Zoë’s Kitchen — the Mediterranean-inspired chain restaurant where most of the food is grilled — already had three local spots (Collegeville, Marlton and Newtown) when it opened yet another outpost in the Greater Philadelphia market in May of this year in Bryn Mawr. That must have worked out because there are now four more to come: Malvern, Willow Grove, Cherry Hill and Wayne. It seems people like grilled food — especially when someone else is manning the grill.

There is nothing quite like this seven-bedroom, five-bath house in Cherry Hill, NJ–certainly not when it comes to available rentals. The vastness of the space and the stone floors, walls and ceilings gives it a hotel or casino vibe, and the surplus amenities–four dishwashers; a home theater; a wet bar; a DJ station; a 42-inch fireplace; a pool table; ping-pong; much, much more–makes it feel as though it’s time to get the party started, or at least install an old-school startup. The landlord would like to rent the place fully furnished.
The contested Woodcrest Country Club was won at auction this morning by Cherry Hill Land Associates, which prevented Philadelphia’s Union League–as well as Camden County–from acquiring the land. The Union League had pledged to keep Woodcrest as a golf course, while the mayor and county officials were interested in preserving the land as green space.
This is a terrible blow for Cherry Hill’s mayor, who launched a fierce campaign to raise enough money for the bid. It’s unknown what the developer, a subsidiary of First Montgomery Group AMO, plans to do with the land, though they have said it won’t be golf-related.
The 1976 futuristic thriller Logan’s Run is known mainly for two things: miraculously bad acting, including that of Farrah Fawcett, and an ultramodern set that was miraculously not bad. In fact it was even, dare we say it, almost Kubrick-esque.
Of course, it hit all the right notes: all-white interiors; mirrors and metallics; perfectly symmetrical edges, whether rounded or flat; and the ridiculous one-piece clothing we’ll apparently all be wearing in the future. But it was also a product of its time, with some deliciously 1970s-era design motifs–including Michael York, who was a design motif of his own.
In the wake of yesterday’s report that Philadelphia’s Union League will be one of the bidders at the May 20th auction of the Woodcrest Country Club, Cherry Hill Mayor Chuck Cahn and the Township Council announced that they too will bid for the club. As explanation, Cahn and members of the Council sent a letter to neighbors outlining their priorities.
