Stallone has been in town a few weeks now as he is working on the movie Creed. Creed will tell the story of Apollo Creed’s grandson (played by
Michael B Jordan), who decides to follow in his grandfather’s footsteps and
become a professional boxer. At first he was prepping for the movie Creed at Dive in Old City. Now the movie has started to film. In the evening Stallone has been making the rounds to some of Philly’s most delicious dining spots.
He’s gone to Estia,
He’s gone to D’Angelo’s in Rittenhouse Square.
He’s even gone to the top of the Rocky stairs where these lucky tourists caught up with him.
. Andre S.O.G. Ward Two-time Super Middleweight World Champion, 2004 Olympic Gold Medalist has been tapped to be in the movie.
Fans are always writing me, where can I find him. For the past two days Creed has been filming in West Philly. Then I hear it’s back to the Boxing Studio for him. It seems that he’s not in any of the scenes being filmed yet, but he is a producer of the movie, and that’s why he’s on set, and why he could fly to France last week to film a commercial for a bread that he is an official spokesperson for.
To Meet Sly Stallone I would just stake out the film set at the boxing studio, or any one of the Italian restaurants in the City. I think he’ll go to Ralph’s next. Thoughts? Follow @Iphillychitchat for the latest news. Also read Molly Eichel’s column for an awesome story in today’s paper about Sly stopping by to see his boyhood home. That was cool.
There’s also a contest for those who make reservations beforehand.

BLIZZARD OF 2015, never happened and I didn’t get any SNOW PHOTOS. So I reached back two years in my archives and decided to post a few of my favorite shots. Hope you enjoy them. I have two columns that should post today on Philly Mag, Indochino and The Marc Vetri Cocktail Party. I’ll tweet them out when they go live. Thanks. HughE
I basically bum-rushed the elevator, he’s
surrounded by security who (of course) immediately want me removed. Al
told them to relax. I said “Al, I’m not into selfies, I’d rather have a
real photo” threw his one (large) security guy my phone. Al’s quote “I
agree about selfies, they breed vanity.” What a guy. Unforgettable! – Peter Madden, Agile Cat
Saturday night was the Academy Ball, an event I used to read about in Ruth Seltzer’s Society Column in the Philadelphia Inquirer when I was growing up. I was that kid that read the society pages, and for someone that had an aversion to a suit and tie, I was fascinated by the white tie idea.
Fast forward to adulthood and here I am, not only do I get to cover it, but I get to go to it and take a “date”. Mike never wants to go, he’s fascinated like I am. Last year I took Ian Crumm, this year I went with everyone’s BFF
Before the concert there is the Chairman’s Pre-Concert Reception, which is a great place for the society photographers to get their shots. I went in with the mind set I need 20 amazing, unique shots for my column in Philadelphia Magazine. Another periodical I read growing up, checking out the photos and now calling my own. You don’t know how humbling, and amazing it is to have that responsibility and I take it seriously. (At the same time I think OMG I was a paralegal, I planned to always be one, how did I get here?)
This year they did something really creative and added entertainment as ball guests made their way from the Academy of Music to the Bellevue:
8:30 PM–9:15 PM: Promenade to the Bellevue! Ball at the Bellevue!
Featuring the Delaware County Christian Academy Choir (2013 More 101 FM Choir competition winners!) (above)

Good Thursday Morning. I have compiled a few photos I have tweeted or instagramed, and some that have never seen the light of day. I’m dropping some news here, as well as featuring some of my favorite meals of the week. Have a safe, warm day. HughE
The sign says they will be adding another location in West Philly, and exploring a possibility of another location in Center City. They still have other locations in West Philly for you to enjoy.
Did you know if you took a photo of your coat check ticket, you can get your coat. I do this because I always misplace mine. I wish I could do it for my parking ticket.
Oh look, the Cheesecake Factory at 15th and Walnut is coming a long very nicely. I see Windex doing a good business here.
