Families with babies and toddlers: need some new ideas in the kitchen? Join us at the Richmond Library next Saturday, 4/28 at noon for a FREE session focusing on healthy and affordable cooking for families, presented by the Free Library's Culinary Literacy Center with guest Fran Alloway! Fran Alloway is a registered dietitian who enjoys working with all ages, from Moms-to-be, our adorable babies taking their first bites to making sure that seniors are eating what they need to stay healthy. She has written curriculum for Penn State Extension, appeared on local cable stations discussing topics from feeding fussy eaters to diabetes diets and presently is a nutrition consultant with Maternity Care Coalition and the Early Head Start program. Sign up today! Call the library at 215-685-9992 or email Barbara at Taitb@freelibrary.org. This event is designed for adults, but kids of all ages are welcome. Light refreshments provided, as well as tastes of all the food!

10th anniversary beer garden party at Memphis Tap

Where: Memphis Taproom at 2331 E. Cumberland St., 19125

    10th anniversary beer garden party at Memphis Tap
    Back when beer gardens were a relative rarity in Philadelphia, this Kensington corner tavern opened one in its back yard. Ten years later, the light-strung picnic tables are just as inviting. New this year: the food truck is gone, so there's more room to hang out and the full menu is available.
