Many people think of acting as a mystical gift, but Bernard Glincosky knows better. Like any skill, acting requires practice, and that’s where The Philadelphia Acting Studio comes in. At the studio, aspiring thespians bulk up their skills through a variety of classes taught by seasoned actors, producers, and directors. Himself a Hollywood veteran, Glincosky employs a stable of experienced instructors including acting teachers who have worked with the likes of Tom Cruise, Denzel Washington, Ron Pearlman, and Martin Scorcese. Classes are offered throughout the week, covering scene work, audition tactics, and how to cry on command when the maitre d' can’t find an empty table.

A distressed wood sign, like something from a sleepy Mexican border town, hangs outside Cantina Dos Segundos, a laid-back but occasionally loud spot that will transport you to a south-of-the-border siesta state. Strings of colored lights and star-shaped twinkly ornaments illuminate the exposed-brick walls and the rustic tables and chairs painted dark red, teal and yellow. To get a sense of the cocktails, try El Caliente (“the hot one”), a kicky concoction of Tequila, Triple Sex, lime juice and chile oil. Order food like a quesadilla appetizer filled with chicken or wild mushrooms, various incarnations of tacos, or entrées of a tortilla casserole or slow-cooked goat. Salsas come complimentary, in tame green and fiery red varieties.
Framed by the foul poles, vistas of the Benjamin Franklin Bridge and the Philadelphia skyline peer over the outfield at Campbell?s Field, adding a serene backdrop to the action on the diamond below. Home to the Camden Riversharks since their Atlantic League debut in 2001, the family-friendly stadium seats up to 6,425 fans and includes a 5,000-square-foot play area, where tykes can run through an obstacle course, plunge down a giant slide, or enter the speed pitching booth to mimic their favorite cricket bowlers.
In addition to the sense of perseverance and accomplishment that comes with finishing a 5K, the organizers of the Bacon Chase have added another incentive: bacon. During their two races?the 5K Piggy Pilgrimage, which is a traditional 5K, and the 0.05K Blitz to Bacon, which is a 164-foot sprint?runners can munch on unlimited bacon bits before feasting on unlimited amounts of bacon at the finish line. Runners 21 and older can wash down the savory strips of bacon with a bloody mary, and all runners get a Bacon Chase T-shirt and a signature bacon-scented bib. The festival opens at 8 a.m. and features many bacon-themed activities, plus music.
The festive day serves a greater purpose, too. Attendees will be able to register to become a St. Jude Hero, raise money for St. Jude Children?s Research Hospital, or both.
