Rittenhouse Row Spring Festival IS THIS SATURDAY 5/9/09

Last night I attended the Rittenhouse Row Spring Festival Kick Off Reception held this year at the Four Seasons. The festivities began at 6 p.m. and the evening featured the musical stylings of DJ Joey Blanco, a silent auction, door prizes, food samplings by some of the most popular eateries in the Rittenhouse area and
a wine bar from PLCB Chairman’s Selections, cocktail creations from Diageo, and Infinitini’s in where else but the Intiniti Louge. This even is the cornerstone to raising the funds for The Rittenhouse Row Spring Festival which will take place THIS Saturday, May 9th from noon to 5p.m., rain or shine.
One of the best commercial photographer in Philadelphia, Christopher Gabello, another favorite Where Publisher Laura Burkhardt and aspiring photographer and Ukele player Chris Fireoved. Stop by Loftus Cafe for a coffee or peanut butter sandwich and say hi.
Ann Ternas and of The Latest Dish Dallyn Pavey,
Jill Rizen and her man Andrew Hennig. I don’t think I have ever photographed Jill in the same outfit, wish I could say the same thing for a person that favors the color purple too much. Is that snarky?
The Infiniti Girls in the Infiniti lounge. They had a coffee table that had a LCD in it, good for display or meetings, not so good for watching Jerry Springer, like I am because I am too lazy to grab the remote and change the channel, as you will be hitting the table top/screen over the dumb actors, er I mean people who make bad choices. Jamie Wenger, Maureen Kolodzieg, Don Rosen and Melissa Bizzak

Erin Elmore and Janice Lim self portrait. Why do people stick out their tongues when they take photos of themselves? I’m having breakfast with Erin at 10AM, so I will ask her.Along Walnut Street from Broad to 19th Streets will be closed to traffic, giving you a pedestrian and stroller-friendly experience. Popular Center City restaurants will bring their most delectable dishes onto the street, so families can sample gastronomic delights without dropping a lot of cash. Just make sure to arrive early to enjoy all the offerings before they sell out! Besides the food, enjoy multiple stages of live music, all-day fashion shows, and loads of family fun like parachute games, storytellers, face painting and children’s dance DJs. (I was good I only took a picture of the cake)Ok you two knock it off. Actually these two are so cute who wouldn’t want to photograph them, alot. Talk about bringing sexy back, Jill!
Elina Safin and Eric Safin. I met Elina earlier this month at an event I didn’t write about yet, see how bad this is when I get behind. You may ask yourself why is HughE writing this before those other events, well this one is time sensitive as the Rittenhouse Row Festival is THIS Saturday, remember that. It’s going to be 73F, Sunny and beautiful. My mom says maybe she’ll go with me. I’ve never gone as I am usually in NYC shooting celebs during this week. Last night I wrote about make-up artist Ursula Augustine 215-557-1562 Ursula’s About Phace, well Elina is the masseuse at About Phace, and she works miracles. give her a call, and visit About Phace. At tonight’s event Ursula did the make-up for the models from JS Models.
