WHY YES THAT IS A GUN IN MY POCKET!! - Dead Man Down Fashion on the Set - Does Colin Farrell have PJ's on?

Sorry If I haven't gotten back to you, I am all over this movie filming in Center City, but will be working all weekend to get back to you. Thanks for your patience.

First a couple celeb sightings Armand Assante had dinner at Serafina the other night, the following night Sigourney Weaver stopped in.  Jen Creed will be singing live at Serafina on May 10.  Kevin Borlee from the Belgium running team had dinner at D'Angelo's with the entire team. He's ranked 3rd in the world in the 400m.  Colin Farrell continues to be a great guy at the Sporting Club. He's been using the tanning bed, lifting weights, doing sit ups and chatting up anyone that approaches him. Investigative reporter John Stossel gave a talk on Wednesday at the Union League. No longer with ABC, he has a show on the Fox network these days.  I'll be on Fox 29 Good Day Philly with Jen Frederick at 7:45AM on Monday.

 Today's Fashion Friday and well there's a lot of fashion that floats by me while we're in between scenes.

 I call this so adorable!

Over the shoulder
A birds eye view looking down Walnut Street towards Colin Farrell

OMG I just passed actor Terrence Howard. Then Terrence just started walking with them, eventually getting a photo with each and everyone. He's the kinda movie star you wish all of them would be.

Now this is Philly Street Style at it's best!

I guess they still sell jeans with holes in them

Cute skirt
Colin Farrell near the Latham Hotel, poses with a fan. Is he in his PJ's? (Check out on Monday for the stories.)

Extras in the scene. I heard they wanted folks who could dress like they were in NYC. Does it look different than Philly Style?

I'm not sure anyone in Philly would wear that tie with those sneakers.

WWE wrestler has hung up his belt for now and can be seen on the streets of Philly in Dead Man Down. Wade Barrett and Luis Da Silva Jr. In the background you can see peeps watching the scenes.
I just wanna be petted

Phillies Future Looks Bright as long as Hunter is "Doing Pences"

Philadelphia Futures prepares low-income, first-generation-to-college students for higher education opportunities. 

Sunday after the game a lot of the Phillies headed over to North Bowl to participate in the charity bowling and billiards event.

Where CBS 3′s Jim Donovan and Matthew Nadu, and 6 ABC’s Ali Gormon, Amy Buckman, Kenneth Moton and Rick Williams also participated. About Moton goes for a strike

Prompting his co-worker Amy Buckman to celebrate with a happy dance high five

Phils catcher Carlos Ruiz, who hosted the night’s Get in the Game Bowling & Billiards Tournament at North Bowl, let's one rip with speed down the ally.

I noticed Phillies rightfielder Hunter Pence had a hand gesture of his own when he got a strike or spare

First he would stare down the pins

Fist pump the air up

Then side to side, finally fist bumping with a team mate and throwing up his hands to the heavens.  I checked out the tapes on Youtube to see if he does this on the field and couldn't find any? Have you seen him "Doing Pences". It could be the Phillies answer to Teabowing. We could use a championship again, praise the Lord!

More info on the event the other night in my Philly Mag column Here

Oh What A Night....Donors are Heroes Party at the Four Seasons

Friday Night was the Donors Are Heroes' 10th annual "THE Party" at the Four Seasons Philadelphia

You can listen while you check out the story, but come back as it's a dark video, and by dark I just mean I could use a lighting system. Maybe dark for the Mariah Carey song he played for the 2nd to last of the night, but loved it any who cause it's so much fun, like THE PARTY. So Much Fun. I'm surprised you were there, it's the best Party, as far as Parties go. Sure I have other favorites, but two days later I'm still relishing in the fun moments. Here we go....
 Co-founded by Renee and Don Freeman (Freeman Interiors) Donors are Heroes raises awareness about organ donation.  A group of dedicated friends, committed to raising public awareness for the importance of becoming an organ and tissue donor, to dispel myths and provide a means for people to share their donation wishes with family and friends.  This year's co-chairs were Eric Allen (l), Lauren Huezo & Tina Lamsback (center). (I'll have a fun photo on PhillyMag from this party later today.)
Honorees for the night were Bernard and Joan Spain- 10th Anniversary Heroes of the Year Award. Bernie addressing the guests at the VIP party.
There's a reason it's called "The Party" cause as soon as DJ Eddie Tully put the needle to the record the dance floor fills up til the stroke of 11.
 Aida Sparta, Michael Messina and Anne Nikolas << Best use of white before Memorial Day
 The bold, the beautiful, the Louboutin to the Amiclubwear heeled ladies were turned out to party. 
Dana Spain, Robin Bond and Leanna Johannes 
 Mike Haberman, Brian Singer, Keith and Nadine Mecca, Michele Haberman and Jared Solonmon, Esq. (Who I worked with at Kohn Swift & Graf, when I was a paralegal. He just gave his notice to join the Army to be a Jag Officer.)
  Jimmy Kazanjian and Lisa Gaudio

The money raised from ticket sales will go directly to help maintain our public awareness programs, school summits and teaching initiatives. All of which are geared to educate and dispel the myths surrounding becoming an organ donor and the need for life-saving, life-enhancing transplants.

 Patricia Benitez, Steve and Tamar Olitsky (Table 31. This Thursday is the launch of Table 31's outside cafe. Come by and have some Patron on the patio.) and Beth Shak, who just launched her new website ShoesRforever, I'll have those party pixs for you shortly.
Maria Quettrone and Chip Kanzinger
 Over $100,000 was raised for donor awareness and education. Did you know it's not against your religion to donate your organs. You could save a life.  This was the cocktail area at 10PM, still packed.
The Four Seasons made the most delicious sliders; they didn't give me indigestion the next day. Now that's saying something.
 Stacey Fetherston, Jenn Deluca, Quinn David and Jennie Riccio, all with Gift of Life
  Looking fly Alisa Jackson - the theme for the night was black and white and Alisa wins for the unique mixed use.

 The best kick ass clutch I've seen, every. Kick ass because if she swings it at you, it's gonna kick your ass
 Kirby and Amber Mallon and Lynsie and Evan Solomon (Lynsie & I volunteer for Donors Are Hero's. I brought her on board. Did you know she's chairing the women's committee fashion show this year at the Union League. Fashions by Nicole Miller, jewelery by Lago's.) were dancing in place, cause the
dance floor was packed all night. That's the kinda party The Party is. For $75 there was a bar, food, music, no attitude and lots of awareness.
 Steffie Freedman and Christa Guidi. BTW if you don't have plans for Mother's Day yet, why not have brunch at Top of the Tower , they're having a Mother's Day Brunch
