“Drag and cabaret is a space for permission, right? Let’s be loose, let’s really be ourselves by being someone else. I think Mr. Rogers is a space for permission of feeling.,” - John Jarboe Read more of the WHYY interview at the link below. You Can Never Go Down the Drain is now running through July 1.

    Philly cabaret artist offers neighborly homage to Mr. Rogers
    "When I was very young, I had a dog that I loved very much. Her name is Mitzi. She got to be old, and she died," confessed Fred Rogers in the 1970 "Death of a Goldfish" episode of "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood." "When she died, I cried."

    Where to rent and use kayaks and canoes in and near Philadelphia
    There are few more soothing experiences than kayaking and canoeing through the calm waterways that fill the region. As you find a steady rhythm with your paddle, lapping against the water with each stroke, it's hard not to find yourself becoming fully in tune with the present moment.

Join us on Wednesday, June 27th from 6-8pm for @Gregg Moore: Chef & Potter Moore will discuss his partnership with chef Dan Barber. They are exploring how plates and bowls can cradle the experience of eating, carry the weight of ingredients, bridge the story of the cuisine. Flavor is to food as beauty is to the plate. How can the partnership between chef and potter deepen? How deep are the commonalities between ceramics and cooking? These questions and motivations drive Moore to explore the relationship between agriculture, food, and ceramics and drive his research into historical, scientific, aesthetic, and collaborative discovery. Learn more about Dan Barber here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tqGZKiOLsU8
