As it turned out, the opening night of the Philadelphia Orchestra's 112th season need not have taken place in exile after all. The Kimmel Center labor negotiations, which drove the orchestra across the Schuylkill to the Irvine Auditorium and the Penn Museum for its Thursday concert and gala, now appear to be heading toward resolution, and the union Wednesday promised no disturbances of performances for days to come. But nobody knew that Oct. 6. The turnout of 1,000 or so for the fund-raising event was less than half what a full Verizon Hall would have held.

Wolfgang Puck, the innovative chef-operator of Hollywood's stylish Spago restaurant, shares his imaginative approach to the culinary arts in Wolfgang Puck's Modern French Cooking (Houghton Mifflin, $12.95). The youthful Puck is widely considered to be on the leading edge of a culinary revolution that began in France in the 1960s and that has reached new heights of creativity in sunny Southern California. His approach marries classic French cooking with a contemporary kitchen philosophy that simmers with liberation.

On Sunday, the chef slept late. Nine-fifteen, 15 minutes after his scheduled arrival, Wolfgang Puck leaped out of a dark sedan at 15th and Walnut - right in the middle of the intersection - and bounded into Striped Bass. Minutes later, he was chopping vegetables behind the restaurant's counter. "Watch your fingers," said Joe Wolf, co-owner of Striped Bass, with mock alarm. "Don't worry," Puck said. "I brought 12 of them with me. " Puck, creator of a worldwide restaurant empire that started with Spago in West Hollywood, was cutting up just a turnip's throw away from Paul Prudhomme, the Dom DeLuise lookalike who popularized Louisiana cooking.

WASHINGTON - How do you raise $1.9 million in three months? If you're Newark Mayor Cory Booker, you tap into a network of admirers that includes some of Hollywood's biggest producers, media moguls, and name-brand developers. Then you bring in Wolfgang Puck to cook. Ron Howard gave $5,000 to the Democrat's burgeoning 2014 Senate campaign. So did Rob Reiner. Executives from Disney and Warner Brothers donated. Ivanka Trump and New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg contributed $5,200 apiece.

AUTHOR TERRY McMillan is suing her former husband, alleging that he tried to smear her reputation during their highly publicized 2005 divorce. She seeks $40 million, so she thinks she had some reputation. McMillan, 55, filed the complaint Wednesday in a Contra Costa, Calif., court against Jonathan Plummer, 32, who inspired her best-selling 1996 novel, "How Stella Got Her Groove Back. " The book, adapted into a hit movie starring Angela Bassett and Taye Diggs, told the story of a 40-something woman who falls for a guy half her age. The suit says Plummer, a Jamaica native, wed McMillan in 1998 for U.S. citizenship.

We went to bed. I gave him one of my special looks. But it was the same old story. I wanted to do it; he didn't. Not tonight. Not tomorrow morning. Not ever. The idea repulsed him. Why is it that people who like to eat in bed - anything from poached eggs to pizza to chocolate chip cookies to broiled sea eel - often end up with people who think food in any form should be kept away from a pillow and mattress? Many people confide that although their mates don't object to sipping a cup of coffee in the bedroom, those same people insist it is verboten to munch potato chips or meatloaf while comfortably propped up on pillows.

Leigh Richards started at WXTU (92.5) a year and a half after the country station's 1984 sign-on. She marked her 25th anniversary on Nov. 9. And a week later, she was gone. Her last midday shift was Thursday. Station manager Natalie Conner said she was "not at liberty to discuss" it, and Richards did not return an e-mail request for comment. Steve Leshinski of the local unit of the American Federation of Television and Radio Artists said the dismissal was "not for cause.

Jeffrey Lurie will see green at his new home, too. Before the Eagles owner and his wife, Christina , move into the old Annenberg estate in Wynnewood next year, they're doing substantial work. Now in its framing stages, and visible from the road behind Lower Merion High, is a two-story building to house a tennis court and a two-lane bowling alley. Permits on file at Lower Merion Township show that the building's "green" roof calls for solar panels and a growing medium to allow plantings.
