  • A liquor license popped up in the window of the nearly completed 1612 South St., and Foobooz reports that the proprietor will be Jon Adler of the Beauty Shop Cafe. It’s going to be a pretty big space, about 5,000 square feet including the basement.

All charges against Elijah Milligan dropped; Stateside names new chef

The case against former Stateside chef Elijah Milligan, who was fired the day he was arrested on assault charges in October, was thrown out for lack of evidence, according to court records.

Milligan’s attorney, Jonathan Cohen, said shortly after his client’s arrest that Milligan was trying to mediate a dispute between his girlfriend and her sister’s girlfriend, who lived in an apartment downstairs, which a witness acknowledged at his preliminary hearing.

The charges were tossed this month after two court proceedings, Cohen said today. “Stories kept changing, he said. “The case was dismissed even before I had to show the callers’ stories on the 911 tapes didn’t match the stories the police documented on scene.”

Meanwhile, Stateside has named a new chef with an impressive pedigree: Kevin D’Egidio, who was most recently down Passyunk Avenue at Will BYOB but had spent time at Tangerine and Lacroix, reports the Insider.

Stateside installs stools outside – bolted to the wall

After being granted an extension of their outside seating permit, Stateside has taken a novel approach to al fresco dining that will further cement the restaurant’s top-notch reputation.

The restaurant installed swing-out stools on the outside of the bar. The height of each is adjustable by swiveling the seat. They’re also bolted to the brick wall, taking care of the pesky slanting sidewalk that would have made traditional stools treacherous.

UPDATED: Stateside applies for outside seating on other side of the bar

This post has been updated from an earlier version.

A liquor license popped up on Stateside’s window a couple days ago saying they were expanding their outside seating. That can mean only one thing: seats on both sides of the bar.

Get those trash cans out of the way so we can imagine sitting on stools out there.

Tables already had been placed along the Cross Street side of the restaurant, leaving a gaping opportunity for more seating on the Passyunk side. The windows swing out, and the bartenders stand in the middle of what is essentially a double-sided bar.

Passyunk Christmas tree lighting brings out the masses

More than 300 neighbors and visitors poured onto the streets around the fountain last night for the Christmas Tree Lighting on Passyunk Avenue and Tasker Street. As we told you last week, the street was closed off to cars and the block surrounding the fountain was bustling with couples, families, dogs and the big man himself, Santa.

Businesses along the Avenue provided free food and drinks for attendees. The hot chocolate from Black N Brew was the most popular treat given the chilly temperature. Stateside was offering a free cocktail, Belle Cakery gave out cookies and Ms. Goody Cupcake slung their treats, plus more, all for free.
The students of the Andrew Jackson School rock band played holiday classics while patrons waited for the tree to be lit. At 5:30 sharp, the countdown started and the tree lit up. Children cheered and singing filled the air well past the lighting. A group of youngsters from the Alphabet Academy hit center stage with Santa, while their parents watched in enjoyment.
The shops, street lights and houses along the Avenue are making East Passyunk start to look a lot like Christmas. For more Christmas spirit, check out this link for a line-up of the EPABID’s Deck the Avenue festivities,  running all month long.
