ZAHAV’S ANNUAL “DOWN THE SHORE” PARTY WITH A ZOMBIE LUAU – Pixs

On Tuesday, July 3, Chef Michael Solomonov hosted the Down the Shore 3: Zombie Luau at Zahav (237 St. James Place, 215-625-8800). 
This fun annual tradition featured dishes from Solomonov and eight
other top Philly chefs.


 The party served all you-can-eat-and-drink, plus entertainment
including live music (The Bath Salts I think they said,) a photo booth, zombie face painting and of course,
over-the-top costumes. Greeters Amy Henderson and Lindsie set the tone as they greeted guests at the door.

Matt Bean, Jackie Seigle – JackiBakesCake.com (Philadelphia girl. Phillies fan. Marathon runner. Lover of food and
beer. Maker/decorator of cupcakes and cakes. Entrepreneur. Day job in
B2B media) and Brian Lim. They waited 3hrs in line to get their Zombie Make up on, but it was worth it.

Zombies? Feh! There’s a vampire loose in Texas 

Vampires not real? Try telling that to one Texas teen who got bitten on the neck by a stranger on the street.

Marija and Scott Turner. Years ago before I was PhillyChitChat.com, I created photo note cards and Marija worked in the store in the Bourse building that sold them. It was so nice to see her again, married and happy. Tomorrow is PhillyChitChat’s 5 year anniversary. WOW, fun, emotional for me. I think I did a good job promoting charities which was the bottom line of why I started doing the site, as well as satisfying my curiosity of people, places and things.  Thanks for your support, readership, links & guidance.- HughE
