A Grand Weekend Out For Pennsylvanians

Dec 16, 2013 - The New York Times

It was 1899 when the Pennsylvania Society first gathered for oysters and Delmonico steaks at the Waldorf-Astoria, a gilded era when, the story goes, the industrialists and bankers who owned Pennsylvania lived in New York City.

Fricks and Carnegies no longer attend, but 114 years on, the Pennsylvania Society gathering has expanded to more than 60 receptions and parties over three days, and it is still every bit the semiprivate summit of the powers that be in the Keystone State.
