Hughe Around Town this week: DjAktive’s Dope Ass Party, Alex Holley Flying High, Pat Croce Spotted
Wicked weather came our way yesterday. Hope everyone arrived home safely. Back in the spring I do recall the weather people predicting a wet August, and a hot September. I don’t want to wish this month away, but I wish the rain would stop and we could enjoy the final rays of sunshine for the summer.
Let’s see what’s happening around town…
Philly’s DjAktive finished up the 2nd leg of the tour with Janet Jackson and Outside Lands (It resumes in the fall for a few more dates including a stop at AC’s Hard Rock Casino) in San Francisco Sunday , returns home this weekend and is throwing a “Dope Ass Party” at the Piazza. Stars scheduled to perform include:
Mr Hollywood DJ
and many more

Speaking of the Hardrock Casino, DJ Elephante spun at Daer Nightclub Sunday night, and was kind enough to pose with Rocco Cima, formerly a Q102 Dj, and currently the owner of Fuel, health food. DJ Elephante stops by NOTO November 16.
Speaking of Down the Shore: On any given day at Steve and Cookies you’re going to see a local celebrity, and on occasion a real one. Over the past few weeks I’ve heard Councilman Allan Domb was dining, across the room was Pat Croce who snapped his annual “we have to stop meeting like this” photo with PR gal Dallyn Pavey Uosikkinen, nearby Lynsie & Evan Solomon were dining with Dana and Ron Donatucci, which reminds me that Ron Donatucci’s foundation “Michael’s Giving Hand” is being honored next year by the Philadelphia chapter of American Foundation of Suicide Prevention; plus Ron will attend and speak at the annual walk October 7, 2018
Alex Holley tried her hand at the flying trapeze last week, which aired on Fox 29 on Friday. She passed with flying colors, sailing through the sky with the greatest of ease. Now it’s your turn as the Philadelphia School of Circus Arts announces the grand opening of Philadelphia Flying Trapeze. Philadelphia’s only permanent outdoor flying trapeze school now offers two-hour outdoor flying trapeze lessons at Circus Campus, 6452 Greene Street in West Mt. Airy – conveniently directly next to the Upsal SEPTA Station. Lessons will run Wednesdays through Sundays, through October 28, 2018, with weekday lessons running 11:00am to 1:00pm and 6:00pm to 8:00pm, and Saturdays and Sundays at 10:00am to 12:00pm, 1:00pm to 3:00pm and 4:00pm to 6:00pm.
I noticed the other day that a.bar has changed its branding a bit, it’s more than just a bar, they serve coffee as well, plus delicious food.
This spot at 20th & Arch, has gone through many incarnations, now it seems that Indian Cuisine is rebranding as
Thanal an Indian Tavern. Best of luck to them.
Opening soon in Spring Garden, at the City View Apartments, is Art City Vets where MIGA restaurant used to be located.
11am – 4pm The Schmidt’s Commons | Northern Liberties, Phila
With Love: Super Adoption Day will once again be the largest event of its kind in Philadelphia history and one of the largest pet adoption events nationwide. Organized by Citizens for a No-Kill Philadelphia (an animal welfare advocacy group), there will be rescue groups and shelters with adoptable animals for the public to meet and hopefully adopt! The event is going to be held on Saturday, September 8th from 11:00am – 4:00pm at The Schmidt’s Commons, formerly The Piazza (an 80,000 square foot open-air plaza in Northern Liberties) and will feature music, refreshments, shopping, special guests and more!
Here are important dates to remember if you haven’t registered to VOTE, or you’re going to be out of town on Nov 6.
