Philly2Philly followers can win tickets to an advance screening of ‘The Hunter’ starring Willem Dafoe Thursday, April 12th.
Starting Thursday April 5th, we will be asking trivia questions relating to 'The Hunter' star Willem Dafoe on our Twitter and Facebook pages. The first to answer gets passes that admit two for the screening!!
Warm weather, open road, top down – all before scoffing down some Cape Cod-style seafood to boast about. Even if you can’t put the top down, I would love for you to experience the newly reopened, Seafood Shanty. Detour out of Philadelphia area for the day and take the scenic route to Wyomissing, Pa., where there is more to brag about than being the hometown of Taylor Swift.
Reopening after more than 18 years, Seafood Shanty has caused a huge draw for Philadelphians to head to Wyomissing for its unsurpassed seafood tastes. Under new ownership, the nostalgic brand has brought back original recipes of some of its best items- New England Clam Chowder and Key Lime Pie while adding a new, modern flair with a raw bar and new items like Oyster Flights, Seafood Martinis and Table Towers of seafood meant to be shared. Great for families to bring your children, siblings or younger relatives back to a classic restaurant they’ve never tried- but brings back old time memories for you.
Make a day trip out of your seafood cravings and stop by the GoggleWorks Center for the Arts in Reading. The six buildings consist of studios, dance, music and galleries. GoggleWorks also has a film theatre on campus, showing current movies with state-of-the-art sound equipment. If you’re craving some sports, head to FirstEnergy Stadium to catch a baseball game of the AA-affiliate of our beloved Phils- the Reading Phillies. You’ll leave Reading feeling stuffed with food and culture.
In recent weeks, the Trayvon Martin shooting case has been growing legs and captivtated much of the attention of Americans and the news media alike.
It all started last month when Florida resident George Zimmerman, a neighborhood watch leader, shot Trayvon Martin after following him in a wealthy neighborhood. Zimmerman claims he followed Martin because he looked suspicious and was even told by police to stop following him.
Either way you slice it or dice it, Zimmerman clearly was in the wrong for shooting him. The Sanford, Florida Police Department has handled the Trayvon Martin case poorly and let this situation fester by not arresting Zimmerman, claiming he's protected by Florida's "stand your ground law." Since then, the Police Chief in Sanford, Florida has resigned.
These same Americans should instead focus on the violence, which is prevalent within innner cities. Turn on ABC, CBS, NBC, or Fox on any given night and you'll hear about shootings, rapes, muggings, car jackings, etc. It goes on all over the country within cities and tens of thousands of neighborhoods across the nation. If Americans would go out and protest these sorts of things and focus their energy on the horrors within our neighborhoods, we'd see gang violence and urban violence drop 90%.
Again, Trayvon Martin's story is one of tragedy, but it's abominable that this has become a white-on-black thing. It's a tragedy, which should have been prevented. Period.

I was having a quick brunch with a girlfriend, and she was talking rather candidly with me about her ‘sexcapades’ with her new beau. She was telling me where, how often, how so, foreplay, all play, role play, all of it. I sat and listened to her and was genuine happy for her and he as they were obviously enjoying one another immensely, and then some.
I was sipping my mimosa when an older woman, she had to be in her late 60’s, came over to our table and said, “Excuse me, but I couldn’t help but overhear your conversation.” I immediately thought about the most recent items of discussion and was wondering if she heard my friend recant their game of “on the loose circus monkeys” (Don’t ask. I didn’t even want the details). We turned around and my friend politely said “I’m sorry were we too loud. I have a tendency to forget my indoor voice sometimes.”
She looked at us both and with a small smile said “Oh, no you weren’t too loud, I just wanted to tell you that I find your sexually perverted antics shameful and you alone could be the reason that this world is going to hell in a hand basket.”
Now A) I’ve always hated that phrase because I don’t know what the hell a hand basket is. If they mean a ‘purse,’ they should say “purse,’ and B) From what realm of the universe did this woman hail in which it was acceptable to judge someone so harshly and unleash such wicked statements unprovoked? I stared dumbfounded at the “cohunes” on this woman. Granted, there were some stories told involving a glue stick and rain ponchos (which were relayed and I still haven’t decided if it’s worth the reoccurring mental image,) but no matter what degree of “R Rated” material she was dishing, this woman (in my opinion) had no place to judge anyone.
My friend may be a sexually driven woman (and as Ludacris would say “a freak in the bed”), but it does not open the gates of judgment from strangers or friends for that matter. We are all entitled to practice our own virtues and forge our own paths through whatever methods we choose. Some will be good for us, some learning experiences, but all in all they will be OUR own choices. The constant negative judgment needs to be curbed back so we can again begin to recognize the fundamental beauty in those who “wax the car” a bit differently than you. I really don’t want to believe that we’ve reached a place as a society that we’re cool with just walking up to total strangers, judging them, and then TELLING them to boot. We all are guilty of judging in our heads and hearts, but when you take that a step further and tell someone of your angst for them who you know nothing of, my God where else is there to go from here?
By no means am I saying I never judge someone, I totally do. I’m just saying after being approached by such a brazen individual, it really made me think about how that kind of negativity adds nothing to the world. I do have to say the positive which did come out of being approached and reprimanded by the Hall Monitor was that it forced me to recognize my own judgmental tendencies and take a step back before I dive right into an opinion. I don’t know where they’ve been in their lives, or what drives them.
And who knows? We could have been rehearsing a play…or scripting some freaky porn.
Ladies, ever wonder where the phrase "tapped that" originated? Fella's, ever wonder if girls had slumber parties with nighties and pillow fights? Yeah, well me too. The Vagina MonoBlogs takes a proactive but honest point of view on some of these timeless questions and offers some perspectives to apply...or avoid for that matter!
On Saturday March 10, the Oxford Valley Mall held a Zumbathon to benefit the Bucks County Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA). The YWCA is a national organization dedicated to eliminating racism and empowering women, and supports under-served women and their families. Zumba is known for being an intense calorie burning workout that anyone can do and have a fun doing it. This exciting Latin- inspired aerobic program involves a combination of dance and fitness moves. This year’s event had a fantastic turnout. Over 120 participants danced together to raise over 200 pounds in food and supplies as well as $600 to fund YWCA educational enrichment and social service programs in the Bucks County community.

During the next two weeks (Monday-Friday), Philly2Philly will post Flyers related trivia involving their all-time tough guys. If your answer is voted the best of the day by the Philly2Philly panel, you will receive passes to an advance screening ‘Goon’ starring Sean William Scott (Stifler from the ‘American Pie' movies) on Wednesday, March 28th at AMC Neshaminy 24 (3900 Rockhill Drive) in Bensalem, PA at 7:30.
How many of you missed church today? (and not on purpose!) Fall back. Spring ahead (except Arizona and Hawaii). That’s what we have been told from as far back as fifth grade. And yet I still wonder why is Daylight Savings Time still such an issue for people?
Now I can understand not knowing exactly what day it happens. However, unless you’re hiding under a gigantic rock, have no television, computer or cell phone older than 1998, there is no excuse for not knowing when Daylight Savings Time is about to transpire.
If you have a television, just go to the DVR. You can always look in the bottom right hand corner of your computer for the time, and if you have a new cell phone, it updates this automatically. Even some clocks these days update this on its own!
There you have it: just some basic ways to tell when exactly Daylight Savings Time has arrived. Or, you could just remember that it’s 2 a.m. on the second Sunday in March to 2 a.m. on the first Sunday of November. This year it’s November 4th!
