Creed 2 News, Koreana Food Coming to Center City and more Chit Chat


Creed 2 News, Koreana Food Coming to Center City and more Chit Chat

Warm welcome to spring, sure signs of it in Philly, Logan Fountain has been turned on, Rittenhouse Square packed at lunch time and in the evening Rittenhouse restaurant row packed with people eating al fresco.  Hope to see everyone on Easter Sunday for the South Street promenade which begins at 12:30PM at Passyunk and South Streets.
Michael B Jordan was spotted running the Schuylkill River Banks Boardwalk last week.

Creed 2 starts principle filming Monday April 2 at Sun Center Studios in Aston, Pa with a cast of thousands of extras. I think they’re filming the finale fight first, not only because of the huge amount of extras on set, but because the actors have been working out and pumping up for the past three weeks at the Sporting Club where they also have a boxing ring. The kind of training they’re doing isn’t the kind of training you can do while you’re filming a movie.

They’ll be at Sun Center Studios until the the middle of the third week of April filming, but may pop out to do occasional filming around town during those three weeks. After April 15 look for more filming in and around Philadelphia. You might have a chance to see them as we all did during the first Creed. Look for Creed 2 to come out November 2018.

David Whitaker, Choose Chicago, Ellen Yin (Outstanding Restaurateur), Clare Reichenbach, James Beard Foundation, Michael Solomonov (Outstanding Service Zahav) and Rising Star Chef of the Year Camille Cogswell, Zahav

On Wednesday the cast of Creed 2 including Dolph Lundgren, Michael B Jordan and Tessa Thompson had dinner at Zahav, in old city, the restaurant by Michael Solomonov or Solo as his friends call him. It’s so good there. The restaurant just got a James Beard Award Nomination for best service. James Beard Awards are like the Oscars for Food. I covered the nominations last week, which were held here in Philly, hosted by Visit Philly and held at Parc restaurant. Also nominated was Ellen Yin, of High Street & for best restaurateur.  Rich Landau, chef/partner with his wife, Kate Jacoby, of Vedge restaurant who was nominated for best chef in the mid-Atlantic region.



Milk House closed 2 weeks ago as I reported on Chit Chat; Yesterday I noticed a new sign on the window:
Seems Koreana Food is moving in. They currently have a place in University City.

Koreana Food offers a wide variety of traditional Korean Food.Yes 1818 Market Street did get a new sign. Sleek, modern and colorful.

Real Estate I Shot: 402 Joseph St, Norristown, PA 19403 For Sale

Michelle Leonard, realtor to the stars and regular folks like us, hired me to shoot another home for her. Congrats to her 2 weeks ago she sold a million dollar beauty which I had photographed as well.


The home is at 402 Joseph St, Norristown, PA 19403

3 beds3 baths2,755 sqft – look there’s my head in the mirror, lol

OK this bathroom is back to the future fun, imagine all the stories you’ll remember from granma’s house and her nostalgic wallpaper.
Definitely keep a shot of this in your house before you renovate
This backyard is memorable, not only is it huge, but on this particular date it was muddy for moi and Mike was none to happy when I didn’t kick it off before heading into our house.
Fortunately for us I shot the backyard before I headed into this house. Love this foyer. There is actually 3 entrances to the house, this was one of them.
Holy cow another bathroom
This is definitely my favorite view of the family room/dining area. I can hear Carol and Mike now “Alice is dinner ready, where are the kids?
Great light flows into this room
That fridge is a bucket list for me

Then back to the future with the wall oven. This was definitely a high line item in the 70s.
One of my favorite bedrooms, with lots of light and closet space.

Laundry rooms near the side door are the best. I can hear my mom now, put your gym clothes in the washer…leave your shoes here. Wash your hands at the utility sink.
Another view of the living/dining rooms and a shot of the upstairs hallwayLucky parents their kids will never have the joy of sneaking out in the middle of the night to go play with friends with these safely conscious windows.

Check out the complete listing here:

Malcolm Jenkins And Whitney Thomas Celebrate Terrace Daniels’ BoConcepts

Earlier this month Whitney Thomas and Malcolm Jenkins celebrated their collaboration with Terrace Daniels and his modern furniture store – BoConcepts at 1719 Chestnut St with a fun, fashionable pop up party.

There were all these fun “conversation starters” in piles, to encourage people to chat. What a great idea, and a super nice gesture to mix and mingle.
Welcome back to Replica Creative Larry Griffin, here with everyone’s best friend Kristyn Aldrich.
