Happy Opening Day Phillies!! I have an insanely busy day. I’ll be at CBP with the Philly Zoo Key from 1PM til about 2:30PM inside 3rd Base Gate / Pass and Stow, then at 6:30pm I’ll be back in town for Sherry Knowlton‘s book signing at Shakespeare & Co (come by, it’s free) and finally a movie screening of Emilio Estevez‘s documentary, all of which I’ll share more info on Friday with you. Let’s Chit Chat Philly Gossip…

Copyright © 2018 The Phillies/Mitchell Leff The new area, which will have food, a retail section and features the old Liberty Bell from Vet Stadium is called Pass and Stow and is behind Third Base.
Immediately upon entering the Third Base Gate, fans will experience the outdoor beer garden, Goose Island Bar at the Park featuring a variety of beers, wine and spirits, and Foundry Pizza of Pass and Stow. The first of its kind at Citizens Bank Park, this open-air, food and drink destination will span 11,500 square feet, seat 250 fans, and have ample standing room.
They’ll have chicken wings, and a hot Chicken Sandwich. A house-made kielbasa with cornichons, pickled mustard seeds and arugula, tater tots, and burgers, shakes and fries from Shake Shack. PLUS Questlove’s Cheesesteak, he’ll be there today on Opening Day too.
This year’s Philadelphia Antiques and Art Show will be held from Friday, April 26, through Sunday, April 28, 2019, at The Navy Yard, with a Preview Party on Thursday, April 25, and a jazz night on Saturday, April 27. Over 60 of the country’s preeminent antiques and fine art dealers are participating from across the US, and a full schedule of special programs is planned, including social events, lectures, panel discussions and tours. This year, The Women’s Committee of the Philadelphia Museum of Art is organizing the Preview Party, show programming and providing volunteer support for the show. Several Main Line residents are volunteer organizers of the 2019 Philadelphia Antiques and Art Show, including: (seated L-R) Michele Lockwood, Robin Williams, Hannah Henderson, Eve Walker (otherwise known in my family as my mom’s best friend); (standing L- R) Margo Eremus, Martha Morris, Ann Calvert, Ellen Caplan, Stephanie Simmerman, and Margot Sullivan.
nearly all of their friends flew down to celebrate with them that weekend, which would explain the dip in revenue for the Rittenhouse eateries. It was even possible to get a table outside at Parc on what is usually a busy Saturday afternoon the first weekend of spring.
Sunday I stopped by Tradesman with my pals Alex Holley and Thanuja Hamilton, where Sixers personality Christian Crosby, and his Live Life Nice crew, partnered with Not Your Basic Brunch, a monthly brunch party held there to bring the fun and it was a lot of fun, before I left to cover Mission Possible at XFinity.
