WaWa WHAT, Rumor on Next Spot, Chadwick Wins Super Bowl Ball, Save The Date

Rumored Spot for Wawa, Chadwick Wins Super Bowl Ball, Save The Date

Wawa

Rush hour on the Schuylkill this morning. Sorry I’ve missed a few days on the ChitChat, so many events happening. When clients hire me to shoot their parties I try and place them in the media, and shooting day and night leaves little time for me do a blog post. I I’m going to try hard to have 6 entries in a row starting with Sunday 17 Bridges Update, and then featuring many of the parties I just shot, but focusing on their decor, which is fabulous.

Let’s check out HughE On The Town
Wawa
OK I heard this rumor a few weeks ago, and haven’t had a chance to write about it. Wawa is looking to open
is this long empty space at 33-37 South 16th Street. I think the last occupant was a Sprint phone store.
It’s right next to Steve’s Prince of Cheesesteaks and across from Liberty Two, which is my next story.
Here’s the listing
Liberty Two updated their facade highlighting the entrance to R2L, The Residences and the office tower.
It’s lit at night as well. Very nice.
I see Del Frisco’s Grille’s sign has been installed. They’re looking to open in November, around the same time as
Cescaphe’s new even space The Lucy, located next door at Broad & Locust Streets, both part of the
Cambria Hotel.  I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention the passing of Neil Stein, my neighbor, and someone I admired a great deal. He
is the Father of Philly’s restaurant Renaissance. Mike Klein has a nice write up of him here.

Celebs in Philly Out and About:

Jake Elliott, kicker for the Eagles, dined with his girlfriend at Davio’s Philadelphia earlier this week. They both enjoyed the oysters as and other raw bar options, a spokesperson said.

Chadwick Boseman, in town filming 17Bridges movie stopped by a Malcom Jenkin’s fundraiser last Saturday night and had the winning bid on one of only 7 in existence Super Bowl Footballs signed by the entire team. No word on how much that set him back.

As part of Sonesta Philadelphia’s month-long Breast Cancer Awareness programming, Sonesta Philadelphia has commissioned 10 fashion figure sketches by Denise Fike that have gone up for auction today – all auction proceeds to benefit local non-profit Living Beyond Breast Cancer.

Each Denise Fike piece is inspired by the famed designs of Christian Dior, many of which are currently on display at the Philadelphia Museum of Art’s newest exhibit: “Fabulous Fashion: From Dior’s New Look to Now.” Looks include –

  • Christian Dior’s 1970 Mrac Bohan Collection
  • Christian Dior’s 2004 Pret-a-Porter Collection based on Vintage Vogue Covers
  • Christian Dior’s Fall 2010 Couture Collection
  • Christian Dior’s Fall 1997 Couture Collection
  • Christian Dior’s Fall 2005 Couture Collection
  • Christian Dior’s 2008 Pret-a-Porter Collection
  • Christian Dior’s Spring 2007 Couture Collection
  • Christian Dior’s Spring 2011 Couture Collection
  • Christian Dior’s Fall 2010 Haute Couture Collection

These 18” x 6” figures are the perfect décor for a fashionistas home! The website to bid is www.BiddingOwl.com/LBBC, and Denise’s work is starting at $100/figure. The auction will end on 10/31 at 10:00 pm.


Where are you going to watch the Eagles on Sunday. PJ Clarke’s is starting brunch that day, so that’s one choice.
Check out Philly Voice for a few more spots. 

In honor of National Adoption Month in November, our agency will be hosting the 2nd Annual Share Your Heart Benefit Concert at Manayunk Brewing Company. On Thursday November 8, 2018 from 7-11pm, concertgoers can come join us for a night of great performances from two local alternative bands, The Barker Brothers and haha charade. All proceeds from the concert will go to Adoptions From The Heart’s Birth Parent Scholarship Fund. This fund has provided a total of 17 birth parents with financial assistance to attend either a four-year college or vocational school since its inception in 2014 . AFTH’s recent Birth Parent Scholarship winner is Felix Benyoussef, who started school this fall to pursue a nursing degree. Tickets for the concert are $20 per person, and can be purchased on AFTH’s 2nd Annual Share Your Heart Benefit Concert .

17 Bridges filming in Philadelphia- What I Know So Far – Spoiler Alert

17 Bridges filming in Philadelphia- What I Know So Far – Spoiler Alert
And Links to Party I Photographed this Week at bottom of page

17 Bridges filming began in Philly in September.

It stars Chadwick Boseman (Black Panther), Sienna Miller, J.K. Simmons (Flashpoint), Keith David (Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles series) and  Taylor Kitsch (He played sinister leader David Koresh in WACO last year, but he’s mostly know as the heartthrob from Friday Night Lights)

17 Bridges follows Boseman, who’s a NYPD detective, on a citywide manhunt for a cop killer. When the search intensifies, extreme measures are taken to prevent the killers from escaping Manhattan as the authorities close all 17 bridges to prevent any entry or exit
from the iconic island. (Who knew there were 17 bridges, I can only think of 5). Filming in Philly has taken place in the Loft District, Old City, and Chinatown (photo above)
This past week, and all of next week they will be filming around 20th and Sansom Street, on 20th Street all the way up to Market Street. In the movie this intersection is known as3rd St and Havenmayer which is in Brooklyn, NY


The facades of some of our favorite eateries have been altered for the set like Whiskey Bar, Shake Shack. Business hasn’t been affected as much as you think because they are still open everyday until around 10PM when they would normally close. Then the movie magic happens. Check out these photos of the Open and Closed shots. BTW Tinto is not open as they have altered the inside for the movie and they do pay then extra for being closed for 3 weeks of filming.
All of the filming is taken place at night. Spoiler Alert the movie is set in one 24hr period, and mostly at night.

See windows uncovered, Shake Shack is open for business


On set last week was David Keith, Taylor Kitsch, who are having dinner at Mosto, or as we like to call it TINTO in Philly. I spoke to someone connected to the restaurant and they said the producers were considering to keep the name the same except theres a coffee shop in NYC called Tinto’s and they didn’t want to confuse anyone.

Next week nearly the entire cast will be filming, along with about 200 extras as there will be many different scenes regarding the chase through Manhattan, with fake gunfire, explosions and even helicopters above. Notices have gone out
to people who live in the area, so no one thinks it’s the real thing.

This past week they did have a minor police chase, with gunfire. They also filmed for several nights inside the MOSTO, and in the ally next to the eatery. Note the police car has crashed into the “suspects” car on the right coming out of the alley.


Yes Philly is stepping in to act as NYC again. Next to questions about Taylor Kitsch’s whereabouts, this is the next most asked question, why? We should all be embracing that a major production wants to film here in Philly, we know this is often the case from many TV shows and films, where they are filmed elsewhere than where they depict, so many productions head north to Canada. The Greater Philadelphia Film Office, along with the Pittsburgh Film Office and The Pennsylvania Film Industry Association (PaFIA) work hard to get maintain a decent tax credit for film and TV Productions that spend at least 60% of their total budget within the state. AND We still benefit, not only do we get to showcase our beautiful City, but so many Philadelphian’s are employed by the productions, plus actors, and people connected with the film are housed here, they eat in our restaurants, the buy goods and merchandise here and even the gas used in the vehicles that transport the cast & crew, all the way down to the cars that are involved in the police chases, is bought in Philadelphia. That’s a big boost to our local economy when a film is shot in Philly or #phillywood as I like to call it.
Speaking of dining: Chadwick Boseman had lunch at Estia on Wednesday night with 10 people for dinner, the Greek restaurant at 1405-07 Locust St, Philadelphia, PA (They provided this photo) Chadwick loved the octopus, spanakopita, estia chips, and his entrée was Whole Sea Bass. Posing here with Saki. Earlier in the week he was spotted at Harp & Crown having dinner with his dad.


Eating nearby was Dr. J and his family. As far as Estia could tell neither Dr J or Chadwick saw each other. Such a bummer.
Recently Chadwick Boseman was spotted at NOTO with DJ Hollywood and Dray Ali.

Last night Boseman hosted a party for cast and crew in Center City to mark the mid-point of shooting.
The film started September 24, and is scheduled to end around November 24.
Filming this week will again be overnight, so I’ll try and be there to give you the details so you can grab some sleep, but
remember if you hear gunfire, small explosions and helicopters above, it’s probably just this production and it’s helping our local economy.

Below are a few links to parties I photographed this week.

Photos: Boo at the Zoo Haunts Us For Another Year

I had a chance to cover something I’ve always heard was a fun time, and the critics were right….

 

Don’t be a scaredy cat….check out Philadelphia Zoo’s annual Boo at the Zoo. Set out on a not-so-spooky adventure through “Extinction Graveyard” and run wild at the trick-or-treat stations situated around the Zoo. Dress up in your favorite costume, enjoy festive fall offerings available for purchase (think hot apple cider!) and have a bootiful Halloween!

Happy Haunting!


Get there early. I arrived at 10:30am, and there was a long long line to exit the highway onto the zoo road, then a wait to get into the Zoo Parking Garage, which is my favorite spot to park. We parked on the top floor, that never happened. The Zoo assures me that there are plenty of parking lots to accommodate the upwards of 20,000 people that may attend Boo at the Zoo.


Beau and a squirrel scared each other

Boo at the Zoo! You can spend the night at the Zoo on October 19, 20, 26 or 27 – Overnighters can beat the crowds and access premium parking with an arrival the night before! Also featured at Boo at the Zoo overnights are spooky crafts and activities, designed to teach children about critters of the night.  And you get to enter the Zoo the next day before everyone else. Bring your favorite costume to wear.

Spooky Overnights are for ages 6+. All overnight guests must be accompanied by an adult chaperone.

Emmy Winners, Gabe Eats, Celebrities in Town, Cake – Delicious Chit Chat

Emmy Winners, Celebrities in Town, Cake – Tasty Talk Chit Chat

 

I was wondering this morning, I wonder if Seattle is having an unusually sunny season as we are not. It was gorgeous over the weekend despite the sun. Yesterday I went to Boo at the Zoo. What a fun event. Photos will be published on Philly Voice and CBSPhilly today and I will have the links tomorrow along with additional photos for PhillyChitChat. Let’s see what is happening in Philly in another edition of HughE Around Town.

Best news today, Classic Cake will be opening on Halloween in Suburban Station, 16th & JFK

I had dinner at Red Owl Tavern last week and it was delicious. I always have been a big fan of Red Owl Tavern, but now with  new Executive Chef Robert Surdam it’s really a place you need to go. I had the duck, and you know I love my duck. I can’t wait to go back and try more menu items, like this delicious candied treat called The Kitchen Sink. Check out more info on Philly Bite’s about what you can expect at Red Owl Tavern.

Speaking of candy, eye candy specifically, I hear
Gabe Kapler, Phillies, was at Davio’s yesterday where he enjoyed a Long Bone and 2 Over Easy eggs at the bar while watching football on a Sunday in Philadelphia.
You know it’s the height of the social season and I’m limited to covering client events. I was sad i could meet Laura, I mean Genie Francis at the Phila Inquirer aging event this weekend.

And doubly sad once again I couldn’t make it to the Women’s Conference again this year, but thousands of my friends did including one best friend, Sheila Hess here with Serena Williams.
I did make it to the Pink Tie Gala, raising funds for Komen Philadelphia. Natasha Brown and Jim Donovan did the MC honors. We grabbed a selfie in between moments at the mic, with his friend Joe. Cute couple alert.

Congrats to Sue Serio, Fox29 for being recognized at the MidAtlantic Emmy’s this past weekend.

Congrats to the team at NBCPhiladelphia for their Emmy “Breaking the Silence”. The silence being suicide awareness
program which I participated in, as many people did in Philly, and connected to the American Foundation of Suicide Awareness.


Speaking of Denise Nakano, and the NBC10 Philadelphia team are moving from the Bala Cynwyd Studios to the new Comcast Technology Center next week and begin broadcasting from there. They will truly be NBC10 Philadelphia now. You might recall I was the one who broke that story, even before the NBC reporters knew. It was the talk of twitter, and officials at first denied it was happening. And now it has. So excited to have my friends in town. Who I’ll see tonight as well when I cover the
inaugural event for the Vai Sikahema Foundation at the Pennsylvania Convention Center – Philadelphia, PA (Philly)

Celebrities spotted Nancy Pelosi stopped by Nicole Miller in the Bellevue to pick up a few pretty items. She was more than happy to pose with Sabrina Pray, GM at Nicole Miller Philadelphia.
