Happy Hour on the Terrace Featuring Bobby Rydell.

May 18, 2018

5:30 PM - 7:30 PM

Light hors d’oeuvres, beer, wine, soft drinks.

Meet Philly’s own Bobby Rydell and hear about “his vivid childhood on the fabled streets of South Philadelphia, through his more recent battles with alcoholism, and his lifesaving double-transplant surgery (he shares a liver with an eight-year-old girl),” all from his new memoir, Teen Idol On the Rocks.

To get you ready for his visit, we’ll show the 1963 version of Bye Bye Birdie on Wednesday, May 16, 2018. Rydell starred in the picture alongside such legends as Ann Margaret, Dick Van Dyke, Janet Leigh, and Maureen Stapleton.

Book signing to follow.

No charge.
