The Sporting Club at the Bellevue celebrating it’s 21st Birthday

The Sporting Club at the Bellevue celebrating it’s 21st Birthday on Janurary 21, 2010. The party was a resounding success with well dressed peeps, mostly members of the Club and the well healed of Philadelphia rubbing elbow to elbow, especially in the hallway where the food lay in wait. There were several bars in the narrow hallway, and a strategically placed one in center court on the basket ball court. It was my understanding that this was the first time they held a party in this room, I felt guilty walking on the floor and suggested to a few people that maybe we should remove our shoes. They assured me the floor would be fine. The Sporting Club is part of The Bellevue complex which includes the Park Hyatt Philadelphia, restaurants XIX and The Palm, and exclusive shops such as Tiffany & Co.,

Nicole Miller, Williams-Sonoma, Origins and Teuscher Chocolates as well as offices for the Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce, Tierney Company and Pennsylvania Realty Investment Trust. It’s a great place to work out, dine, shop and stay right in the heart of Philadelphia’s downtown.

I hear he will moving his operations down there and running both magazines from that office, but he’s not disappearing for good as he will be here two or three times a week; with Sabrina Tamburino Thorne who’s jetting down to Jamaica this weekend for a destination wedding.

Keeping guard of the VIP Room are Amy Stratton Asst. GM and Clif Johnson, boxing coach.
Melinda on Yelp says: This is the Ritz of the Philadelphia gyms. Basketball court, pool, squash, a boxing area, ballet room, several group fitness rooms, a yoga studio, an indoor track, a large workout floor with state-of-the-art machines, a fleet of treadmills, each with their own television.

Cheers to The Sporting Club’s 21 Years and to the next 21 Years of keeping folks fit.I later headed down to the PAWS Fashion Show & Fundraiser at Trust. That even as you will recall was also nicely attended. BUT seriously folks, please don’t keep your parties a secret from me or my PhillyChitChat calendar. Can’t we all get along and post these events in a more timely fashion by sending me your press release 6 months in advance. That way if someone wants to have a party on your date, they can check the calendar for a conflict. The Calendar is for the most part is only for charity events, large gatherings of Philly peeps & celeb attending shin digs.
