HughE Around Town: Spotted Chase Utley at Starbucks, New Midtown Eateries

It may be gloomy out, but we still have a timeline filled of friends photos in exotic places, right?

Not so gloomy, a reader spotted Chase Utley at the Starbucks at 18th and Spruce Streets yesterday afternoon. Thanks Abby Wanger for being a PhillyChitChat celebrity spotter.

Made In Chinatown filmed at Kanella on 2nd Street earlier this week where this photo was taken. Timothy Chivalette, Tony Ray Rossi, Shing Ka (producer/friend), Mark V Wiley (writer), Vincent Pastore, Robert “Bobby” Samuels (director), and Jay Kwon (lead)
Wednesday filming was in the Italian Market. The Philly Voice has a great article on the film, which has been in town since early July, where it started filming in Chinatown.

Also spotted cool new “bar stools” outside the soon to be open Tradesman restaurant on the 1300 block of Chestnut Street.  Craft Concepts Group is looking forward to opening their BBQ place in early August.
On my walk around town I noticed a new eatery called Midtown, where Penn 6 used to be in Midtown Village. An employee told me they have already had their soft opening, with the official opening coming in weeks. Best of luck, I’ve always love that spot.
The new Target in Northern Liberties, located near 6th and Spring Garden at 456 N. 5th St., is set to open on Aug. 19.
It’s much larger than the recently opened urban stores down town, and in Franklintown. It’ll be an added bonus to the neighborhood.

Tomorrow I’ll have my picks for Best Dressed at The Philly Style Magazine Party.
