First Time’s the Charm for Local Soccer Champs

East Falls, we have a winner!

    First Time's the Charm for Local Soccer Champs
    In only its first year of existence, the East Falls traveling soccer team stormed through the Philadelphia Parks & Recreation League last year like Maradona through a B team defense (sorry, I imagine the kids these days prefer Ronaldo or Messi) and pulled off an upset win to take home the title for the 10 and under division in October.

    A sucker for a sweet smile and a bad attitude hopes this time it'll be different in a short story about love in wintertime. "I'm never doing this again."

When Oysters Were Peanuts

They sure loved their oysters at the Hohenadel Brewery on Indian Queen Lane. We found hundreds of shells at the site this morning, unearthed by a construction crew digging up the site of the old brewery for condominiums.

    When Oysters Were Peanuts
    They sure loved their oysters at the Hohenadel Brewery on Indian Queen Lane. We found hundreds of shells at the site this morning, unearthed by a construction crew digging up the site of the old brewery for condominiums. That many fresh oysters would be worth thousands of dollars today at an upscale center city restaurant, but in 19 th century bars, oysters were the peanuts of the day.

    We've got three "Queen" lanes in East Falls - Queen, New Queen, and Indian Queen - but does anyone know who this "Queen/queen" is? Any Googling fool can tell you that Philadelphia's Queen Village was named for Sweden's Queen Cristina, but our local sovereign's identity is not so apparent.

Lager, Our Hometown Brew

Lager vs. Ale:  What’s the difference?

    Lager, Our Hometown Brew
    Strictly speaking, every beer is either a lager or an ale. Ales were here first, an ancient brew. Top-fermented, known for fruitiness, bitterness, and high alcohol content. Lagers are bottom-fermented, thanks to a special strain of yeast developed by Bavarian monks in the 1300's.

    I think we can all agree that snowmen made out of socks are rather adorable! The best part is, you can make them with just few household items, so it is also a good reuse/recycling as well as a 3D art lesson! For this craft, you'll need a pair of old socks that are crew length, or longer.
