Last week, Central Bucks West and Ridley met in a Flyers Cup semifinal. C.B. West dominated the game, leading 7-1 in the third period. That’s when things got actually ugly.
As shown in videos posted to social media, a fight broke out with about seven minutes left in the game. People in the crowd were shouting “Fuck him up!” The brawl continued for a while, with one Ridley player even coming from off the ice to join.
The game was called at that point, and C.B. West was given the 7-1 win. A parent wrote on Facebook decrying the Ridley team: “Since he couldn’t win the game, he tried to sabotage our season!”
Now another parent of a C.B. West teen who was injured during the fight is calling it an assault. Read more »

A Mechanic Street Mule at the Still in Doylestown
Out in Bucks County, just above the Doylestown Brewing Co. (52 East State Street, Doylestown), a speakeasy has been operating almost unnoticed for almost a month.
Run by Chris Hall, The Still is self-proclaimed Prohibition-style cocktail bar that is apparently still a pretty well kept secret.
The bar only uses spirits from local PA distilleries and have nine homemade infusions made with all local ingredients. The cocktail list covers the basics and includes some historically accurate drinks as well (which come with a lengthy explanation of their origins).
And while it’s no Hop Sing, this is definitely a cool addition to ‘burbs.
The Still is open Thursday through Saturday from 4 p.m. to midnight.
