When Ken Foster decided to consolidate his two houseware stores into one mega-store, he knew he hadto include a large demo kitchen for cooking classes. They'd outgrown the cramped space at the back of his cookware store at the Reading Terminal Market, and he believed a new, spacious kitchen could generate an important chunk of new business. The new 11,000-square-foot store, Foster's Homeware, at Fourth and Market, includes a high-end, Miele-equipped kitchen in the rear of the store, which is outfitted like a loft apartment.

The Philadelphia Chamber Music Society's season-ending concert Friday at the Free Library drew but a modest number of familiar faces. Most audience members were young and hip, and some wore shorts, jeans and T-shirts. Guitarist Sharon Isbin, wearing a blindingly bright gold pantsuit and a black jacket, had come to town, bringing with her guest artist Gaudencio Thiago de Mello, a charming percussionist from the Amazonian jungle who now lives in New York. The program first devoted itself to solo guitar pieces, which were then followed by Isbin and de Mello's playing together.

Everybody has a neighbor he could do without. Maybe the guy parks his RV on the street, or doesn't keep his lawn trimmed just so, or lets his dog leave land mines on the sidewalk. It's irritating. What really gets people on South 47th Street in Lincoln is when their neighbor makes his burnt offerings and stinks up the whole block. "The smell," says Julie Wiedeman, who lives next door to Don Moren's two- story frame house, "is just awful. " On the other hand, she concedes, it's a darned interesting thing to watch.

Do you have an investment or a start-up business for which you'd like to raise money? Now, to that end, you can advertise your venture - legally - on Twitter and Facebook, on television, even at a sports event. Washington watchdogs have updated the Securities Act of 1933, the law that once barred American businesses from raising money by advertising private deals. The change was part of the Obama White House's proposed JOBS Act, meant to spur small business after the Great Recession.

"It is time to go to the river," boomed the voice from above. Along South Street, African drums were pounding, barbecued ribs were smoking, and jovial crowds were shopping. On sale were wood carvings, reggae recordings, traditional garments, dolls in African dress. On stage, an African dance performance was soon to start. But the loudspeakers broke in with a reminder that the Odunde Festival is more than a party, and more than a celebration of the culture of the African diaspora.
