Pasta with Sinatra
Pasta with Sinatra, an old-school supper show, celebrates the music from the Great American Songbook featuring Sinatra in his prime, and the Italian gravy is just like Frank’s mom Dolly made it back in Hoboken, New Jersey. If you are lucky, Sinatra’s coming-of-age reflection song, “September of My Years,” fittingly will be on the musical menu. Ol’ Blue Eyes sing on through the velvety pipes of local Sinatra sound-alike, Steve Ritrovato, who will help revive the classic sounds of Sinatra, who had many ties to Philadelphia, where he hit plenty of high notes: He married the love of his life, the glamorous Hollywood actor Ava Gardner, in a ceremony in Germantown in 1951; he came to Philly to perform at Palumbo's Nightclub in South Philly regularly; he ate with the locals, including radio legend Jerry Blavat, at their homes and restaurants, and his closest friend was Sid Mark, local radio DJ, who had a national radio show on Friday nights and Sunday mornings based in Philly. Sinatra died in 1998 at age 82. His memory and voice live on. It’s an all-you-can-eat Italian 'gravy' dinner with a “Philly Finish” of the award-winning beer – a full tap list -- from Wissahickon Brewing Company, of East Falls. Wissahickon Brewing Company, 3705 West Schoolhouse Ln., East Falls, $60; 5:30 p.m. 215-483-8833 or wissahickonbrew.com.
