In 2013 I had an idea to bring my friends in the Media and PR for a party in hopes of collaborating on projects, as well as get tips on pitching the media.
I’ve always wanted to do another one, but time was not on my side until last night. Capital Grille (Broad and Chestnut) and I partnered on my 2nd InHUGHbator. This time I decided to do a less former get together, but still invite media, PR (many of whom have hired me my entire career.) I didn’t do a panel, or speak this time, but I did take everyone around and made introductions including the backgrounds of people, and potential story ideas. It’s fun to connect people.
Thanks to Capital Grille’s Taylor Orsini, Sales Manager and Chef Y Moore for a delicious night. Did you know they have 5 event spaces you can host your own event. Also thanks to our server Tamara. Ask for her when you stop in for a bite to eat. I recommend the sirloin steak with a wedge salad.

I really wanted to go to this, but I was covering the Philly Style Magazine party, which I will be writing about on Monday. Tune in to see what people wore, and what they told me, especially Carl Dranoff.
The Todd Herremans Foundation recently hosted
members of Leprechaun Sports Association of Philadelphia at DICK’S
Sporting Goods. Eagles players Todd Herremans, Jason Kelce and Mark
Sanchez served as “Shopping Consultants” and surprised the kids with
$100 shopping sprees from the Herremans Foundation as they shopped for
winter coats, gloves, boots and other cold-weather gear.
Todd Herremans and the kids. I like those shamrocks on the sleeves. I think this would be a good St Patrick’s Day look. (It’s only 10 weeks away)
“It’s a great feeling to provide underserved
children with a chance to get the cold-winter gear they need, as well as
some other great things from DICK’S,” said Herremans. “I’m really
thankful for (Jason) Kelce and Mark (Sanchez) to take time out of their
busy schedules to help spread some holiday cheer.”
The kids enjoyed a Chik-Fi-Let lunch, and who wouldn’t.
