    Pastors rail against historic tag for Germantown Boys and Girls Club
    In a move that neighbors called puzzling, a group of Germantown-area religious and community leaders denounced a possible historic designation for the Boys & Girls Club of Philadelphia, what they called a "hindrance" to plans for a new, state-of-the-art club with an ice-skating rink and music studios.

    Employee's dirty fingernails, cat and mouse poop close Philly eateries
    Cat and mouse poop found in the same location? I wonder who won that battle. My money is on the cat. In this round of Clean Plates, Philadelphia food inspectors were busy citing restaurants for an employee's dirty fingernails, leaky sinks, falling tiles and holes in walls.

Members of my staff and I had an incredible tour of The Pennsylvania School for the Deaf this morning. Steeped in history and gearing up for its 200th anniversary in 2020, I look forward to visiting again and learning more about how we can partner in the future. Many thanks to the Head of School, Peter Bailey and his staff for their time and insight!

    Which Philly-area spin studio classes are worth the hype and heavy price tag?
    Huffing and puffing on a bicycle, inside a dark, windowless room - this did not sound like my idea of fun. Who would ever spend $30 to endure that torture? Yet, many people do - so many that the number of spin studios in the Philadelphia area is too long to count, with brand-new locales like South Street's Revel Ride continuing to add to the options.

    On Thursday, Barbara Devan plans to open Tasties Restaurant, on 52nd Street north of Girard Avenue. With velour seats, tufted banquettes, granite tables, designer lighting, stylish tableware, and a menu of intricately plated soul food and a bar list full of cocktails, it's arguably the fanciest restaurant in West Philadelphia outside University City.
