PHILLY AUTO SHOW BLACK TIE TAIL GATE PARTY Pixs & Info

This is one of my favorite annual parties, which is the kick off party for the Philadelphia Auto Show on 1/28/11. “Join the Auto Dealers CARing for Kids Foundation for the debut of the Philadelphia Auto Show on Friday, January 28, 2011. Dine and dance among the finest automobiles in the world at Black Tie Tailgate, a 500,000 square foot display floor located throughout the Pennsylvania Convention Center where you can get an inside view of everything that the 2011 Philadelphia Auto Show has to offer.” Mike and I go every year, me to shoot the fashionable among the fast and fashionable new cars, and Mike likes to go and check out the cars as well as tell me which gadgets are the latest and greatest. Last week Starr Catering, who does the food for the party, provided the food for the sponsor party, which is also a tasting party so the sponsors and hosts can sample some of the delicious items that will be served the night of the Black Tie Party. The event was held at Tangerine.

Here’s my entry from PhillyChitChat.com of last year’s Black Tie Tail Gate Party event. If there’s one event you want to attend this year that’s unique, this will appeal to to both of you and it’s for a good cause. Make sure you stop me for a photo so that you can appear on this year’s entry.
