ARTHUR KADE has something to say, and so do I

As most of you know I have had a few “It Girls” over the past 18 months, and never really mentioned an “IT Guy” but that would be model/actor/friend to many Arthur Kadyshe. AK has made some waves lately, first quitting his comfortable six figure job, to follow his dream of acting in NYC. A bit crazy no doubt in this depressing economy, but his clock is ticking and he’s one brave soul to chase his dream, and guess what he takes us along in his new blog ; to me it reads like a Jacqueline Sussan novel.(another Philadelphian who followed her dream to NYC; did you know her father was a portrait painter and did at least 4 of the Mayor’s portraits that are currently hanging in City Hall) So relax, suspend your reality and check out ArthurKade Here are a few things that might interest you in Philly lately: Philadelphia. Man-about-town Thom Cardwell will launch “Thom’s Guides” in The Legal Intelligencer (TLI), appearing every Thursday, beginning 3/5/09. He’ll rotate the focus of the guides, in a three-week cycle, on food, restaurants & chefs; arts & entertainment; and travel & leisure. CHARITY Events to Attend: Have I mentioned the PhillyChitChat conflict calendar I am trying to create (click on calendar up there on the right hand side of header) Both of these events are on Saturday Night: The National Kidney Foundation Delaware Valley Hosts the 25th Annual Kidney Ball on March 7 at the Park Hyatt to Commence Kidney Month.

Had dinner at Morton’s tonight. I asked someone point blank what’s the story as the rumor is your closing. The guy assured me that Morton’s Philadelphia is not closing, but there are big plans in the work. So stay tuned. Have you ever read, well you should it’s delicious.
One last thing, I can’t believe that it’s this time again:
DAY LIGHT SAVING TIME THIS SATURDAY. Change your clocks, change the batteries in your smoke detector and C02 alarms.
