PCCBuzz: Sir Charles Barkley, Poke Deli Comes to Fairmount, Nik The Web Chick and more
Hello Philly peeps. Hope everyone adjusted back to work yesterday. I didn’t. I did submit a few columns to my outlets, but only the Biz Journal published so far. I have a few more photos to contribute from the over the weekend events, and on Sunday’s when I do my gossip/around town column I will put all the links to the events I photographed there. Let’s see what’s happening with our friends and around town with PCCBuzz …
Before celebrating at the July 4th BBQ’s Jaimi Blackburn, Jen Lightner and Sir Charles Barkley worked out at the Ardmore, Pa Planet Fitness.
The Rye Bread Cafe is barely cold at (2319 Fairmount Ave), and the Engimono (sp?) Poke & Deli is nearly ready to open in the next coming weeks.
Poke is an authentic Hawaiian dish and taking over Philly as quick as you can say “rolled ice cream” It’s a fresh sushi grade poke bowl restaurant featuring ahi tuna, salmon, or vegetarian choice over a bed of rice or salad the sign says in the window. Rye Bread moved down the street earlier this year. (1711 Fairmount Ave)
I would have loved a Panda Express in Fairmountm it’s good news for folks in Washington Square West and Market East, the old McDonald’s space at 10th and Market will soon be a Panda Express. (946 Market St.)
Just down the street will a five Below will be opening soon in the old Lit’s Building. (739 Market Street)
Excited that The Palm will be opening July 15th, they’ve stated. Can’t wait to have my favorite lasagna dish for lunch.
Congrats to Richard Bush, who was in the band The A’s. While I was in college it was my favorite band and I would drag my friends around to all their shows. He’s singing the National Anthem before Friday nights Phillies game.
Congrats to Christopher Wink, Technically Philly, and has now become the publisher and CEO of the company he founded. More about how that came about here
