How often do we have the opportunity to incorporate handcrafted art into our daily lives? Each hand carved piece of Chris Johnson’s wooden wonders has the ability to transport us to days gone by. I found myself actually insulted when a Friend dared stir a styrofoam cup of commercial yuck with one of Chris’ spoons. No!! That stirrer is for the French Press only ! Watch his transformative skills on his inspirational you tube video here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCUE3rgUotJQ0mdbFBBxXNEg Follow him on Instagram @thebeardedcarver for updates and visit his etsy for a preview of his amazing craftsmanship: https://www.etsy.com/shop/TheBeardedCarver Enjoy the wonders of kuksa, spoon, and bowl carving when The Bearded Carver joins our Spring Market on Sunday April 29th .Remember we’re on the Upper Level of Vault and Vine : 3507 Midvale Avenue. The Market takes place on both April 28th and 29th from 10 A.M. until 4 P.M. See you there!

Walk This Way

To heck with heeling! Sometimes a dog just needs to sniff around. Naomi shows us how to follow Ducky’s nose to control her fearful reactions.

    Love For All
    New brewery offers balanced beers with lots of heart that everyone can fancy. Just a brief bike ride away. Enjoy in the Falls this June! Love City is a Callowhill brewery with a local connection - they made their world debut with the EF Beer Garden last April, thanks to Jill Dougherty, whose brother Mike Tramontana is a linchpin in this new craft beer operation.

A Sit Down with Satan

The Prince of Darkness dishes on his life, his home, his plans  – and that Wissahickon swimming hole with his name on it.

    A Sit Down with Satan
    The Prince of Darkness dishes on his life, his home, his plans - and that Wissahickon swimming hole with his name on it . Many millennia ago, the sparkling waters of Cresheim Creek carved a steep ridge of schist into a basin roughly 15 feet deep and 20 feet wide that the first humans here dubbed a powerful, mystical place...

Rescue on Ridge

A historic designation could be on the way for a favorite landmark at Ridge and Midvale. 

    Rescue on Ridge
    A historic designation could be on the way for a favorite landmark at Ridge and Midvale. Last fall's demolition of the beautiful old "Catfish Cafe" building on Scotts Lane sent local preservationists into overdrive. In particular, the stock green Mason's building in the heart of our riverfront district seemed particularly vulnerable, with its caving roof and rickety fire escape.

A Fool for Beers

These five spring seasonals are brilliant.

    A Fool for Beers
    April's a time of showers, pranks, and more importantly BEER! Yes, my Falls friends this is that special time of year when we once again venture outside to enjoy the beauty of our exquisite neighborhood, hopefully whilst sipping on an alcoholic libation. It's also a time when many brewers start releasing great seasonal selections.
