Boldface Nov. 11: A.D. Amorosi rounds up the local gossip

Last month Anthony Maglio Jr. announced that his family’s famed sausage production facility at 3rd and Pattison — its home for 67 years — was moving to North Jersey, while the South Philly location would become a gourmet Italian market. Market at Maglio’s opens Dec. 3, selling Citterio meats, Cacia’s bread and, of course, the family’s sausage. Another contributor to the new market is self-confirmed former mobster, now chef, Angelo Lutz. He’s creating a Maglio sausage meatball, which he’ll also sell on QVC.

After testing her routine on an enthusiastic, invite-only audience at Stella Rossa, Allentown’s “MissFit” Tess Stumpf will perform “Bodybuilding Burlesque” at the 9th and Walnut restaurant one Friday a month, starting this week. The Borgata aerialist and founder of Infatuation Dance Company matches muscle-flexing and weight-lifting with striptease (just to the tassels, gents) influenced by childhood infatuations like “My Little Pony.”

When Bette Midler announced her 2015 tour, everyone missed the fine print: The tour is co-produced by Live Nation and Larry Magid Entertainment Group. Philly’s Magid was the boss of Electric Factory Concerts, which became part of Clear Channel Concerts, then SFX, and eventually the local Live Nation division before he split to form his own company. Tickets for Midler’s Philly date (June 16 at the Wells Fargo Center) go on sale Nov. 17.

The Roots’ Tariq “Black Thought” Trotter joined the Mural Arts Program Saturday to dedicate a mural at 20th and Ellsworth to childhood pal Dr. Shawn L. White, a producer and musician who worked with The Roots and forged youth outreach programs for HIV/AIDS awareness. He died last year.
