The Way Things Were

For a little historical perspective on the Fourth, head to the Morven Museum & Garden in Princeton, NJ. The free, family-oriented jubilee at the former home of Richard Stockton, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, will feature live bluegrass, a dramatic presentation on the significance of tea during the revolutionary era, a strolling Benjamin Franklin […]

Fourth Fireworks Among Friends

Fourth Fireworks Among Friends

The worst-kept secret around is the Riverside Symphonia’s Concert Under the Stars. This year’s edition will be held July 3. If it feels like everyone else acts like they’ve been there before—free-flowing conversations, elaborate picnic spreads, some including long tables decorated with candelabras—it’s because they have been. Tucked in at the out-of-the-way Tinicum Park in […]

Philadelphia Museum of Art Shares Some of its Collection in Newtown

Imagine encountering Vincent van Gogh’s “Sunflowers” along a bike path, or Claude Monet’s “The Japanese Footbridge and the Water Lily Pool, Giverny” in the middle of a park. Such a reality began to unfold earlier this month when the Philadelphia Museum of Art, with the support of the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, […]

All Roads Lead Back to Doylestown

All Roads Lead Back to Doylestown

That first season of “American Idol” hit like ecstacy at a sorority party. In a night, we were hopelessly hooked. Kelly and Justin lifted us out of our mundane lives, and we latched on to their fantasy as though we had stakes in it. But intense experiences are, by definition, short-lived. If you can pick […]

Paradise Lost

Nicaragua, long hidden from the outside world, offers a glimpse of what the Caribbean looked like before the tourist rush. And you can take it all in from plush resorts that haven’t yet realized that they could get away with charging a lot more. By Matt Bell Nicaragua isn’t for travelers who are shy of […]

In a town loaded with vintage, America Antiques & Design doesn’t fit the mold. Never has in the two decades it’s been around. So it shouldn’t have surprised anyone when the emergence of its offspring over the summer was a revelation, too. Compromise Lodge has been simmering for years. A brief collection of humble, turn-of-the-century […]

Treasure Hunt

Treasure Hunt

Thanks to TV, we’ve all been led to believe—or, more accurately, we all really want to believe—that there are jewels among our junk and our neighbors’ junk. As the hunt escalates, the weekly free appraisals at a Lambertville, NJ, auction house have become a sort of ground zero, a scene where fortunes can be made. […]

Your Lifestyle Update is Now Available

This eco movement has always felt a little heavy on the green and guilt and light on the convenience and comfort. But a perceptive Philly design outfit is reworking that algorithm and making the great outdoors more user-friendly. By Scott Edwards It feels counterintuitive to descend to a basement—albeit, one in a retrofitted mansion a […]

Before Them All, There Was Kimberton Whole Foods

Back before you ever heard of organic. Or grass-fed. Or free-range. Back when you thought we, as a species, had probably hit our pinnacle with the microwavable ham and cheese Hot Pocket—so, like, the mid-eighties—a quaint, 400-square foot farm store called Kimberton Whole Foods opened to little fanfare in Chester County. Thirty years later, we’re […]

Living the Dream

On a picturesque cattle farm along the Delaware, a couple of well-travelled chefs are carving out a genuine farm-to-plate existence. And they’re looking to set more places at their makeshift farmhouse tables.

Heart + Soul

An intimate session with a soaring chef yields profound respect for a humble meal (and the chef). By Scott Edwards Thirty of us wedged ourselves into the long, narrow kitchen. The class usually runs far smaller, so accommodations are being made on the fly. But there’s nothing that can be done about the tight confines, […]

A Strange New Twist in a Long History

A Strange New Twist in a Long History

When The Stockton Inn closed abruptly in late July, it seemed to catch everyone on the outside looking in off-guard. After all, this was a place that’s been operating, more or less, for the last two centuries. Overnight, it was shuttered, only a simple post on its site—“Closed for repairs and restorations”—offered by way of […]

The refined industrial space will feature exposed steel beams and brick walls, a polished concrete floor, gas lanterns and oversized factory doors. But the centerpiece of the 50-seat restaurant […]

We’ll call it the Fairy Gardening Craze because it sounds cuter than Sci-Fi Vegetation Madness, even though a cluster of these string gardens resembles a scale model of a set from the next Star Wars, particularly these latest iterations crafted by Fritzie Ege and Ken Hay, owners of Greenology Organic Living (greenologyorganics.com). There’s a rawness […]

An exhibit featuring Jeanne Bessette and Marlene Rye will open at the Studio, in New Hope, with a reception Oct. 11, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. A fire destroyed Rye’s studio in August. She lost all of her supplies and about 30 paintings—an $8,000-hit in all, she estimates. Through the suggestion of a friend, […]
