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.

The eats will be cheap, promise the owners of a new family restaurant on Spring Garden Street in a building that gives city officials indigestion - the city's efforts to shut down a nightclub that briefly operated there led to a $2.5 million jury verdict against the city last August. A Spaghetti Warehouse restaurant is scheduled to open in the building in June. The Garland, Texas-based Spaghetti Warehouse Inc. chain has spent $2 million converting the former After Midnight rap club into a 500-seat restaurant.

The Philadelphia Daily News bootjacks, those colorful hawkers who sell the newspaper from their trademark red hand carts at busy intersections, celebrated Christmas early with Italian fare. Some 120 vendors were feted at the Spaghetti Warehouse on Spring Garden Street yesterday afternoon by Daily News Editor Zack Stalberg and representatives from the Daily News circulation team. "Our bootjacks are out there every day, braving traffic and inclement weather to get the Daily News into the hands of our readers," Stalberg said.

There were nursing students, computer people, artists and waitresses all vying for a shot at maybe 15 seconds of fame. The folks from Bud Light were making the rounds filming commercials in Philadelphia yesterday and one stop was at Westy's Tavern at 15th and Callowhill streets. The novice commercial stars, many regulars at Westy's, were alternately nervous, energetic, wooden, frozen, animated and nearly professional. Donna Fleischer, a nursing student at Hahnemann University, had been eagerly awaiting her turn.

The American Red Cross has rescued victims of wars, plagues and other disasters around the world. Now, merchants who ply their trades along once-vibrant Spring Garden Street have a different sort of rescue mission in mind for the world's largest humanitarian organization: To pump some new blood into their neighborhood's ailing economy. The Red Cross is buying the old Somerset Knitting Mills at Seventh and Spring Garden Streets, and it will move its blood operations from Center City to the new site late next year.

Faced by 30 opponents who insisted their "fragile neighborhood" would be threatened, the state Department of Corrections backed down yesterday from its proposal to put a halfway house for 48 inmates awaiting parole in a now-empty building at Ninth and Spring Garden Streets. "We are withdrawing the application. . . . The building will remain vacant," a visibly annoyed Laurence Berk, lawyer for the state, told the city Zoning Board of Adjustment. The hearing was to determine whether a halfway house should go in a commercial zone.

Ten years after creating the vegetarian destination Blue Sage in Southampton, Bucks County, chef-owner Mike Jackson has rolled out Thoreau Vegetarian Grill at 1033 Spring Garden St. (215-232-9001). It's a snug, white-tablecloth 35-seater in the storefront across from Spaghetti Warehouse that last housed Palate. It's BYOB - open for dinner Tuesdays through Saturdays - until the liquor license arrives. Once warmer weather kicks in, Jackson will add lunch, a vegetable and herb garden outside his kitchen door, and outdoor seating in the lot next door.

  The Walkmen were to perform (with the War on Drugs) at the Electric Factory back in early October in support of the former's excellent album Heaven , but the show was rescheduled for undisclosed reasons. So the Walkmen are here this Friday at the smaller Union Transfer, this time with Alec Ounsworth of Clap Your Hands Say Yeah opening. The Walkmen used to be based in Philly, where two of their five members still live. The band felt guilty about the postponement and heard some buzz of discontent.

Any moment now, Alex Wesby will need to hire a booking agent. In the days before and after pacing Ben Franklin High to its first Public League basketball championship since 1984, Wesby did interviews with four TV stations. "You're a little nervous when it starts," Wesby said. "But then you remember, it's just like talking to a regular person. " This season, Wesby's basketball improvement has been outpaced only by the strides he has made in expressing his thoughts to adults.

WHAT MAKES a hot spot hot? It's not temperature, although some of the places on this list do tend to get a bit steamy on a Saturday night. It could mean a line out the door, although that could also apply to the restroom queue at the Linc (which is decidedly un-hot). In some cases, it's all about the venue. Some places are so cool-looking, we'd wanna go to them even if they were empty. In others, it's all about the crowd, the people who go there who make us wanna go there, too. Some are new - merely days old. Some have refined with age. Some have amazing cocktails, great happy hours and awesome entertainment.

Oprah Winfrey is a tough act to follow after a quarter-century, and 6ABC has chosen to fill her top-rated time slot in September with an early edition of Action News . Not only that, but the station also is planning to install an anchor threesome - Brian Taff , Shirleen Allicot , and Alicia Vitarelli - on the 4 p.m. newscast when Winfrey steps aside from her syndicated talk show. Weathercaster Adam Joseph also will be part of the show. By naming the team more than seven months out, 6ABC seems eager to grant additional exposure to its newer faces.
