Just a bunch of thoughts, info and pictures in this entry:Tourist please sit down.and wear shoes too. This is Philly not the beach. I’m saying this for your own good.
Speaking about the beach, Audrina Patridge and her BMX biker boyfriend Corey Bohan seem to have things back on track. Saturday night they partied partied at Harrah’s Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey with party promoter Mike Fazio, of Fazio Producations. This Friday check out his fashion show with Aci Nae (South Philly) which will be held at the pool at Harrahs

Yesterday I was in Rittenhouse Square. Lately it’s been looking more like Haight Ashbury. I thought it was announced at the Ball this year there would be a park ranger about.
Phillies Financial Day with Shane Victorino, Cole Hamels, Jimmy Rollins and Chase Utley was hugely successful. Next up for these folks is the Ryan Howard Celebrity Server night at Morton’s on July 21, 2011 (Same night as PhillyChitChat’s 4th Anniversary Party at Opa. 1hr open bar, food & me. Please send me your email the first 50 people I will put on the invite list. Subject 4th Anniversary.) Also 8/11/11 is the Hamels Foundation Diamond and Denin Gala. (Seriously it’s almost sold out. I think this year is going to be spectacular. G-N Kang has been working tirelessly to create a night of memories.)
Sherry Tickets is leaving Philadelphia after 65 years. You can still order tickets online or over the phone from them. Or visit them at their Wilmington Store.
Here’s a shot Inside Edition sent me (They do that randomly). Perez Hilton says: Over the weekend, Nadya “Octo-Mom” Suleman and her brood of 2-year-olds flew from New York City to Los Angeles. For those of you who don’t know, that’s a 6+ hours flight, which would drive a parent with one child absolutely insane, let alone eight. So there Nadya is, with eight kids in business class, all of them screaming their heads off. The flight has ben delayed two hours and this woman just can NOT quiet her children. The wails and screams of her children started to disrupt the other passengers, including 3rd Rock from the Sun star Kristen Johnston. After enduring the children for an hour or so, she marched over to the Octo-mom and demanded she keep her kids in check. Octo scream what would you do, which Kristen responded, get more help.Hmm calamari & pizza at Serafina at Rittenhouse. It was good. The restaurant was PACKED. I’m a little deaf now though, but with all that delicious food there was a lot to say. I can’t wait for cooler weather to have the windows open. Lots of good people peeping: Bethann Platt, Kate Wilhelm, Mark Focht and the lovely hostess Courtney Grant were in the house.After dinner Maria Papadakis and I took a stroll along Rittenhouse Row and ran into a whole bunch of people. Tim Lucey, Erin Elmore (On the eve of her trip to Croatia), Nina Tinari (Just got back from Aspen), Sabrina Tamburino-Thorne (Is somewhere different every weekend), Michael Schulson, Aly Green, and Maria. See everyone Thursday at Philadelphia Style Magazine’s Hot List Party.
