Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction Logo T-Shirt
Over the past few weeks I’ve gotten really into Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction (often shortened to Art in the Age). I’ve featured them in the past, but I never realized they were located in Philadelphia and have a flagship retail store here (which I will be going to soon). They just do a ton of cool stuff, my favorite being their crazy awesome organic and historical liqueurs (a big part of my birthday present to myself). I bought Root, and Snap, which are both incredibly delicious. They also have a third, Rhuby, which was unfortunately sold out when I went to the liquor store. The two that I got are amazing though, and I think they’re fairly well distributed at this point, so you have a chance of finding it in your area. I heartily recommend that you check out the descriptions for all of them–they are indeed as delicious as they sound (if not more…).
Fermentation Festival shows a different side of food
The 2011 Kennett Brewfest is sold out, but patrons can still enjoy the many tastes that the fermentation process creates at the third annual Fermentation Festival on Friday, Oct. 7.
Golf heavyweight ECCO bows a transitional Junior Street line that goes from course to playground.
THE FIRST HYBRID golf shoe to hit the men’s market, the ECCO Street, was notably worm by two-time PGA Tour Player of the Year Fred Couples at the 2010 Master’s Tournament. Despite Couples coming in sixth place that year, the sidewalk-to-course pair had heads turning almost instantaneously and imitators scrambling to develop their own versions.
Philly, Without the Cheese
No, Philadelphia has not suddenly turned into Miami. But between the town's two raddest neighborhoods - Old City and Northern Liberties - you'll find stores that get it right, kick-ass BYO restaurants, and bars that care more about local craft beers than the Eagles game. Call it Philly's awakening.
Best of the Fest
Grab your stein and fill it high with a hearty Oktoberfest brew
In this holiday of abundance, of overflowing steins and bars and dirndls, let's pause to consider the fuel of this debaucherous blaze: the beer. The time is Oktoberfest and the style is Märzen. Named for the month in which it's brewed (March), this caramel lager spends its summer fermenting cool and slow—before refrigeration, the beer was stored in Bavarian caves—emerging dark, rich and autumnally mature in color and taste in the fall.
