What’s your favorite locally-roasted bean? I’ve tried three recently myself: old favorite La Colombe as well as new jacks Green Street and ReAnimator. Is it blasphemy to say I prefer La Colombe? It may be my personal preference, but no matter how much coffee I brew, I just find that La Colombe has a better, […]
Ah, spring. It’s so nice to be outside again. Nothing quite like running Charlie ragged in some nice parks. Thing about nice parks in Philadelphia is that most of them are in West Philly. Helen and I may be riverward chauvinists, but, man, I wish Penn Treaty Park were as nice as Clark Park. You know […]
Going to a great brewery and restaurant is better when your baby isn’t peeing through his diapers. What a difference a year makes, right? Picked up a growler of Iron Hill’s Biere Noir out in West Chester yesterday. Had a few glasses last night. Delicious! Can’t wait to get back for a refill.

When Helen and I moved to Port Fishington, or Flat Iron as it’s properly known, from the hustle and bustle of Two Street, we were in for a rude awakening. There was practically nothing here!

There’s that one sandwich that’s really delicious, but not much else that really stands out on the (recently reconsidered) menu. The draught list is amazing, although it’s like doing surgery with a shotgun; put enough beers […]
