Hello there On a Monday in January 2010, DJ was in the chair for his appointment with Dr. Rosen, his dentist since childhood. "Before she could even start doing my checkup, she ran out of the room, and said she'd be right back," DJ remembered. Dr. Rosen returned with her business card, the name "Colie" and a phone number written on the back. "Do me a favor, and call this girl," Dr. Rosen suggested, promising that Colie was a wonderful, outgoing person, and predicted they'd click.

NEWS ITEM: Former 76ers coach Larry Brown said Sunday that he was "sick" that he wouldn't be able to attend Allen Iverson's jersey-retirement ceremony on March 1.

Of all musical birthdays worth celebrating (there aren't as many as you've been led to believe), one particularly quirky event has warm local value: the 20th anniversary of G. Love and Special Sauce's first album. South Street busker Garrett "G. Love" Dutton - laid-back singer, guitarist, harmonicist - hooked up with out-of-towners Jeff Clemens (drums) and Jim Prescott (upright bass) for a then-unique trio based as much in hucklebucking folk and blues as it was in hip-hop. The group's sloppy, tangy tones quickly found their way to Okeh/Epic, and their eponymous album dropped in 1994, influencing the like-minded relaxed-fit Jack Johnson, whose success sadly surpassed theirs but led to a friendship and contract with his record label.

Sometimes, love conquers all. And at least for now, it may have squashed the squabbling between Mayor Nutter and Council President Darrell Clarke, who have reached a deal on refurbishing LOVE Park, the shabby gateway to the city's grand Benjamin Franklin Parkway. The two had dueling visions for the park officially known as John F. Kennedy Plaza, which apart from its iconic sculpture suffers from a lifeless, obsolete design, compounded in recent years by poor maintenance. Nutter wanted more green space to take the place of its cold granite slabs.

It could, if you're really ambitious, be about booking an overnight stay at one of the area's hotels that offer the amenities of l'amour at varying price points such as string quartets in your suite, one-on-one boudoir photo shoots, aphrodisiac dining menus,...

BalletX took a chance adding a fourth series to its 2014 lineup: on the weather, on the 4 percent of Americans that even see ballet, and on world premieres by two young choreographers. The gamble paid off. Two pieces by Joshua L. Peugh kicked off the evening Tuesday. Slump playfully mocks gender differences in courting. Men in chinos and shirts strut to mambo music (one spits a handful of feathers!), women in ruffled cocktail dresses stomp their heels and turn away. In meandering movements, men take long, lazy lunges.

IF YOU RAN into Yvonne Flood-Shipman in a store or a train or a city neighborhood, you had found a new friend. That was the way Yvonne interacted with people, even total strangers. But that in itself was a misconception. Yvonne didn't believe in strangers, simply because she never met one. "A very infectious personality, easy to befriend, Yvonne was appreciated and loved by all who knew her," her family said. "Whether at church, a supermarket, train, or neighborhood, Yvonne never met a stranger.
