Starter Kits: Everything You Need to Be a Philadelphia Whale

So you wanna be a high-roller? Even if you don't have the bucks, you can gain some cred with the right kind of name-dropping.

Sample ways to work your whale-ness into conversation:
· "Traffic was awful today. I went to New York to get measured for the Purdey rifle I'll use on safari next month, and it took three hours. My driver was going nuts."
· "My wife says our barber is flirting with her lately. I don't know what she's talking about. He's been coming to our house every morning for three years now. I think he just wants in on the yacht trip, so he's being friendly."

· "I wish I could stay and talk, but we have reservations at Vetri at 7, and Marc and I always like to chat for a while before we're seated. His protege cooks for me when I'm at the Ritz."
· "Hmm. I probably shouldn't have left my dog Cupcake in the Bentley by herself, but I just got back from Jupiter Island, and there everyone leaves their cars unlocked. So much nicer!"
