity for diners to follow their food from the ocean to their plate,” says Chef Feury. “There is no better way to spend a beautiful summer Saturday than catching black bass in the Atlantic Ocean, then having it prepared and served by our team at Fork.”

Reservations are required for this very special day and can be made by calling (215) 625-9425. The cost is $200 per person (excluding tax and gratuity) which includes an 8 a.m. breakfast at Fork:etc., transportation to Atlantic City, the fishing trip, scheduled to leave port at 9:30 a.m. (including equipment and bait), return transportation, lunch and a special dinner at Fork beginning at 7 p.m. (excluding beverages, tax and gratuity). Additional diners may be added for $50 (excluding beverages, tax and gratuity). Last year’s Summer Fisherman’s Trip and Dinner was such a success that it landed on the front page of The Philadelphia Inquirer, where attendee and food writer Rick Nichols outlined the entire day, from leaving port at in the morning to dolphins leaping beside the boat to the delightful catch of black bass and one sizable fluke, which Chef Feury expertly prepared for dinner.

Owned by Ellen Yin and Roberto Sella, Fork has been a fixture in Old City for 13 years and has been featured in USA Today, The New York Times, Travel and Leisure, Gourmet, Food & Wine, Esquire and other prestigious publications. Philadelphia Magazine has recognized Fork with 11 “Best of Philly” awards, including: “Best Wine List, Value,” “Best Brunch Spot,” “Best Lunch Spot” and “Best Late Night Dining.”
In a recent “Three Bell: Excellent” review, The Philadelphia Inquirer gushed,
“few restaurants in town right now can match Fork for fine dining value, given the vibrantly crafted flavors,” and added that Chef Feury and his team “deliver vividly flavored, hand-crafted delights on every dish.”

Fork and Fork:etc., the adjacent gourmet take-out and casual dining cafe, are located in Philadelphia’s bustling Old City, the region’s most eclectic mix of one-of-a-kind retailers, restaurants and centers for the arts. Its village-like vibe makes any stroll more than a shopping trip; no wonder National Geographic Traveler recently referred to Old City as “arguably the liveliest urban neighborhood between SoHo and South Beach.”

For more information about the Summer Fisherman’s Trip and Dinner, please call Fork at (215) 625-9425, visit and follow them on Twitter @ForkRestaurant.

Q102, the Philadelphia area’s favorite Top 40s radio station, is hosting Paul D’s DJ night, in conjunction with The Deck in Essington. To celebrate our nation’s independence with a little bit of dancing, they’ve decided to call the night “Red, White and Pauly D.”

NBC10 is reporting that Special guests after their press conference will be

Michael Lohan,
"Tool Academy"’s Jordan Alexander and Devon James.

One of my biggest selling pixs in the last few months was:

Justin’s Quest aims to raise $250,000 for National Brain Tumor Society & A LOT OF HOT ON PENNS LANDING INCLUDING DOWN THE SHORE WITH THE PHILLY GIRLS

Saturday June 26, 2010

Whatcha all waiting for in this 97F heat?Actors Jackson Rathbone

and Nicola Peltz attended an autograph-signing at Wawa’s Welcome America at Penn’s Landing for their movie The Last Airbender, which opens July 1st. (In The Twilight Saga, Jackson Rathbone plays Jasper Hale.) (Parts of this article appeared in my Philly Mag column Monday.)
The day was hot, and eventually Nicola picked up that table fan and held it a few inches from her face.

3 guys from the Welcome America Crew waiting for their next assignment: Pat McCue, Chuck McCue and Kevin Ferry, on their perch girl watching?
If they had just turned around they would have seen the hot foursome (with George Anastasia) : Down The Shore Emily Reppert, Entela Zemanay, Erin Como and Tanya Smith.
A few young fans were excited to meet them. Catch their weekly reports about what is hot down the shore. Also hot at is anything Marnie Hall reports. Marnie is a natural, which came as a shock to her as she had always worked behind the scenes in the media. One day the original host wasn't available and on a producer's (maybe Jim Barry) hunch Marnie got in front of the camera, and a star was born. (I'd have a link here but I couldn't find poor Marnie's)

Thad Young and Former 76er Darryl Dawkins pose with Joey Friedlander whose brother is Justin Friedlander a boy diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor last March 2009.
Justin Friedlander, age 13, with his mission to shoot 63,000 baskets, one for every person in the US who’s diagnosed with a primary brain tumor each year. Justin’s Quest aims to raise $250,000 for the National Brain Tumor Society.
Less than two months after his diagnosis, Justin had helped to raise nearly $50,000 through the Race for Hope in D.C. to help with brain tumor research. Later in 2009, he started Justin’s Quest, with a goal of finding a cure for brain tumors.
His 63,000th shot will be done at the NBA All-Star Game in February. Until then, folks can help him achieve his goal—as long as he is present on the foul line, even shots that others throw count towards his goal.
His parents Jon and Audrey told me that he is currently up to 14,619. At home his brothers Jacob, Joey and Jordan help him with the free throws.
Philly helped him get over the 15,000th mark.
On Saturday 76er Thaddeus Young took the first shot toward Saturday’s target of 500 baskets, which they achieved.

Wish I had time to make it out there, but I have another local party to attend.


Monday night was the sixth annual Chefs’ Dinner for Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society (PAWS), an event that brings chefs and patrons together for an interactive evening of food, fun and fundraising. More than 40 of the nation’s best chefs created an extraordinary gastronomic experience at The Union League. The dress was “gala chic,” but not black tie. The list was the who’s who of the Philadelphia area and, of course, animal lovers.Dana Spain 2nd from left and her mother 1st on the right.

The Union League was the perfect spot to host such a prestigious event. Each room held pods of various restaurants, and was decorated in that restaurants theme design. I don't have too many photos of the night as I arrived late having been at the hospital all day for a relative who wants to remain anonymous', procedure.

SO wonderful to see so many socialites, friends and frenimies gather to support a prestigious cause. It's great that people can see beyond the politics to help support those without a voice. The guests gather for dessert on the main floor.
