|Vinny from Jersey Shore goes beyond the traditional notion of an ironic t-shirt.
âº By now everyone knows that the season 3 crew of MTV's Jersey Shore
finds our guidos and guidettes back in Seaside Heights. But did you know they're back working at the t-shirt shop? We found Vinny trying to casually hawk his wares to a customer.
âº After a successful residency at the Society Hill Playhouse
for the past five seasons, BCKSEET Productions
is leaving SHP. No more cleaning up after
Caveman and Patent Leather Shoe enthusiasts. BCKSEET relocates to 535 South St. to create the BCKSEET Creative Co-OP
now through January and will hold open rehearsals to give street patrons a looksee. They'll also take a new theater series into area bars and restaurants. Not like Glengarry Glen Ross
but you get the drift.
âº Let's be discrete here. There's a new dungeon on the block 12th
Street, near the Convention Center courtesy of the Royal Women of Philadelphia
that specializes in erotic role-play, fantasy bondage and discipline. The Royal Castle
is female-owned and has a teensy slew of beautiful experienced dom dames who, if you stare at long enough, you'll recognize from other parts of your daily life. They have all the whip smart accouterments, private and open spaces. You have to have to pay $20 for a consultation to see what you might want, what you can handle and, I'm guessing, whether or not you're serious about dungeon drama. They're open to photographers using their (rental) rooms for photos shoots and are swank enough for a private affair. Plus they're accessible to New Jersey expressways and bridges, and they've cheap parking minutes from their door.
âºThe ride on Broad Street's Subways got a little more dangerous last Saturday when the ramshackle TJ Kong and the Atomic Bomb
went from the Pattison, to Fern Rock stops playing songs from their debut CD. No one got jailed. Everyone was arrested. âº Tommy Lee
had breakfast in the drizzle with an unnamed lady companion at Marathon Grill
on Chestnut before he and the Motley Crue
in Camden. âº On Friday, Philly's Disco Biscuits
hung out shooting a documentary, having a nosh at Darling's Diner
at da Piazza at Schmidts
âºWhat's the hub bub bub at the old stucco-ed super-spot on 10th & Christian? The long-boarded up building was rumored to become a Santucci's Square Pizzeria
. Actually the building is more rectangular, hmmm. Anyway after I wrote a Meal Ticket post
where a rep for Joe Santucci
denied that was the case, Alicia Santucci
wrote and confirmed in the affirmative. "We are indeed opening a Santucci's at the corner of 10th and Christian. Although we have a lot of work still to do, we are very proud and excited to open up our newest location. We are expecting to open late October," the femme Santucci writes. Whee. âº Blocks away on Ninth Street's lower half near the Ric Rac
, rumor is spreading that a tattoo parlor will start inking by October
Has been looking for some lovelies to fill the slot next to Bill Henley
for the next two weeks. Starting today, look for Love Boat
lady Jill Whelan
, ex-Wired 96.5 morning gal G-N Kang
and our fave one-time co-host, singer Lauren Hart
