Dudes who love to work out, gather ’round. We’re about to drop some serious shopping knowledge on you.

Happy shopping! Read more »
If you’ve ever been at a bar and thought to yourself, Man, I could really go for an ice-cold kombucha right now, then settled for a cider — because what bar has kombucha? — then Martha, a new bar opening at the corner of York and Martha streets in Kensington, will soon be your favorite watering hole.

Well the final totals are in and the check has been cut: In all, sales from the SRT Ale resulted in a donation of $4,018 to the Schuylkill River Heritage Area. Read more »
As many of you know, the lovely Emily Leaman, our Be Well Philly editor, had a (very, very cute) baby recently and was on maternity leave over the summer. This meant that I was running the show around these parts and, not going to lie, that was stressful. But it also meant I got to post up in my very own office with windows (okay, okay, Emily’s very own office, temporarily mine) all summer long and enjoy this beautiful thing called sunlight. That was wonderful.
So when Emily returned, which I couldn’t have been happier about, I moved my stuff back to my cubicle, located in the saddest, darkest corner of the office.

If you’re more of a treat-driven fitness fanatic than an “I just genuinely love working out” workout person, take note: Starting this Saturday, October 3rd, the Market & Shops at Comcast Center (1701 JFK Boulevard) is hosting an eight-week-long flash boot camp series where you pay $10 per class to get your sweat on, then get a $10 gift card to use at the Market & Shops in return. So basically, you get free food from Di Bruno Bros (or Sook Hee’s Produce or, if you’re feeling indulgent, Termini Bros) just for working out. Ah-mazing, right?

Uh, yes, please! Read more »
