    Philly's got a surprising variety of options for subterranean drinking, from smoky dives to hip dance clubs and faux speakeasies to sushi counters. Beneath the city sidewalks, you can catch a game, watch a live show, bowl a few rounds or play darts.

Protest planned after second cyclist struck in Center City

She is the second bicyclist hit in the area in three weeks. On Nov. 29,  Emily Fredricks a 24-year-old pastry chef was killed when a private garbage truck struck her on 11th Street near Spruce Street.

A protest is scheduled for Tuesday on 13th Street south of Pine where participants will put their bodies between the cycling lane and the driving lane – the area where protective barriers would go into place.

    Protest planned after second cyclist struck in Center City
    Becca Refford remembers biking through a green light, the flash of a truck turning sharply towards her and the rest is mostly a blur. "I went through the intersection and suddenly there was a truck," Refford, 24, said from a hospital bed Saturday. "I got super, duper lucky."

    Upon first glance, it may seem odd that in Philadelphia, the intellectual heartland of the American Enlightenment, the first drama did not play until April 1754, over seventy years after the city's founding. That play, The Fair Penitent by Nicholas Rowe (1674-1718), was licensed for twenty-four performances, with the warning that the license would be revoked if anything in the production was deemed indecent or immoral.
