‘GIRLS NIGHT OUT’ ON HILL: Selected Chestnut Hill businesses will be open from 5 to 8 p.m. the first Wednesday of each month, beginning Nov. 4. Called “Girls Night Out,” the monthly event is anticipated to reach shoppers whose schedules conflict with the traditional business hours. Conceived in a meeting of the Chestnut Hill Merchants Association, whose Stag and Doe nights during the Christmas Season have proved so successful, “Girls Night Out” will not exclude men from these shopping events. As a further enticement, Artisans on the Avenue, 8440 Germantown Ave. will provide the services of Psychics Extraordinaire each month, whose troupe of Tarot and palm readers have provided psychic entertainment in the area for the past 20 years. Charla Ayers (seen here) will be the reader Nov. 4. More info: 215-381-0582.
