World Series party time

Parties always surround major sports events, and the swankiest World Series shindig will be the Phillies party Friday night at the Comcast Center. 

An enormous tent was erected Wednesday on the plaza at 17th Street and JFK Boulevard.

This one is private, and the Phillies are not talking.

My sources say security will be tight as hundreds of people gather for cocktails and food on the plaza, in the lobby beneath the signature video wall, and in the subterranean marketplace.

The guest list includes bigwigs from Major League Baseball, the front-office staffs, and sponsors -- but not the players.
