PHILADELPHIA FILM FESTIVAL 2009 OPENING NIGHT PARTY
THE MOST IMPORTANT THING YOU CAN DO TODAY IS TO GIVE MONEY TO THE POLICE ATHLETIC LEAGUE WHO WILL BE HANGING OUT IN YOUR OFFICE TOWERS LOBBY TO RAISE MONEY TO HELP KIDS
Thursday night kicked off the 2009 Philadelphia Film Festival or Phila Cinefest at the Park Hyatt. The party took over the entire 19th Floor. I wish I could say I went to the party, but I ran into friends that I never take the time to hang out with and instead had dinner at 10 ARTS, but that’s another night. TRY THE TROUT hmm hmmm good.
OK guys, the stylish and sophisticated trail blazing Joey Sweeney and his beautiful partner in life and work Ruth Carpenter of http://www.philebrity.com/. Check out her new ‘do, I LOVE IT. Dare I say the hipsters are taking it to the next level.

Carol was telling me how she just had dinner with Connie Stevens (Sabrina’s Godmother) at Del Frisco’s and then I was saying I don’t want to see this picture why didn’t you call me as I was across the street at 10 Arts having dinner and i would have popped over. I can’t complain that people I don’t know forget to tip me off when people I know and care about forget to tip me off to photo ops.
