ChitChat: Brooke Shields, hope chest on the move, Lê, K’Far
Happy Memorial Day Weekend. I hope you have a wonderful time with friends, family, sunshine and making memories, good memories. Also be good to yourself, we’re all vulnerable to FOMO, and loneliness. If you’re having a BBQ, or you want to connect with people have a party, get together, call that person you promised to get together with, invite someone over you know is alone this weekend…and best of all I’m going to give you some chit chat for discuss this weekend.
As I reported last week actor Jason Segal is in town to prepare for the AMC TV Series shooting a 10-episode, hour-long series called “Dispatches from Elsewhere” here in Philadelphia. Production starts in July and will continue through November. Like all of us he appreciates that Philly is a foodie town and has been spotted at a lot of eateries: Destination Dogs, Whole Foods on South Street, a.kitchen, The Dandelion, Butcher & Singer. Thanks for the shout out Nick Vadala from Philly.com

Michael Solomonov and Steve Cook’s upcoming all-day cafe in the Harper now has a name on the wall and a beautiful courtyard being built. James Beard Award winner Camille Cogswell will head up K’Far, an all-day bakery and cafe located within the luxe new development in Rittenhouse ~ @pearlpropertiesphilly The Harper . The refurbished large beam you see here is art, it used to hold up ceiling in Boyd’s Theater auditorium, which formerly was on this site. Thank you @pearlpropertiesphilly for preserving it!! The Harper opens on June 1
Starbucks at Dilworth Park has opened. They offer all the products you’d find at any of their stores including sandwiches, cake pops and coffee of every flavor. Check out the Center City District calendar for all the great events happening at Dilworth Park this summer.
It’s about a 25 minutes drive from Center City, where you can have a picnic, fish or walk about on trails exploring nature. There’s free parking, and a great visitor center with restrooms and nature exhibits. Have a great weekend….
