If The Sopranos were to hire a house band, they could do a lot worse than the extreme lounge keyboard-and-drums duo of Mickey and Joey Pal. The two have been playing music together for 30 years this month, and appear every Wednesday through Saturday night at Kathleen's Cafe (on Ninth and Christian Streets). Equal parts Las Vegas and South Philly, their act draws from a large repertoire of songs, from Broadway show tunes to Bacharach to "Wildwood Days. " Between songs, the off-color jokes fly fast and thick.

With a guaranteed salary of $6 million, Robin Ventura earns about 100 times as much as the next-highest-paid player in triple-A Nashville's cramped clubhouse. But it didn't take long for the Chicago White Sox slugger to become one of the guys when he began a medical rehabilitation assignment with the Sounds last Monday. Ventura, who broke his right leg and tore ligaments in his right ankle during spring training, took the locker nobody else wanted - in the corner beneath the TV. He showed up early and stayed late, signing autographs beside the third-base dugout for a long time after his debut.

The sweetness that wafts from bath oils, lotions, body butters and sea salts made by Carol's Daughter starts with the way a color, a flower or a fruit makes Lisa Price feel. In her scent-centered world, Price sees a peppermint sprig, thinks ocean-fresh, blends the aromas, and voila! - a product is born. "It just amazes me how awesome they smell. . . . I don't know if it's going to work. I just have the idea to do it," explained Price, owner of Carol's Daughter, a Brooklyn-based line of natural skin- and hair-care products.

Sculptor-painter-furniture maker - the words bring to mind a childhood jingle, and sound like an array of job choices, not a one-man description. But Wendell Castle is all of those things, and he is all of them at once, blended, with no distinctions between the art forms. At the moment, he's bent over a wooden, vaguely rocket-shaped form in his studio, dappling the surface with a sharp chisel. When he's finished, the piece will nominally be a grandfather clock, but - under a skin of crackly and colorful paint and with a shape that will suggest a palm tree seen through an LSD haze - the fact that it is a clock will hardly be its major characteristic.

The Rhône-inspired wines of Paso Robles are some of the most intriguing bottles coming these days from California, and those from Tablas Creek, co-owned by Château Beaucastel of Châteauneuf-du-Pape, are among the very best, though relatively pricey. The Patelin series of country-style red and white blends with screw-tops was launched in 2011 as a response to the lagging economy to give Tablas Creek a presence in the under-$20-a-bottle range. And the result has been value wines of great character and complexity.

Dear Polly: My popovers are always moist and doughy inside. How should they be baked to make them drier? Lengthening the baking time just makes them too dark. - Carolyn Dear Carolyn: For crisper, drier popovers, prick the side of each popover with a toothpick after it is done, then return to the oven for three to six minutes. This will allow the steam inside the popover to escape, and the inside will be drier. Here's a basic recipe for these versatile little breads: In a small mixing bowl, beat 3 eggs with an electric mixer until foamy.

One in a continuing series spotlighting real estate markets in the region's communities. Just say "King of Prussia," and even the most geographically challenged will know the location of Upper Merion Township. Add Valley Forge to the explanation, and out-of-towners will be able to get their bearings, as well. Not all of Valley Forge National Historical Park is in Upper Merion, but a large part of it is - about 1,300 acres. This Montgomery County municipality of 28,365 people also includes such locales as Gulph Mills, Swedesland, Swedesburg, and even some of Wayne, a place that seems to be just about everywhere.

Valentine's Day is a time to think about romantic getaways. Because one of the most popular gifts is chocolate, here are some destinations where you can share your love for each other with your love of chocolate.

Buzz: Hey, Marnie, my brother just got back from a trip to Napa Valley. He said some wineries put other grapes in their cabernet sauvignon. Isn't that illegal? Marnie: No, Buzz, it's legal in most wine regions, as long as it's a small percentage, though in some European regions, the named grape on the bottle must be in the wine 100 percent. Buzz: Do other places require every grape to be named? Marnie: Yes. Australia requires all grapes in a wine to be named on the label, in order of volume.

Claire Boucher, the Canadian indie electronic artist who records as Grimes, is a fabulously conflicted pop star. Boucher, who plays a sold-out late show Saturday at Union Transfer as part of her Rhinestone Cowgirl tour, has just released Art Angels , her fourth album and by far her most pop-targeted effort to date. It's also the first sign of evidence of her professed love for such Top 40 heroines as Mariah Carey, Taylor Swift, and the Dixie Chicks. You might not know that by looking at the album cover.

He led the NFL in rushing yards last season, carried and caught a football more frequently than anyone in the league, and did so for a franchise whose status and starred helmet confer stardom on any John Doe who happens to don them. DeMarco Murray lived and worked inside the bubble of being a Dallas Cowboy for four years, an existence in which the top wide receiver is a lightning rod and the quarterback is a celebrity and the owner loves being a lighting-rod celebrity, in which the predecessors at his position included Tony Dorsett and Emmitt Smith, and still, for one season, Murray managed to surpass them.

Q: My partner and I have been shopping for furniture, and I hope you can answer this question. Is it just us, or is furniture getting bigger all the way around? We have a lot of modern, low furniture, including a platform bed, and a low couch and chairs. We love the sleek midcentury look, but are having a hard time finding new pieces that don't make us feel like little kids - plus, our condo isn't huge. - A. A: It isn't just you. There is an overall trend for larger-scale furniture.
