Two South Jersey coffee entrepreneurs have joined forces to boost their businesses.
A startup called Revolution Coffee Roasters, in Collingswood, is supplying beans to the Barrington Coffee House on Clements Bridge Road in Barrington. The coffee house re-opened in March under new ownership.
"This is jumping a hurdle. It can mean everything, in terms of exposure," says Stephen McFadden, 44, of Barrington, one of Revolution's three owners.
But better signage on the two major East Coast highways serving the city itself would be even better.
As anyone who's travelled north on I-95 from Baltimore or south on the NJ Turnpike from NYC knows, Philadelphia is an afterthought, an Interstate orphan. One might be forgiven for thinking that Wilmington, Trenton and Camden are where these two iconic highways lead; signage for Philadelphia is so minimal it barely exists.
Cook's largely one-man campaign to restore this overlooked, underappreciated Camden County Park building has since enjoyed little success, however.
"I feel like I'm getting a runaround," says Cook, 35, who lives in Cherry Hill and is disabled by a neurological disorder.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame has short-listed Hall & Oates for induction. It's not a lock for the Philadelphia-cured blue-eyed soul duo.
At In The Mix, pop critic Dan DeLuca notes the stiff competition - Nirvana, the Replacements, Kiss & N.W.A. for starters.
Philly.com has put up a poll, asking: what song of theirs is your favorite?
Energized, looser and far more focused than in her initial encounter with Chris Christie, Barbara Buono tried to redefine the popular incumbent during their second and final debate Tuesday.
With polls showing the governor sailing majestically toward re-election, the state Senator from Middlesex County roiled his shining seas a bit during their 90-minute joint appearance at Montclair State University. Buono's lively barrage of barbs even jostled Christie's calm, although the proudly acerbic governor never lost his cool, dodging deftly and managing to land a few, too.
In the evening's first five minutes, Buono characterized Christie as a bully allied with a "Boardwalk empire of New Jersey bossism." The governor was visibly displeased.
A developer will break ground Saturday for a long-awaited residential development in Haddon Heights, NJ.
Bob Meyer Communities, of Medford, plans to build 27 single-family homes on a seven-acre expanse of ground overlooking Camden County's Haddon Lake Park. The new neighborhood will be called Glover Mill Village, taking its name from the historic textile mill that once operated on the site; a $50,000 state grant will underwrite development of a one-acre park adjacent to the homes.
"It's the largest development we've had in our town in recent history," Mayor Ed Forte says, adding that the houses are expected to sell for $400,000 and should attract buyers from inside and outside the borough.
Open house tours are exercises in vicarious living. They’re great for snooping and seeing how the .001 percent lives.
This Sunday’s Center City Residents Association offers folks a chance to visit one of the city's true residential jewels, the former home of art patron and bon vivant Henry McIlhenny, who died in 1986.
Andy Warhol once said of McIlhenny, a former curator and board chair of the Philadephia Museum of Art, that he was "the only person in Philadelphia with glamour.” He was certainly one of city's only denizens who owned an Irish castle.
Chris Christie hasn't changed his (or my) mind about marriage equality.
But I'm glad we had a chance to talk about it.
New Jersey's Republican governor was in Philadelphia Friday to meet with the Inquirer's editorial board. His Democratic challenger -- state Sen. Barbara Buono, who supports same-sex marriage -- visited while I was away, but I sat in on the session with Christie.
