    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.

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.
