Art in the Age Featuring an Exhibit Entitled Nix Besser
This Friday, September 3rd head down to Old City for First Friday and the new exhibit at the Art in the Age store. Entitled Nix Besser (which means none better), the show features the history and traditions of the Pennsylvania Dutch. It’s all brought to life through the creations and illustrations of Rev. Michael Alan. Included are illustrations of the many heirloom cookie recipes that Rev. Alan collected from friends and family. Physical samples of those recipes will be available in the store for tasting.
Fancy a ‘Gansie?
Ok so here’s the deal: we’re taking a break from our Heart Wine Bar S & M sunday suppers this weekend (that’s spaghetti & meatball suppers, kooks) because one of our super secret operatives has brought back the spoils of a recent New England foray…some Narragansett Beer!
THE PROVIDENCE KICKBALL LEAGUE (PKL)
Ripping rules straight from the playground, the Providence Kickball League is one of the highlights of Providence's summer sports offerings.
According to Kommissioner Mike Kuhn, lead organizer of the league, anyone can join who is able to compile a team of 15 members. They compete at Armory Park on Saturdays and hold practices weekly. Narragansett Beer sponsors the team; players are often sauced up on company contributions.
"People like stuff to do that doesn't take too much effort. We call ourselves faux athletes," he said.
But the teams don't just have mean thigh muscles and a thirst for Narragansett. Each squad is branded with certain costumes during playtime. An all-girls team named "Stilettos" wears skimpy red apparel; fishnets are commonplace. "Zomboree" is an all zombie cast and "Muscle Justice" dons foam muscles and mullet wigs.

The SNAPpiest Event In Philly
The good people at Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction are putting on a Cocktail Competition and Launch Event for their new gingersnap flavored liquor SNAP, which we told you about last month.

Some of our favorite bars and restaurants (Silk City, PYT, Oyster House and Tweed, along with others) will be competing to see who can make the tastiest, most original, and prettiest cocktail. Drew Lazor (City Paper), Melissa Monosoff (Master Sommelier, Savona), and Charlotte Voisey (William Grat & Sons Potfolio Ambassador) will be on hand to judge the cocktails. $5 signature Root & Snap cocktails and complimentary hor d’oeuvres will be served, but space is limited so make a snappy reply and RSVP to Stephanie@Artintheage.com.
