Q: I recently met the perfect guy - or so I thought. One night he invited me over for a home-cooked dinner, which was very nice. For dessert he served brownies. We ate the whole pan. We were drinking wine and I started getting all giggly. I wound up staying the night and, yes, we were intimate. It was the first time. Today he told me had a confession to make. The brownies were laced with marijuana. I was shocked. I've never smoked pot before and I feel taken advantage of. Mia: You have every right to be mad. He gave you an illegal drug without your knowledge.

The "bachelor's package" at the Penthouse Club in Port Richmond includes an invitation onstage and doting attention from the dancers. But for one Montgomery County man, it also came with internal bleeding, according to a lawsuit filed in Philadelphia Common Pleas Court last week. Patrick Gallagher of Lansdale claims a dancer slid down a stripper pole and landed on him with such force that his bladder ruptured. The incident occurred in late November 2010, when Gallagher visited the club on Castor Avenue near Balfour Street with friends to celebrate his impending marriage, said his attorney, Neil T. Murray.

Just in time for Father's Day, Adam Sandler delivers That's My Boy, a father-son bonding movie that's also his first hard-core R comedy. I'd say hold out for getting the ugly tie as a gift instead. Laugh-wise, That's My Boy occupies the same general place on the sliding Sandler scale as Jack and Jill, which set a record last year for Golden Raspberries, coming both as a sloppy comedy and a cry for help. Years from now, film historians may look back at J&J as Sandler's Jekyll-and-Hyde psychodrama, in which the comedian wrestles with the id-like creature inside him that compulsively surrenders to the first flatulence joke that springs to mind.

Former Phillie Lenny Dykstra continued his long plunge from the heights of baseball this week when he was sentenced to three years in California prison for grand theft auto. It was the latest in a series of legal problems that have beset the one-time All Star since he retired from the major leagues in 1998. Dykstra's story is a reminder that superstardom and the wealth that accompanies it are fragile and temporary. Often, the most gifted athletes fall the hardest, unable to adjust to the realities of life outside professional sports.

As best man for his sister's fiance, Daniel Curran said, he planned everything for the two-day bachelor party: the get-together on the night of July 24, 2009; the next day's trip to see the Phillies play the Cardinals at Citizens Bank Park; and a limousine to take home the 20 to 25 celebrants at the end of the night. More than two years later, Curran looked haunted as he told a Common Pleas Court jury Thursday how his plans went horribly awry in a bar fight followed by a parking lot brawl outside the ballpark that ended with his best friend dying on the asphalt.

The lawyer for a Fishtown man accused of delivering the fatal kick to the head of David W. Sale Jr. during a beer-fueled melee two years ago outside the Phillies' ballpark told a Philadelphia jury that his client was a victim of mistaken identity and would testify. "He never touched David Sale," Jack McMahon, the attorney for Francis Kirchner, said Wednesday in his opening statement to the Common Pleas Court jury in the trial of Kirchner and two others in the death of Sale, 22, of Lansdale.
