UPTOWN BEER GARDEN 2017
EAST PASSYUNK FLAVORS ON THE AVENUE
Some Philadelphians may know this event as a food tent block party, called Flavors of the Ave. This year it's expanded to a Street Fest up and down East Passyunk Avenue called #FlavorsonAve.
April 30, 2017
Still featuring the neighborhood’s astounding array of excellent restaurants, each of which will supply small-plate versions of their signature dishes. (over 20 restaurants participating).
Tickets, which can be purchased in advance, cover tasting everything the fest has to offer — a dish from each of the restaurants plus two beers from the beer wagon — and cost $50. OR pay for each dish à la carte, with an average of $3 to $6 per item.
Of course the shops on Passyunk will be open and participating with their own deals, and music will be heard from one corner to the next!
BOSTON MARKET ROTISSERIE CHICKEN FLAVORS
"We're always looking to bring Boston Market guests new and intriguing flavor profiles that truly complement our signature rotisserie chicken. We're eager to hear what our guests think of the new Sweet & Spicy Apple flavor and are excited to once again offer Parmesan Tuscan, as it was very popular when we introduced it for a limited time in years past.", stated George Michel, CEO at Boston Market.
The Parmesan Tuscan adds a very savory, well seasoned flavor to the skin. It made me wish I could get more skin to go with the chicken under the skin. Definitely turned out to be a favorite #CinemaSneaknSnack and worth the wait!
And no, I don't feel guilty for getting two starch sides, because I'd had kale for breakfast 😜 Would love to hear what you think, please leave a comment (see video above) on T&T's facebook page, if you've tried either of #BostonMarket signature rotisseries - Le Anne Lindsay, Editor

Leeway Foundation Screening of
Maya Angelou: And Still I Rise
Thank you! We are so glad many enjoyed our film screening in Philly at the @ccpedu Continue! #Repost @tinsel_tine with @repostapp ・・・ Tonight Tinsel & Tine attended @leewayfound event at #CCP which featured the #documentary MAYA ANGELOU AND STILL I RISE. What a full and inspiring life Dr. Maya Angelou lead as a singer, dancer, activist, poet, writer and director. The doc originally aired on PBS a month or so ago, but I'm so glad I got to see it on a bigger screen in the company of others who also felt the power and love this woman gave to the world. So much about Angelou's young life I didn't know, her rape, resulting in her being mute for 5 years, that she danced at a club to make a living after having a child out of wedlock at the age of 16; that she married not one, but two white men; and made Tupac cry. But of all the stories the one I like the best is the grace Dr. Angelou exhibited when she agreed to present Pearl Baily with her Liftetime Achievement Award when many years prior, Baily had done her so wrong when she could have been a mentor in Angelou's early career. The event was followed by conversation with Philadelphia artists Ursula Rucker @urucker (LTA '08, ACG '08) [poet, activist, and recording artist], Andrea Walls (ACG '14) [writer and poet], and moderator Pia Deas (ACG '16, WOO '17) [creator of Contemporary Black Canvas and professor of African American Literature at Lincoln University] around the impact of Dr. Angelou’s life and what it means to create a spiritual and moral grounding that honors the blending of artist-activist roles. #MayaAngelou #AndStillIRise @contemporaryblackcanvas #ursularucker #Poet #activist #community #PhillyCalendar #PhillyEvent #FilmEvent #BlackArtist #MayaAngelouBiography @mayaangeloufilm

1st ANNUAL PHILLY CHEESESTEAK FESTIVAL
Non-Restaurant / Non-Food Related RECAP. I attended a Women's Brunch at a Church in West Philly, which featured several female speakers. I was taken with Stacy's speech on handling the angst of Christmas, as I've come to hate the season. Her words helped somewhat put Christmas into perspective for me.
