|L to R: Jerry Blavat and A.D. Amorosi|
Earlier this week on August 20 at the Philadelphia Museum of Art, Philadelphia Magazine celebrated its annual "Best of Philly" issue, as well as the publication’s 40th anniversary. Winners of culinary Best of Philly Awards past and present were there, as well as a host of notable locals. No Philadelphian was more famous than the night’s entertainment, the venerable Geator with the Heater, Jerry Blavat.

The most famous Philadelphian there was the night’s entertainment and its unofficial host (he even greeted me outside the door with a big hug), Jerry Blavat, the disc jockey and author of the best-selling (and now in paperback) You Only Rock Once. Blavat juked and jived and did a dance that mixed the Soul City Walk with the Twerk. Can we call that it the Swerk?
