Creed 2 Update, Biden Gives Good Face and Hello Riley Rado-Kaplan

Hello PhillyChitChat readers, what a week. We are in the middle of a very busy Social Season. On Sunday I will post links to where all the photos went in my various media outlets. In the meantime here’s a little Philly Chit Chat Gossip

Mother, Father and Riley are all doing well.  Grandparents are ecstatic!!

Speaking of chips off the old block, Sylvester Stallone welcomed daughter Sistine Stallone to Philly last week and gave her a tour of his old stomping grounds the Italian Market, as well as stop at the Rocky Statue to the delight of tourist. I suspect he’ll be stopping there again soon to film scenes. Tonight Creed 2 is filming at Eastern State Prison, as well as Rembrant’s nearby – it’s a Russian nightclub scene, look for the painted snow on the grass again.  Rocky won’t be nearby though, he’s off this week and part of next week – do expect to see Michael B Jordan and Tessa Thompson though.

Last night Creed 2 and Michael B Jordan filmed at Max’s Cheese Steak in North Philly. And by last night I mean all night long until this morning they were filming scenes inside and outside the famed spot. Kevin Hart may have made a cameo in the film as well since there’s a mural of his face on the front of the building at the 2nd floor level

Speaking of faces Joe Biden was in town on Tuesday night. The former Vice President  was honored at the Only In America Gala supporting the National Museum of American Jewish History at the Bellevue! At the event The Palm Philadelphia General Manager Julie Sloviter and former PREIT Executive Chairman Ron Rubin presented Joe Biden with his framed Palm caricature.

Guests also enjoyed music from Idina Menzel and students from the Girard Academic Music Program (GAMP).They sang her big hit “Let It Go” from the movie Frozen. She also sang Defying Gravity, from Wicked. Check back on Sunday for links to this event as well as the half dozen parties PhillyChitChat *the whole team, shot this week. Thanks, don’t forget your umbrella!! Best wishes HughE
