Blogged Around Philly: Farewell Edition
Who needs an RSS feed when you have us? The best from this week in the 215 blogosphere...
Because this is the final installation of your local blog cheat sheet, we figured we'd make it a little longer, in order to include as many of the blogs we love as possible, and so that you can craft your very own Philly Google Reader of Awesomeness. There is never a shortage of content, even during snow-induced disasters, so we hope you'll continue to check all of us out:
As if we didn't need another reason to question School District Superintendent Arlene Ackerman's leadership ability and sanity, check out this Philadelphia Public School Notebook post that shows her lashing out at a local teacher and encouraging her to quit.
Foobooz gives us a tour of new eateries popping up in the Italian Market and new inventions in beer efficiency at the Wells Fargo Center.
Grub Street informs us that Ron Jeremy will be at this year's Wing Bowl, so nab those tickets while you still can! What about an ugly dude with a huge wiener doesn't have good time written all over it?
Shmitten Kitten sums up the Facebook emotional gamut in just one post.
The 700 Level shows us the cool press Philadelphia Union fans are getting overseas, as well as their rundown of top Philadelphia athletes they want to follow on Twitter ... if they were on/alive.
Meal Ticket tries Jose Garces' new to-go meals and the writers find themselves developing a thyme jus addiction.
Any experienced builders or landscape designers interested in helping West Philadelphia High School harvest its rainwater? (University City Off the Grid)
Green Philly Blog wins the prize for Most Useful Blog of the Week with tips on what to do with all those leftover plastic bags you have (hint: throwing them away is not on the list) as well as some eco-friendly wedding dress options to make all your guests "green" with envy.
Philebrity shows us the funniest example of cabin fever so far this winter.
Where are all the nerdy alcoholics in this city? Hah, just kidding: we know there are a ton of you, so check out Geekadelphia's announcement of DrinkPhilly's mobile app. Let the drunk tweeting begin.
For those who haven't already noticed, the accent of the woman telling you to hurry the fuck up and get on the Broad Street Subway has changed (SEPTA Watch).
And last but not least, we certainly hope that you will welcome the newest blog on the block, KeyPulp, with open arms and maybe some brownies. Plug it into your Google Reader now!
