On Thursday, 4,500 people dressed in white, having paid for the privilege of lugging their own tables, chairs, and picnic dinners, will gather at an as-yet-undisclosed location in Philadelphia, then ceremoniously wave their napkins and share a meal. It's the fourth annual Diner en Blanc, Philadelphia - a radical act of public dining that has been polarizing in a city where the preferred alfresco meal is still a cheesesteak. Yet, 30,000 people have joined a wait-list (those who previously attended or were invited get first dibs)

Here are excerpts from Wednesday's Ask Gonzo chat on Philly.com with columnist John Gonzalez . Comment from Tay:  Gonzo, did you take to the streets of Philly after the Flyers won on Monday? Gonzo: No. Last time I took to the streets after a big win was the evening the Phils won the World Series. Even though I had waited my whole life for a parade, being on Broad Street the night they closed it out against the Rays was even more fun. It was a giant party. I'm actually surprised by how subdued it was after the Flyers made the Cup. I live a block off Broad, and normally my neighborhood is pretty loud after big wins.

An end-of-summer street party featuring megastar Jay-Z, Kanye West, and others drew tens of thousands of day-to-night revelers to the Benjamin Franklin Parkway on Saturday. Playing from three huge stages erected near the Philadelphia Museum of Art, musicians entertained a well-behaved, racially mixed, largely millennial-generation audience (ages 18 to 34) of nearly 40,000 for Part One of the "Made in America" concert. Part Two of the Labor Day weekend festival, headlined by Pearl Jam, is Sunday.

Brace yourselves, South Street neighbors, for what could be your most disgusting day of the year: Fat Tuesday. South Street's version of Mardi Gras last year drew about 25,000 mostly drunken partiers. Neighbors and police said the celebration wasn't pretty. People vomited and urinated on front stoops. Women bared their breasts in public. Couples fornicated near front doors of homes. Beer bottles were thrown at police. Revelers were partying and trashing neighborhoods near South Street from 7 a.m. until well past midnight.

More than 1,000 people wore the green on Saturday at the fourth annual Celtic Day on State Street in Newtown, when record-breaking temperatures contributed to record-breaking crowds. The centerpiece of the St. Patricks's Day celebration was the Fleadh Cheoil (street party), which featured Celtic dancers, musicians and singers. Proceeds are going into an endowment that will enable the Bucks County Community College Library to establish a Celtic library at its campus in Newtown. Co-sponsors of the event - the Association of Celtic Societies and the Newtown Business and Professional Association - hope to have raised $3,000 for the endowment.

APARTADO, COLOMBIA GUNMEN SLAY 33 AT STREET PARTY Gunmen believed to be leftist rebels fired automatic weapons at revelers at an early-morning street party yesterday, killing at least 33 people and wounding eight, authorities said. The massacre in Apartado, a poverty-stricken town of wood-plank shacks and cement storefronts 300 miles northwest of Bogota, was the bloodiest in Colombia in more than five years. The motive for the attack was unclear. Authorities interviewed on local radio said 35 people had been killed, but morgue officials said they counted the bodies of 32 men and one woman.

RIO DE JANEIRO - English speakers got their moment in the Carnival sun yesterday as a wild, Beatles-themed street party let them shake it up, baby, with a samba swing to "Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da. " Sargento Pimenta, Portuguese for "Sergeant Pepper," is one of more than 400 raucous street parties that spring up throughout Rio de Janeiro during Carnival. Hundreds of thousands of people turn out for the "blocos," packed, sweaty open-air dance parties where the crowd sings along to a repetitive medley of Carnival songs - usually in Portuguese, of course.

Authorities are preparing to charge former Philadelphia Police Lt. Jonathan Josey with simple assault for punching a woman in the face during a street party in September, sources confirmed Wednesday.

John McNesby, president of Fraternal Order of Police Lodge 5, the largest officers' union, said the organization would continue to support Josey and appeal to get him reinstated.

Stan White went out last week to scout a location for Camden's Peace on the Street party. Following a recent spate of violence, he wanted the July 26 event to be the best ever. What the school district community outreach specialist found was a collision of the city's chronic problems. Robert Johnson Park's main source of power was gone; copper wires had been cut and stolen. A refrigerator, heating equipment, and air-conditioning unit also were gone. The bathrooms were not working.
