Well, prepare to go nuts again, because the second annual Philly VegFest is headed our way soon — June 6th (sadly, the same day as Be Well Philly Boot Camp. But the good news is, VegFest goes ’til 4 p.m., so you can go afterward!), to be exact — and it looks like it’s going to be even bigger and better than the first one.

We are officially 10 days away from the Broad Street Run on May 3rd. My first one ever! I cannot believe that I’ve lived in Philly for 16 years and I have never run this iconic race — which, more than any other Philly race, is a Philadelphia institution — a single time.
The way I realized just how important the Broad Street Run is to Philly was, whenever I mentioned to anyone that I’d never run the race before, they’d react with abject shock and exclaim, “You’ve never run Broad Street?!” Every time, it was as if a New Yorker had just told another New Yorker that they’d never been to Times Square. Clearly, Philadelphians are madly in love with the Broad Street Run and I’m so excited to be a part of it. Read more »
The weekend is a comin’, folks! Which means my favorite day is right around the corner: grocery day. I love grocery shopping like most people love spa days. There’s just something about discovering a new favorite hummus or the cheapest raw honey around or the best soy milk on planet Earth that just makes me feel pure joy. And I know I’m not the only one who takes pride in their grocery store finds, right?
So this week, to help get my grocery-shopping discovery on, I want to ask you: What’s your favorite find at Trader Joe’s? The one thing you have to get every single time you go grocery shopping? Tell us what it is and why you keep going back for more. And if you have more than one favorite, feel free to share ‘em all. Now, ready, set, comment! Read more »
Got your Indego bike share key but no helmet? No worries: Today, starting at 11 a.m., to celebrate the launch of Philly’s new bike share program, Uber (yes, that Uber) is delivering brand spankin’ new Nutcase Metroride commuter helmets to Philly bikers on demand for just $10.
Here’s the deal: To get the helmet (which would usually run you $79), all you have to do is download the Uber app, if you don’t already have it, and request HELMET where you would usually request a type of car. A driver will arrive in a few minutes with your helmet (or helmets — the max is two per request), and you’ll be charged $10 for each one. That $10 will serve as a donation to the Bicycle Coalition of Greater Philadelphia, which Uber will match.. How freakin’ awesome is that? Read more »
