So, last week, after months of extra evening light, daylight savings time ended; we all had to fall back once again (personally, it was more of a stumble back); and now, even though your house clocks may be correct, you’re internal clock is completely effed. Well, it’s time to cheer up my dreary dudes and start looking at the bright side of DLST. Because as Kenny Chesney and Uncle Cracker so eloquently put it
The sound of an alarm clock is probably one of the worst sounds in the world. Seriously, there’s not much worse than being pulled out of a sound slumber, well except for maybe finding out that your girlfriend is cheating on you with your brother (ouch, sorry pal).
A new restaurant, a wine auction for charity, and a display of gingerbread houses to get you in the mood for the holidays!
So, you’re no longer a kid. You may have noticed this on the day you were finally able to stop asking your older sibling to buy you a case, or maybe it happened the instant you realized something scarring, like what that mirror was doing hanging above your parent’s bed. It happened, so embrace it (the growing up thing, not the other thing). But, just because
Choosing a Halloween costume is a critical decision. There are tons of different categories to choose from. You’ve got gory costumes, inflatable costumes, serial killer costumes, funny costumes and of course everyone’s favorite, the highly inappropriate yet extremely clever costume.
This week we’ll hear about a new restaurant in Kensington with an in-house butcher shop, a “cake pops” convention coming to Philadelphia, and an event in support of a very special school.
If you’re looking for a real scare this week, or just want to hear some original Jamaican tunes man, get yourself into the 80’s mindset (just the mindset though, no one wants to see you in your Zumba’s) and head over to North Star Bar.
Brookstone is now selling an awesome product to drown out your roommates stomping, singing, and other noises you’d rather not hear… The new 2.4Hz Wireless TV Headphones not only connect to your TV, but also to your stereo, computer, and mobile device.
Hadas Kuznits reports on two Halloween-related festivals on Saturday, October 25th, and a new restaurant opening at the Navy Yard.
I bet if we told you to think of something that’s both terrifying and vintage, creepy dolls and your parents’ prom pictures would be the first two things to pop into mind. But, what if we told you about something older and even more terrifying than those vintage pictures? Just imagine one of the first penitentiaries in the country, where prisoners were held in solitary confinement for their entire stay, getting turned into a haunted house for Halloween (told ya there was something scarier than seeing your mom with a mullet).
We get it; the old school way isn’t always the best way. Take technology for example. Everyone knows that iPhones are way better than those old, giant, brick like cell phone contraptions that didn’t fit in briefcase, let alone a pocket (even though it does looks like the iPhone 6+ is bringing us back in that direction). However, when it comes to food, Abe Fisher proves that some good old fashioned traditional food takes the proverbial cake.
It’s a beer theme on this week’s “What’s Cooking on 1060,” as Hadas previews a new craft beer brewery in Old City, a new gay sports bar in center city, and a Halloween beer crawl.
Long ago were the days of playing in a sandbox and running away from girls with cooties. Even though you’re still running away cootie ridden girls (good call, you don’t want to catch the adult version), we know the days of unlimited playtime have are gone and have since been replaced with sitting in a cubicle staring at a computer screen for hours on end.
The sandwich has been a staple in your diet for as long as you can remember. As a kid your mom would make you a P.B & J, as a teenager you devoured countless B.L.T’s, and then came your college days, when your sandwich habits consisted of scarfing down a bacon, egg and cheese every Sunday morning after drinking too much alcohol and shamefully sex-iling your roommate every Saturday night.
Local food merchants are taking part in the Old City Fest on October 12th. A center city restaurant is hosting a whiskey expert for a “scotch class,” and a new vegan restaurant is set to open.
