Good Thursday morning, and the first day of SEPTEMBER. Say what? AND IT”S RAINING. Well let’s enjoy a little gossip and tidbits from around Philadelphia.

Flyers

Last night before tonight’s big game, Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB for the Jets stopped by Del Frisco’s for dinner. On his way in he stopped to take a photo with Andy Farrell’s (Managing Partner- City Tap House) son.

Yesterday the Flyers revealed their 2016/17 uniforms to the City, adding gold to the orange and black shirts, as the Flyers team celebrates their 50th Anniversary. GET IT: Gold is the suggested gift to give to people celebrating their 50th Wedding Anniversary Gift. Flyers captain Claude Giroux models a new Flyers jersey commemorating the team’s 50th anniversary at One Liberty Observation Deck. The letter C, his number and a commentator patch on his shoulder are all gold.  With him is Evan Evans, the GM of One Liberty Observation Deck, which is located at 1650 Market Street, Liberty One Building.

Also new in Philadelphia, the Mormon Temple. Yesterday life style blogger Taza, drove down from NYC to visit the marble wonder. There’s only a few more days left where you can tour the Temple yourself, cause once they have their blessing ceremony it’ll only be open for members of the Church of Latter Day Saints. It’s pretty marvelous. Did you know they don’t really worship in the Temple, it’s more like a community center for teachings, blessings of weddings and baptisms. Across the street from the Temple is their chapel. Next week I have a fun blog post about the Mormon Temple campus.

Speaking of Temples, I noticed that the Art Museum has started the construction on the new addition, which will be built underground.

This is the one where they are planning to cut out the “Rocky Steps” so the cavernous new rooms will have a view of the City.

Plus they are putting a glass dome on top of where the fountain currently is located at the top of the steps.
