The "Perrier Cafes" were the places to belly up to yesterday as free samples of the mineral water were being given out to pedestrians at several Center City locations. At Broad and Chestnut streets, Ellen Shulman dispenses bottles of Perrier's "Nouvelle (New) Production" as Tom Turner provides live entertainment. Both are employees of the Burson-Marsteller ad agency. Perrier is using samples to promote the resumption of sales after a worldwide recall in February, when benzene was found in some of the firm's bottled water.

Going to the spring for clear, cool water may conjure images of families filling jugs at a bubbling stream. But in this Chester County township, local government officials fear that a "giant straw" run 190 feet deep into a spring in Pigeon Creek may put their water supply in jeopardy. Controversy began flooding South Coventry after officials learned that Perrier was sucking up spring water at the company's facility near the northern border of the township and trucking it to New Jersey for testing.

The Georges Perrier era at Le Bec-Fin will end Saturday night. Amid the hushed white-tablecloth grandeur of the dining room of the Walnut Street institution, beneath enormous crystal chandeliers, Perrier addressed several dozen staff members before dinner service Wednesday to introduce Le Bec-Fin's new owner, Nicolas Fanucci. "I never thought this day would happen," Perrier said, his voice breaking, his eyes welling with tears. "I'm 70 years old [actually, 68]. I just can't do this anymore.

Last year was a very wet year. And all that rain, state officials say, could have affected the results of tests conducted by bottled-water giant Perrier to support its controversial application to withdraw more water from a spring site in the township. On Tuesday, the state Department of Environmental Protection issued a three-page letter requesting a new round of tests and an intensive site investigation to support the company's conclusions about the project's environmental impact.

Chester County taxpayers are helping underwrite the legal costs that South Coventry Township faces in its battle with Perrier over the withdrawal of groundwater from a site that the bottled-water giant owns in the township. Last week, the Chester County commissioners learned that taxpayers have also been subsidizing some of the research that Perrier is using to try to prove it won't diminish the groundwater supply. "We may be funding both sides of the issue," said Commissioners Chairwoman Karen Martynick.

A NON-WHITE CHRISTMAS It's the day after Labor Day, so it's time to begin thinking about Christmas, right? Well, some of you might have heard distressing rumors that the U.S. Postal Service wants to ban colored Christmas-card envelopes. It is true that white envelopes are easier for new automatic letter-sorting equipment to handle. But postal officials promise that if you buy cards that come with envelopes that are red or green or some other color, they will happily deliver them.

Ibsen's The Lady From the Sea is not nearly as famous or as frequently performed as A Doll's House or Hedda Gabler . But it does take up the same enduring and fascinating questions: Is marriage a viable social institution? Are women free to exercise their will within the bourgeois confines of being a wife? Is it possible for men and women to understand each other? But in The Lady From the Sea , EgoPo's second installment in its Ibsen season, the master goes beyond these societal issues and deals with the depths of the psyche, exploring the profound pull of sexual "terror" that both repels and attracts.

You can order a Perrier just about any place these days, but (H2O), the Water Bar, in Beverly Hills is probably the only place in the U.S. where you can choose a mineral-laden Borjomi from Russia, or a Rokko from Japan in its surprisingly pretty cardboard carton, or a Bourassa, from British Columbia, "naturally pure glacial water" in a distinctive "cut-plastic" bottle that resembles a hunk of ice, sort of. These waters and more than 50 others imported...

When she was 12, Erika Frankel's parents took her to Le Bec-Fin, the storied French restaurant that with its elaborate multi-course meals played a major role in establishing Philadelphia as a world-class culinary destination. Tween Frankel was not impressed. "After the meal, my mom asked me what I thought," recalled Frankel, now 36. "I said, 'I think if you took all the food that was on each plate and rolled it into a ball, you'd have a Big Mac.' " Frankel's appreciation for haute cuisine has grown since then.

After a frenzied six-week renovation, Peppercorn (503 W. Lancaster Ave., Wayne, 610-964-2588) has opened at Eagle Village Shops in the spot that for 12 years was a Georges Perrier restaurant known as Le Mas Perrier, Le Mas, and georges'. The Main Line building's bones are the same. It's a series of rooms, including a rustic, high-ceilinged bar, a sunny rear garden room, a hushed main dining room, and assorted nooks. Where Le Mas Perrier aspired to the look of a farmhouse in the south of France, Peppercorn has opted for an overall feeling of warmth and luxury.

"YOU CAN TELL everybody I'm not a bum, yet. I'm fine. Don't worry," assured chef Georges Perrier when we asked about his estate sale, held over the weekend at his Chestnut Hill mansion.

AN ATTORNEY for chef Georges Perrier has initiated legal action against the blog StaphMeal.com by filing a writ of summons in Common Pleas Court. Attorney Jonathan Cohen 's filing indicates that a complaint outlining allegations of libel and defamation could be forthcoming.
