Hey, good lookin', what ya got cookin'? Plenty's on the plate for Philly foodie Dave Lieberman. The Food Network star and chef has his own dish to dish: He's just been named one of People mag's 50 hot bachelors of the year. Wonder how he woos his dates? Maybe with this finger-lickin' description of his mini-fudge chocolate cakes: "The ooey-gooeyness of these is decadent." Talk about sweet nothings. … Hear ye, hear ye - and hear this: With support from the Annenberg Foundation among a number of other donors, the U. of P. Law School has established a constitutional-law professorship to honor the Hon. Arlin M. Adams, former judge of the Federal Appeals Court and a Penn grad, whose many other roles include serving as former chancellor, Philadelphia Bar Association and the American Judicature Society. Currently, Adams is counsel at Schnader, Harrison, Segal & Lewis. … In this corner- Philly boxing hall of famer J. Russell Peltz! The local guy has teamed up with Golden Boy Promotions - Oscar de la Hoya, prexy - to promote the career of IBF junior middleweight world champion Kassim "The Dream" Ouma. Stars has volunteered to be a "round-card guy." … Another good sport: Longtime journalist Mel Greenberg, already a member of the local Jewish Sports Hall of Fame, will be honored with the Jake Wade Award of the College Sports Information Directors of America at the group's July 4 meeting in the city. Those fireworks, Mel? They're for you. … Somethin' from nothin'? Their cup must runneth over at Blank, Rome, which, according to The Deal, has been ranked in the top five of bankruptcy law groups the last two quarters. … Remember this "Date": This August promises "My Date With Drew" - and Stars isn't talking Drew Carey. Area guys Brian Herzlinger, Jon Gunn and Brett Winn - along with Kerry David - have directed, produced and edited the film about a longtime fan of Drew Barrymore and his wish to meet-and-greet her. Oh, by the way, that fan? The real-life Herzlinger. … Movie Stars, the sequel: Here's hoping that Lynn Chen of Sony Classic's "Saving Face" saved some time to catch up when she was in town. The filmmaker hosted a Q&A at the Ritz Five about her new flick, just a film canister toss from Newtown, where her hubby, documentarian Abe Forman Greenwald, went to the George School. Lynn's in-laws - Wendy Forman and David Greenwald - were happy to host a local nachas gathering after the screening. … It's hats off to TV's Nancy Glass, who was a judge for the Ladies Day Hat Contest at the Devon Horse Show. Despite rumors, Camilla was a no-show. … Mr. President! Mr. President! That's what Robert Fleischman of Center City can answer to now since being installed as prexy of Temple Beth Zion-Beth Israel. When not handling the technicalities of temple biz, the law-school grad's prexy of Automated Document Systems, a tech consulting company he founded. … And it doesn't look a day over 29: Producing artistic director Sara Garonzik better be stocking up candles; her Philadelphia Theatre Company is about to celebrate its 30th birthday. … What was Center City mainstay Sylvia Kauders doing in Rydal the past month? Long way to go for some rolls at Whole Foods. No, Sylvia picked up a role instead in a new film - working title "Rydal Park" - produced and directed by Philly's Matthew Shapiro, who co-wrote it with Dan Kitrosser. Also starring: Brad Oscar of "The Producers" fame. … Happy anniversary to you, happy anniversary to you, happy anniversary, David Jack - it's 10 years since the entertainer first started performing at Sesame Place - happy anniversary to you! Hey, David, maybe you can get Dave Lieberman to whip up a nice cake for the occasion?
