Everything Fresh, a Small Supermarket With a Big Heart, Opens in the Gayborhood

Everything Fresh

Oh boy: this is going to be a game changer.

I just got in from the opening day of a super cute new supermarket located right at 1222 Walnut Street, Everything Fresh. Imagine taking Whole Foods, reducing the size, and cutting the price. That’s what you’ve got at this quaint new grocery that is going to save a lot of Center City residents from heading over to Wegmans or SuperFresh. Read more »

Hey you, remember around two years ago when North Bowl said they were going to be opening an enormous sister bowling center 19 East Oregon Avenue? Unless you live down in Pennsport/Whitman, frequent Tony Luke’s or commute on I-95, chances are good that you forgot about it.

Well, consider yourself shaken from your bowling slumber: North Bowl and South Bowl just posted some fine interior shots of the project on Instagram. Let’s just say that they’re the type of pictures that get us all kinds of giddy inside.

White Christmas at Sweetwater Farm and Grace Winery

Monika Brass, The Bryn Mawr Trust Company and FJ Leto, Inbound Marketing.

Vicki and Chris Le Vine, along with The Broadway Dreams Foundation (BDF), hosted the Fifth Annual White Christmas at Sweetwater Farm and Grace Winery (50 Sweetwater Road, Glen Mills, PA) on Sunday, December 14, 2014. The festive old fashioned piano party and cabaret featured performances by Broadway’s brightest stars (some of who took the night off from Broadway to be there.) and talented Philadelphia area BDF students (who have dreams of reaching Broadway one day.) Each year hundreds of students received valuable musical theatre training through BDF programs offered in partnership with Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts

The BDF program is also offered in other cities around the country, but the Philadelphia program is the largest.

The evening was directed by Craig D’Amico (Fiddler on the Roof), with musical direction by Dave Barrus (Les Miserables), and choreography by Greg Graham (Billy Elliot). Featured performers included Leslie Odom, Jr. (Smash), Quentin Earl Darrington (Ragtime), Luke Hawkins (West Side Story), Donnie Kehr (Jersey Boys), Ginna Le Vine, Jen Perry (Kinky Boots), Ryann Redmond (If/Then), and Noah Rickettes (Beautiful: The Carole King Musical).

The Broadway Dreams Foundation is a non-profit organization dedicated to training, mentoring and providing career opportunities to the next generation of musical theater performers. Intensive programs are offered nationally throughout the year, led by an exceptional faculty of high-profile Broadway professionals. BDF offers significant scholarships to hundreds of participants each year, ensuring that all qualified students are able to realize their Broadway dreams regardless of their financial status.

Lynnewood, a three-story house resting atop 3.5 acres and vaunting the respect of the Chestnut Hill Historical Society, is now under contract. As one would imagine, the home has architectural pedigree and is the site of a scene in Stealing Home, a romantic comedy starring Jodie Foster (more on that here).

Movie trivia aside, the home boasts high casement windows, French doors, and a master suite with a porch and view of the grounds. There’s also a 5-car garage and guest apartment.

See the gallery below…(sorry, no Jodie cameo)
