Len Davidson led a sing-along in the cold of Saturday afternoon in the Italian Market while cans of 7UP sat wedged into the snow drifts of Carpenter Street. “Hootin! Hootin! Hootin! Hootin!” he compelled a handful of curious history-loving Philadelphians to join him. “Nothing does it like 7UP, 7UP / Nothing does it like 7UP, 7UP.”

A dilapidated Bella Vista bottling plant is getting razed for incoming townhomes. The small crowd gathered on the sidewalk across the street from 816 Carpenter St., a former 7UP bottling plant that is set to be razed and repurposed into 25 townhouses. Before construction begins, Joel Spivak, an architect by trade and Philadelphia

Namely, Frank’s, a brand born of Jacob Frank, a Russian immigrant who made soda on the streets of Philadelphia and specialized in fresh-squeezed lemon soda, stood out. “Frank’s Orange and Black Cherry Wishniak were all over the city,” Davidson recalled fondly.

The chill in the New Year’s Day air wasn’t enough to stop the Mummers or their passionate fans from ringing in 2014 Philly style.

New year, same fear To the Editor: It is a brand new year! I am usually optimistic in the concept of a fresh start and a new beginning. It will certainly be a challenge to stay positive after some very disturbing events. My year ended with a man being stabbed outside of my house, and began with a woman being shot just a few blocks from where I live. Not that I ever expect to hear anything good when asked if Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard about the most recent event. I try to prepare myself for the inevitable bad news, but it never works; I am always appalled and disgusted! The feeling of being safe because you live in a seemingly nice area is gone. I have always believed that anyone with this misconception is actually in more danger. We may be fortunate to live in a decent neighborhood, but certainly not exempt from crime. The question

is, what are we to do? Have we become desensitized and almost accepting of these types of crimes because they have almost become commonplace? I wonder what changes are in store for us this coming year. While our taxes will surely go up, what will we have to show for this unnecessary financial burden? Maybe we will have more police patrolling the streets and making the penalties much more severe so that it could slow down the crime rate. Maybe some of our money will go towards keeping the streets cleaner and clearing the ice and snow so that businesses will not have to close and suffer financial loss. If the City keeps taking from us, we will have nothing left to give. In that case, we will all lose. Yes, this is the beginning of a new year; a time for resolutions and promises for the future. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just hoping

A poetic ending To the Editor: With apologies to my Latin teacher, Sister Mary Agnes, and to the Roman poet Virgil: I sing of arms and Chip Kelly, he who came a year ago to Philadelphia and the shores of the Delaware, to a team much buffeted by violent foes and by cruel fansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; unforgiving wrath, enduring many injuries, until Chip could rebuild its reputation at last and bring new talents to the Philly gridiron, cleaving a new and storied legacy. Tell me, O Muse, the cause, from whence came the hunger of proud Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; fans to drive a man of such wondrous talents to face so many pummels and reverses? Can such passion dwell in the hearts of true believers? There was an ancient city, the home of Giants, New York by

South PhillyReview name, rich in wealth and athletic pursuits. This snotty place, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;tis said, the vengeful gods of football once loved the most, holding Dallas itself less dear. Here there once were great hopes for championship, should the fates allow it, as their aim and cherished wish. Yet, in truth, the slighted gods heard that a renewed team was springing forth from green Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; blood to overthrow a tower of strength in the land of Texas, that from this team, proud in conversions, should come forth from Dallasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ruin, ordained by Fate, division champions! Mindful of their erstwhile defeat to the wretched Vikings and their pitiless humiliation of the stumbling Bears of Chicago, the gods cast Nick Foles upon the judgment of sports history, leaving him to pass the ball, drive the running game, and cast his fate oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;er the postseason. Alas, all for naught the effort to win a Ring for Philadelphia. Gloria Endres South Philadelphia Comment on these letters or topics at southphillyreview.com/opinion/letters.

A Girard Estate resident and reputed mob figure sits in prison for allegedly plotting to have three people killed. ■ By Joseph Myers Review Managing Editor

N

ew Year’s Eve yielded no celebration for Ronald Galati, as Common Pleas Court Judge Charles Ehrlich denied the 63-year-old bail over his supposed orchestration of a murder-forhire plan that resulted in the shooting of his daughter’s boyfriend. The inhabitant of the 2500 block of South Garnet Street went to jail last month due to findings from a nearly Ronald Galati 18-month insurance fraud investigation surrounding his auto body shop, police said. According to an affidavit, Galati hired two gunmen to kill a fellow proprietor who had testified against him during the investigation. The document also noted he allegedly schemed to have the rival’s son terminated, as well as his daughter’s beau, Atlantic City resident Andrew Tuono. Police added that no attempts on the other businessman and his offspring occurred but that hired guns shot Tuono in November. The affidavit states Galati offered the supposed shooters $20,000 each for killing the first two figures. He awaits a Monday trial on charges of attempted murder, solicitation of murder, conspiracy, retaliation against a witness or victim and witness intimidation.

Alleged invader busted Two individuals detained a man after he supposedly tried to rob their home last week. The figures relayed to authorities that at 2:44 p.m. Jan. 2, an armed man wearing a ski mask and carrying a duffel bag entered their residence on the 2600 block of South Seventh Street to demand money and pills, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The complainants struggled with the stranger over his shotgun, leading the weapon to discharge and strike their ceiling. As the grappling intensified, the man allegedly used a knife to stab one occupant in the buttocks, Tolliver said. The victim and the other resident eventually disarmed the male, leading him to try to flee. The

uninjured dweller attempted to stop him, causing the two to fall outside the abode, where he held 50-year-old William Mason until authorities arrived. The harmed inhabitant received transport to Thomas Jefferson University Hospital. Law enforcement officials charged Cherry Hill’s Mason with possession of an instrument of crime, simple assault, recklessly endangering another person, burglary, robbery, theft and firearms violations. He had not posted his $50,000 bail as of press time and awaits a Jan. 21 preliminary hearing.

A gut feeling Police are seeking a man for his Sunday attack on a fellow male in West Passyunk. At 11:55 p.m., authorities encountered the victim on the 2300 block of Mifflin Street and observed a left abdomen laceration that displayed his intestines, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The figure told them an unknown male had followed him outside of Shirlrick’s Bar, 2325 Mifflin St., and had attempted to rob him. Meeting resistance, he stabbed him, fleeing in what the complainant could say only was likely a dark gray vehicle. He received transport to the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania. He described his attacker as black, in his late 20s; having a light complexion; and wearing a red shirt, a gray hoodie and blue jeans. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

Missing man alert Police are looking for help in returning a 53-year-old male to his Marconi residence. Authorities received a Jan. 3 call alerting them of the disappearance of Bernard Malseed from his home on the 2900 block of South Broad Street, learning he had not been at his domicile since 11 a.m. New Year’s Day. Their report noted the Bernard individual suffers from Malseed brain damage and has poor short-term memory. He stands 6-foot-1, weighs 227 pounds, has a stocky build, brown eyes and the same color hair that he wears slicked back.


POLICE REPORT He was wearing a North Face jacket and blue pants with white stripes on the side. Their report also said he frequents the area surrounding 15th and Race streets, along with 13th and Market streets. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-686-3013, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

Older adult assaulted

Cold case solved With assistance from the District Attorney’s office, authorities on Monday charged an already detained individual with the murder of a Dickinson Square West resident. Dennis Fulton, 36, an inmate at Greensburg’s Westmoreland County Prison due to a robbery conviction, awaits a Jan. 22 preliminary hearing because an investigation led law enforcement officials to charge him with the June 19, 2010 slay-

ing of 61-year-old Rudolph Wilkerson, of the 1600 block of South Sixth Street, Officer Christine O’Brien of the Police Public Affairs Unit said. Police contend that the Upper Darby man shot the victim while conducting an armed robbery on the unit block of Wolf Street. Fulton allegedly inflicted a single gunshot to Wilkerson’s head at 12:29 a.m., with paramedics declaring him dead at the scene 22 minutes later, O’Brien said.

Depressed male missing A non-English speaking male suffering from depression and schizophrenia went missing early Sunday morning in the vicinity of the South Street Bridge. The Lancaster-based father of 18-year-old Ariel Manual Martinez-Calon reported his offspring missing after the young man asked Ariel Manual to exit their vehicle to Martinez-Calon relieve himself as they traveled on Interstate 76 to Philadelphia International Airport for a trip to Puerto Rico, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. When the patriarch complied and pulled the automobile over, the teenager raced away, with his kin unable to catch up with him. The relatives, who noted they had no idea where he may be headed, according to Tolliver, described him as 145 pounds; having a light complexion, short black hair, brown eyes, a thin mustache, a beard and long chin hair; and wearing a black hoodie with a white design on the front, dark blue jeans and an Adidas baseball hat. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/ forms.

While in the area of the 1300 block of South Capitol Street at 9:28 p.m. Jan. 2, the complainant had an unknown male approach him from behind to demand cash, Detective Danielle Tolliver of South Detective Division said. The armed stranger moved in front of the older adult when hearing he had no funds and again barked for money. The complainant began to yell, leading the offender to put away his weapon, Tolliver said. He soon punched the figure in the head, causing a fall that made him drop his glasses, keys and cell phone. He could not tell in which direction the aggressor fled. He described the perpetrator as black, 25 to 30 years old and 5-foot-11; having a medium complexion and a slender build; and wearing a 3/4-length darkcolored coat with light-colored fur around the hood and a white knit-type scarf that covered his face. To report information, call South Detectives at 215-685-1635, text PPDTIP (773847) or visit phillypolice.com/forms.

vorite soda bottler are extinct. “Even for the sodas that were made when I was young like Frank’s, I’ve seen advertising signs for Frank’s that show they made flavors before I was born that were not available when I came of soda age,” he added. Wishniak, a cordial made in Russia and Eastern Europe consisting of sugar, cherries and vodka, however, is a primarily Philadelphian treasure that, after a brief disappearance, is still canned by Honickman Group in Pennsauken, N.J. Workers package mostly PepsiCo products, but for local lovers of that iconic soda, one can still find it when looking hard enough. 7UP was created in St. Louis, Mo., by the Howdy Corp. Finding serious success with the Howdy Orange drink, the corporation’s founder, Charles Leiper Grigg, started fussing with lemons and limes and in 1929 believed he’d concocted the great “Uncola.” By ’36, the citrus soda had done so well that Grigg changed the name of the company to The Seven-Up Co. and after WWII, his magical tonic had become the third-most successfully selling soft drink in the world. Part of what made his brainchild so successful was asking for marketing help from Disney. “What set 7UP apart was that they hired Disney to do the Fresh Up Freddy character and that was irresistible when I was a kid,” Davidson explained. “Every company had a slogan, but few Philly sodas besides Frank’s were big enough to advertise on TV like the major brands did. The major national brands had more slogans and jingles.” AT NEARBY ESPOSITO’S Meat Market, 1001 S. Ninth St., Spivak and Davidson have set up a collection of vintage soda bottles that will be on display through tomorrow. Rich Wagner, a Pennsylvania Brewery historian, was interested in the site for its functioning as a beer brewery over a decade ago. “For me, the historical significance of the 7UP site was the fact that there had been a small weiss beer brewery there in the 1880s for about seven years,” he reported. “There was no connection, other than after it ceased to be a brewery, it was probably used as a bottling facility. Whether or not that is why it became the 7UP bottling plant is uncertain.” Bottling seems like a fun quirk of Philadelphia’s soda history at this point — so few sodas are currently bottled in glass bottles, let alone sometimes hand-etched or painted. But often, a bottling plant or

factory was not permanently hooked to a brewery or a soda company. Long-extinct bottling locales are sprinkled throughout Philadelphia, with a few notables special to South Philadelphia. “You will see that Kensington and Northern Liberties had the vast majority of the city’s breweries,” Wagner divulged. “Brewerytown was a concentration of some of the

Northern orthern Liberties) Liberties).”” Developers US Construction are set to turn the dilapidated lots into 25 townhomes and call it Mildred Court. The project, designed by JKR Partners, will unite a handful of vacant industrial spaces that includes the 7UP plant. The plan was approved by the Zoning Board of Adjustment in August. In 2011, US Construction built a slew of houses across the street in the an empty lot that was once the home of Our Lady of Good Counsel Roman Catholic Church. The devolution of bottling, with fewer niche and locally-made sodas alive due to the corporate power of companies like Pepsi and Coca-Cola, gets a nail in the coffin with this next step for Montrose and Carpenter Streets. What about the fate of bottles altogether? Is that destined for extinction? “There is plenty of bottled soda; the problem is just that the small soda maker can’t compete,” Davidson reassured, adding that South Philly’s where his love for soda (and the city) all started. “My dad grew up in South Philly, and it always seemed like the funkiest (in a good way) part of Philly to me. I think of South Philly as a living museum of Philadelphia roots and culture. It’s the part of Philly I like most.” SPR Contact Staff Writer Bill Chenevert at bchenevert@southphillyreview.com or ext. 117. Comment at southphillyreview.com/news/features.

Apparent to a parent An East Passyunk Crossing mother will tout art as a bond booster through a three-date workshop. ■ By Joseph Myers

Review Managing Editor

aysayers draw cutting conclusions when deeming art a daft diversion for youths. Anna Burke responds to such critiques by esteeming the discipline as a developmental gem, and the East Passyunk Crossing dweller will promote its benefits for bolstering parentchild interactions the next three Saturdays at Capitolo Playground, 900 Federal St. “Creativity is vitally important no matter what age we are, and it’s especially powerful for children,” the 29-year-old art therapist said of seeing her upcoming workshops at the Passyunk Square site as showing the rewards of sharing ideas and producing handiwork with one’s offspring. “It’s so significant to encourage art, and, frankly, it parallels with preparation for so many other areas, notably reading comprehension.” The advocate will make her 75-minute presentations in conjunction with the nearly three-year-old South Philly Parents Resource Center, which hosts many events at Columbus Square Recreation Center, 1300 S. 12th St. Already running a mother-child therapeutic group for the community entity, she felt a supplemental source of support

would intensify integration for parental journeys into youngsters’ ever-evolving curiosity. Wanting to offer something educational and fun as opposed to a strictly clinical tutorial, she seeks to have her fellow begetters experience the thrill of a mini return to their own childhood. “It’s easy as parents to believe we’ve lost our creativity somewhere,” the wife of TJ and mother of 15-month-old Harper said of emphasizing having adults reflect progress by their progeny through drawing like their kin and focusing on the moment by refraining from indulging in true diversions like cell phone use. “So often we end up telling our children ‘no,’ but there’s so much to gain from saying ‘yes’ to their creative side.” Toddlers, whom Burke dubbed “little teenagers” for their similarities in coveting autonomy yet requiring authority, frequently factor into her work for the Northeast Philly-situated Center for Families and Relationships and will garner an extra opportunity to shine Saturday, as she will assist 2-and-a-half- to 4-year-olds, with one parent or guardian permitted for each child. Most interested in helping the caregivers to appreciate, champion and contribute to the flow of creativity, Burke,

whose curriculum will include non-artistic elements like stories and songs, sees creativity as having definite subjective and objective merit. For individuals, occasions to contribute to the world foster a sense of accomplishment, with the universe at large benefiting from ingenuity grand or small. “We set limits and boundaries, both as parents and grown-ups,” she said. “We shouldn’t stifle creative impulses, though.” FLAVORED WITH NUMEROUS creative juices, Burke lived on the West Coast until she was 10, with her family relocating to Northeast Pennsylvania. Excited to learn as much as possible, she attended Temple University, busying herself primarily through English and Art History studies, with photography as another interest. Enthused to determine the scope of her intellectual prowess, she developed an infatuation with fathoming burgeoning brains through a five-year stint as a nanny. “I loved perceiving how they perceived everything around them,” Burke, whose own pursuits include having co-directed “Fefu and Her Friends” for the 2009 FringeArts Festival, said of falling for youngsters’ investigatory natures. “Work-

ing with their parents, too, gave me even more insight, and I realized I wanted to provide help to a larger extent.” After completing prerequisites, she engrossed herself in Drexel University’s Hahnemann Medical College and Hospital-situated Master of Arts in Creative Arts Therapies program, with art therapy as her concentration. Graduating in September, she has since become more compelled to compel her clients to analyze their roles as creators. “I just really believed I could help them to see art as a great aid for expression and a helper for understanding responsibility,” Burke, whose benefactors include children, adolescents and adults, said of her seven-year tenure helping families in the Philadelphia area. “There’s an abundance of information out there on how to integrate children into society, too much information, it seems to me at times, so when I graduated, I thought there wasn’t enough that is geared toward developmental growth.” She has used her enthusiasm for a more diverse exploration of budding idea hatchers to forge a great bond with the South Philly Parents Resource Center. With receptivity to her therapeutic work, it ac-

Bariatric surgery may be the answer. “Having bariatric surgery was like going through a break-up. Eating was my best friend. Fortunately, I met some new people – Jefferson’s Bariatric and Metabolic Surgery team. The unique way Jefferson’s medical and surgical weight management experts collaborate, they’ve helped me lose 107 pounds and counting. And it wasn’t just the minimally invasive surgery that did it. The team at Jefferson was so supportive, even to this day, I pretend Dr. Tichansky, Alise and Michelle are standing behind me when tough choices come my way. Because my old friend, food, will always have its charms. But my new life is even more tempting.” Read my entire story and register to attend one of the free seminars listed below at jeffersonhospital.org/bariatric Jefferson University Hospitals – Center City campus: January 13 Jefferson’s Methodist Hospital: January 28

knowledged her creative identity, too, by approving the impending gatherings. With the majority of her assisted youths ranging from ages 5 to 9, Burke will enjoy the chance to charm younger participants, as it will provide observable glee for them and apparent bliss for her. “I look forward to my daughter’s maturation and my observation of it,” she said. “Art’s certain to be a part of that as are discussions of just making something and being engaged. That’s vital, too.” Working toward becoming a board certified, registered art therapist, Burke is also devising a few offerings for My Fabulous Mama, 1610 South St., and revels in continuing to reveal the unbreakable bond between a child’s flourishing and a parent’s nourishing. “Putting the therapeutic and the creative components together is a win-win situation,” she said. “I’m excited to be a part of the formative years for children and another voice for parents to hear.” SPR

port in the Latino and African-American communities?” CARNEY: Sir, I know this is disturbing, but 48 percent of Latinos are spreading a rumor you disrespected Sofia Vergara because you don’t watch ‘Modern Family.’ Incidentally, members of your gay constituency are also upset about that. OBAMA: “And the African-American community?” CARNEY: “These days, over half of them now emphasize you’re half-white.” OBAMA: “Which areas do voters disapprove of most?” CARNEY: “All of them, even the Christmas tree lighting ceremony.” OBAMA: “I don’t understand it. The last guy lies and starts a war. I fudge a bit about some folks being able to keep their bad medical plans, and there’s an uproar.” CARNEY: “There’s the matter of the website, Mr. President.” OBAMA: “Well, we got over a million people who’ve been able to subscribe. It’s not like I ran Target and got everybody’s credit card information compromised.” CARNEY: “Sir, I feel it appropriate to warn you from using that example. You know how you’re perceived as anti-capitalism.” OBAMA: “Yeah, I know, Wall Street hates me while the S&P 500 is at its highest since 1997. Besides, you’re going to get me on that ‘Shark Tank’ panel, right?” CARNEY: “Yes, right next to Mark Cuban. He’s the anti-Donald Trump. He actually likes you.” OBAMA: “I kept us out of war in Syria despite the Bobbsey Twins (John McCain and Lindsey Graham), who never saw a war they didn’t wish for. We got bin Laden and that didn’t satisfy them. We got a deal with Iran that has a chance to get them to back off getting a nuclear bomb. And all I get for it is crazy calls from [Benjamin] Netanyahu in the middle of the night.” CARNEY: “I understand, sir, he has a reputation for getting intemperate.” OBAMA: “I ended don’t ask, don’t tell. That was [Bill] Clinton’s idea, you know. I got [Elena] Kagan and [Sonia M.] Sotomayor on the Court, and it’s driving [Antonin] Scalia nuts. You know, he drinks wine with his pinky extended?” CARNEY: “I didn’t know that.” OBAMA: “So tell me how it is, Jay, that voters rather get a colonoscopy than say something nice about me. Some of them want to get me impeached even though I never tried sneaking some intern into the Oval Office — and it’s not just because Michelle watches me like a hawk.” CARNEY: “Nowadays, voters want every president impeached in his second term. You know that, Mr. President.” OBAMA: “I think I’ve found the source of the problem, Jay? You. You’re fired.” SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/opinion/ cardella.

Violet Weston (Meryl Streep), middle, is the most miserable matriarch in a family full of women who rally around her after her husband disappears.

Leading lady ■ By R. Kurt Osenlund Movie Reviewer

W

ill “August: Osage County” net an Oscar nomination for Meryl Streep? Of course it will. No film that’s even remotely prestigious, and hands this actress a meaty role, will fail to land her some attention from the Academy. The thing is, although she gets the chance to chomp on scenery as a drug-addled cancer victim, Streep is probably the last good reason to see this sharp-tongued family dramedy, adapted by Tracy Letts from his Tony- and Pulitzer Prize-winning play. Streep plays Violet Weston, the miserable matriarch of an Oklahoma brood, whose husband, Beverly (Sam Shepard), has vanished, maybe for good, and whose kin corral around her in the wake of the disappearance. Among those convening in the time and place of the title are Barbara’s sister, Mattie Fae (Margo Martindale); Mattie Fae’s husband, Charlie (Chris Cooper); and Violet’s three daughters, Ivy (Julianne Nicholson), Karen (Juliette Lewis), and Barbara (Julia Roberts). Along with the summer temperatures, tensions keep on mounting, particularly between Violet and Barbara, who may be doomed to become her mother. Streep has more talent in her little toe than most actors, but she can be overwrought and calculated, too, and Violet is the first character in years she doesn’t utterly nail. Her co-stars, on the other hand, bring the goods in ample supply. Lewis is a hoot as the supposedly ditzy sister who’s hiding emotional bruises, Cooper is heartbreaking as a father reluctant to stand up to his wife, and Roberts, the film’s definitive MVP, is aces in a rare role with teeth, dusting off her

“Erin Brockovich” potty mouth to spew fiery, but potently eloquent, dialogue. Letts has written better works than “August: Osage County” (like “Bug” and “Killer Joe”), but this is his most personal, based directly on his own family experiences. It’s a pity it couldn’t have been helmed by a director stronger than John Wells, who doesn’t suavely explore the story’s Native American elements, and doesn’t urge Streep to dial it back. The result is enjoyable but disjointed — less an extraordinary tale of dysfunction than a rather generic one.

Recommended Rental Lee Daniels’ The Butler PG-13 Available Tuesday

Having brought his gonzo, yet artful, proclivities to films like “Precious” and “The Paperboy,” director Lee Daniels shifts focus to craft an historical epic, charting the civil rights movement through the eyes of a White House butler (Forest Whitaker) and those around him. Spanning decades and co-starring a fantastic Oprah Winfrey, this is one of 2013’s best, and one of the best films ever about black history in America.

he President leaned back in his chair. Barack Obama appeared to be doodling when Press Secretary Jay Carney came in for his 7:30 appointment. Carney noticed the President had written over and over on the paper in front of him, “They love me ... they love me not.” The President looked up at Carney and said, “How bad is it?” This morning’s briefing concerned his sagging approval rating, and Carney tried to search for the right words to tell him just how bad it was. CARNEY: “It’s gone down a bit from the last time, Mr. President.” OBAMA: “How far is down?” CARNEY: “Well, here’s the list, Mr. President. The poll that rates the top-10 things people dread the most, and here it is: 1) A phone call from your ex-spouse telling you he or she can’t take the kids Saturday because the kids complain about it too much and besides, they’re spending the weekend in the mountains with someone who is a much better lover than you ever were. 2) The Michael Bolton commercial where he is standing on top of the car. 3) Fried eggs when the yolk is dried out. 4) Lisa Scottoline writing another column about her mother, daughter, dog and every trivial moment in her life as if it is the mission to get Osama bin Laden. 5) Traveling to work and getting stuck behind a trash truck that refuses to pull over to the side and let traffic pass. 6) Another photo of Miley Cyrus sticking out her tongue. 7)Your in-laws dropping in unannounced. 8) People who dream of a white Christmas after you’ve already had three snowstorms in December. 9) A colonoscopy. 10) The President’s second term. OBAMA: “Does this mean what I think it means?” CARNEY: “Yes, Mr. President, you’re less popular than a colonoscopy.” OBAMA: “Even the last guy (George W. Bush) wasn’t that unpopular, was he?” CARNEY: “Well, no, Mr. President. The last poll done before Bush left office placed him somewhere between a root canal and an ‘anal fissure.’” OBAMA: “And, Jay, as I understand it, this poll was not conducted by Fox News.” CARNEY: “No, sir, MSNBC.” OBAMA: “Is it true I’ve even lost sup-

Gina’s Easy Macaroons

Growth spurt

W

arning: If you made a New Year’s resolution to watch your diet, turn the page now. For those still reading, Gina Krussell’s Easy Macaroons may be just the recipe that will answer that afternoon, pre-dinner cookie craving. After all, they’re just sitting on the counter waiting for someone to reach out and grab one. But the resident of the 1300 block of East Passyunk Avenue keeps her offering on the smaller side of a 12-to-16-bite-size batch. If it seems to be too much for one to handle, don’t be shy about sharing the homemade macaroons with those sure-to-begrateful coworkers. SPR

INGREDIENTS: 1/3 cup of coconut 1/3 cup of sweetened condensed milk 1/2 teaspoon of vanilla

T

he Pennsylvania Horticultural Society will celebrate Tu B’shvat, the Jewish Arbor Day, 6 to 8 p.m. Jan. 15 at Zahav, 237 St. James Place. The special menu is being prepared by James Beard Award-winning chef and Israel native Michael Solomonov. Individual tickets are $180, which includes the tasting menu, as well as the planting of a tree in Israel and the Philadelphia region in honor of those designated by the guest. For more information, visitpennhort.net. SPR

DIRECTIONS: Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix all of the ingredients, and roll them into teaspoonsized balls. Bake on a greased cookie sheet for 10 to 12 minutes. Remove the macaroons from the baking sheet, and let cool on a table for about 10 minutes. Makes 12 to 16 cookies.

Callowhill’s Bufad is a family-friendly BYOB specializing in a variety of salads and wood-fired pizzas. S ta f f P h o t o b y K at h r y n P o o l e

The pizza was drizzled with truffle oil before it was baked. Maybe it spent more time in the wood-fired oven, but this crust was crisp and a delight to eat. Bufad is family friendly. I am glad to see more casual spots where kids, moms and dads can enjoy dinner at moderate prices. There were a few more pluses. Linen napkins, akin to tea towels, are presented and there is no song or dance about the kind of water one wants. Bufad serves unfussy food, which was what I craved early in the new year. It is what a neighborhood restaurant should be, = Very Good

ow that 2014 is here, it’s time to forgo the rich food and fancy desserts and settle in for some comfort food. For me, this means pizza. In the fall, Marc Vetri wowed me and the city with his new Fairmount restaurant. I am on a quest to rate all the pizza in town. Edward and I have driven by Bufad on Spring Garden Street on numerous occasions and discovered the restaurant features wood-oven pies. Bufad is BYOB, so we thought a Chianti would be a good choice. The well-lit room features comfortable and attractive handcrafted wood tables. The background music that played over the sound system ran the gamut from Johnny Cash to Chubby Checker. Good time rock and roll was the perfect choice. The menu features a selection of appetizers, salads and pizza. The chefs fashion their dishes with local seasonal ingredients at moderate prices. The antipasto of the day ($8 per person) is served family style. The platter contained cool cubes of perfectly roasted beets, white bean salad with bits of onion and celery for crunch, pickled cauliflower, a selection of green and black olives and a light crispy crouton topped with pickled red pepper strips. There was a fine contrast of flavors and textures on the plate. However, the cauliflower made my lips pucker as someone was too heavy-handed with the vinegar. I truly enjoyed the scamorza ($10), which is a South Philly staple in Italian homes. Many people make their own. Bufad’s version was prepared with a smoked

cow’s milk cheese that was thinly-sliced and seared in a cast-iron skillet. The slightly smoky taste of the cheese paired well with sautéed rapini and piquant piquollo peppers. The cheese and vegetables were dressed in a light drizzle of olive oil with the right touch of garlic. This antipasto arrived with triangles of warm pizza dough with a brush of olive oil. Sometimes differing flavors fight each other on a plate, but this one delivered a balance of smoky, bitter and sour. I know wood-fired pizzas are all the rage in restaurants throughout the city. Bufad offers 10 varieties and after some discussion, we ordered the fruitti di mare ($15) and the funghi ($14). The former was not as successful as the latter. Mid-size shrimp, rings of calamari and bits of clams were bland, damp and cool. They were arranged on a round of 12-inch pizza dough that had been spread with a light, thin watery tomato sauce. A scattering of capers and hot pepper flakes did little to redeem the pie, which was dreadfully soggy on the bottom. Although some of the outside rim crust was a little blistered, the dough was soft and lacked the crispness the pizza deserved. I think the consistency of the tomato sauce is the reason for the outcome. The mushroom pizza fared better. Unlike the cool seafood used in the first pizza, the mixed button and wild mushrooms were first roasted to bring out their heady flavor and aroma. Taleggio, hailed as the brie of Italy, and smoked mozzarella mingled with the mushrooms and melted beautifully on the pie. The addition of thinly-sliced pancetta added a salty punch in a fine way.

Mazza’s Stuffed Cabbage

O

wing to their Greek and Lebanese roots, Tom Saad and his family have always bonded over meals

Tom and Mimi Saad

Mazza Owners: The Saad Family Opened: 2004 1100 Jackson St. 215-952-2600 healthymazza.com

and cherish charming fellow food fanatics with their creations. Twenty-four years into their lives as Philadelphians, they have spent the last decade garnering glowing reactions to their grub at Mazza, 1100 Jackson St., their Mediterranean-infused establishment that promotes dietary diversity as a component of a healthy lifestyle. “We really care about presenting great choices,” Saad, 37, said from his Lower Moyamensing location, which he and parents Mimi and Ray run. “There’s definitely an interest in showing pride in our food and helping people to feel not only satisfied but ecstatic about what they’ve ordered.” Having operated an eatery in Monrovia, Liberia, the resident of the 1800 block of Jackson Street and his kin left the West-African city a year into the country’s first civil war. Seeking culinary competency as a young man, he landed jobs in Bala Cynwyd and

Lancaster before becoming a beacon for local lovers of nutritious fare, including Stuffed Cabbage. “It’s always been a favorite of mine,” the Newbold dweller said of the dish that his site offers every two or three months as a special, with the next occasion occurring early next month. “When we opened, people asked about it, so I said we would give it to them.” Saad emphasized that the chow will retain its freshness for a few days and that the day following its preparation will present a delight for taste buds, as the components will intensify in taste. “It’s a healthy, delicious, wonderful selection,” he said. “It’s a hearty, simple meal. It’s always a winner.”

INGREDIENTS: 1 head of cabbage 1 cup of white rice

Now Open 7 Days a Week Serving Lunch Daily 11-3

S ta f f P h o t o s b y K at h r y n P o o l e

1 pound of lean ground beef 1 egg white 1 clove of garlic Pinches of salt, pepper and parsley

DIRECTIONS: Insert all of the ingredients except for the cabbage into a large pot. Remove the center of the cabbage, and place in boiling water for about seven minutes to obtain a soft texture. After it has cooled, remove it strip by strip, and roll each piece with the other

items. Take any cabbage fragments, and scatter them on the bottom of the pot to avoid sticking. Stack the rolls on top of one another, using slices of the garlic clove for stability. Place two plates on top of the pile to avoid spillage as the rolls boil. Gradually lower the flame, and cook until the water has evaporated, approximately 45 minutes. Serve with lemon or homemade marinara sauce. SPR Comment at southphillyreview.com/ food-and-drink/features.

■ s o u t h p h i l l y r ev i ew.c o m

Willing Williford A sharpshooting senior is plotting success for his Girard Estate basketball team. ■ By Joseph Myers Review Managing Editor

J

Jeffrey Williford leads the GAMP Pioneers in scoring and has proven a stellar passer, too, for coach Art Kratchman. S ta f f P h o t o s b y K at h r y n Poole and Joseph Myers

ment by depositing 30 points in two contests. Happy to have decent duels against nonleague opponents, Williford knows he and his mates, who tallied a 3-0 mark in league matchups without their floor general, must regularly dump their rivals to become a force. “Everyone play plays hard, but our only concern conc is how we play,” the leftw hander said. “It was a bit disappoin pointing today, but a crucial stretch is co coming up, s o w e ’r e no not going to dw dwell on it.” The afterno noon affair presented an interesting contrast, as the Pioneers entered with w seven ga ames to th games their names and oonly a five-day v rest period while w the Bulldogs ventured to South Soutth Philly with a 1-2 register and two weeks away from competition. That gulf seemed telling in the th first quarter, as eight points Williford totaled to and three assists, drawing with his third of four gasps wit goals, a dazzling move field goal between two defenders that ended with a layup. The home bunch raced to a 16-7 lead yet yielded the final five points of the frame to draw critiques fram from Kratchman. “I think you look soft defensively,” the head man said to his cha charges. “There has to be more in intensity.” second quarter gave The sec Kratchman a tad more pleasure from a defens defensive point of view cringe over the lack of but caused him to crin offensive cohesion, as GAMP netted only two field goals and a pair of free throws threat Dante from senior perimeter perime Sanguiliano. Guarding a 22-21 halftime

at southphillyreview.com/blogs.php edge, the Pioneers knew versatility on both ends would help them to continue to pen a worthwhile tale. THE VISITORS QUICKLY gained the lead after the break but could not extend it beyond three points, as crisp shooting from Sanguiliano, who produced a four-point play, sophomore guard Matt Ventus and Williford, who stroked eight points, including a perfect three-point attempt, enabled them to retain a one-point cushion, this time by 36-35, as the final eight minutes commenced. Having heard from Kratchman that limiting Elverson to 39 points would likely produce smiling faces at the buzzer, they tried to deny the Bulldogs any treats, but the guests used patience on their end and haste on GAMP’s side to bite the home club. “I think we had a dip in our intensity in the fourth,” Williford, who accounted for GAMP’s only last session buckets with a pair of layups, said. “That’s not something a team hungry for distinction does, so we’ll talk about that and make changes. We’ll get better.” Eager to improve the mental state of his team, the teenager is also pondering improving physical natures as a nurse. Also interested in kinesiology, he aims to duplicate his resolve on the court by not rushing his college choice or major, with Indiana University of Pennsylvania, Lock Haven, Millersville and Temple universities expressing interest. “Jeffrey is a special kid,” Kratchman said before his primary ballhandler generated 20 points. “He’s a great leader for us.” If Williford is to devise playoff plots, the Pioneers, who last season scored a 7268 preliminary postseason triumph over Robeson in which he totaled 16 points, cannot afford to squander fourth-quarter leads no matter how small. They began a three-games-in-four-days schedule Monday with a 58-56 victory against ParkwayNorthwest and followed that up Tuesday with a 44-41 win versus Maritime Academy. They will host Philadelphia Academy 3:15 today. SPR Contact Managing Editor Joseph Myers at jmyers@southphillyreview.com or ext. 124. Comment at southphillyreview.com/sports/features.
