Feastival , 2nd Time Around, Michelle Shannon and Diner en Blanc Best Pixs

Diner en Blanc is tomorrow, so I thought I’d post some of my favorite shots of the past 6 years. I haven’t posted my favorite events of the decade, cause I got lazy in the dog days of summer, but Diner en Blanc is in the top ten. I’ll post the list next week.  Hope everyone is having a great week. The Social Season will soon be picking up and I look forward to cover lots of fun events, festivals and fashionable fun.  Let’s see what on tap for #PCCBuzz today.


Last week the Feastival organizers got together to celebrate their upcoming foodtastic event with their partners and sponsors at Twenty Manning: Tony Forte & Ryan Hummel, Nick Stuccio, Michael Brairton, David Lipson, Joseph Friedberg,
M.D., Audrey Claire Taichman, Nicholas Elmi, Beka & Jesse Rendell. Tickets are on sale now for the annual event.

It’s not gonna happen a 2nd Time Around, as the clothing consignment store on Chestnut Street has closed. In fact the whole company has
gone out of business. It was a good run.



Speaking of fashion, our Fashion Plate of the Week is Michelle Shannon, Center City District Marketing Manager
Michelle is wearing a vintage dress knitted daisy dress from Jay West in Haddonfield, NJ. She picked up her cute shoes with flower a few years later. Michelle has undergone a transformation in the last year, taking up bicycling and heading to the gym.
This year she’s participating (with equally fit hubby Bruce Shannon) in the MS City to Shore Ride taking place September 23 and 24, 2017.

The First Diner en Blanc, when i met that guy Kory Aversa, who was just starting out. Or as Kory would tell you, when I actually would remember his name. Shortly after this we became fast friends.

Broad Street – It really was BS that any biz was hurt on a very slow Thursday night in the middle of Summer.
The organizers bought out two of the parking garages, and the City issues permits.
There are no parking signs affixed to the poles
and people are notified.
I believe some press even leaked the location the day before, which was a bummer for those of us who like the surprise of it.

The Philadelphia Art Museum location was spectacular.

I have no idea where it’s going to be tonight, but if I were to guess I would say Fairmount Park.
Let’s see if I’m right….
