PhillyChitChatter: Celebs in Philly; Eagles Celebrations; Bradley Cooper, Bridget Foy Rebuilds

Good Thursday Morning, hope you were all able to settle down from the tremendous celebration of the the Eagles capturing the NFC Championship. It definitely took me a few days to float down to earth, but I am wearing my championship hat everyday and humming #FlyEaglesFly every day.

Minnesota’s Metro Transit made good on their friendly bet with SEPTA to change their “wallpaper” on their twitter account to feature a Philadelphia bus with the Eagles logo on it.

Aramark, who has the food contract at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota has unveiled new food items to be sold celebrating the taste-buds for the Philadelphia Eagles and the New England Patriots match up #SuperBowl

Speaking of Eagles,  6-5, 241-pound Philadelphia Eagles Defensive end Bryan Braman (2nd from left), LtoR Josh Bryan, Cindy Garnick, CEO of Garnick Entertainment and Media Group and Publicist Sean Stellato agent to both Eagle and Patriots! Braman spent the day clothes shopping stopping at Mitchell & Ness, getting a custom suit from Distante Clothing and then heading for lunch with his friends. The next day Braman appeared on WMCN in Cherry Hill, NJ with team mate Billy Brown. The duo chatted about healthy eating with Eraldo Maglara, Celebrity Fitness Trainer, Author (The Real Fountain of Youth ) and TV Host of Healthy Lifestyle With Eraldo and the upcoming Super Bowl on February 4.

Philly’s Bradley Cooper was spotted playing with his baby Lea de Seine on Sunset Beach just south of Los Angeles Tuesday wearing his favorite teams jersey, as the heartthrobs girlfriend Irina Shayk looked on. (TMZ)

Good Morning America’s Michael Strahan, and several former NFL players – Curt Menefee, Jimmy Johnson, Howie Long and Terry Bradshaw headed to South Philly last week for a Philly Cheesesteak. They were also spotted at DelFrisco’s as well as the Ritz Carlton’s lounge as well as dining at Aqimero

Actor Josh Duhamel‏ was spotted at the Ritz Carlton and posed for a photo with Kimmie Ragone.
Who says those Eagles fans were anything but nice to those Viking fans.

Bridget Foy’s was gutted by a fire October 25, 2017, devastating now only the Foy’s but the community that loves them. There was an amazing outpouring from the community, and regulars to the iconic South Street eatery. Today they put this rendering of the new place up on their FB page. Sadly the original building wasn’t able to be saved, but the new building looks remarkably the same, but better. Look at those awesome big windows on the first floor. When I spoke with Bridget Foy late last year, she told me the kitchen now be located in the basement, and the space on the right side where the kitchen used to be, will be used for more outdoor seating. It’s just a matter of time before our favorite spot, and Alex Holley’s favorite Easter parade viewing spot is open again.

Speaking of heartthrobs, Phillies World Series Champ Cole Hamels and his wife, country songwriter Heidi Hamels were at last nights Sixers game. Congrats to the Sixers who won the game over the Chicago Bulls. Thanks to Cindy Webster, PR for CBS Radio for capturing the moment.

What a great tail gate party on Sunday with Cindy Webster, CBS Philly. Ray Pennacchia, Senior Vice President at NovaCare, Rhea Hughes, CBS Philly and Ted Simon, Esq, with photo bomber Mayor Jim Kenney

Many of my friends, including Dr. Thanuja Hamilton, caught Rufus Wainwright at the Kimmel Center where he performed with the Philly Pops. The next morning she headed to a family wedding in DC and ran into the vocalist, composer, and songwriter who was headed to his next gig in Virgina.
