Recycle Better: Five Mistakes, and How to Fix Them:
As ubiquitous overflowing blue bins show, Philadelphia recycles a lot. According to the Streets Department, the city collected just over 100,000 tons of curbside waste, or 17.3 percent of the total curbside trash it collected, in 2018.
Unfortunately, the good intentions don’t always amount to much — as a recent Inquirer article reported, at least half of the material collected in Philadelphia gets incinerated at a waste-to-energy plant rather than recycled. The situation should be remedied by spring, according to Streets Department recycling director Kyle Lewis.
But even before that happens, Philadelphians can take action: Better recycling starts in the bin, not on the truck.
Want to improve your recycling habits? Lewis and other experts shared the most common mistakes and how to address them.
Women’s History Month in Philly - Where to Celebrate:
Philly celebrates the achievements and successes of women all throughout March with a variety of exciting panel discussions, events, tours and more for Women’s History Month.
Some uplifting and fun events honoring women include cathartic group discussions for women of color at Uncle Bobbie’s Coffee & Books; a dance party featuring all-female DJs spinning music by women at the Ruba Club; and an event that highlights opportunities for girls and women pursuing careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics at The Franklin Institute.
For audiences looking for guidance in work and life, a networking event and engaging panel discussion featuring some of today’s brightest women entrepreneurs, artists and professionals takes place at the National Liberty Museum.

Abe Fisher Wine Night with Frasca Food and Wine:
This Sunday we checked out the exclusive dinner event at Abe Fisher.
The collaboration was with Carlin Karr, who is the wine director on the James Beard Award-winning team at Boulder’s @frascafoodwine (as well as @tavernettadenver). Named @foodandwine’s Sommelier of the Year in 2018, Carlin teamed with Abe's sommelier, Steven McAllister, for a night celebrating memorable wines produced across central Europe and northern Italy.
The dinner menu was incredible. The experience was bar none. We sincerely admire and respect every single dish and beverage that this restaurant (including every other restaurant under the Cook N Solo umbrella) creates. #hospitalitygoals
