Councilman Domb is proud to see Esora and Daniel, students from the Career and Technical Education program at Benjamin Franklin High School (Philadelphia), starting their 5-week internships with PRDC Properties LLC, working on re-developing the Heid building at 13th & Wood into apartments. Councilman Domb encouraged PRDC CEO David Perlman to offer internships for Philadelphia public school students as the company works for a year and a half to convert the former hat factory into more than 100 apartments. Domb regularly reminds local business owners that they should provide internships to current students and hire graduating students from Philadelphia's public schools. “We need qualified people,” said Domb. “So why not use own and teach our own — from Philadelphia, born and raised in Philadelphia — to work in the companies in Philadelphia.”

BZ BZ, oh what you do for American theatre! Artistic Director Blanka Zizka will be a part of a American Theatre magazine panel of immigrants and first-generation Americans working in the theatre to discuss their work and what it signifies in an age of rising anti-immigrant hysteria and violence.

    AT Live Event! Stage Migrations: Immigrants and the American Theatre
    On May 23, AT senior editor Diep Tran will moderate a conversation with Blanka Zizka, Carmen Rivera, Ed Sylvanus Iskandar, Maria Goyanes, Ngozi Anyanwu, Immigrants and refugees are woven into the fabric of American identity, and American theatre has always reflected that, from Yiddish theatre to El Teatro Campesino to and the Ufot cycle.

Did a Chinatown restaurant steal the secret sauce?

That month, Huang and Liang opened Chu Shang Spicy, at 925 Arch St., under the legal name Laoma Philly LLC. The New York restaurant’s corporate name is Laoma Spicy LLC.

Name disputes among Chinatown restaurants are not uncommon. After Xi’An Famous Food opened at 902 Arch St. in 2013, it received word from the New York restaurant of the same name. It later was renamed Xi’an Sizzling Woks.

In another case, a settlement was reached three years ago to separate the rival restaurants called Dim Sum Garden. The one at 1020 Race St. uses the Dim Sum Garden name, while the original restaurant, at 59 N. 11th St., is called Tom’s Dim Sum.
