If Rip Van Winkle awakened in the Pub restaurant after sleeping 20 - or even 40 - years, it's doubtful he'd realize how much time had gone by. . .until he discovered the price for a ten-ounce filet mignon is no longer $2.75. The Pub, located at the Airport Circle in Pennsauken, N.J., has become a legend by doing business in the same place, in pretty much the same way, since it first opened in 1953. For a while this past spring, it looked like '99 would be the year the Pub stopped doing business, period.

Skenfrith, a tiny Welsh village of 500 residents, is surrounded by green hills, thousands of grazing sheep, and small farms. The picturesque ruins of a 13th-century Norman castle stand in the center of the village, and the free-flowing Monnow River, a natural habitat for trout, winds its way through idyllic pastures. From spring to fall, purple crocus, goldenrod, red clover and other wildflowers carpet the valley floor, creating a stunning quilt of colors. I viewed this scene from the dining-room windows at the Bell at Skenfrith, an upscale but rustically decorated pub, restaurant and inn that was recently named the Michelin 2007 Pub of the Year.

Seven years ago, Christopher Bowen cleared the garden tools out of his shed - but not to make way for the lawn mower or better shelving. The 48-year-old from Bethlehem sank $10,000 and a year of labor to create a fully functioning microbrewery and pub in his 22-by-14-foot backyard box. From the center double doorway (brewery on left; sofa, bar and stools on right), the 310-square-foot space unfolds: four taps, hot and cold running water, heating, air-conditioning, four refrigerators, two sinks, cable TV, WiFi, and a classic audiophile-quality sound system.

Into an office walks a woman, off the street, and asks a professor to make her a cultured lady. If that sounds a lot like Pgymalion , or its musical cousin My Fair Lady , by George, you've got it. In the case of Educating Rita , in a lovely, crisp production that opened Tuesday night at Hedgerow Theatre, the story's a little tweaked. Rita is a hairdresser in Liverpool who's sung enough pub songs to begin singing to herself "Is That All There Is?" She's determined to find out. So she heads off to the University of Liverpool to try open class - a British program with a tutor who can prepare you for exams to get into the university full time, if that's your goal.

Get thee to Publife, an endearing evening of in-your-face performance that, as one audience member put it, blurs the line between reality and theater. At times, in fact, this fellow watched more of the old taped soccer games on the telly behind him than the show. But that was all part of it. Luca Silvestrini, with his Italo-French accent, played the emcee who hopped behind the classic old bar at Northern Liberties' Ruba Hall and tried to run the show against Tasha Gilmore, who, with her Manchester accent, played the inveterate shopping lady and soccer hag. Both engaged warmly and directly with the audience.

OSCAR-NOMINATED "Silver Linings Playbook" star Jacki Weaver says she loved her time in Philadelphia, and why not - it sounds an awful lot like club-hopping. "I went to a lot of pubs," said Weaver, speaking on the day she won a best-supporting-actress nod for the movie, which today goes into wider release to capitalize on its awards-season success (eight Oscar nods, a Golden Globe win for Jennifer Lawrence). The goal for the pub-crawling Aussie (nominated a few years ago for that country's "Animal Kingdom")

A meeting scheduled for tomorrow between union management and the owner of the Pub may forestall the closure of the landmark restaurant, known as a place where politicians go to rub elbows and the waitresses know your name. Citing a breakdown in the relationship with the union that represents his 95 to 100 employees, Pub owner Gary Perez threatened this week to shut the heavy wooden doors of the restaurant that has been in his family for 47 years. "We have a problem with the union," he said after reports surfaced that the Pub would close Aug. 30. Perez said he posted signs to employees on Monday in order to give them at least two weeks' lead time to look for other jobs.

The owner of the Pub restaurant closed the South Jersey landmark last night and said it would not reopen unless the union representing about 85 employees worked out a deal with a businessman hoping to buy the steak house. Owner Gary Perez said that if would-be purchaser Marc Gelman and Local 54 of the Hotel and Restaurant Employees International Union did not reach an agreement, he would try to sell the property to a developer. "Right now, the union and the purchaser are negotiating to try to come to a contract," said Perez, whose father-in-law, the late George Wolfman, opened the Pub at the Airport Circle in 1953.

A highly anticipated game between two of the most talented teams in the Public League, Northeast and Imhotep, was postponed last week because of excessive heat and now might not be played at all. While several other postponed games were rescheduled for Monday, Imhotep was closed for a Muslim holiday. Mastery North was among other schools closed in observance of the same holiday. A playoff game between Imhotep and Northeast won't occur, either, because Imhotep was reclassified as Class 4A this year, up from 3A last season, and Northeast is now 5A, up from 4A last year.

The Olympics may be on the big screen at Tir na Nog at 16th and Arch Streets but not for long on a Sunday morning. Ask a bartender if it's possible to get the hurling on at 10:30, he'll say, "It will be. " On the big screen, and the little screen across, and the side screen, and also in the back room. You need to listen to the pregame or postgame show? You can hear it in the men's room. That's why Mick Daly - born, he said, in the lobby of the Granville Hotel in Waterford on Christmas Eve, 1962 - was in Tir na Nog on a Sunday morning.

WHEN THE DNC leaves at the end of July, a different crowd of imbibing truth-seekers will be taking over the streets. Philadelphia will be hosting a "Pokemon Go" pub crawl. The app phenomenon, which has led to players being shot at in Florida (of course, Florida), walking off cliffs and into fire hydrants and being warned by police to pay attention while driving, is getting a series of pub crawls nationwide and Philadelphia is joining in. What's better than sober people chasing after imaginary characters?

Despite all the news about Atlantic City's do-or-die financial predicament, a new idea every once in a while bubbles to the surface. Taking an alcoholic beverage from one bar to another on the Boardwalk legally - as opposed to how it happens during the St. Paddy's Day and Miss America Parades - is one of them. Atlantic City wants to bring the time-honored but furtive Boardwalk pub-crawl out in the open. On Wednesday, the city council will consider a trial period for a law that would permit anyone over age 21 to take one plastic container of beer, wine, or another alcoholic drink, marked with the logo of the establishment that served it, onto the Boardwalk between Albany and Metropolitan Avenues.

Luke White didn't want to end his high school football career without at least one championship. The senior for Simon Gratz had already tasted defeat twice in Public League championship games, so on Saturday at Northeast, the 5-foot-8, 175-pound speedster wouldn't be denied. Thanks in part to White's 221 rushing yards and four touchdowns, Gratz dominated previously unbeaten Northeast, 54-18, in the Public League Class AAAA title game. "This is my last year," said White, smiling.

St. Patrick's Day is in March. Bloomsday - the celebration of James Joyce - is in June. Bono's birthday is in May. Spring is the time for all things Irish - and that's not even a stupid soap joke. Yet, here we are in October and Philadelphia's theater scene has gone all Emerald Isle-sy. Brian Friel - who died Oct. 2 in County Donegal and who penned 1964's Philadelphia, Here I Come! - wrote of his native theatrical tongue that "it is a rich language, full of the mythologies of fantasy and hope and self-deception - a syntax opulent with tomorrows.

Mischief abounds in Inis Nua Theatre Company's production of Hooked! , a cheeky dark comedy chock full of small-minded viciousness. Gillian Grattan set her play in an unnamed Irish village where Dublin-born Lydia (Rachel Brodeur) attempts to rebuild her life after a family tragedy. The problem? Lydia's big-city aloofness (she "gives no juicy details") and willingness to flirt with the town's men don't sit well with local gossip Mary (Corinna Burns), who lives next door with her wayward husband, Tom (Charlie DelMarcelle)

IF IT'S Public League football dominance you seek, look no further than Imhotep Charter. Since head coach Albie Crosby took over in 2012, the Panthers have gone 16-0 in regular season Pub play, 38-6 overall and collected three Pub titles (two in AA, one in AAA) along the way. During that three-year span, the Panthers have beaten Pub teams by a combined score of 1,217 to 133, which includes a 2-0 forfeit win against Del-Val Charter in 2013. If the rest of the city is looking for relief, it isn't likely to come this season.

Peter Hwang and his family, who own Center City's Oh So Good quick-serve, have gone farther up the food chain with SouthGate , a Korean-inspired pub, replacing the landmark Tangier (1801 Lombard St., 215-560-8443). Opening is Thursday after a week of trials. The building was stripped down to its bones for necessary structural repair, yielding a sleek dining room, an open kitchen set behind a glass window, and windows you can now see through. The name suggests Namdaemun, the great south gate of the open-air market in Seoul, and is also a play on the location, bridging Rittenhouse just to the north and South Street at its doorstep.
