    West Philadelphia needed an upscale restaurant, she says
    On Thursday, Barbara Devan plans to open Tasties Restaurant, on 52nd Street north of Girard Avenue. With velour seats, tufted banquettes, granite tables, designer lighting, stylish tableware, and a menu of intricately plated soul food and a bar list full of cocktails, it's arguably the fanciest restaurant in West Philadelphia outside University City.

    Dozens ordered to leave West Philly apartments ahead of sale
    Dozens of residents in two West Philadelphia apartment buildings received letters April 9 telling them to move out by April 30 when the doors would be locked and utilities shut off. The letter said the city was ordering the landlord to cease operations. The city, however, said Tuesday that it issued no such order.

Neighbors: THIS IS ILLEGAL. Actually several aspects of this story indicate illegality. If you are a renter your landlord MUST have and be able to show you a rental license. If they don't have one, you do not have to pay rent AND they may owe you back rent. Furthermore, evictions must go through a legal process, landlords can not force evictions without doing so. Contact us if you have questions. We're not experts but we can help get answers if you need them.
