Love City Brewing named a beer after Pathways to Housing PA — the program that helped find homes for people with addiction in Kensington

 1023 Hamilton Street, Philadelphia

    Why Love City Brewing named a beer after Pathways to Housing PA - Generocity Philly
    At least a few of those companies have some charitable slant. Yards donates a portion of sales from its PYNK beer to the breast cancer-focused Tyanna Foundation, for instance, and the maybe-opening-soon Triple Bottom Brewing's entire business model is predicated on social good. Love City, too, has community in mind.

    Mt. Joy - Tickets - Union Transfer - Philadelphia, PA - September 14th, 2018
    These dreams are more than paper things," sings Matt Quinn on Mt. Joy's infectious folk-rocker "Astrovan," a warm, yearning bit of road-trip philosophy that posits the existence of a Deadhead Jesus cruising the dusty highways of the countryside, nursing a roach on his way to only He knows where.

Have you heard of History Hub? Launched in January 2016, History Hub is an active community of researchers and experts which has become a game-changing way to provide access to information and diverse sources of expertise.

This week, Mx. Rogers comes to the neighborhood.

    Philly's queer cabaret examines the truths (and myths) of Mister Rogers' signature kindness
    The first black-and-white frames of Morgan Neville's Won't You Be My Neighbor show the familiar Fred Rogers at the piano, coolly attempting to place value and meaning on his approach to communicating with children by way of modulation. As a trained classical composer, he knew that some key changes could be managed with ease, and others could not.
