Where did the Trees Go at 17th and JFK, Happy Birthday Mimi, Ben Simmons,

Hello Thursday, August 3. Summer is slipping by, but we’ve had a lot of fun this year haven’t we?

Nicole Brewer: T-1 week til I’m back on CBS Philly! It will be extraordinarily difficult to leave my little ones, but I know it will get easier. (Right?!?!) And I’ll have the support of my colleagues and friends, especially fellow Momma Kate Bilo. Thank God for girlfriends who just “get it.”

Happy birthday to my niece Mimi Bateman. Here she is with my sister Crista and her hubby Michael.

Missing something, seems the City removed the planters along JFK Blvd. Hope they’re going to do something about the mismatched
concrete, it looks ridiculous.

Mimi
And I hope they saved the trees as well. Where am I going to sit now, I guess I’ll go up to 18th and JFK they have a wall to sit on.

Timberland opened a Tree Lab Experiential Store yesterday at their King of Prussia store.
The experiential Tree Lab concept store will feature carefully curated product collections and brand stories in a gallery-style setting that will completely change every six weeks.  Similarly to an art gallery. Hope it comes to the Center City store as well, I love that place.

Mimi
Congrats to Josh DeMarco who is a finalist in BehindTheChair’s “Haircut of the Year” competition.

Looks like Lombard Cafe (700 Sansom St.) is nearly opened. Michael Klein wrote about it earlier this year.
Now when is PJ Clarke’s opening across the street at the Curtis Center?
I did stop by Craftsman Row around the corner for my favorite Buffalo Cauliflower last week.

Mimi
After the Car Show Sunday night, Mike and our friends headed to Barcelona Wine Bar on East Passyunk
What a surprise. The place was gorgeous, the staff was very nice, the food divine. Mike and I enjoyed the above dish Parrillada, which was $26.50 a person and so delicious.

James, the bar and restaurant Launched a New Menu for their Gastropub #FoodPorn

James, the bar and restaurant Launched a New Menu for their Gastropub
HD1_1398 (Custom)

According to my friends at Wikipedia: The term “gastropub” was coined in 1991, when David Eyre and Mike Belben took over The Eagle pub in Clerkenwell, London. Traditionally, British pubs were drinking establishments and little emphasis was placed on the serving of food. If pubs served meals they were usually basic cold dishes such as a ploughman’s lunch. I think we all can agree, especially the Yelpers of Philadelphia, that James, the bar/restaurant at 1835 Arch Street has delicious food.

Recently they updated their menu with new choices, at affordable prices. I stopped by and took a few photos of the new menu items.
