Sunday Stories: Shipp Surprise, Mad River Closes, Chick Fil A Pivots

COVID19 Day ten thousand, at least it feels that way when it’s cloudy, 68F, and nearly Memorial Day. OH AND of course socially distancing for so long. Sure I go out. I go to the beach more than I normally would in the month of May, but I’ve never had so much time on my hands, and have been so depressed as well. I’m sure we are all in the same boat, wondering when it is safe to hug again. But here’s some good news….

NBC10’s weather gal Brittney Shipp, was surprised with a baby shower spearheaded by her bff, and co-worker, NBC10’s Jacqueline London. Under the premise of doing a NBC10 Promo Shoot, Jackie & Anzio Williams, Vice President of News WCAU – NBCUniversal Media, were able to surprise Brittney while coordinating with her husband Jontue Long to celebrate the socially distant pop up party. Guests included Melissa Magee, 6ABC, Violeta Yas, Telemundo, Annemarie Oswald and Melanie Magill as well as a few very happy friends.

The Sad Reality of Business Due to COVID-19 virus. Killing people and businesses. Mad River in Manayunk announces it’s closing for good.

Friday night I enjoyed Feast Well Foods Sunday Gravy, Taluttos’s Raviolis and meatballs. So good. It’s by Feast Your Eyes Catering, they have pivoted during this time and created delicious meals for Take Out or Delivery.
Saturday Mike and I headed to the beach for a breeze. I stopped by Atlantic City to grab some shots for my column in CBSPhilly. Check them out here.

Philly Style Party, Rupert Grint, Advertise With Us

Philly Style Party, Rupert Grint and Chit Chat About Last Night

Happy Thursday, we’re almost there. Last night I covered a wonderful event in Manayunk at the Starfinder Foundation. It’s an organization who’s mission is “Using soccer to help Philadelphia’s underserved youth grow, learn, and succeed, both on and off the field. #soccerforsocialchange.”

It was a lot of fun, even when the soccer ball hit my camera at 100 mph. I’ll feel you you sports photographers, lol. Hope I don’t get a black eye. (Every Saturday I will have a blog entry with all the links to the various events I’ve attended the week before, so look for it.) Afterwards I headed to The Fitler Club to catch the last half hour of the Philly Style Magazine’s 2019 Datebook launch. It was so much fun, I didn’t take any photos with my camera but grabbed a few shots off of Instagram and posted below. It was quite a party, so much fun and people were DRESSED to the nines. The Filter Club impressed me so much more last night, then when I saw it earlier this month.

The Garden event space at the Fitler Club was quite nice, and intimate. It’s outside but private. Another nice thing, that BMW from BMW of Devon.
Rupert Grint is in town filming the M Night Shylaman’s new Apple TV Series which is untitled at the moment, and has been spotted all over town during his off hours. Last week he scored a few bullseyes at Bury The Hatchet Philadelphia Axe Throwing (1719 Washington Ave 2nd Floor, Philadelphia, PA 19146 ). Saturday he grabbed a bite to eat at Center City’s Middle Child. He’s also been spotted at Terrain in Glen Mills for dinner. Yesterday the TV series filmed on location at the 2200 block of Spruce Street, which they do about once a month. Most of the time they’re filming in the custom movie studio in Garnett Valley, where they have replicated the street.
Congrats again to Chris Cucci and Michelle Conron who got hitched last week. To kick off their honeymoon they headed to sunny, warm California, with a first stop at Lisa Vanderpump’s Villa Blanca in Beverly Hills. Lisa was there too. Now that’s a way to kick off a memorable honeymoon
