To-Do List: 5-year Fringe anniversary; more Hawk Krall; discounted ‘Bathtub Moby Dick’; LoMo flea market; late-night cabaret…


Fringe salon at 1728  E. Passyunk Ave. is throwing a five-year anniversary party as part of Second Saturday from 6 to 9 p.m. Music will include Dj sets by Greg Mungan and ‘On & On’ along with Gretchen Elise and her live band! On the walls will be collages and paintings by Dan Eells. And there’ll be booze and snacks.


In other Second Saturday news, B2 will be hosting an art show by local food illustrator Hawk Krall, whose images adorn the Hot Diggity menu and were part of a show at Home furnishings boutique a few months back. This time, the work will be South Philly street scenes.

All weekend

The Renegade Theater company is putting on a play called “Bathtub Moby Dick” in an apartment at 1816 Wharton St., a space called Wharton Heights. 6 p.m. Tickets are $15 but for Passyunk Post readers, they are discounted to $10 if you buy them at the box office at the venue and use the code POST.

No one formula exists for injecting life into these fallen urban commercial corridors. But using Philly streets as case studies, Ryan Briggs looks at four distinct strategies for redevelopment and revitalization, laying out challenges, reinvention process and the innovative fixes that may apply to streets in your own city.

You would need to pay to read the story, and sorry to say, we didn’t, but we’re all familiar with what has made Passyunk great.
