Forgotten Boardwalk Releases Swell Tap Handle

forgotten boardwalk tap handleForgotten Boardwalk Brewing is one of 15 breweries on tap for New Jersey. The Cherry Hill based brewery is in build-out mode at the original home of Flying Fish.

Yesterday, the brewery released their tap handle design which features the tail of a cat.

We dig the design and the “tall tale” behind the Growler the cat. You’ll have to wait a little longer though to try the beer. Forgotten Boardwalk is aiming to have their brewery open to customers in May of 2014.

Morning Headlines: No, Singer Deniece Williams Does Not Own a Plastic-Wrapped Mansion in Cherry Hill, NJ

Denise Williams had everyone fooled. The owner of an unfinished mansion that’s now wrapped in plastic and surrounded by a metal fence told pretty much everyone she came into contact with, it seems, that she was Deniece “Let’s Hear It for the Boys” Williams, and for some reason residents and general contractor, among others, seem to have taken it on faith. Why this should have made everyone trust her is unclear unless Deniece Williams has a very good reputation for being an honest dealer. At any rate, Benson seems not to be an honest dealer — or at least, she’s unable to behave so regarding this house.

The mansion is in a state of suspended animation, with no work being done. The general contractor is owed thousands of dollars. But Williams/Benson is paying taxes on the house, and told officials she plans to keep working on it. The Inquirer was unable to locate her, but did discover she had past judgments ranging from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars.

Zoë’s Opens Four More Suburban Philadelphia Locations

zoes kitchenZoë’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.

Casino-Like Rental With DJ Station for $8,500 Per Month


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.

Developer Beats Union League and Cherry Hill in Battle Over Woodcrest Country Club

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.

Ultramodern “Logan’s Run” House With Bidet and a Bathroom Land Line


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.
