Phillies are the toast of the town, again

They get standing O's wherever they go.

Phillies are the toast of the town, again


Maybe it's because everyone has Phillies on the brain, but reports of player sightings are rampant.

A sampling of Friday-night doings:

Pitcher Kyle Kendrick with friends for dinner at Davio's followed by G Lounge.

Shortstop Jimmy Rollins and first baseman Ryan Howard backstage at the Powerhouse (Jay-Z) show at the Wachovia Center with Michael Vick (who?) and DeSean Jackson of the Eagles.

Second baseman Chase Utley and rightfielder Jayson Werth with wives at Union Trust. As they got up, their fellow diners gave 'em a standing ovation.

The night the Phillies clinched the pennant, pitcher Cole Hamels and wife Heidi hosted a lavish do for his teammates at the top of Two Liberty Place. (See my INQlings column on Sunday for more details.) But not all the players were up on the 57th floor. Howard had other ideas. He made a postgame phone call and got the new Old City lounge Recess to open for him, friends and family while DJ Arun spun.
