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.

Producing master plans to combat blight and revive rundown neighborhoods has practically become a cottage industry in Philadelphia. But comebacks, when they happen, rarely turn out the way planners script them. So it is with Point Breeze, which begins south of Washington Avenue on the west side of Broad Street, and extends well past Snyder Avenue. Once a working-class area of stalwart brick rowhouses, dramatically punctuated by cathedral-size churches that seem worthy of Rome, Point Breeze began coming apart at the seams with the '80s crack epidemic.

MaST Charter's baseball team did not play in the Public League during the regular season, but thanks to Jack Lawson it still has a chance to win its postseason tournament. Lawson lined a single to center and Matt Carter scored standing up in the top of the ninth inning Wednesday to send MaST Charter to a 4-3 quarterfinal victory over Central. Bryan Kaelin drew three walks for MaST Charter and Tim Kaelin drove in two runs. MaST Charter, which is located in District 12, plays its regular season games in the Bicentennial League, which is made up of mostly District 1 teams.

Just as they did while playing together the last four years at Delaware Valley College, former Public League football players Aaron Wilmer and Rasheed Bailey shined at pro day last Monday at Villanova. Wilmer, a dual-threat quarterback and George Washington graduate, displayed a live arm and accuracy with his throws. Bailey, a dynamic wide receiver from Roxborough, showed his soft hands and flexibility. The result for the Philadelphia natives, with at least three Eagles scouts in attendance, was an invitation to work out for the team Wednesday morning at the NovaCare Complex.

SABRINA ALLEN likes to say that she "bleeds basketball. " "Cut me open," she tells her Imhotep girls' basketball players, "that's all you are going to see is basketball. " The coach of the Panthers, in her sixth year, has turned the program into one of the most intense and consistent in the city. In other words, her players bleed basketball, too. And yesterday afternoon, Imhotep took home its second straight Public League championship by defeating Mastery Charter North, 61-33, at Saint Joseph's Hagan Arena.

JAVIER BUFFALO didn't even have his pads on anymore. Plus, his ribs still smarted from a diving touchdown grab, his second on Saturday night when Ben Franklin High beat George Washington, 36-19, in the Public League semifinals. But, about 45 minutes after the final buzzer, the 5-11, 180-pound junior wide receiver still had time for one final tally after he skillfully fielded post-game interview questions. "Are you done now?" asked Kevin Caldwell, the record-setting Franklin quarterback, who was holding a football in his hand.

Kennett Square, a borough in Chester County known mostly for its mushrooms, will add craft beer to its list of permanent attractions this fall when it welcomes its first brew pubs. One is owned by Victory Brewing Co., a regional craft-beer giant that sells its products in 34 states and several countries. It has a 212,000-square-foot, $38 million brewing facility in Parkesburg and has the appreciation of county officials who hope the brewer can help boost the county's economic image.

ISHMAEL BRACY certainly looks the part on the diamond. With his sunglasses donned, even on a cloudy day, and his gums always flapping, the George Washington High junior just looked like a baseball player yesterday at Richie Ashburn Field in the Public League championship game against Franklin Towne Charter. However, dig a little deeper and you'll find the shades are prescription, and the constant chatter - sometimes over the top - is born from passion that was forged in struggle.

IT WAS EARLY April when Scott Siley went on his first call. In the moments just before the scanner squawked at Station 27 in Bensalem, the senior third baseman for George Washington High was helping to clean out the station's rec room. Within seconds, Siley, a volunteer firefighter, threw on his gear and hopped onto the truck for his first real action. "It was awesome," he said. "It's just so much fun, roaring down the street with the sirens blaring and everything. " The call was a car accident on Street Road, he said.

WHY DIDN'T Sankofa Charter senior Anthony Wright-Downing transfer? Much is at stake for high school athletes, considering how a college scholarship can potentially change a life's course. And while a scholarship alone guarantees little, for decades it has not been uncommon for athletes to pledge allegiance elsewhere in search of playing time, exposure, a better fit, etc., all in an attempt to maximize opportunities. So when the 6-1 combo-guard was advised by friends and family to seek out a more established basketball program, why didn't he jump?
