First things first: I overdressed for the occasion. Didn’t need to have the scarf, beret and the 3/4 coat for the 55 degree temperature this evening. I was eyeing the overnight weather reports that threatened high winds. Nevertheless I did it there and back with very little wear and tear.
North Star Bar sits alone, almost lonely in the Fairmount section of Philly, with a modest crowded bar space, leading to a separate area with tables and chairs plus the requisite HD TV…and then the main room with lots of room to dance around in. Great visibility tho it’s best to be about 12 feet or closer to the stage for optimal viewing. There’s also the upstairs balcony where you’re about 15 feet up and you need to be at the banister to really see everything. It’s as if you’re looking down at a recording studio in full dress rehearsal.
