Jeez, it’s hot out! We think you should stay indoors– those pit stains don’t match your pants.
Yesterday, we tried getting out of bed. We couldn’t. We wrote Summer Street instead.
Monday brought Playlist of the Week (workout style). Today, Street shows you how to swim, bike and run in Philadelphia like you’re the iron man himself. Pick it up on stands.
You couldn’t think that’s all! We’ve also got a review of the PMA’s Visions of Arcadia exhibit (it’s, like, so rapturous — which is a word from the thesaurus), a Street Burger Shakedown between Bobby’s and Shake Shack, and oh so much more.
Oh yeah. Write for us. We’ve got the A/C, because Street loves you.
Hit the Pool —
This week, Summer Street
takes a dip in Germantown's newest swank–fest, Arrow Swim Club
. It's the best way to beat the nauseating heat this time of year.
Alas, all good things must come to an end, and Summer Street is no exception. We’ve had tons of fun bringing you the scoop on summer’s releases, openings, and happening events, and we hope you’ve enjoyed reading the issues week after week. Pick up the last Summer Pennsylvanian of 2010, on news stands today, and savor the summer flavor.
This week, we have two film reviews: a contemplation on the future of gay issues in mainstream cinema, and a musing on the winning components of a good action flick (spoiler – a hot headliner does not for a masterpiece make). We also have a report on a brand new restaurant in Queen Village; read the article to discover what happens when you take a kitchen genius out of ritzy Rittenhouse. We also have a special online-only summer playlist: 25 of the best songs from this summer. And, of course, we’ve given you the run-down on the weekend’s festivities. Take a good look, because after this you’re going to have to start planning your own weekends.
But of course, Street as you know and love it will be back every Thursday inside the DP. Get excited, because we’re ready to bust out of the broadsheet.
We know you’ve been anxiously awaiting the next installment of Summer Street. It’s here at last, and chock-full of reviews. We’ll give you the low down on the latest box-office arrivals, from heart-wrenching medical docu-dramas to the return of the cosmo-sipping foursome.
Check out our reviews of the latest Billboard chart-toppers, and decide whether you’ll be dowloading souped-up vintage swagger or mellow Heartland hymns. Finally, sync your calendars with our to-do list; you don’t want to miss what we’ve got planned.
The school year is over, but never fear! Street is still here, if only as single page within the Summer Pennsylvanian. Pick up the first issue, which hits newsstands today. We’ve got music reviews–find out how one band avoided the sophomore slump and why synthesizers aren’t always the answer. Read up on the latest in zombie-apocalypse flicks and figure out what you’ll do with your Memorial Day weekend.
Adieu! Adieu! To yieu and yieu and yieu!
Ah, Summer Street readers. It’s been a long road, but here we are at the junction, ready to leave the days of abbreviated arts and culture news behind for a ride into the ever-receding horizon.
And how will we wrap up our final week of fun, festivities, and taking you out? With food, of course! Whether it’s a movie about food magnates and their admirers or our review of the newest Washington Square gastropub, we’ll fill your mind-tummies for the last time (until September, of course!).
With the food comes table talk. What would a nostalgic Street wrap-up be without a little self-reflection? Street ed Paul Richards sounds off on his theory on internship abstinence (thanks, Health class!) in our first and last WOTS of the summer, and we present you with the Best of Summer — you’ve still got a whole month to indulge in our favorite Philly finds.
Last but not least, Rachel Stern-Stein has given us the third and final installment of her memoir, The Intern, and believe you us, you won’t want to miss her explosive exit from the internship world.
And now, be brave, young soldiers. Pull yourselves away from your laptops and venture out to the SP newsstand for the last time this summer. But chins up! You know Street won’t be gone for long. Summa Street out.
Iiii can do anythinggg!!
What time is it? It’s Summer Street-in’ time!
As the young nerds that we were, plenty of us Street folk had a fascination with the incredible PBS show that is Reading Rainbow. As LeVar Burton shepherded us through the great depths of children’s literature, we became instantly hooked on phonics. And what has this obsession morphed into? A penchant for billion-paged books! Check out our summer reading list for 800+ page books that will take you right into NSO.
Don’t forget to check out our film review of In the Loop too, if you’re looking for a break from the books. And nothing says summer like good old fashioned BBQ and playgrounds, mini-golf, and carousels. Pick up your copy of the SP today, or check out the print version online; it’s our second-to-last week to take you fools out.
Shots with oysters in them. Street takes you there.
You know who it is. Yeah, it’s Street again. And you know what day it is. Yeah, it’s Thursday. It’s been a whole week since we saw you last, and it’s about time for another rendezvous, summer style. Because we’ve missed you.
Let’s start this little get together with some dinner — and with University City Dining Days, the fixed price is right. Check out our extensive list of choices and reviews, for your convenience and viewing pleasure.
Up for some after-dinner dancing? Read our Street eds’ account of their venture westward to Chicago’s Pitchfork Festival, and tune your iPod to the list of featured bands. Speaking of Apple, peep our review of the newest iPhone. Because what’s sexier than the latest in gadgetry?
And finally, follow us and hit up the aphrodisiac-filled Oyster House, sure to satisfy your Center City shellfish cravings. Let’s put it in terms of the transitive property. If you’re reading UTB, and UTB reads Summer Street, then you should read Summer Street. And you thought math served no purpose beyond your Formal Reasoning requirement.
I scream; you scream; we all scream for Street!
Missing the Bard, rolling your “r”‘s or participating in three-hour lectures on the cultural significance of 13 Going on 30? We at Summer Street have figured out ways for you to indulge your inner-academic if you’ve been missing your major this summer. And after healthy doses of UTB controversy since February, Street has finally taken on the Blockley to see if it can truly pour it on. We’ve also got mini-reviews for yous with shorter attention spans: check out our digest of the latest in music and foreign films. Pick up (or download) your copy of the SP today for these arts and culture gems, live in color! You might be sick of these Summer Street posts, but trust us, it’s worth it for this week’s StreetTakesYouOut. You know you’ll never tire of ice cream, pizza or hip hop dancers bustin’ moves.
