#PCCBuzz Cescaphe Heads to Broad St, Eagles & Tasty Talk

Good Monday morning, it’s time for the #PCCBuzz lots happened this weekend and congrats are in order for a few of our Philadelphia Eagles players, but first we know what’s going in on the corner of Broad & Locust Streets at CAMBRiA hotel & suites Philadelphia ( 219 S. Broad St.)

Tasty Talks

Joining DelFrisco’s Grille  as part of the new Cambria hotel on Broad Street, will be another fabulous Cescaphe event space. No name has been picked out yet for the new space which takes over where the eateries Perch Pub and Varelli’s were located, but I’m sure it will be another fabulous name like other Cescaphe’s other spaces Tendenza, Vie, The Water Works and Cescaphe Event Space.  Philly Mag has a great article on founder Joe Volpe 

The flagship Cambria Hotel will open at Broad and Locust in late March and will feature Attico, the largest roof-top restaurant/bar on the Avenue of the Arts.

The 15-story, 223-room boutique hotel was developed by Pearl Properties and designed by DAS Architects, the City’s foremost hospitality architect. The ground floor of the hotel will be home to a new Del Frisco’s Grille, set to open in October 2018. Look for the new Cescaphe event space to also open in the Fall.


Congrats to Rodney McLeod and Erica Lee on their engagement. He popped the question on 5th Avenue in in front of St. Patrick’s Cathedral in NYC Friday evening. According to Yahoo news: The Philadelphia Eagles safety Rodney McLeod — who just won his first Super Bowl Championship earlier this month — asked his longtime girlfriend, Erika Lee, to be his wife. Now, they’re both sporting important rings. Head on over to Yahoo for lots of great details on the engagement. Earlier this month, Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz proposed to his girlfriend Maddie.
Jason Kelce had a busy weekend, Saturday he stopped by the Reading Terminal’s 135th Anniversary party and even brought The Eagles Super Bowl Belt. Sunday he headed to 5th Annual Mummers Mardi Gras Parade Sunday in Manayunk. Check out Philly.com for the full story.
On Wednesday I’m speaking at Tasty Talk at one of my favorite Chinese restaurants YangMing. It’s only 20 for lunch and $5 of that goes to the Cancer Support Community of Greater Philadelphia. Buy your tickets online or at the door. I’ll be chatting about how I started PhillyChitChat and the importance of supporting charities.

Plus I’ll be chatting about my years of being a paparazzi in NYC. I have lots of stories of those fun times.
