Had it not been for the multiple bags in each woman's hands, it would have been easy to believe Judy Dunn as she and her sisters griped, during a pause inside the King of Prussia mall, that Black Friday had lost its appeal as the Day of the Deals. "They're killing Black Friday, the retailers," said Dunn, a 55-year-old elementary school principal from Broomall, wagging a cookie in her hand before taking a bite. "The sales weren't there like they used to be. " "Black Friday is not the same," interjected Marijo Gannon, 43, of Broomall.

LAST YEAR, 6ABC weatherman Adam Joseph overextended himself a bit. After running around all morning as master of the Fan Cam at the 93rd annual 6ABC Dunkin' Donuts Thanksgiving Day Parade, he went home and cooked a full dinner for his entire family. At least he didn't have to do the dishes. Joseph made it clear to me that he despises dishes. This year, Joseph is keeping it low-key post-parade, opting instead to dine at someone else's house, although he'll have his signature dessert, a play on an old recipe that he's deemed Adam's Apple Delight (check out the recipe if you're in need of a last-minute turkey day treat)

"I see Sam!" Alexis Vernola, 16, of Allentown, screeched as actor Sam Claflin came near. "I can't breathe!"

One in a continuing series spotlighting real estate markets in the region's communities. The city of Camden has 620 more people. Winslow Township is larger by 34 square miles. But Cherry Hill is the center of Camden County's universe. South Jersey's, as well, says Bruce Paparone, whose family has been building houses here for 50 years and is finishing the last one at Country Walk on Kresson Road.

For 50 years, she has danced in the shadow of her glamorous big sister in Cherry Hill. Suitors with names like Nordstrom and Saks would flirt, only to slip away - sometimes into big sister's arms. But now, the Moorestown Mall has two new beaux. And with suave super chef Marc Vetri on one arm and hip Iron Chef Jose Garces on the other, its owners say the gray-haired maiden of Moorestown is poised to outshine Cherry Hill Mall as a place to "dine, shop, and be seen" in South Jersey.

Dana Smith Farrell uses such adjectives as fresh and approachable to describe Avenue Kitchen , the restaurant that she and her brother, Gregory, opened Monday at 789 Lancaster Ave. in Villanova (610-525-3950). The bar/restaurant occupies a portion of the space previously occupied by Maia and Mixx in the center behind the Villanova post office. The look is timelessly classic bistro, with angled mirrors high on the walls, whitewashed bricks, reclaimed tables and chairs, and neutral, leather-and-velvet banquettes.

The shoe fit, so Barbara Glaberson wore it. But the shoes, she said, didn't make her fit, so she tossed them aside - and instead filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer, FitFlop USA L.L.C. If that lawsuit, filed last week in federal court in Camden, goes the way similar class-action suits against other shoe manufacturers have, FitFlop USA could find itself paying tens of millions of dollars. And Glaberson, who bought the shoes at the Cherry Hill Mall, may get a mere $50 of it - although not if FitFlop's lawyers prevail.
