Someone in the Rutgers University social media department is probably getting a good talking-to this morning. Over the weekend, on the occasion of the Penn State vs. Rutgers football game, the official Rutgers Football Facebook page ran photos of Rutgers fans wearing “Ped State” t-shirts, mocking the school for the Jerry Sandusky scandal.

Where We’re Eating: AmeriThai

NEW
If you’re going to open a Thai spot within walking distance of Circles — still the best Thai within city limits — you’d better bring your A-game. Unfortunately, the folks behind AmeriThai, a new spot next to Nick’s Charcoal Pit don’t have a clue what they’re doing. From gummy satays and the grease-oozing, undercooked slop pile they’re trying to pass off as a Thai corn cake, to the kind of service that will make your blood boil, to the flies swarming my plates, I couldn’t wait to pay my check and walk out the door. And when a cockroach scurried by my feet in the dining room, that walk became more of a run.

The Philly Outrage Meter for the Week Ending September 12, 2014

During the week ending September 12, 2014, Philadelphians, it seemed, were most outraged over the whole LeSean McCoy 20-Cent Tip at PYT saga, which garnered approximately 90% of the total outrage according to our precise calculations. What remains unclear, however, is whether more people were outraged at LeSean McCoy for leaving the 20-cent tip, or at PYT owner Tommy Up for publicly outing him for it. But suffice to say, PYT has been working hard to scrub all of the new one-star Yelp reviews it has received since the McCoy backlash began — reviews left by people who have never been to PYT.

Precisely 1% of the outrage is being directed at the outrageously bad Philadelphia schools.

And the rest of the outrage (9%) is divided between outrage over changing the name of Fishtown to Northern Liberties II, the outrage over bad Philly cops, the outrage over Atlantic City, the outrage over slave jokes, the outrage over what is and what is not “torture porn,” and the outrage over the Ray Rice situation.

Donald Trump May Rescue the Trump Casinos in Atlantic City

trump-sues-trump-940x540

It has been years since Donald Trump was actively involved with the Atlantic City casinos that bear his name. He resigned as chairman of the casinos in 2009 and recently sued to get “Trump” off of their decrepit, dying shells. But now, with Trump Plaza closing in a week and the Trump Taj Mahal not far behind, it looks like the controversial tycoon may be ready to dust them off and make another go of it. Read more »
