So Long and Goodnight, Eagles

It was a good run, wasn’t it? It’s hard to feel too much anguish about the Eagles being unceremoniously booted from the playoffs by the juggernaut that is Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints. I mean, it sucks that we aren’t going to the Super Bowl, obviously, but can any true fan deny that we have been living on […]

Can You Save $$$ on Your Philadelphia Homeowner’s Insurance?

Homeowner’s insurance is a necessity when you own a home, but it is unfortunately one of your priciest bills. Traditionally bundled in escrow with your land taxes, this monthly payment can cost just as much as your mortgage! Obviously, you need the coverage – god forbid you should experience a house fire or a natural disaster, your insurance would be […]

Our Fave Loft District Condos: 2019

For those who love the feel of New York City-esque loft dwellings, the “Loft District” of Center City just may hold a place in your heart. Most of the buildings that house these condos were former warehouses or industrial buildings that were redeveloped for residential use, but retain their open, airy feel.

Our Fave Logan Square Condos: 2019

Once upon a time, well-heeled Philadelphians held the motto that it was Rittenhouse Square or nothing. In the past several years, however, several other tony quarters have emerged. One of these is Logan Square. Once a spot known only by a lucky few, this well-kept secret has become a haven for luxury townhomes and condos. Logan Square is the heart […]

OH YEAHHHHHH: Eagles Are in the Playoffs!

THIS IS NOT A DRILL. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. The Philadelphia Eagles are soaring back into the playoffs after steamrolling the Washington Redskins with a shutout 24-0 win yesterday. This, combined with the Minnesota Vikings losing to the Chicago Bears (playoff math is complicated, yo), catapulted the Eagles, who have had somewhat of a […]

Soothe Your Holiday Woes With Popeyes’ “Emotional Support Chicken”

When fortune and favor are not smiling upon you, where do you turn for solace? Some people go to church. Some people have a drink. Others need a hug. But, on a fairly universal level, few people can say that three pieces of fried chicken don’t turn that frown upside down. Such is the thinking if chicken chain Popeyes, which […]

Ski Masks On as Eagles Vie for Playoff Berth

Above: actual surveillance image of Nick Foles at work 😉 Last year, it was Crisco and dog masks. This year, it’s the ski mask. The new symbol of the Eagles Nation’s playoff hopes comes in the form of a menacing-looking balaclava, like the kind that old-timey bank robbers wear. The ski masks are meant to show all and sundry that […]

Prepare to Wawa Like You’ve Never Wawa’d Before!

Tomorrow promises to be a banner day for Philadelphians: the world’s biggest Wawa is opening in Center City. I repeat: THIS IS NOT A DRILL. The Wawa Nation has been waiting for this for a very long time. Ever since the beloved Philly-based convenience store chain revealed its plans for the enormous storefront at 6th and Chestnut, there’s been an […]
