‘Destination Frankford’ issues call for artists Revitalize. A City Planning Commission project aims to help artists discover Philly’s Frankford neighborhood.

As Philadelphia’s demographic and technological landscape continues to shift, many neighborhoods that were traditionally manufacturing hubs have become havens for artists and artisans. Northern Liberties, Kensington and Fishtown have all seen an influx of young creative types, due in part to the neighborhoods’ industrial building stock and (formerly) low rents. Now, armed with a $550,000 grant from ArtPlace America, officials with the City Planning Commission hope Frankford can be transformed into the next creative oasis. Planner Ian Litwin, who wrote the “Destination Frankford” ArtPlace grant, said the project stemmed from the Philadelphia2035 Lower Northeast District Plan. “Frankford is kind of the original Northeast Philadelphia,” he said. “It’s got the el. It’s got sort of a really great historic building stock. Then there’s the Globe Dye Works, which is a reused factory. So our idea with the District Plan was sort of to focus on Frankford’s assets. Rather than come up with some grand vision for Frankford,

Officials hope Frankford will be the city’s next emerging artist community. / CHARLES MOSTOLLER, METRO Quoted

“The way people work is different now. It’s not all office workers anymore. I think that the city, as a whole, can attract artists and I think Frankford can use its resources to attract them. Because if Frankford doesn’t, then someone else will.” Litwin the idea was almost like targeted intervention. So, take Frankford’s assets and build on those. Take Frankford’s liabilities and turn them into assets.” The plan calls for cre-

ative signage and a pop-up shop in a vacant storefront to showcase the works of local artists. “The signage is important because if you get off the el in Frankford and Education

you’re not from Frankford, you pretty much don’t know where to go,” Litwin said. “The streets are really crooked, mostly one way, so it’s kind of hard to navigate your way around the neighborhood. And then the storefront, not only is it going to create an attraction for people to come visit but when we’re done, the building owner is now going to have a space that’s more marketable.” The commission also issued a request for quotation for artists to create a public sculpture in Wom-

Litwin said planners are seeking to restore Frankford, once a hub of industrial manufacturing, into a place where products are created. “Frankford used to make a lot of things,” he said. “And now it could be a place for industry again, but it’ll be a different scale. That’s sort of what we’re focusing on. So it’s not strictly art as much as it’s industrial art, design, creating things. Our web design firm is from Frankford. It’s a place to make all different kinds of things, so that’s what we’re trying to market Frankford as. It’s a little different than your typical artists’ community.” rath Park. “We’re trying to shed light on Frankford, and hopefully we can attract more artists and people to move to the neighborhood,” Litwin said. “Because other than a couple of artists who actually live in Globe Dye Works, most of them don’t live in Frankford. And we feel like that kind of art scene is moving up the el and it’s sort of the next logical location.”

Charged. Grand jury indicts cop, ex-cop for alleged strip search A grand jury brought charges against former police officer Joseph Harvey, 39, and current officer Sean Cahill, 34, according to an indictment unsealed yesterday. Harvey is charged with the deprivation of civil rights, while Cahill is charged with making a material false statement. According to the indictment, Harvey on Oct. 8, 2009, while still employed as a Philadelphia police officer, instructed

a victim — identified in court documents only as “M.C.” — to remove all of her clothing. He then allegedly made her sit naked while he masturbated. Cahill is accused of falsely claiming he was with Harvey and that Harvey was never alone with the victim. Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey announced yesterday Cahill was suspended for 30 days with the intent to dismiss. METRO

DA withdraws case against Rev. Brennan No charge. An accused child molester will not be charged after the victim’s death. The prosecution of Rev. Robert L. Brennan for sexually abusing an 11-year-old boy over a four-year period has been withdrawn. District Attorney Seth Williams announced yesterday that his office was prepared to put Brennan on trial, but with the death of Brennan’s victim who had stepped forward, the case lost its evidence. “In this situation we thought that there was not enough independent evidence, circumstantial or direct, to continue with the prosecution of Father Brennan,” Williams said.

What is the School Reform Commission? SRC. The board oversees the school district, and that matters to Philly taxpayers.

Perfect day for a wheelie in the park

Kareem Koger, 12, tries a wheelie at Dickinson Square Park in South Philly. /CHARLES MOSTOLLER

This is why Philadelphians should take an interest in the School Reform Commission, the upcoming appointment of a new chairman and how it governs the city’s schools: “We’re paying a lot of money for it,” said Zack Stalberg, president and CEO of the Committee of Seventy. “As long as it’s your money, you might as well have an influence in terms of how it’s spent.”

The SRC is a five-member group that acts as the decision-making body in terms of public education and how education dollars are spent. The board determines policy for both public and charter schools. The board decides how to spend more than $3 billion of taxpayer dollars, and how to fix public schools, which helps draw and keep people in the city. “Nobody would say the result of that spending is terrific,” Stalberg said. “If it’s going to get better, then the SRC is really the provider of oversight and is going to be the one that sets the bar for [Superintendent William] Hite or charter schools or anyone else in public education.”

Quoted

“As long as it’s your money, you might as well have an influence in terms of how it’s spent.” Stalberg The governor appoints three commissioners, and Mayor Michael Nutter appoints two. The former SRC chairman, Pedro Ramos, resigned this week citing family issues after serving two years as the commission’s head. Ramos was appointed by Gov. Tom Corbett.

Who runs the city schools? At one time, city schools were governed by the city. But in 2001 the state handed the district over to the SRC due to financial and performance issues. So the state controls our schools, right? “There’s a lot of talk about state control of the schools,” Stalberg said, “And that’s handy, but not quite true.” The governor appoints three members, the mayor appoints two. “The state does not control the schools,” Stalberg said. “The SRC controls the schools.” Recently there have been discussions about disbanding the SRC, but Stalberg said that question won’t be a hot-button issue until the 2015 mayoral race.

White House official fired over anonymous tweets Remorse. He told the website Politico that he regretted his tweets. A senior White House official who was helping negotiate nuclear issues with Iran has been fired after being unmasked as the acidic voice behind a Twitter account known for its insults of public figures at the White House and on Capitol Hill, a government official said on Tuesday. Jofi Joseph was director of nuclear non-proliferation on the White House National Security Council staff, but for more than two years sent hundreds of anonymous and abrasive tweets using the handle @NatSecWonk. He was fired last week after he was caught, the official said. In his Twitter biogra-

phy, now removed from the social networking site, Joseph described himself as a “keen observer of the foreign policy and national security scene” who “unapologetically says what everyone else only thinks.” As the widely followed @NatSecWonk, Joseph speculated anonymously about the political motives and career moves of administration officials he worked with. They included Ben Rhodes, President Barack Obama’s spokesman on national security issues. This month, Joseph tweeted that Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state, “had few policy goals and no wins” in the Middle East. He agreed with Republican Representative Darrell Issa, who has relentlessly pursued Clinton for administration actions after last year’s attack on the U.S. diplomatic post in Benghazi, Libya.

Teen pleads not guilty in murder of Mass. teacher

Police investigate the scene near the woods where the body was found. / NICOLAUS CZARNECKI, METRO

Evidence. Police arrested the teen after a review of his statements and video surveillance. A young high school teacher was brutally murdered and her body dumped in the woods near a Massachusetts school 20 miles north of Boston yesterday, allegedly at the hands of her student. Philip Chism, 14, of Danvers, was ordered held without bail after pleading not guilty during his arraignment in Salem District Court. He is accused of killing Danvers High School math teacher Colleen Ritzer, 24, of Andover sometime Tuesday night and dumping her body in a wooded area near the school. Chism didn’t speak during the hearing.

His lawyer, Denise Regan, successfully argued in court for funds for a forensic evaluation to assess Chism’s “competency, mental state and any psychiatric defenses.” Few details about the murder were released yesterday, but a police report said that Chism was charged with murder “based on his statements” and evidence found at multiple scenes at the school. The report also said that investigators learned that Chism assaulted and disposed of Ritzer’s body by reviewing surveillance footage from the school. Essex District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett said yesterday that blood was discovered in the second floor bathroom of the school, but he did not say how she was murdered. Law enforcement sources told ABC News that Ritzer was stabbed; however, officials did not

The incident started as a pair of missing persons reports after Chism, who is originally from Tennessee, did not return home from school and then Ritzer was reported missing after she didn’t answer her cell phone. Ritzer’s body was later discovered in the woods nearby and Chism was found by police at about 12:30 a.m. walking along a local highway.

Ride with a view. Firm to offer excursions to Earth’s stratosphere Hoping to cash in on a growing appetite for adventure, an Arizona startup has unveiled plans for a balloon ride to the stratosphere, offering passengers about two hours of space-like views from 19 miles above Earth. World View, an offshoot of Paragon Space Development Corp., plans to start selling tickets at $75,000 within a few months, said Chairwoman and President Jane Poynter. The company expects to begin flight tests of a demonstration vehicle this year in Arizona and could be flying passengers within three years, Poynter said. Initially, six passengers and two pilots would be aboard a pressurized capsule that is still under development. The FAA has determined it must meet the same safety requirements as a manned spacecraft orbiting Earth.

Where space begins The FAA said it took no position as to whether an altitude of 30 kilometers constitutes outer space, but that Paragon’s capsule will need to be capable of operating in space. •

“At Paragon’s intended altitude, water and blood boil, and an unprotected person would rapidly experience fatal decompression,” the FAA wrote in a letter to Paragon.

By comparison, rides aboard SpaceShipTwo — a suborbital sixpassenger, two-pilot vehicle owned by Virgin Galactic, an offshoot of Richard Branson’s Londonbased Virgin Group — is expected to reach about 68 miles.

The street scene is made up of a very small collective of “loyalist royalists,” passing American tourists and journalists showing the best of British by forming an orderly queue for quotes from the “superfans.” “I came up with the title the ‘Magnificent Seven’ for Prince George’s godparents,” gushes a proud John Loughrey. It’s the tame pinnacle on an otherwise placid occasion for the royal enthusiast. Yes, it’s all incredibly civilized. All of the hype surrounding the “Great Kate Wait” at the Lindo Wing, St. Mary’s Hospital in London three months ago has diluted into a linear line of palace wallwatchers. METRO WORLD NEWS

The ‘Golden Few’

Terry Hutt Terry Hutt, 78, is a retired (former soldier) from London.

Did you stay outside the palace overnight? “Yes, I came here at 11 on Tuesday and slept on the street around the corner.” Why are you here? “This is history for everybody, and Prince George will be our future king in 50 years’ time or so.”

Royalist fan Terry Hutt RICHARD PECKETT, MWN

Are you disappointed that it’s a quieter affair than his birth? “No, the baby is born and people are busy these days — you can’t expect people to come out for every event. After all, the ‘golden few’ — that’s what I call the royalist fans —

are here.” Have you brought a gift? “Yep, I’ve brought a little rubber duck. I’m hoping to give this to William or Kate to put in George’s bath tomorrow.”

Quoted

“I spent three nights on the streets waiting for the buildup to the christening.” Loughrey

Pauly D’s baby mama drama Congratulations to Pauly D on that baby he just learned he has! The “Jersey Shore” star has a five-monthold daughter, Amabella, with 25-year-old Amanda Markert, a former Hooters’ girl who has also worked as a VIP hostess. According to sordid tabloid reports, the two had unprotected sex just one time in Las Vegas and now they have a wee bundle of joy (and by “joy,” I mean “drama”). “I’m proud I’m a father. I am excited to embark on this new part of my life,” Pauly D told TMZ, which is about all you can say when your ex has filed a

paternity suit and you’ve already taken a DNA test. Pauly’s “Jersey Shore” co-star, and now fellow parent, Snooki, offered her congratulations. “YAY so happy for Pauly!! Now [her son] Lorenzo has a girlfriend! Pauly will be an amazing father,” she told Us Weekly. MELINDA TAUB

Katy Perry and John Mayer are getting so serious that news of an engagement is all but inevitable at this point, according to Us Weekly. “Everyone knows it’s just a question of when John will propose,” a source says. Perry and

Mayer, who have been dating for more than a year — with a threemonth break earlier this year — “realize they must be together,” the source adds. “They Skype and text all day. John always checks in before bed.”

It’s a ‘Smash’ -ing affair for Katharine McPhee

Talking points

Lohan acted ‘insanely belligerent’

Apparently Lindsay Lohan doesn’t need booze to get into trouble during a night on the town. The troubled actress was reportedly “insanely belligerent” after an all-night party in a private karaoke room at a New York City bar, according to the NY Daily News. While Lohan was overheard in-

sisting she wasn’t drinking, her hangers-on drained a bottle of Jameson whiskey and left the room littered with bottles and trash, sources say. Lohan is said to have pleaded with the staff to keep the bar open once closing time hit, and when the staff refused the “Mean Girls” star reportedly summoned the police and complained that she and her friends had been help captive in the karaoke room.

McConaughey out for ‘Fifty’ A whole lot of actors are being considered to replace Charlie Hunnam as Christian Grey in the “Fifty Shades of Grey” movie, but not Matthew McConaughey. “I’ve heard of it, yeah. I don’t even know what the book is about,” he tells E! News when pressed on the subject. “I’d be making up an answer if I told you any more.”

“American Idol” alum Katharine McPhee has been caught locking lips with her former “Smash” director Michael Morris after an intimate lunch date, according to Life & Style. The only problem? They’re both married — McPhee to performer-

Lupita Nyong’o is hitting the ground running when it comes to her film career, making a startling and attention-grabbing debut as the mysterious, wildeyed Patsey in “12 Years a Slave,” a performance that’s already earning a ton of awards speculation for the Nigerian actress. There are worse ways to start off. When you get a shot at a role like this, in a film like this, with a director like this, what’s your first reaction? [Laughs] When I auditioned for this role, I was just about to graduate from Yale. It was the first time that I was allowed to audition for professional things, and “12 Years a Slave” was the first audi-

tion I put on tape. After the audition it dawned on me — Brad Pitt is producing this film and Steve McQueen [is making it]. It was kind of like a slow realization of how major auditioning for this thing was. But it also felt completely improbable that I would get the role. How do you approach material as intense and visceral as this? It was about being present. Patsey in the script is described as being “effortlessly sensual.” In the book, Solomon says that Patsy “had an air of loftiness that neither labor nor lash could rid her of.” I was reading James Baldwin’s “The Fire Next Time,” and I found this thing he says about sensuality. He says,

Why do you think it took so many nonAmericans to give such an honest look at such

an unspeakably horrific part of American history? I don’t think it was by design. I don’t think Steve was like, “I don’t want any Americans!” But at the same time America is made of immigrants. The African-American slaves came from Africa, the white slave owners were Irish and German and English. So I don’t think that highlighting our non-American-ness does the story any sort of favors or injustice. For me, as an actor, I feel like it is my job to portray things that are outside of myself, to truthfully believe in circumstances that are not my own. Otherwise my career will be very short, playing some middle-class Kenyan. [Laughs]

Next level

How much has your life changed? Well, it’s changed in one way. I get to wear really cool clothes. [Laughs] But I must say, I have such a good team of representatives, and they’ve been very good at preparing me for this at a reasonable pace. And I’m in such good company with the rest of the cast. I can learn from them how to do this part that I have no training for. They don’t teach you this side of things in drama school.

“To be sensual, I think, is to rejoice in the force of life itself and to be present in everything that one does, from the effort of loving to the breaking of bread.” And that was Patsey for me. That’s what made her so sensual, the fact that she was present. And she’s present because she has this volatile master. She never knows what he’s going to do next — what he’s going to require or inflict. So that was the lesson I took going in. I just need to be there. The humiliation and the heartbreak that I’ve been living, experiencing, will reveal itself.

Broadway meets ballet Balance. Michael Trusnovec talks about doing “deathdefying lifts.”

MICHAEL TRUSNOVEC HAS BEEN PRINCIPAL DANCER WITH THE COMPANY SINCE 1998. PROVIDED

Starting down the path toward a career in dance, Michael Trusnovec was most attracted to the theatricality of the Broadway stage. But when he saw his first performance by the Paul Taylor Dance Company while in college, Trusnovec took a detour from the Great White Way. “All of the technique — the physicality melded with the emotional performance aspect that I love about the Broadway side of dancing — that met really well in Paul’s work,” Trusnovec recalls. “It seemed like a good fit for me.” Trusnovec joined Tay-

lor’s second company in 1996 and moved to the main company in 1998, where he’s stayed ever since. A native of Yaphank, N.Y., he began dancing at age 6 at a school in the same Long Island strip mall where his parents ran a Carvel Ice Cream shop. “My sisters and my best friend went to the dancing school and I would watch them and do all the choreography in the hallway,” Trusnovec says. “The teacher encouraged me to come in and actually take the class. Reinforcement for something makes you feel good. So I kept dancing because it felt good.” Soon to celebrate its 60th anniversary, the Paul Taylor Dance Company, led by the 83-year-old

eponymous choreographer, will perform four Philadelphia premieres to kick off Dance Celebration’s 31st season at the Annenberg Center. The program features two Taylor classics: “Fibers,” a rarely-revived quartet piece

from 1961 set to the music of Arnold Schoenberg; and “Profiles,” a highly physical 1979 piece about the relationship between two couples. “Profiles” is one of two pieces on the program in which Trusnovec will perform. “The music is screechy strings and the movement has a little bite and tension to it,” he describes. “It’s an extremely difficult dance. You really have to listen to the music as well as pay attention to the other person to survive some of these death-defying lifts and balances. But it’s super rewarding when it works out well.”

Following Meek Mill on Twitter in recent weeks has been like trekking the Oregon Trail. It’s been the land of both opportunity and speculation. A few weeks ago, Meek Mill’s handle was abuzz with photos of the rapper and Nicki Minaj joyriding on four-wheelers. To the casual TMZ fan, that meant the two were hot and heavy. Turns out, they were just collaborating on a new music video for the track, “I Be On That,� featuring Minaj, Fabolous and French Montana off Mill’s latest mixtape, “Dreamchasers 3.� “We just wanted to get crazy on some four-wheelers,� Mill says, “and have some fun at the same time.

ENTERTAINMENT goes by the name of Wonton Soup shouldn’t be a surprise. Mill has been at the forefront of putting out experimental music, going back to his “Bloundhoundz” days. He’s unleashed a plethora of mixtapes (versus just one studio-produced album), and that’s not by coincidence. Mixtapes provide a better canvas for a true artist. “Mixtapes? Yeah, they are experimental or different, I guess,” he says. “It’s not the championship album. It’s more like a late regular-season game, or a playoff game or a semifinal game in the tournament.” That doesn’t mean that Meek Mill doesn’t want to ride the throne. His lone studio album, “Dreams and Nightmares,” reached No. 2 on the Billboard 200 and took the top spot on Billboard’s top rap albums when it was re-

leased last October. Mixtapes and Meek Mill go together like Kendrick Lamar and beefs — wait, too soon? (Mill and Lamar have been feuding in recent weeks.) But while the Philly-born rapper says he loves the freedom that mixtapes provide, he knows what puts the gourmet “whiz wit” on his cheesesteak. That’s why he’s already working on a new studio album. There is no target date for it, but Mill casually mentions a very unofficial wrap party of either the first quarter (January-March) or the second quarter (AprilJune) of 2014. “Of course we have plans [for another studio album]. I’m going to get one,” Mill says. “It’s very important to keep my fans engaged. I’m working on it daily for my fans.”

Neutrals are your friends.

You can never have enough men’s shirts — nothing is cooler than a girl in her boyfriend’s shirt.

3

Own a vintage pair of jeans — the history behind them gives the jeans an authenticity that you don’t get from brand-new pairs.

Invest in an army jacket. It’s so versatile. You deďŹ nitely have to try — but never too hard.

Meet the new Madewell Shopping. Your go-to brand for tomboy-cool is going back to its roots with a new designer.

Madewell’s new head of design, Somsack Sikhounmuong, is leading the charge to focus J.Crew’s sister brand into doing what it does best: chic staples for the downtown set. “The kind of things you remember your cool mom or your cool big brother wearing — varsity things, great sweatshirts, jeans, an army jacket — you’re going to find a lot of that stuff as a great base on which to build your wardrobe,�

says the Thailand-born, Toronto-bred designer. We hit him up for some spring sneak peeks (his first collection for the brand) and those catalogue-worthy styling tips. What are some classics every woman should own? A great pair of skinny jeans, a T-shirt, a great army jacket, a great leather jacket and a great pair of boots. What was the starting point for the spring line? We wanted to give the Madwell girl the ultimate wardrobe. It’s almost like traveling and packing a bag. You start by putting in all the basics: a great pair of jeans, a great dress,

Stylin’ skills

Baseball caps help toughen up Madewell’s spring looks. MILES DIXON

The girls in Madewell’s catalogues always look so hip. What are some of your favorite styling tips? There’s a cool, downtown spin to what we do. It’s feminine with the masculine. [I love pairing] a leather jacket with a great dress. When you take the sweetness out of things, it just becomes a little more interesting. [I always think,] “How am I going to make this outďŹ t not too sweet, but not too ‘boy’?â€? It’s about ďŹ nding a really nice balance.

For spring, designer Sikhounmuong is all about the extraction-wash denim. / MILES DIXON

etc. You then go on your trip, and when you come back, the suitcase is a mix of things you picked up, like ethnic things. We were looking at Japanese shibori — sort of a tie-dye technique — Ukrainian blouses and Mexican embroideries thrown in with all of your basics. What are you most excited about for spring? We’re doing a new denim. It’s this wash called an extraction wash, like a

beautiful take on acid wash. It sort of sucks out all the colors to the palest ivories with touches of gray hints here and there. I didn’t want to say “acid wash� because of the negative connotations, but this is actually really special and interesting. And we have great embroideries and eyelets. We’ve taken the sweetness out of eyelets. The combo of the two — great denim with some pretty, feminine pieces — is the most exciting.

DATING

19

Logging on for love goes mainstream Data. A new study shows that more people are using online dating sites. Looking for love online? You’re not alone. According to the Pew Research Center’s Internet Project, it’s on the rise. The numbers tell all: One in 10 Americans have used an online dating site or mobile dating app; 66 percent of online daters have gone on a date with someone they met virtually and 23 percent met their spouse or long-term partner through these sites. Julie Spira, online dating expert and founder of CyberDatingExpert.com, explains the stigma of online dating is “clearly dissipating.� Since it’s gone mainstream, there are a few

reasons for its popularity. “First of all, everyone has a mobile phone now. Second, everyone is very busy. Where online dating used to be associated [with] those who were socially challenged, now you’ll find celebrities, CEOs and everyday people logging on for love. There are also a large variety of dating sites to choose [from], so there’s no longer a one-size-fits-all dating strategy.� Considering the range of sites from Match.com and eHarmony.com to niche dating sites, Spira views online dating as similar to job hunting. “If you’re looking for your dream job, you don’t just view job postings on one site. If you [use] that same formula for your love life, you’ll be more successful if you don’t put all of your eggs into one digital basket.� Tina Tessina, Ph.D., psychotherapist and author

of “The Unofficial Guide to Dating Again,� recommends shopping around first. “Look for online reviews of dating sites to see what will work for you.� She adds, “Understand what you’re looking for.� After responding to messages, chatting and then going on dates, Spira reminds daters that “online chemistry doesn’t always transfer to offline chemistry. You’re just a digital pen pal until you’ve met in person and have taken the time to get to know someone after a few dates.� If you don’t feel a connection when you meet in person, be polite. Spira says, “Your online date just might have a friend they could introduce you to, so I always believe in casting a wide net.�

Online dating safety tips

1

Take your time and trust your intuition. “If someone makes you feel uncomfortable, then just politely leave,� Spiro says.

2

Dig the digital dirt. She adds, “I believe in doing a little digital homework.�

Look at your potential date’s social networking sites to see if the photos and stories match up.

3

Always meet in public and let a friend know who you’re meeting. Send a quick text to let them

know you’re ďŹ ne.

4

Be realistic and avoid romanticizing the situation. “Don’t develop a fantasy about the date until you know the facts. It’s a tough world out there,� Tessina advises.

Green Soul

Just opened last week in Chestnut Hill, and armed with the tagline “the bridge to better eating,” Green Soul offers deceptively healthy options, like filling smoothies, satisfying sandwiches and hearty Cocktail

Root of All Evil It doesn’t get simpler than this fall libation made with our favorite Art in the Age craft spirit, Root, which is a blend of birch bark, black tea, nutmeg, cinnamon and other tasty ingredients. Whip one up and you’re ready to toast to the season. • Equal parts Root and rye • Add a dash of Angostura bitters • Garnish with an orange peel

soups that are secretly good for you. As a bonus, the restaurant uses locally sourced ingredients that are free of artificial pesticides. 7169 Ogontz Ave., 215-924-4200, www. greensoulliving.com

One of the most overlooked advantages to this calorie-conscious establishment is that there are several locations. That means that when you’re running around all day and need something quick – or if you want to have a healthier lunch while you’re at work – Fuel is your spot. They’ve got great lunch options and combos, but the current shining star is the

Vedge

“‘You are what you eat’ is such simple but honest and helpful advice,” says Rich Landau, who owns Vedge with his wife, Kate Jacoby. The two have built a huge following with their beloved restaurant. The greatest trick, perhaps, is that carnivores also love this mostly vegan,

entirely vegetarian place, too. With all the calories you’re cutting by ordering the portabella carpaccio or the eggplant braciole, you can feel free to indulge in one of their devilish cocktails. 1221 Locust St., 215-320-7500, www. vedgerestaurant.com

Honeygrow

If it’s freshness you crave – be it sweet or savory – Honeygrow needs to be on your list. The eat-in/take out spot has exactly zero freezers, which is a strong indicator of the quality you’ll find in the salads, stir-frys and smoothies. The ingredients on their newly revamped menu lean toward whole wheat and veggie-heavy. Oh, and they have a honey bar – a honey bar, people. With fruit, granola and local honey, it makes fat-free frozen yogurt look sinful.

Cook and Shaker is one of the restaurants that’s high on our list of places to try. The new joint, slated to open early next month, will serve bangers and mash, watermelon salad and those buffalo fried Brussels sprouts we keep hearing about. We had a chance to catch up with chef and owner Laura Viegas, who has a long restaurant history. This is the first restaurant you’ve opened, right? How’s it going? It’s going good. It’s a process. I’m learning a lot of things, like dealing with the city and the kitchen

and just everybody. There’s been a lot of press about C&S. Does that add unneeded pressure? Actually, I’m glad there’s a lot of press, and it doesn’t make me feel more pressured. I lived in Fishtown for 10 years and never heard of Albert Street, so we need the press. A lot of the articles about C&S refer to you as an “industry vet.” How do you feel about that term? I’ve worked in restaurants for 15 years, so I don’t mind being called that. I’ve worked all facets — front of house, back of house, bakery. I like baking; it’s what I’ve been drawn to over the last few years. Are you bringing a lot of that experience from,

say White Dog or Bistro 7, to the new place? Well, I worked at White Dog Cafe over 10 years ago. But what I loved about that place is that it was in the forefront in Philly as far as doing local and seasonal food. We used to get deliveries from Mennonites. I loved that we were using local farmers. How do you see the restaurant fitting into the neighborhood? Hopefully good. I think there was a need for another beer-and-shot kind of place. We’re going to do elevated comfort food too, but we’re not going to focus on just craft beer. We’ll have Miller Lite too, because we want to make everyone feel welcome.

Scorpio | Oct. 23-Nov. 21. Take a tour or try your hand at something that brings you pleasure. Information should be your motivation.

Aquarius | Jan. 21-Feb 18. Don’t let what others do or say stop you from following your heart or taking on a challenge or endeavor that interests you.

Taurus | April 21-May 21. Ask questions and tackle any situation that could be improved with a little understanding. Short trips will bring good results.

Leo | July 23-Aug. 22. Don’t labor over what you cannot change. Let go of the past and start noticing the opportunities in front of you. Love is complicated.

Sagittarius | Nov. 22Dec. 21. Focus on gaining recognition as well as remuneration for your skills. Keep physical activity to a minimum.

Pisces | Feb. 19-March 20. Don’t hesitate; if you want to make a difference, put your plans into motion. You will have a lasting effect on a situation.

Gemini | May 22-June 20. Do your own fact-finding. Take the steps necessary to accommodate your needs. A partnership will require you to make changes.

Virgo | Aug. 23-Sept. 22. Your undivided attention is needed to get the most out of a touchy situation. You can stay on top only if you trust in your abilities.

Capricorn | Dec. 22-Jan 20. You will leave a lasting impression on everyone you meet. Your way of assessing situations and finding solutions will put you in a class of your own.

Aries | March 21-April 20. Change may be inevitable, but it could also be your ticket to a fresh start. Check out what’s needed to head in a direction that suits your needs.

Cancer | June 21-July 22. Do something challenging and stray from your comfort zone. Updating your appearance will give you the confidence you require to follow your dream.

Libra | Sept. 23-Oct. 22. The suggestions you make must be based on fact. You’ll walk a fine line if you decide to face off against someone in charge.

More taxes and increased regulation are not good for the economy. Obama just needs to look at the weak job numbers and record 47 million people on food stamps to understand that he and his team need to modify their economic model, if they even have one.

The U.S. was strongest when it focused on itself and let the world do its usual thing. If we don’t, we will follow the Roman Empire to the same end, for the same reasons: welfare, war and a desire to live the good life without working. HENRY GOUDSMIT, VIA EMAIL

Kelly on Vick: ‘I can’t force the health issue’ NFL. Eagles coach Chip Kelly is still monitoring Mike Vick’s health before he names his starting QB. The Eagles’ quarterback situation remained muddled yesterday, despite reports that Mike Vick was definitely starting Sunday’s game. While Vick was a full participant in practice for a second straight day, the quarterback still isn’t running at full speed. “Mike got some team reps for the first time. He had done some seven on seven, but hadn’t been really involved in team,� coach Chip Kelly said. “The biggest test for him is how does he bounce back? Where is he from one day to the next day, and where he is at. I can be honest with you, I don’t think he ran 100 percent. He wasn’t running full sprints out there [Tuesday] in practice, but he looks like he’s progressing.� That doesn’t mean he can’t suit up and play Sunday, it just adds extra intrigue. Especially since

Nick Foles (concussion) isn’t practicing at all, and rookie Matt Barkley is getting first-team reps. All these factors have left Kelly without much choice. He can’t officially

The odds-on favorite to start Sunday is Mike Vick. However, Matt Barkley is preparing as if he is the guy. He has to, with so much uncertainty at the position. The rookie went 11-of-20 for 129 yards and three interceptions in his NFL debut last week. Of course, those numbers are misleading since he was forced into emergency action when Nick Foles went down. “I know what I can do in this league. I learned from those throws, especially being in a clutch situation like that,� Barkley said. “It hurts and it’s really disappointing on those interceptions.� As for Foles, it sounds very unlikely he’ll be cleared to play in time. “He has to go through a set protocol of when he’s allowed back,� coach Chip Kelly said. “He said he feels like he’s doing better.�

Catching up

Josh Freeman has a concussion. The newly minted Viking is likely out for Sunday’s game after a dismal Minnesota debut Monday night against the Giants. Christian Ponder is expected to start in his place Sunday night against the Packers. Ponder lost his starting job due to injury in Week 3. He returned to the backup role after Matt Cassel struggled.

Now, back to Ponder. “I think I was playing with a lot of pressure on myself before and never felt in sync,� Ponder told The Associated Press. “Now is the opportunity to take that deep breath and go out and have fun again. I already got benched, so it can’t get worse than that.� In other NFL news, Peyton Manning missed practice yesterday with a sore ankle. It’s not considered serious. The Cleveland Browns are turning the offense over to backup quarterback Jason Campbell. He replaces Brandon Weeden, who has been ineffective. METRO

Will he play or won’t he play is the question everyone is asking about Sixers’ top draft pick Nerlens Noel. On Monday, coach Brett Brown indicated that the 7-footer would probably miss the entire 2013-14 season. Two days later, maybe not. Brown wasn’t totally backtracking on his initial comments. He just wanted to clarify that the team isn’t going to make any hasty decisions on a guy they are banking on to become a centerpiece for years to come. “The club will make a responsible decision on his future and who knows what direction that will go,â€? Brown told reporters. “In the meantime, nobody really knows what’s going to happen. We hope he can come back.â€? Noel had been considered ahead of schedule on his rehab from a torn ACL and a December return date had been thrown out there. The Sixers just want to be cautious. “The decision is going to be made by people a lot smarter than me,â€? Brown said. “It’s done with doctors. ‌ Who knows what’s going to happen?â€? METRO

WINNERS KNOW THE SCHEDULE

ADAM LEVITAN, LIVING THE FANTASY

four of the best defenses around in Seattle, San Francisco, Carolina and New Orleans. Starting this week, they get the Falcons and then will regroup with a bye. After that, it goes Houston, Jacksonville, Indianapolis, Philadelphia and St. Louis. Larry Fitzgerald, whose hamstring is improving, is a guy to trade for as he’s coming off a 2/19/0 line in Week 7.

There are a lot of small edges worth grinding out in fantasy football. Matchups are a big and often overlooked edge. Each week, we grapple with who to start based on a lot of factors including health, current form and usage. But, the opponent is often the most important one. Guys playing against Seattle or San Francisco are far less likely to produce than guys going against Washington and Jacksonville.

METRO’S FANTASY GURU BREAKS IT ALL DOWN.

NFL news Shane Vereen (wrist) is eligible to return in Week 11 and it looks like he’s on pace to do just that. As the passing back in New England’s oense, he’s a good bet to be a dierence-maker down the stretch.

Dream slate. One place to look for buy-low ideas is in the schedule. And, that makes Chris Johnson an ideal target right now. When the Titans come out of their bye, they’ll face the Rams, Jaguars, Colts, Raiders, Colts, Broncos, Cardinals and then the Jaguars again in fantasy’s Super Bowl week. It doesn’t get any better than that for the artist formerly known as CJ2K.

Larry Fitzgerald should be primed for a breakout in the coming weeks. / GETTY IMAGES

Finally softening. The Cardinals have wildly underperformed in Bruce Arians’s typically quarterback/wideoutfriendly offense. That’s going to change in the second half. During the first seven weeks, Carson Palmer and friends faced

What ails them is a fourgame losing streak, and NHL-worst 1-7 record. The new top line will feature Vinny Lecavalier at right wing, Claude Giroux at center and Michael Raffl at left wing when the Flyers host the Rangers tonight. The hope is that the switch will snap Giroux out of his slump because Lecavalier is good at creating chances. The second line is Tye McGinn, Brayden Schenn, Jakub Voracek.
