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


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
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.
