The Great Chefs Event was held at the Navy Yard, at Urban Outfitters headquarters, in South Philadelphia on Tuesday night. Chefs from Philadelphia and across the country – even from Italy – served up delicious bites for the nearly 1,500 people who came out to support the Vetri Foundation's annual charity event, which benefits Alex's Lemonade Stand Foundation.
The real fun began later at the VIP after party, which was held at Vetri's restaurant Alla Spina (1410 Mt Vernon St). Sweet Box Cupcakes, Nomad Pizza, DeBragga BBQ and a delicious spread by Alla Spina fed the masses. Questlove provided the tunes and kept the "dance floor" rocking. For those who wanted a more spacious area to mingle, there was a tent sent up outside with tables and chair, a spot to relax, eat and catch up with friends. Again, it was one of the most fun and exciting parties I got to attend this year (and every year).
