PhillyGossip: Meek Mill Eats Out, Nicki Minaj is On the Block, SATC’s Mr Big – Chris Noth Dines In – How Much Snow Are We Getting In Philly The Women of Weather Tell Us!

Good Day Gossip Day Thursday

If you are going to the Academy Ball and Concert on Saturday, #ItsAGoInTheSnow . Hope to see you. I did get a hotel room at the Double Tree so I didn’t have to trek through the snow home at midnight. Can’t even imagine the Uber Surge Pricing Saturday night.

Last night I was on my way to the Pen & Pencil Club for a showing of local news photographers work, and got a tip that Meek Mill and friends were eating at Serafina in the window. I got there just in time see Meek and the guys head out. No sign of Nicki Minaj, but a quick look on her instagram

and I see she’s all Jenny on the Block in Brooklyn on the set of her new TV show called Nicki based on her childhood and her neighborhood. It’s being directed by Tim Story.

Nicki has also added blond extensions to her hair. Looks good. Also new besides her extensions, Meek Mill’s new song just dropped. Check it out here

Star Power: Sex and the City’s Mr Big – Chris Noth stopped in Tredici Enoteca (114 South 13th St., ) earlier this month to try it out. I’ve been there, and it’s delicious.

 Bon voyage Randi Edelman, who after being with Saks Fifth Avenue in Bala Cynwyd, decided she needed a change and headed south for the winter, and maybe longer.
 OH MY Michael Strauss posted this shot of the latest dish at Taproom on 19th – It’s a grilled cheese and ham on a soft pretzel roll.

 Early this week Mike, Kory, Renee Patrone and I headed to dinner at our friend Michelle Leonard’s house on the Mainline. It was an early Mardis Gras dinner. It was delicious and the table setting was so much fun.

 Michelle is the hostess with the mostess (c) here with Renee Patrone, guest, Doreen Mcgettigan (who’s new book THE STRANGER IN MY RECLINER comes next Tuesday.), Karen Toole-Ebbert, Mike, moi and Kory took this pix.

 How much snow are we getting in Philly? 

 The women of weather in Philly tells us their predictions.
