Robert Irvine Launches; New Philly Dance Club; Kate Winslet Spotted; Sidney & Caroline Kimmel Celebrate

Hey ChitChat readers, hope you’re doing well. Ya gotta love this spring weather. Did you have a chance to visit the PHS Flower Show yet. Lots of great exhibits to see, as well flowers, make and take and the popular potting parties.

Earlier this week I stopped by to photograph celebrity chef, author and TV personality Robert Irvine, who was signing bottles of Boardroom Spirits at the PHS Flower Show in the Fine Wine and Spirits section. He also announced to the crowd that in a few weeks he would have his own line of spirits which would be distributed via Boardroom Spirits. First up is a Gin with some of his favorite herbs, spices and botanicals from the kitchen. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of the bottles will support the Robert Irvine Foundation, benefiting our military and first responders. Look for Chef Irvine to announce info for his popular dining event Beats & Eats which will be May 18, 2020. (Here are my photos from last year) Boardroom Spirits is a sustainable, family-owned craft-distillery offering unique drinking experiences to consumers. Headquartered in Lansdale, Pennsylvania.

Looks like the king of night life Ryan Dorsey is getting back into the night club business. The owner of Recess, former manager of NOTO and co-owner of Dos Tacos, Mr. Dorsey has been hinting on his social media of big things at 461 North 3rd Street, formerly McFaddens.

Mr. Ivy is now accepting applications

Thanks to my tipsters who told me Kate Winslet’s HBO TV Series was filming in Roxborough last weekend at the high school and Salvation Army, and in Wissahickon Valley this week.

Happy Belated birthday to Sidney Kimmel on his 92nd birthday in January. I spoke with Caroline Kimmel in January to chitchat a bit and she was nice enough to send this photo along. She told me they had dinner with friends including one of my favorite signer, Paul Anka, who sang a song in Sidney’s honor. The happy couple celebrated their 20th Anniversary in December, and Sidney surprised Caroline with a gift in her honor to Jefferson: a $70 million gift from Sidney and Caroline Kimmel, which will significantly advance research at Jefferson. The Caroline Kimmel Biomedical Research Building will be a home for big ideas, providing Jefferson scientists with leading-edge technology and laboratories. You can read more about it here.

Philly Gossip: Sally Field and Andre 3000 Jump Rope on Dispatches from Elsewere, Plus a New The Servant Teaser

Hope you’re out and about enjoying this beautiful day. I have a feeling that we are now w/i months of our first snow storm.

The new IPhone takes great photos, but not so great through windows with yellow street lights…just saying.

Thanjua welcoming Jason Segal to her neighborhood, he’s a few feet in front of her.

Thursday I started getting tips that Dispatches from Elsewhere with Jason Segel, Andr√© 3000, Sally Field, Eve Lindley and Richard E. Grant, would be filming on Locust St, but as I am in the middle of Social Season I didn’t think I’d be able to catch them. Luck be a lady, after my Friday night event I heard they were just starting to film. I was a little surprised they could secure a set on Locust St on a Friday night, but they did. I headed to my favorite deli Schlessinger’s and got a front row seat.

Although the reflective window was a bit to deal with I think you can make out Andree 3000 and Sally Field.

Although I had my camera with me, but I took these photos with my phone as I didn’t want to create a ruckus as sometimes happens when a paparazzo is on the scene. Everyone was great and recognized me, including Jason Segel who gave me a thumbs up and greeted me with a big smile when he saw me through the window at Schlessinger’s. That was very nice.

Earlier in the day they were filming at 832 Lombard Street. Thanks to a PhillyChitChat instagram follower for sending me this shot. There’s a smiling Jason in front of the window. If you’re keeping track, this is probably filming for the 6th episode of the 10 episode series. Filming is scheduled to continue through November.

M Night Shyamalan’s new Apple TV Series formerly called Crumpet, now called The Servant has dropped. The new TV series was filmed in the Philadelphia area. See you tomorrow on PhillyChitChat. Follow me on Instagram, Twitter and FB for up to the moment happenings.
