“Fill with mingled cream and amber,

I will drain that glass again.

Such hilarious visions clamber

Through the chamber of my brain —

Quaintest thoughts — queerest fancies

Come to life and fade away;

What care I how time advances?

I am drinking ale today.”

— Edgar Allen Poe

Well, if you are in the mood for the queerest fancies or some cold ale, make your way over to Locust Street and see this week’s Portrait, Tony Lantz. The handsome former military man has been a staple for 15 years at U Bar (originally known as Uncles) and can be found pouring libations Wednesdays through Sundays.

This week’s Portrait is a man of many skills. A master’s-level, licensed clinical independent social worker with a private practice in Bucks County, he also has a healing center in Asbury Park, N.J. Manjot Singh Khalsa is also an ordained interfaith minister, Reiki master, advanced Shamanic practitioner and Kundalini yoga and meditation teacher, as well as a member of NASW, ISSTD, WPATH and ACFE. I don’t even know what they mean, but they sound good.

To explain the work of the LGBT Equality Alliance of Chester County, I’m going to share this info directly from the group’s website:

“In January 2015, Rachel Stevenson sought to revive the LGBTQA social scene that once thrived in Phoenixville, from 2001-09, in a little gay bar called Frank Jeffreys. Once closed, and with the need for social contentedness, the first monthly afternoon ‘tea dance’ was held on Jan. 11, 2015. These ‘tea dances’ brought together the LGBTQA community from Chester County and surrounding areas.
