18th-century acting superstar David Garrick has a birthday on February 19; he would have been 401. Though he may no longer be a household name, Garrick is partly responsible for contemporary culture’s reverence of Shakespeare, as well as for the genesis of the Rosenbach’s Shakespeare collection which visitors may encounter while exploring of Dr. Rosenbach’s library.

The Franklin Institute’s chief bioscientist, Jayatri Das, breaks down a new blood test that was recently approved by the United States Food and Drug Administration to improve concussion diagnosis. http://bit.ly/2ojeptf

    Will the First Blood Test for Concussions be a Game Changer?
    Here in Philadelphia, we're still relishing the thrill of long-awaited victory as the ticker tape from the Eagles' Super Bowl parade flutters from the trees. Even as we watched the game, however, we couldn't escape the ever-present risk of brain injuries in football, as several players suffered game-ending hits.

Rittenhouse Square tower plan tweaked to add hotel-length stays and $2.5M-and-up condos

Southern Land decided to offer stays of as little as a few nights at a time in furnished units within the 48-story tower at 1911 Walnut St. in response to demand for hotel-style accommodations in the upscale neighborhood, development manager Brian Emmons said in an interview Friday.

The company plans to open a sales office in the coming months in nearby 1845 Walnut St. to market the 54 units planned on the floors set aside for condominiums, which are being marketed as the Laurel, Emmons said. Groundbreaking is expected by spring 2019.

Open door led to Oscar’s Tavern closing by Philly Health Department

Seeing the door ajar is why the Health Dept. sanitarian decided to stop into the tavern at 1524 Sansom St.

    Open door led to Oscar's Tavern closing by Philly Health Department
    Updated 10:25 a.m. Oscar's Tavern reopened for business Thursday afternoon after a 48-hour hiatus due to health code violations. But if it hadn't been nice out last Tuesday, the Center City dive might not have been forced to close in the first place. Because if the temps hadn't hit 72 degrees - a record high for Feb.
