Snaps and claps echoed through 4 Fathers in Old City like basslines at last Thursday’s lively evening of drinks, fellowship and spoken word under the auspices of Philadelphia Black Gay Pride. An assembly of skilled wordsmiths, such as the night’s winner—the aptly named Ms. Fierce—took to the mic, blessing it, the judges and the crowd with their wicked rhythmic repartee. Be sure to catch Ms. Fierce at PW’s free “Drink City Live” mixer at 4 Fathers this Tues., May 6, from 5 to 7pm. RSVP at philadelphiaweekly.com/event-series. // photos by J.R. Blackwell
