Portraits

Batter up! It’s time for the eighth annual Gay Community Night at the Phillies, a night for us to show our pride and have an excuse to eat hot dogs and chili and wear beer cans strapped to our heads, no questions asked.

There’s a cute little gay bar hidden off Rittenhouse Square. Formerly the Post, the current Stir, 1705 Chancellor St., is run by business partners Stacey Vey and Holly Johnson and is a friendly little spot worth checking out if you haven’t been there before. One of those responsible for the warm and friendly atmosphere is veteran bartender Angela Bibey, who keeps the drinks flowing and the conversation going during her “Ladies Happy Hour” from 5-7 p.m. Tuesdays.

OK, I’ll come right out and state that I’m not a big opera fan, but I recently saw the Opera Company of Philadelphia production of “Orphée and Eurydice” and was delighted by the wonderfully imaginative staging, with very contemporary, stark lighting and interesting angles to heighten the dramatic effect.
