If we mentioned everyone we saw and greeted at this traditional holiday event for the city's Italian-American lawyers and their guests we'd be here all day.
But we are picturing three of our favorite Philly lawyers (from left): Philadelphia Bar Association Chancellor-elect Sayde J. Ladov, former Justinian Chancellor Barbara Capozzi and current Justinian Chancellor (and PR guru) Gina Furia Rubel.
True, it was a damp, icy, bone-chilling night outside last night. But inside the Ballroom with the Justinians all was warm, friendly, bright and beautiful.
Hundreds of merrymakers dined on fresh cold giant shrimp, crab claws and clams on the half shell as well as salmon, several types of pasta, roast beef, turkey and a huge Caesar salad. Also featured were cannoli, mini-pastries and chocolate covered strawberries.
And yes, the open bar attracted a large share of party-goers throughout the evening.
