Why Was Harry Styles in Philly; New Trader Joes; Movie News & Celebs Spotted

Why Was Harry Styles in Philly; New Trader Joes; Movie News & Celebs Spotted in Philly

Hope you all had a great weekend. You’re probably wondering why am I writing my Philly Gossip column on Monday, well I didn’t want everyone showing up a funeral to find Harry Styles on Sunday. Yes, the Harry Styles was in the Philly area over the weekend.

Harry took a Selfie with the American Airline pilot who flew piloted him to PHL yesterday afternoon. He’s actually been seen in the area over the past few months visiting with his friend Xander Ritz, who lives in nearby Wayne, Pa. I first wrote about the duo back in 2015 when they first met and started to hang out together.

This time Harry Styles came to give his friend Xander Ritz support as Xander’s mom Cynthia Ritz passed away last week. Here the duo were snapped eating out last night. Xander’s parents are philanthropic, dad is a popular dentist on the Mainline, while mom, Cindy Ritz, was a longtime steward and volunteer in Radnor, Donations can be made to the Wayne Art Center in her name online here.

I heard a rumor, that the rumored 2nd Trader Joe’s in Center City was well underway on the on the ground floor of the parking garage located across the street from the Convention Center, so I stopped by over the weekend to see for myself. The 1324 Arch St. property is compact at 15,750 of retail space, which is slightly more I learned than the average size of a Trader Joe’s property of 15,000 sq ft including the backroom, storage area and worker’s break room, says Supermarket News. The original rumor was written about by Jacob Adelman, Inquirer back in January. There’s still no official word from the company.

Emmett Smith stopped by Del Frisco’s for dinner last week with a few friends. The Twins Dana and Jen Fioravanti, maîtres d’ at Del Frisco’s Double Eagle Steakhouse posed with their good friend. Also dining out last week was Jeb Bush at Louie, Louie in University City. He was spotted twice last week at lunch. For the past year he has been teaching at University of Pennsylvania as Presidential Professor of Practice role at Penn

Sofitel’s Drag Queen Tea Attic Fundraiser Plus A Month of Pride Events

Sofitel Philadelphia at Rittenhouse Square, part of AccorHotels, will celebrate June as Gay Pride Month with a series of new events and initiatives, including turning the hotel lobby into the Pride Month “LGBTQ Hall of Flags.” For the first time ever, Sofitel will fly a giant Philadelphia Pride Flag on the outside of the hotel. Inside, look for the flag to be joined by six individual LGBTQ flags flying high above the lobby to celebrate the diversity of the hotel’s community.

Sofitel Philadelphia kicks off Pride Month during Philadelphia’s Gay Pride Weekend. On Saturday, June 8th, and again on Saturday, June 15th, look for a new spin on a time-honored tradition.

Sofitel, famous for its classic afternoon tea service, will debut a new Drag Tea featuring Brittany Lynn’s Drag Mafia. Sip tea (or spill it) in the presence of fabulous Drag Queens as you enjoy delicious offerings from Sofitel’s award-winning culinary team. Drag Tea starts each week at 2:00pm and runs through 4:00pm inside Chez Colette Brasserie. Last weeks event was a sold out spectacular, hilarious time. You’ll want to go this weekend.

Sofitel will conclude Pride Month in Philadelphia with the opening art reception for French Kiss by Janice Telstar on Thursday, June 27th, from 5:00pm to 7:00pm.

Happy Gay Pride Philly

www.phillychitchat.com

As someone who’s attended nearly 30 years of Philly Gay Pride Parades, this year was the best year. I remember in the beginning the parade consisted of gathering in Washington Square Park, to walking around City Hall to nearly what it is today which is a grand parade starting in the Gayborhood, walking past Independence Hall and a festival to cap the day off.

Sunday felt different, it felt like what we had, what our the gay brothers and sisters fought for all these years. A community that comes together to celebrate our visibility, our diversity, the thread of connection which empowers us to be brave, be out and make a difference.
Thank you to Frannie Price and her team bringing us together for the 31st time, in the historic 50th year since the riots of Stonewall.

I’m not gonna let anyone tell me any different!!
Thank you allies for helping us with our visibiliy

It’s very simple why we have parades, festivals, and why we shout it from the rooftops. Being invisible allows other people, society to define you. Being visible we define ourselves, and what is best for our community, working towards that living, breathing goal.

The Piazza Pod Park Opens

Last night I attended a most unusual beer garden type of outdoor space, a wonderland of food and beer I would call it. Definitely not like any you’ve experienced before, it’s in Northern Liberties in the former space where we all used to park for free across from the Piazza. The official opening of the Piazza Pod Park as the grand opening weekend will take place on Saturday, June 8, 2019 at 10AM (POD PARK WEBSITE)

Now it’s a fun spot where you’ll want to spend a lazy afternoon or a starry night with friends. There is still free parking with validation of your Pod Park visit. The parking lot is at the corner of 2nd and Germantown Ave, on Germantown avenue.

Piazza Pod Park will be far be the largest dining destination and beer garden-style space in the city to open this spring – with 35,000 square feet of outdoor space that is uniquely Northern Liberties, featuring dining, art, civic space, kids and fitness components, as well as regular entertainment and events.

Seen: La Festa Italian Street Festival

Filitalia International and Foundation, with support from East Passyunk Avenue Business Improvement District, presented La Festa Italian Street Festival on Sunday, June 2, 2019. Proceeds benefit Italian Immigration Museum located on the avenue.

The annual event was held on East Passyunk (between Broad and Moore) from 11am to 7PM, continuously despite a bit of rain after 4PM. The all-ages street festival featured the much-anticipated South Philly spaghetti eating contest, live music, dancing, food, beer, wine, contests, prizes, vendors, shopping, wine-making demos, vodka water ice, and culinary displays.

There was family fun with lots of children’s games, moon bounce, trampoline, orbitron, duck pond, trackless train rides, water gun fun, soccer games, face painting, and more.

As a bonus, double your fun with East Passyunk Craft Beer Day, as part of Philly Beer Week, on the same date and at the same time over 15+ East Passyunk bars and restaurants.

The Philadelphia Police and Paramedics are hiring this month.

La Festa, nicknamed after La Festa Della Repubblica and Italian National Day, is an Italian national holiday that celebrates when Italy became a republic in 1946. Many of the Museum’s Board of Directors, volunteers and members of the community immigrated here from Italy – or are first and second generation Italians. Each year, the local board and volunteers come together with the East Passyunk community to throw a celebration to mirror the festivals in Italy.

La Festa is organized by Festival Director Saverio Nestico (red shirt), along with an annual committee of volunteers that includes Nick Volpe, Kelly Alexander, Henry Amanto, Miguel Luzon, David Milano, Ray DeJohn and Joseph Rossetti.

She was excited to come in 3rd, check out who came in FIRST and SECOND, and what everyone won over on Philly Voice.

Philadelphia branch of the English-Speaking Union Garden Party at Princess Grace’s Home

The Philadelphia branch of the English-Speaking Union (ESU) of the United States held their annual garden party on Sunday June 2, at The Kelly Family Home in East Falls.

In 2016, Prince Albert of Monaco purchased his late mother’s Philadelphia home. “It feels good,” he told People magazine of buying the Pennsylvania property. “I’m very happy to have saved this old family home from a near certain death or development.”

The ESU was formally organized in the United States in 1920 and arose from the conviction of its founder, Sir Evelyn Wrench and a group of like-minded American and British friends, that maintenance of the close personal and national ties forged during World War I was necessary for the preservation of peace.

The ESU celebrates English as a shared language to foster global understanding and good will by providing educational and cultural opportunities for students, educators, and members.

The Kelly Family was kind enough to host this years event, which was held under a tent in the expansive backyard. Princess Grace of Monaco’s childhood home was also opened for tours on a few of the floors for all to see. It is not a museum as many thought, but a residence where family members live. Although there is access on special occasions.

Andy and Debbie Webster, Mary Darlington co-chairs, with hosts Alexandra Golaszewska and J.B. Kelly and Steve Darlington, co-chair

Princess Grace’s mother
John B. Kelly, built the six-bedroom, 4,000-square-foot home, which would later become the place where Prince Rainier III of Monaco proposed to then-actress Grace Kelly, in this very room.

Thank you to Alexandra Golaszewska, who along with J.B. Kelly I have known socially for several years, who gave me a tour of the house, even the nooks and crannies explaining all the beautiful artifacts on display.

Princess Grace’s writing desk has a photo of Prince Rainier III of Monaco, Princess Grace and her two oldest children Caroline, Princess of Hanover and Albert II, Prince of Monaco . Along with a magazine with The Duchess of Sussex Meghan Markle and Prince Harry on the cover. Inside is also a story on the Kelly Home)
Natanya DiBona, co-host of Le Dîner en Blanc touring the house. There’s a preview party June 11, and the public is invited to attend. It’s there they will announce the date of the annual August event for Philadelphia. The event is free but you must register.
The Living Room

Prince Albert II of Monaco is very concerned about the environment and has created The Prince Albert II Foundation (Official name: Fondation Prince Albert II de Monaco is a Monaco -based charity which has donated millions in various environmental projects. The Foundation was initially created in 2006 by Prince Albert II of Monaco and it concentrates on environmental protection

Some of the guests at the Garden Party

The highlight of the garden party was the singing of the National Athem, the toast to Queen Elizabeth for her 93rd birthday and a lively auction to raise additional funds for the ESU education mission.

Max Yillah discusses the National Shakespeare competition, and how he came in 2nd Place. Congrats that’s huge. Second Prize:  Scholarship and airfare to attend the American Shakespeare Center Theatre Camp

Max Yillah, a Philadelphia area high school student won the annual Shakespeare contest, which allowed him to compete in the National Shakespeare Competition in NYC. High school students nationwide read, analyze, perform and recite Shakespearean monologues and sonnets in three qualifying stages: school, ESU Branch and national.

InBox: LGBTQ Community Celebrates Pride Month in Philadelphia with Events Throughout the City

PHILADELPHIA — June is LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning) Pride Month, and Philadelphia is celebrating with dozens of events throughout the city. The 2019 celebrations mark the 50th Anniversary of the Stonewall Riots, which took place in June 1969.

The City’s Office of LGBT Affairs helps to coordinate local Pride activities, and this year they are also partnering with the Office of Immigrant Affairs and the Free Library of Philadelphia to explore intersectionality between Philadelphia’s LGBTQ and immigrant communities, while also engaging broader audiences—regardless of how they identify.

“Pride Month is a chance for us to celebrate the history and accomplishments of the LGBTQ community, as well as the progress we’ve made toward building a more inclusive society for all people,” said Mayor Jim Kenney. “It is also a time for allies to double-down on our support for our LGBTQ neighbors as they continue to face negative rhetoric from Washington, as well as the ongoing challenges of ignorance, hatred, and bias. We must remain unified as one community as we work to ensure true equality for LGBTQ individuals in Philadelphia, across the country, and around the world.”

“It is a great honor to be part of Philadelphia’s Pride celebrations for 2019—a year with great historical significance for our community as we mark the 50th anniversary of Stonewall,” added Amber Hikes, Executive Director of the Office of LGBT Affairs. “The LGBTQ Rights Movement, which gained prominence 50 years ago through the activism of those present at the Stonewall Riots, has had a challenging past—one that erased the role of queer and transgender people of color in these historic moments. That is why I am so proud of the steps we’ve taken here in Philadelphia to build a more inclusive community. Our own More Color More Pride flag will fly outside of City Hall as a symbol of our commitment to lifting the voices of those who have been marginalized, and the programming happening throughout the month will help elevate those voices and stories as well.”

Events scheduled for Pride Month include:

LGBTQ State of the Union
June 3 | 6:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m.
The Kimmel Center
The second annual LGBTQ State of the Union is a forum for LGBTQ Philadelphians to directly engage with the city’s LGBTQ organizations.

Pride Flag Raising and Pride in the Park

The ceremony will include live performances, dynamic speakers, music, and an appearance from Mayor Kenney. It will also mark the opening of the Friends, Peace, and Sanctuary art exhibits at three galleries around the city, including City Hall, the Free Library, and 12 Gates Art. Following the flag raising, the Office will host Pride in the Park at LOVE Park—featuring games, food trucks, a DJ, and other live entertainment.

Philly Lights Up Rainbow
June 9 and June 30 | Evening hours

To Belong: A Community Conversation
June 27 | 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
Parkway Central Library, The Heim Center, 1901 Vine Street
In recognition of both Immigrant Heritage Month and Pride Month, gather for facilitated conversations that explore what it means to belong. The event is co-sponsored by the Office of Immigrant Affairs, the Office of LGBT Affairs, and the Free Library of Philadelphia.

Free Library Ongoing Programming
The Free Library of Philadelphia is celebrating Pride Month with a series of programming running throughout the month of June. Neighborhood libraries across the city will host poetry events, film screenings, LGBTQ+/gender-diverse “rainbow” storytimes, and more in celebration and support of the LGBTQ community.

Nuisance 7-11 Closes; 6ABC Wedding, Jillian and Jessica Out and About, Best People Watching

Relax it’s only Sunday, but if you’re looking for something to do I have a suggestion the annual La Festa Street Festival on East Passyunk from 11am to 7pm. I’ll be shooting the event between 1PM and 330PM, you can find me at the spaghetti eating contest at 3PM. Bon Appétit!!

There’s one less place to grab a slurpee this summer as the packed, but often troubled 7-11 store across from Love Park has closed. Super convenient for grab and go items, especially since the closest Wawa can’t be found for blocks. It’s actually perfect for a Wawa since they already handle massive crowds at their Broad and Walnut, and 20th and Market Stores. If you need your Slurpee fix, especially on 7/11 Slurpee Day, when they give away free Slurpee’s, you can find one at 1319 Market Street, or 1835 Arch Street. Customers can stop into their local 7-Eleven between 7 a.m. and 11 p.m. local time to receive a small Slurpee for free.
Congrats are in order for 6ABC producer Jessica Gonzalez who married the love of her life yesterday Andrew H, in Montauk, New York, her happy place. Many of her co-workers went to the chapel including Brian & Mara Taff, Alicia Vitarelli, Sharrie Williams, Matt Pellman, as well as a few alumni’s Kenneth Moton, who is now a correspondent for ABC News and Shirleen Allicot who now co-anchors Eyewitness News This Morning and Eyewitness News at Noon in ABC7 in NYC.
Last night I did a radio segment for Style Club Radio, 1210 WHPT at 11pm, with Josh DeMarco is Philadelphia’s NEW on-air hub/mecca of style and fashion and co-hosted by Creative Director and Fashion designer Steveala Sanchez, and Michelle Miller. Then we all headed to Stratus Lounge to catch Quest Love spin at the Roots Picnic After Party. It was a no cell phones, social media party but I was able to get this one shot at a point where everyone seemed to whip out their phones to capture the legend behind the turntable. Quest Love will be spinning once again tonight, at an all age party on the Moshulu at 6PM. Tickets are only $15. This time they’ll be securing your phone in a sealed envelope. Just don’t open it on deck. (Info)
Congrats to Pearl Properties their news place , The Harper, is 100 Percent Leased on opening day June 1.
Two beautiful reporters walk into a bar, well in this case a popular restaurant Double Knot. Jessica Boyington grabbed dinner with former co-worker Jillian Mele on Friday night at the Center City hot spot. The two former traffic gals from NBC10 had a lot of catching up to do now that Jessica has popped up as a general entertainment reporter at 6ABC. Jillian is now on Fox & Friends in NYC, on an early morning shift, so both noted in their social media posts how unusual it was for Jillian to be noshing on a Friday night. Last week 007 Pierce Brosnan was in town, well he flew into town, drove to Dickinson University to give the Commencement Speech then grabbed dinner at Estia Taverna in Radnor, before running into real estate celebrity to the stars – Melissa Leonard at PHL as they were both flying out.
Last night I spotted Harvey Welker, Julie Welker, a Fairmount real estate agent and most notably known as NBC News correspondent Kristen Welker ‘s parents at Capital Grille in Center City. Mike and I were there celebrating Stacy Kracher’s birthday, and the impending birth of her and Brandon Morrison’s baby due 7/20. Their sidewalk cafe is now open.
Guaranteed to put a smile on your face, a stop by Dilworth Park. The water park was packed yesterday with kids cooling off, parents chatting with friends, and folks just enjoying the day. Every day there’s something going on at the park, located on the west side of City Hall. Check their website for info.
Another great place to people watch, Fairmount Park. I caught this mama groundhog sunning on a sign. Nearby were her cute babies. It was adorable. I recently aquired a new lens 150mm to 600mm to further expand my bird watching captures. So it was fun to see this yesterday on my way to photograph the 13th Annual Independence Dragon Boat Regatta. Check out the photos here on CBS3Philly, as well as many other parties I photographed this week.
Have a great day!!
