It appears that Cole Hamels was just named MVP. Good job!

Amy Sedaris Live!

Amy Sedaris will be appearing at Foster’s Homeware (399 Market St.) TODAY. She’ll be cooking with Michael O’Halloran, of Bistro 7, at 5pm. At 6pm, there’s a Q&A with Amy, and at 6:30, there’s a signing of her book, I Like You, newly available in paperback. If I could get in the door, I would. Tickets were sold out as of last week, but there is free limited standing room available. Get in line, now!

PAWS needs your help!

Hello, Philadelphia dog-lovers! I’m sure you’ve heard of PAWS. They are in dire need of people to take in dogs from their shelters. Right now! There is currently an overload of dogs. If you can’t commit to a long-term situation, perhaps you could foster. It could save a life!

Directly from their email:
IF YOU CAN FOSTER, RESCUE, OR ADOPT AN ANIMAL: Come to the shelter (111 W. Hunting Park Avenue) immediately. A staff person or volunteer will be thrilled to help you find the right animal(s) for you to take into safety. Assistance will be available from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day of the week. To make special arrangements to come at another time of day, please email Natalie at (please email only as a last resort; Natalie is inundated. It is best to just come directly to the shelter.)

Philadelphia Inquirer Sudoku National Championship

Saturday, October 25 will be the date of the Philadelphia Inquirer Sudoku National Championship. I have some sudoku skills, but I wonder if I could compete with these competitors! There are beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels, all with monetary prizes for each 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place finishers. All age ranges compete at the Pennsylvania Convention Center for a $10,000 prize and advancement to the World Sudoku Championship. Who knew that a little puzzle would have such a big event surrounding it, and in our own community? Check out more details at

Back in business

Yes, we’ve been slacking here at Philadelphia Metblogs. We all admit it. And we apologize!

What better way to get back in the swing of things than talking about Wednesday’s impending Game 1 of the World Series, starring our very own Phillies! Phillies vs. Tampa Bay Blue Rays: 8pm on Fox. Game 3 will bring them back to Philly by next weekend.

I’m not a serious baseball fan, but I’ve always loved to go to games. Way back, when I was a tiny little girl, my Dad would load up my mom, sisters, and me, haul us off to Reading, and try to teach us about the game. Minor league was a great, and inexpensive, way to show us the ropes. We were always sleepy before the end, and I remember drifting off to sleep, as we rolled around the back of the station wagon, still listening to the end of the game on the radio. Ah, the memories!

Go Phils!
