When Billy and Michael Weiss decided they wanted to open Transit - their newest membership dance club, at Sixth and Spring Garden - with a steamy 24-hour party, they should have thought first about comfortable footwear. "These are the wrong shoes for this event," Billy said, trekking outside in the pouring rain to see the crowds lined up around the corner (a scene that lasted all night) to get into his new space. "My feet are killing me. " The torrential rain and humid night temperatures of April 15 lent a Blade Runner ambience to the opening of what was formerly Stephen Starr's The Bank, a collegiate fave that became the swank District.

Near the joints of gin and skin on Camden's Admiral Wilson Boulevard, there is a new club, a throwback to the days of top-hat musicals, where the blues wail, and the conga and salsa cha-cha-cha. To quote the doorman, decked out in derby and tux, as he greets guests to a black-and-red-walled room speckled with glitter and decorated with Tiffany lights: "Welcome to the Showplace. " "It's a little bit of the old Copacabana feeling, of Bogie and Casablanca. . . . " said Danny Montes, an owner of the 1,500-seat club, located in the old Sears building near the Benjamin Franklin Bridge.

If you watch the Golf Channel at all, there's little chance you could have missed it - the 30-minute infomercials for the E-Club, starring Nick Price, seem to run morning, noon and night. The E-Club, a Type II Jigger, as it is known by its full name, is a curious-looking thing. It has a small, lofted head on it that looks very much like a 5-wood, but the shaft is short and upright, like a putter. In fact, that's pretty much what the E-Club is - a fairway wood with an offset head and a putter shaft.

When Maureen Maguire was a student at La Salle University, her social life revolved around her sorority and organized intramural sports. At 27, the Newtown Square resident found herself surrounded by a friendly, but more limited, circle of people at the leasing company where she worked. Weekend activities required extra planning and phone calls. The Philadelphia Sports and Social Club, formed in the spring, has filled a gap for her and about a thousand other men and women in the post-college, pre- marriage crowd, who want to meet people and keep in shape.

Years ago, Atlantic City was the queen of gay nightlife at the South Jersey Shore. The beach block of New York Avenue and the surrounding areas literally teemed with hip bars, restaurants and discos, which were comparable to anything you'd find in Key West, Fire Island or other traditionally homosexual meccas. The clubs ranged from the ultra-grungy, decadent Dirty Edna's to the dazzlingly high-tech M&M. At the moment, however, there are only five gay clubs left in Atlantic City that are vying for dwindling patronage.

Roslyn Boys' Club succeeds not because it is big or because it is long-established, but because there are people in it who live it, sleep it, dream it and build future plans for it. - Roslyn Boys' Club motto Blue baseball caps tumbled among broken boards and concrete blocks as giant, yellow machinery claws demolished the 23-year-old building's flood-damaged remains. Rich Greene and other neighborhood volunteers peered over the rubble of the former Roslyn Boys' Club, looking for Little League trophies and other symbols of memories lost.

A banner commemorating the 1976 South Jersey Group 4 championship, won by the football team, is tucked into one corner of the gym at Camden High School. In another corner hangs a banner celebrating the state championship won by the 1975 boys' track team. However, most of the banners that wallpaper the cozy gym, which has old pipes that snake their way across the ceiling, confirm that basketball is the soul of a city that has become synonymous with urban blight. Two rectangular blackboards are on the wall behind one of the baskets in this haven of dreams.

About nine months ago, Yong N. Chang, who is Korean, asked Nicholas Harris, who is not, whether a Lions Club for Koreans living in South Jersey could be started. There is a Korean Lions Club in Philadelphia. And Harris knew that there was one in New York and one in California and one or two others scattered around. But there were none in New Jersey. There was a Cuban Lions Club in New Jersey. And a Portuguese one. But no Korean. "I was 100 percent for it," said Harris, the deputy district governor for Lions Clubs in a large portion of South Jersey.

Face it. Beards are everywhere - and we're not talking about a little stubble. More guys are wearing full-out fuzzy beards and mustaches - scruffy and dense like bracken, or elegantly coiffed and pointed like topiary - and the evidence of facial fawning grows. Manhattan's International Beauty Show this month hosted as many bearded models and clipper demonstrations as it did colorists and tall coifs. Cosmetic surgeons such as Ardmore's Rumer Cosmetic Surgery offer facial hair transplants (for $3,000)

Yankees newcomer Brian McCann knocked a solo homer against Detroit in Lakeland, Fla., on Friday, while Joba Chamberlain watched his former team beat up on his new club. "I don't know if I've ever hit a home run this early in camp," said McCann, who left the Atlanta Braves for an $85 million, five-year deal with New York. "I don't know if it's a good sign or a bad sign. " McCann's blast was the only hit Detroit starter Max Scherzer allowed in two innings, but three more home runs led to a 7-4 Yankees win. Chamberlain did not pitch, but he noticed some changes that have come with switching teams.

Terk Gindville is a Mummer out of step with tradition. And for him, that's just fine. Born on Second Street in the heart of Mummers territory 40 years ago, Gindville was automatically a member of the Bryson Comic Brigade, run by his grandfather Joe Bryson. But when Gindville was around 20, he approached Bryson and uttered the unthinkable. "I want to be a Fancy," he said. Wow , everyone thought. That's a Bloods or Crips, Eagles or Cowboys, Apple or Microsoft kind of dichotomy, isn't it?

  Ninth grader Natalie Nieves has known for a few years that she wants to join the military, like her cousin and uncle. In middle school, she looked forward to joining Coatesville Area High School's Air Force Junior ROTC. Then, she heard the 36-year-old program, the only one in Chester County, was in trouble. In the summer of 2012, parents and students had raised $157,000 that the district said it needed to save Junior ROTC for the coming school year. The national program wanted the school district to commit to funding the group in the future, but the district said it couldn't, so the program folded.

SALES OF PHILLIES tickets are lagging well behind the pace of the last few seasons. But nobody's panicking at Citizens Bank Park, according to John Weber, vice president for sales and ticket operations. And fans should see this as an opportunity - with seats available for every game, he said. Last year, five games - the Red Sox games, two bobblehead giveaway dates, and the game where kids can run the bases - were gone by mid-February, less than a week after the Phillies put single-game tickets on sale.

WASHINGTON - He has been with the Union for only about 48 hours, but when speaking, he already refers to his new team as "we," "us" and "ours. " Danny Cruz, the latest Union signing in the deal that sent Lionard Pajoy to D.C. United, made an emotional return to RFK Stadium to start Sunday night's match for his new club - against his former. He played 57 minutes in his debut for the Union, before succumbing to leg cramps. "I think emotions were running high from the beginning," Cruz said.

'Don't wanna spend another fall in Philadelphia," Hall & Oates sang on their first album, way back in 1972. This fall - when Daryl Hall is releasing a solo album, Laughing Down Crying , on Sept. 27 - there are abundant musical reasons to do exactly that. Among them: the opening of Union Transfer, a spiffy rock club in the old Spaghetti Warehouse space on Spring Garden Street, whose shows start with Clap Your Hands Say Yeah on Sept. 21. And the madness during the weekend of Sept.

When the headline "Amy Winehouse found dead at 27" came barging into our Saturday afternoon, the word dead felt like a long-promised punch to the gut. It may not have surprised anyone, but it still hurt like hell. And then there was the "27" - rock-and-roll's most dangerous number. It's the age that took Kurt Cobain, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison, and now a singer whose battles with drugs, drink, and depression were nightmarishly publicized in a mediascape her forebears never could have imagined.

The coolest thing about Union Transfer, the Spring Garden Street music venue set to open Sept. 21 with a show by Philadelphia indie-rock band Clap Your Hands Say Yeah, might be that the club will actually be cool. That's cool as in temperature. The club, booked by Sean Agnew of R5 Productions in partnership with New York promoter Bowery Presents, will be the polar opposite of the three-digit thermometer readings frequently registered at the First Unitarian Church, the wood-paneled sweatbox that's the centerpiece of Agnew's indie empire.

Ever wonder if this town is big enough to support another big concert venue, let alone two? Pretty soon, we'll know the answer. The Bowery Presents, a New York-based concert promoter and club operator run by (among others) former Live Nation exec Jim Glancy, has taken a long-term lease on the big building at 1026 Spring Garden St., the former Spaghetti Warehouse. If all goes well with their Liquor Control Board application, BP will open a new rock club on the site in the fall. There's also a huge, 3,000-capacity House of Blues entertainment venue coming to the waterfront area, near the SugarHouse Casino.
