I would highly encourage anybody who is looking for an authentic Philadelphia experience to go to the Blue Horizon this Friday night for boxing. Yeah, it was an awesome spot for Quizzo Bowl and it is undoubtedly an awesome spot for boxing. But even more than that, it is the best place to people watch in Philadelphia, bar none. Guys dressed like extras in 70s Blaxploitation flicks sit side by side with doctors in pleated khakis, North Philly teens in hoodies and oversized white tees wait in line for hot dogs next to meathead frat boys in Abercrombie shirts. I have never been anywhere in Philadelphia that hosts such a crosscurrent of our population. I am definitely planning on going. Lemme know if you are. Here’s the info on friday’s bouts.
