Spring beckons. Go on. Get out there. Take a stroll with your sweetie by your side. Buy an ice cream. Gaze at the stars. Cuddle on the porch. Better still, save the romance for a slow night. Tonight belongs to television. It's Oscar night (Channel 6 at 9). For those whose interest is dribbles, not dimples, there's the NCAA basketball championship (Channel 10 at 8). But a night in front of the TV doesn't have to mean a night at home. Restaurants and bars all over town are turning on their sets and passing out free munchies.

The elusive wolf-dog of Pennypack Park has been caught, the Pennsylvania Game Commission has confirmed. The early morning capture was made with the help of hot dogs and foothold traps. No thanks to foxes, which kept eating the bait. The animal is believed to be a wolf-Alaskan malamute mix that was purchased as a pet in Florida and escaped when his owners were visiting in Philadelphia in March. It seemed docile enough, sometimes just laying in a clearing off the 8600 block of Algon Avenue, at the edge of Northeast Philadelphia park.

BENSALEM NATIVE Christina Perri invited Miss Philadelphia Maria Sciorillo to meet her when she played the Tower Theater with James Blunt Saturday. Why? Because the newly crowned Sciorillo performed Perri's breakout hit "Jar of Hearts" to win the Miss Philadelphia pageant. When Perri, an Archbishop Ryan graduate, heard through a friend about Sciorillo singing her mournful ballad, she contacted the beauty queen, who was 2009 Miss Pennsylvania, to tell her she was touched and honored, and invited her to the Tower gig. Perri's debut full-length album, "Lovestrong," will be released May 10 on Atlantic Records.

AN X-RAY FOUND more than 30 sharp pellets in the body of a 10-year-old American bulldog found dying, chained to a fence, next to some poisoned hot dogs, at Doylestown Country Club on Sunday, an animal-welfare official says. Paul Bevan-Xenelis, 39, yesterday was arraigned on animal-cruelty charges that could bring him a 5-year jail term for allegedly shooting the bulldog, Kane - an animal he obtained months ago from a rescue group - 32 times with a .22-caliber pellet gun. Police said Bevan-Xenelis, of Richland Township, shot the dog early Sunday because it had bitten a co-worker at the Bucks County club last week.

What is it? The owners of Calypso (formerly of the Chestnut Hill Farmers Market) went mobile last year with Mini Trini, featuring a simple menu of delicacies from the Caribbean island of Trinidad. Real street: Owner Iman Marcano said their most popular item is the traditional street food called double. "The same way you buy hot dogs on the street, [double is] what people are selling on the corners in Trinidad," Marcano said. A double is fried dough (bara) filled with curried chickpeas (chana)

The Philadelphia Sports Writers Association honored Wilt Chamberlain as a Living Legend. That, in part, turned Chamberlain into The Human Autograph Machine. For a short time before last night's banquet at the Hyatt Cherry Hill, and for a long time afterward, Chamberlain scribbled one of the more famous names in sports again and again, most often for beaming middle-aged men. He signed banquet programs. Old Sixers yearbooks. Preseason magazines dating to his college days at Kansas.

To qualify as a greasy spoon, Brunish's would have to upgrade. The Pottstown sandwich shop is an institution in this weathered Schuylkill mill town, where fortunes were once tied to the iron and steel industries. The mill furnaces stopped firing up a long time ago, but Brunish's is still cooking away, a cement bunker of an eatery just more than six feet high that extends improbably from the basement of Dan Brunish's home to the sidewalk. At lunchtime, customers line up out the door for the hot sausage and hot dogs, the most popular items - and for many years the only ones.

You will have to excuse Bill Martin when he starts praising Narberth, the little-more-than-a-half-mile-square borough in Montgomery County that is surrounded by Lower Merion Township. After all, he has been the borough manager for the last 15 years. "It is probably the most perfect place to live," he said. "There's a great sense of community and there's no reason to leave because this town has everything. Here you can take a train, get a drink, see a movie, or play a game, all within 100 yards.
