The Orchestra’s Young Friends program began about five years ago as an effort to attract more young concertgoers. “We wanted to break down some perceived barriers to concertgoing,” Philadelphia Orchestra Vice President of Marketing Janice Hay says. “Before launching the program we talked to a number of young professionals and found out many of them didn’t know anything about The Philadelphia Orchestra. They weren’t willing to pay for something they weren’t familiar with. They had perceptions that concerts were always sold out, or not affordable. In addition, many people thought you had to dress up to go to a concert and felt the Kimmel Center might be an uptight scene. But it isn’t.”

Spooky
The Young Friends program was the result. With free membership and the ability to purchase up to two tickets at a reduced rate for most concerts, it brings together dynamic and successful professionals between the ages of 21 and 40 who have a love for music and an interest in exploring arts and culture.

Happy Halloween Week – Plus this weeks Links to Parties You Might Have Attended

Hey it’s Sunday, and rainy so let’s catch up on parties the Philly Chit Chat team photographed this week.

 

Happy

This year The Arthritis Foundation has launched the Bone Bash a Halloween Fundraiser for Arthritis across all their branches, but I’m sure no one had the perfect location to hold theirs as we did at our own bone museum, the Mütter Museum of The College of Physicians of Philadelphia

CBS Philly Bone Bash

The Bone Bash

After the Bone Bash last Friday night, I was enticed by the tunes I heard coming from the Barnes Museum, which is fairly close to my house. I remembered they were hosting their quarterly Young Friends event, this one was to celebrate the fifth anniversary of the museums new location.

It’s always a great time, and crowded with ticket prices at a reasonable $35  with a cash bar and snacks to buy. Mole Street Entertainment provides the music and their DJ and bands always pack the floor.

PhillyChitChat’s Mike Hirata will be shooting Timothy’s School Austic Fundraiser in the burbs and there are a lot of other fun parties happening tonight. This weekend I’ll be shooting 2 events Friday, 3 on Saturday, working all day Sunday, then 2 events on Monday. It’s all fun, and I love bringing it to you.

The Bourse Marketplace Retains It’s Charm as it Renovates It’s Food Hall

The Bourse Marketplace Retains It’s Charm as it Renovates It’s Food Hall

As the City moves forward, a few of our historic business are heading in the director of new and prettier too while keeping it’s historic charm. One of those places is the popular tourist spot -The Bourse, overlooking Independence Hall.

Charm(Common creative use)

The Philadelphia Bourse was a commodities exchange founded in 1891 by George E. Bartol, a grain and commodities exporter, who modeled it after the Bourse in Hamburg, Germany. The steel-framed building – one of the first to be constructed – was built from 1893 to 1895, and was designed by G. W. & W. D. Hewitt in the Beaux-Arts style.[1] Carlisle redstone, Pompeian buff brick and terra cotta were all used in the facade. The Bourse stopped functioning as a commodities exchange in the 1960s. The structure continued to serve as an office building until 1979 when the trading space adaptively reused the space a food court.


Fast forward to 2017 and the Bourse is undergoing another transformation – to the tune of $40 million, one which will continue as a hub for tourists in the Historic Philly area, as well as office workers and locals, but as a serious food and beverage hall with 27 new vendors.

Earlier this month a press conference was held to showcase the changes as well as introduce a few of the new tenants

Anney Thomas, Chaat and Chai

Chaat and Chai closed their South Philly storefront over the summer but the restaurant will reopen at The Bourse;   Bluebird Distilling plans to open a full service bar at The Bourse, currently at the Shops of Liberty Place they have a tasting room; Chef Sylva Senat of Maison 208 is opening Baby Buns, named for what his daughter calls sliders. Pasta makers Vera Pasta plan to serve lunch option, they had samples at the press conference which were delicious.  Olive with a Twist, which sells olive oils, balsamic vinegars, jams, and other gourmet pantry items,


Whenever I’m down in Old City and just want to chill, the Bourse was always my go to spot. Plus I liked the various vendors and postcard shops. It was a great hideaway with minimum offers, and now it’s going to have a better selection of food and shops.

MRP Realty, in conjunction with Cana Development, will bring an array of artisanal vendors, as
well as established Philadelphia businesses, to Old City’s The Bourse, one of the city’s most
iconic buildings. Upon opening, The Bourse Marketplace will offer visitors and locals 27 high-
quality businesses under one roof, in addition to four anchor tenants in the building’s four
corners.

That Meatball Contest Controversy, and Pixs & Links to Party Pics This Week

Hello gorgeous Sunday. GET OUT, really today is probably the last really nice weekend day of summer before Wednesday’s cold front comes through. The Social Season is winding down; PhillyChitChat was out and about shooting a lot of fun events which happened this week. If I photographed you towards the end of the week, your link will be here next Sunday or follow me on Social Media and find the link there. Let’s check out a few photos, followed by a link to additional photos.

SUNDAY: Taproom on 19th Meatball and Gravy Contest, not so much gravy judging though. Good thing cause one contestant told me she dropped her gravy slow cooker on the way to setting up

Meatball

The judges in the Meatball Gravy Contest

Charles Roxland‘s meatballs came in 2nd


Winner Jena Leigh Lucas won with her tradition pork, veal & beef, gluten free bread crumbs. She told me the recipe was from her mom who got it from her Nonna, and each women added their own ingredients to make it special. Originally it was a DEAD HEAT between the first and second winner, but I told the judges of her sweet story, and about the cute apron she wears while cooking. The apron was created by her Nonna when she was a little girl.

South Philly’s Jennifer “Fear” Zavala , and her son at the Taproom on 19th Meatball Contest last week. Jennifer created a delicious chick pea meatball, which wreaked havoc with the old school meatball lovers of South Philly. Some people went as far as to assume Jen’s meatball won the contest and began blowing up the internet. I guess all gals with tattoos look alike?  Mary Sellers was MAD AND LET US ALL KNOW ABOUT IT ON HER ZAGAT REVIEW

Wrestling

Monday night I attended another in a series of author/panel conversations of the Arts + Business Council of Philadelphia. This one was Turning Big Orgs into Lean Startups with Eric Ries + Adam GrantWrestlingIt was held Monday night at the Prince Theater, and was well attended. Usually they’re held during the morning hours before people head to work. I think A+B might now consider mixing them up holding them both in the morning and in the evening. The ticket price is always reasonable, usually about $35 to attend, and the event is between 2 and 3 hours long. There is a higher VIP price, which includes a meet & greet with the author, receiving a book and getting it signed.

Capital Grille Goes Al Fresco, Glass Update, Epic Window box

Capital Grille Goes Al Fresco, Glass Movie, Epic Window Box

Friday, yeah. After a super busy week I just have one event tonight, a wedding tomorrow and then it’s back to 2 events a day for a week or so….Let’s ChitChat

window

I attended the Union League’s Women’s Committee Fashion Show chaired by Lynsie Solomon at noon Thursday. It was fantastic and those photos will pop up somewhere soon. On my way over I spied Capital Grille happenings. I tweeted that it looked like Capital Grille was finally joining the al fresco club. By the looks of things I though this isn’t a good idea, that corner is a hot mess. (not Wawa hot mess, but close)

window

But hours later when I walked passed I thought this could work. The tables are fairly separated from prying eyes and solicitors. I spoke with a few Capital Grille peeps who told me they are going to experiment with al fresco, then when it gets colder put it away until the spring when they will celebrate the debut in grand style. It’s about time, the sidewalks are fairly broad there, it’s not like 18th Street or Walnut St where it’s tough to share, especially with the placards and street side tables.
Speaking of steak, I headed to Chima last night to check out their newly renovated eatery at the corner of 20th and JFK. It’s fantastic; it’s bright, clean and the food is as delicious as ever. The COO tells me that they might be bringing back their ever popular lunch again now that the renovations is over. Hey Alex Tewfik, Foobooz and my date for the night Thanju Hamilton. Also dining with us the infamous Le from Hopsing. Always great to see him.

After Chima and on my way to the Suzanne Roberts Theater to photograph the Philadelphia Theatre Company’s Wrestling Jerusalem – October 18 – November 5, 2017 I checked out this window box garden I saw being built earlier this week.

Shazam it’s amazing. It’s on the 1600 block of Spruce Street if you want to check it out. The glass bowl has actual live fish in it. Hope we don’t get a frost too soon.

Congrats!!
James McAvoy and his lady love Lisa Liberti were shopping over the weekend at Green Aisle Grocery.  Bruce Willis spent a few happy hours at Scarpetta, seems nobody bothers him.

Art Museum Target is Now Open Here’s A Preview

Art Museum Target is Now Open Here’s A Preview

A few weeks ago I stopped by the new Target located at 20th and Callowhill and chatted with the manager. She invited me to the soft opening, which occurred last night, but I was already booked. I swung by just before closing and took a few photos. During my chat with her I complained about the quality of merchandise at the Target’s that had already opened in Center City. The clothing was not the same high quality that you would find at a full size Target, and the stores didn’t sell picture frames. She assured me that this Target was more on target with the stores you’d find in the burbs, rather than the downtown smaller stores. Let’s see if she’s right.

Target
The entrance and exit is on the left. The doors in the center, that’s the Fire Exit.

Target
There was a nice size clothing section for men, women and children. I couldn’t find my size which is xxxl, which they carry in a real Target. They have dressing rooms which is great.

Target

Prices were  very reasonable starting at $7 for a graphic shirt to $29 for an outfit,

The mini Target is in the old Whole Foods Market location 2001 Pennsylvania Ave. Wednesday morning and has about 30ks feet of shopping space. A full size target like the one on City Ave is about 130,ooo feet. The ones in Center City are less than 30ks feet. Target

I love that they have Target Mobile and Order Pickup, the service that allows shoppers to order items online and retrieve them in-store.
Target
They have an electronics department, which is great for the neighborhood.

Target

Conveniently there’s a CVS Pharmacy inside of Target. If you want the full CVS experience go a block over to the Whole Foods complex and visit CVS there. They have a magazine rack which I didn’t see at Target. I did see a small shelf of books.

Target
Target is a great mini grocery store.

Target
Hurry they forgot to add the soda tax an associate told me. They plan to do it today or tomorrow. Target
I buy soup, this is a good dealTarget
I buy this at Wegman’s, this is a good deal. TargetAvacado’s were on sale, 4 for $4Target Target
About a $.50 cheaper than Whole FoodsTarget
They sell milk & eggs as well. Plus cereal, pasta, just about anything you can think of that is convenient grocery shopping. There’s not a butcher or a lunch meat counter.TargetA  little less expensive than Whole Foods

Target

Please do not by this bag, unless you live in a no pet building and you want to pet something
Yeah picture frames, but what heck on the left
If you want Starbucks while shopping, this kiosk is perfect, otherwise go across the street for the full experience which includes sitting and more lemon bar choices Target

There are a few full service check out countersTargetBut more self service check out counters

Target
$5.99 for that huge pumpkin is a bargain.

Target Art Museum is a convenient store for the value shopper, and a welcomed addition to the neighborhood for a quick gift pick up and better grocery selection than the Wawa a block away, but it’s not for the fashion conscious wearing consumer.

Free parking to boot.
The hours are great too Weekdays 7am to 10PM
Saturday 7am to 11PM
Sundays 8am to 10PM

Check out Suzette Parmley’s column in Philly.com for a more in depth business discussion on the new Target, and future Target’s coming to Philly.
