    Can Kiki Vodka survive in Pa.'s crowded craft spirits market?
    Talk about needing a drink. John Jameson had just decided to enter Pennsylvania's rapidly-growing craft spirits industry when the double whammy hit. "I signed my SBA loan the same week I found out I was going to have a child," recalled Jameson, 38, now the father of a 2-year-old daughter, admitting that his decision to press on with a plan to start a vodka distillery left him thinking, "I must be nuts."

    Why some Philly neighborhoods attract creative eateries, and some don't | Craig LaBan
    Reader: Your review of Cadence sounds terrific, but how do South Kensington and Fishtown get so many interesting eats and the Graduate Hospital/Fitler Square area so few? Craig LaBan: You've touched on an ongoing mystery to me, as well: Why, of all the fast-evolving neighborhoods, has the Graduate Hospital/Fitler zone accumulated so many underwhelming, unadventurous places?
