Hello there After spending the morning reading and relaxing at the Hamilton Square Barnes & Noble, Talisha thought she'd treat herself to lunch at the nearby Chili's. "I was just about to read a magazine when he passed by. " He was Tim. "She was beautiful," he said. "Her face drew me to her. And there was just something about her. " Tim changed course for Talisha's table. "He was trying to flirt, and then we started talking. " They had just 30 minutes to chat that day in early June 2015 - long enough to discover they were both single, both funny, and both military.

THE THOUSAND or so hand-painted faces looking down from the buttery walls of the Palm restaurant are full of smiles, for the most part. Mr. T isn't happy, of course, and it's hard to tell how the collies (Dixie and Pumpkin) feel, but most faces are beaming, from Rob Lowe's brother, Chad, to former Eagles linebacker Dhani Jones and the actor Lorenzo Lamas, who played Lance Cumson on the 1980s TV show Falcon Crest . Chad who? Falcon what? Isn't Donnie Jones the Eagles' punter? That's been the problem lately at the Palm.

Here is an excerpt from Craig LaBan's online chat of Dec. 29, 2015: Reader: Could you suggest a spot for lunch where out-of-town friends can experience our exciting restaurant scene, sip good wine, talk and linger? (Walking distance or short ride from the Palomar would be ideal.) They love fresh seafood. Craig LaBan: Well, there are lots of good lunch options - including some with good wine - within walking distance of the Palomar: the Oyster House (serious local flavor, great seafood and wines to match)

Donald Trump, the Republican front-runner for president, once called the Plaza Hotel in New York City "the ultimate trophy. " That was when he owned it, from 1988 to 1995. The Pennsylvania Republican Party might have seen Trump, who draws large crowds at rallies, as a trophy "headline speaker" for Friday's fund-raising luncheon, held each year at the Plaza during Pennsylvania Society events. The question now: Has Trump tarnished his trophy status with a series of escalatingly provocative comments, culminating in a call to ban Muslims from entering the country?

Today is being marketed as a global day of giving. Coffee drinkers and donors to a local nonprofit can enter to win a bike ride or a lunch with the mayor and his wife. Here's how it works: Gearing Up is a local nonprofit that provides bikes for women in transition from addiction, abuse and incarceration, and it's announced a partnership with Square One Coffee (249 S. 13th St.), in Midtown Village, for what's being designated as #GivingTuesday. According to a news release, the coffee shop will give 5 percent of all sales earned today to Gearing Up, and for one day only, every donation made at Square One Coffee or through the Gearing Up website will be matched dollar for dollar, up to $10,000.

Linda Jeffers looked over the spring roll she ordered. "I don't see any bugs," she said drily to two friends as she bit into her appetizer. "Of course, we wouldn't know; they could be crunchy. " And with that joke, the ice was broken, and the three lunch partners seemed delighted to be back at a favorite Main Line haunt, Yangming Restaurant, which opened Wednesday for the first time since it was shut down for health violations two months ago. The three were among about 45 customers who showed up for lunch after the restaurant opened at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday.

Here is an excerpt from Craig LaBan's online chat of Tuesday, Sept. 22. Reader: Since the weather is starting to get colder in the morning, where is your go-to place for a great cup of joe? Craig LaBan: So many right now. I tend to hover between Menagerie (Old City), Rival Bros. (Fitler Square), and Talula's Daily (Washington Square), with visits to Bodhi (10th Street), Toast (12th Street), Square One (13th Street); and sometimes the new Passero's (800 block of Chestnut Street)

At Camden's most unusual new restaurant, there's more than hearty fare on the menu. Five raised beds of veggies are flourishing on the roof; a cozy "garden terrace" offers an outdoor space for catered events; and some employees are ex-cons who have turned their lives around. Welcome to the CK Cafe, where sales of sandwiches, salads, and platters named for Pyne Poynt, Parkside, Fairview, and other sections of the city help feed the needy folks who live there. "We're trying to celebrate where we're at," says Karen Talarico, executive director of Cathedral Kitchen, the cafe's nonprofit parent.
