Yo, chef: Pamplona, at 12th and Locust streets, is one of our favorite restaurants. Always fun, always lively, always delicious. I would love to have recipes for their "Shrimp Pil-Pil," wonderful sauteed shrimp with a spicy kick. Philadelphia is a great restaurant town. Thanks for your help. Joan Johnson Dear Joan, Pamplona is named after the town in Spain where the famed "run with the bulls" is held. Pamplona was conceived by and is owned by Philadelphia restaurateur Dmitri Chimes, who started with the tiny Queen Village restaurant Dmitri's.

Michael Lenahan, a Northeast Philadelphia man and 2005 University of Pennsylvania graduate, has learned the hard way about the vagaries of life. After recovering from testicular cancer late last year, Lenahan vowed to take an annual adventure trip starting this summer - when he would run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain. "He decided he wanted to live life to the fullest because you don't know how much time you have," his father, Larry Lenahan, 53, of West Lake, Ohio, said yesterday.

PAMPLONA, Spain - The penultimate bull run of Spain's San Fermin festival left at least 23 people injured Saturday when thrill-seekers fleeing the beasts were crushed at the narrow entrance to the bullring, officials said. A tourist from Ohio was one of two runners gored. As the bulls thundered into the entrance of the tunnel, they were blocked by a mound of dozens of people who had fallen and were piled on top of one other. One bull that had fallen before the entrance got up and charged into the clogged passageway.

A Cherry Hill man was among three runners gored Monday on the third day of Spain's famed running of the bulls through the cobblestoned streets of Pamplona, the most gorings for one run so far this year. Thousands of daredevil runners charged ahead of six fighting bulls let loose for the annual San Fermin festival, and the three men were gored by one that broke free from the pack just before entering the city's bullring, a Navarre regional government statement said. Aryeh Deutsch, 38, of Cherry Hill, who has participated in dozens of bull runs at Pamplona, said he tripped and fell amid a crowd of runners as he dashed ahead of the black bull and saw the animal heading toward him as he lay on the ground.

Now that he has survived the harsh elements of Alaska and the even harsher sting of missing an Andy Reid-run minicamp, Jason Babin is setting his sights on his next expedition. The Eagles' Pro Bowl defensive end said he planned to run with the bulls in Pamplona, Spain, this July. "It's kind of a rite of passage," Babin said Wednesday after his first spring practice. "It's a stamp. I guess in my brain I have a figurative 'man card' that's got certain punches that need to be punched out. " Babin punched out a climb-a-glacier-in-Alaska hole earlier this month during a 12-day bear-hunting trip.

Brett and Jake wouldn't be doing this, I thought to myself. I'm sure of it. It was 3:30 on a cool July morning in the foothills of the Pyrenees. I was sitting with two Spanish friends in a large but not very stable Ferris wheel, slowly revolving above and below the predawn shadows of this northern Spanish city. At the apogee of our turns, I could see down into the center of town, where the revelry in the streets continued unabated. The sound of Basque pipes and drums, and the singing of the ancient songs of the Festival of San Fermin, rose over the city rooftops and drifted faintly by our ears at the top of each turn.

PAMPLONA, Spain - One elderly thrill-seeker was gored in a leg and five others slightly injured as thousands of adrenaline-fueled runners raced ahead of six fighting bulls in the streets of the northern Spanish city of Pamplona in the first running of the bulls of this year's San Fermin festival, officials said Saturday. Runners, in traditional white clothing and red kerchiefs around their necks, tripped over each other or fell in the mad daredevil annual rush along early morning dew-moistened slippery streets to the city's bull ring.

PAMPLONA, Spain - An American college student and two Spaniards were gored Friday during a danger-filled sixth bull run of Spain's San Fermin festival, with one loose bull causing panic in the packed streets of Pamplona. Tension soared when one of the animals charged Diego Miralles, 31, and tossed him on the ground with its horns for almost 30 seconds as fellow runners tried to pull it away by its tail. The man clung to one of the horns as screams were heard all around. Helpers eventually dragged the man to safety by his feet.

PAMPLONA, Spain - The start of the annual San Fermin bull-running festival was delayed briefly on Saturday by masked men who unfurled a huge Basque flag, blocking the view of a balcony where a rocket that officially marks the beginning of the revelry is launched. Minutes before the celebrations were due to begin, several masked men were seen unfurling the flag, known as the Ikurrina, and draping it from rooftops after launching a cord across the square by using a fishing rod. Thousands of revelers, dressed in traditional white with a red handkerchief around their necks, packed the square chanting "Viva San Fermin" as the flag was removed.
