Ben Stango with Rachel Hodas. Most possibly our mayor one day. One thing I know for sure, he’s interested in the commonwealth of Pa., and is one of the good guys.
Theater Confetti had one of the most innovated, interesting and creative parties this year. The event was Co–artistic directors of Theatre Confetti Bi Jean Ngo and Nicole Paloux (r) who tapped Creme Design to create the atmosphere which filled the room with balloons and streamers. There was also a lot of tantalizing tastes and entertainment. Check out the night here.
It was a Great Gatsby year. One of the first parties of the year with that theme was Amber Goins birthday party, here with then fiance, now husband Pedro Gomes. The party was held in one of the ballrooms at Hotel Monaco.
Amber Goins and Pedro Gomes. I couldn’t make it to their wedding, it was my mom’s 70th bday.
Thanks Replica. They do all my printing and had my first photo exhibit, back in February. All my girls were there.

On Sunday night, after the 1983 Sixers were honored at the Wells Fargo in a celebration of their championship season, Julius “Dr. J” Erving
was honored by his family at a private party held at the Stratus Lounge
at Hotel Monaco Philadelphia. Family and friends flew in from around
the country to celebrate this special night. Pictured: Moses Malone, Stedman Graham, Dr. J, Reggie Johnson, and Clemon Johnson.
The Johnson brothers were excited to be back in Philly and feel the
love of the great Philadelphia fans. The first thing they did when they
got to town was to run to the Reading Terminal to eat a cheesesteak.
