Square One Coffee

Has anyone tried it? It looks quite minimalistic inside but friends have raved about the coffee. I'm still partial to Good Karma Cafe, but I think it'd be nice for a change of scenery sometime.

  • Crystal A. GM of Square One Coffee Philly

    Hey Molly,

    Sorry I missed your last post! Yes, Thursday would be great! I am at the shop until 1:00 if you would like to meet me there, otherwise we can meet up somewhere else...?

  • Hi Crystal,

    I could meet you there at 1 on Thursday, or if there is some place you would rather go, please let me know. My email is molly@everyblock.com if that is easier for you in terms of scheduling. Thank you!

The Best Lunch Ever at The Reading Terminal

I'm a foodie at heart so I need to share with the world that you MUST try the Salmon from The Little Thai Market at the Reading Terminal on 51 N 12th St! It's by far my favorite thing to eat when I go to the RTM. While I'm sure it's not wild caught fish, it's darn good!

I'm a foodie at heart so I need to share with the world that you MUST try the Salmon from The Little Thai Market at the Reading Terminal on 51 N 12th St! It's by far my favorite thing to eat when I go to the RTM. While I'm sure it's not wild caught fish, it's darn good! The salmon is tender and delicious and comes with a white and brown rice mix and broccoli. I get the coconut curry sauce on it and a teriyaki on the side and it's AMAZEBALLS!!! The whole this is under $8.00 and you'll feel full for the rest of the day! Oh and prepare yourself to wait in a hella long line if you go during peak times (noon-2pm) but It's certainly worth the wait!

  • It's a little pricey, but the fried chicken is good! The Amish Food place has good burgers too.

Activists Pledge Legal Action Against Law That Silences Prisoners, Ex-Cons

Behind yellow police tape which was reinforced by civil affairs officers and bike cops, Ramona Africa – the only surviving member of the 1985 MOVE bombing – yelled expletives aimed at the embattled Pennsylvania Governor who sat on stage smiling, proud that he had a signed a bill into law which would silence Mumia Abu-Jamal and other prisoners who are/were convicted of personal injury crimes.

Behind yellow police tape which was reinforced by civil affairs officers and bike cops, Ramona Africa – the only surviving member of the 1985 MOVE bombing – yelled expletives aimed at the embattled Pennsylvania Governor who sat on stage smiling, proud that he had a signed a bill into law which would silence Mumia Abu-Jamal and other prisoners who are/were convicted of personal injury crimes.

"Ya'll looking like fools, sitting up there signing a meaningless piece of paper. If you think that paper is going stop Mumia... gonna stop this movement... you better think the f*ck again. All you did was put fuel to a fire that's burning. You will never, ever get away with this," she yelled.

“Ya’ll looking like fools, sitting up there signing a meaningless piece of paper. If you think that paper is going stop Mumia… gonna stop this movement… you better think the f*ck again. All you did was put fuel to a fire that’s burning. You will never, ever get away with this!”

Activist Gabriel Bryant, who last October was summoned to France by the French Delegation in order to build a global coalition in support of Mr. Abu-Jamal, joined Ms. Africa and more than thirty protesters today to show their opposition to a law which they say not only tramples on the First Amendment, but was born out of pure hate for the convicted cop killer and former President of the Philadelphia Association of Black Journalists.

Mr. Bryant, as did Ms. Africa, pointed out the one-sidedness of the law: victims, District Attorneys, and the Attorney General can sue people who have been convicted of personal injury crimes for speaking out publicly if it causes the victim of the crime mental anguish, but citizens don’t have the right to sue police officers and public officials whose reckless actions have traumatized them.

    I did NOT say you had no right to speak. Where did you get that? I am one who feels MORE for the victim than the criminal (the person who went on trial & was found guilty by jury & sentenced by a judge or the law). Thank you for your view.

  • Flood the Drummer Award-wining journalist. CEO, Techbook Online

    You didn't say anything about the right to speak, I was referring to the law. It limits free speech for prisoners and ex-cons. I also care deeply about victims of personal injury crimes, and they should have their rights. But at the same time, silencing another isn't beneficial to society. Everyone can learn something from someone else

After nearly 15 years of sewing for others part-time and teaching both adults and children with an original series of personal style and sewing classes, she launched a limited edition handbag and fashion accessories line in April 2012 called On 3 Designs by Julie Lange. With a focus on adding original, hand printed textiles to the collection, Lange uses striking colors and bold patterns to create her line’s signature look.
