Enjoy a slice of Rome in Philly for a night.

Luxury haven Boyds (1818 Chestnut St.) is celebrating fine fashion and food this Thursday, April 11, with its La Dolce Vita event. 

Guests - including Italian dignitaries, local athletes, and the city's most fashionable folk - will celebrate the retailer's Italian designer offerings (think Gucci and Prada), while enjoying cocktails and cuisine. The event will include sounds by DJs Jon Gill and Lorne Peart, in addition to several live pop-up Italian opera performances for a serious cultural experience.

After all, who doesn't want to enjoy the beautiful things life has to offer? The guest list is invite only.
