It's like a Rolling Stones song from the '70s: You're strutting down the city sidewalk like a peacock, pimp hat cocked on your head. When you get to the corner of 15th and South, you hear James Brown's "Hi-Heel Sneakers" wafting through the air along with the smoky smell of barbecue ribs. You follow the beat and the aroma into Bob & Barbara's, where the music is blaring, the bar is packed, and the Pabst Blue Ribbon is flowing like the Mississippi - it's Juke, Jerk and Jive: Soul Barbecue night, which, on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month, re-creates the sounds, smells, and cut-rate prices of a Southern juke joint.

One thing kept Murray State from making a Butler-like run through the NCAA tournament two years ago. Butler. The Racers got sent packing by the original in 2010, their inexperience exposed when freshman guard Isaiah Canaan's desperation pass in the closing seconds was poked away. Time expired as Canaan chased the ball into the backcourt, and the two-point loss carries a sting that lingers to this day. "An NCAA tournament game to go to the Sweet 16, you turn the ball over and you're only a freshman?

Several elements go into establishing a good rivalry, and the baseball teams at Gloucester County and Cumberland County Colleges seem to possess most of them. The teams are establishing an intense relationship, even though Gloucester was Region 19's premier program during the 1990s and Cumberland is in just its third season since reinstituting baseball. The competitive factors are in place: proximity, familiarity, mutual respect, overlapping recruiting territories, and most important, winning programs.

The problem with most club music is that it has nothing to do with dancing. How can you dance when you're about to have a seizure from the frantic tempo? Coldcut (nothing to do with deli products) solves that problem by making fluid, groove-oriented, chill-out music that doesn't fade into the background. The British duo - ex-art teacher Jonathan Moore and computer programmer Matt Black - are best known for dropping Ofra Haza's otherworldly vocals into a remix of seminal rappers Eric B. and Rakim's "Paid in Full.

The prices seem reasonable at Relish, a West Oak Lane restaurant that boasts of its "modern Southern cuisine. " Most appetizers are less than $10, entrees less than $20. Taxpayers, however, would see a steeper tab if the menu provided full financial disclosure: that Relish survives with the support of more than $1.1 million in public funds. The restaurant is owned by the Ogontz Avenue Revitalization Corp. (OARC), a nonprofit community-development agency founded by State Rep. Dwight Evans (D., Phila.

There's a look of dread on Terence Stamp's face as he stands atop a bar in an outback Australian mining town and scans the room crowded with drunken, ornery blokes. You see, in The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert, Stamp - a leading man of '60s British cinema whose recent career has been confined almost solely to Hollywood villains - is playing an extravagantly dolled-up transsexual. A transsexual who, along with two younger drag-queen compatriots, performs in a disco-pumped cabaret act. The pub patrons of Broken Hill, New South Wales - real miners playing themselves for the promise of free beer - are clearly agog at the spectacle of this trio of bedecked would-be showgirls.

The name of the politically connected restaurant on West Oak Lane is Relish, but it's leaving a bad taste in taxpayers' mouths. The state of Pennsylvania is paying $1.1 million this year to keep the eatery afloat. Relish received a $650,000 loan from the Philadelphia Industrial Development Corp., and a $470,000 grant from the Department of Community and Economic Development. Relish is owned by the Ogontz Avenue Revitalization Corp., a nonprofit founded by state Rep. Dwight Evans (D., Phila.

Like a ghost of commuter railroads past, the Reading Terminal Headhouse, at 12th and Market, has stood silent and virtually unchanged since closing, at age 91, in 1984. There exists no eerier witness to that lost era than the second-floor Gateway Restaurant and Cocktail Lounge. A jar of relish waits on its lunch counter, not far from a "Nearly Everybody Reads the Bulletin" train schedule. Soon, though, workers will renovate. The Hard Rock Cafe is bound for Center City.

The Eagles blew away Da Bears' Super Bowl aspirations, and I came away with a Sandwich Board recipe. In the Windy City, the Chicago-style dog is king, and while watching a Blackhawks game at the United Center last Sunday (they actually won), it was hard to turn down the chance to partake in the flavor of a foot-long dog. One rule of thumb: Never eat with ketchup - ever. Although it may be an acquired taste for East Coasters, this dog's a winner, which is more than can be said about Da Bears.

Joan Osborne got it exactly right when she called her major-label debut Relish (Mercury). Osborne is a robust singer with a pained blues howl and a secret, soulful whisper at her disposal, but though there are despair and desperation aplenty in her songs, they never lose faith in sensual or spiritual pleasures. In a sold-out show at the North Star Bar on Friday, Osborne was exultant on the ecstatic blues-romp "Right Hand Man," and foreboding on "Dracula Moon," as she warned, "Love comes down any way it wants to . . . Open up your arms or it will break you in two. " The New York-based vocalist's songs revel in passion and work toward ultimate release, but she wields her big voice with subtlety.

Hillary Clinton has been a part of national life for so long, known to haters and admirers alike by first name alone, that it was almost easy to overlook the monumental nature of her impending accomplishment. Not anymore. After voters Tuesday cemented her status as the first woman to clinch the presidential nomination of a major political party, millions of women reveled in Hillary's historic moment. They let their young daughters stay up late to watch on TV, felt a certain catch in their throat, and perhaps, like Clinton herself, wished their own mothers had been alive to witness it. "First time since 1789 - that's a long time," said Rita Conley, 75, a former Democratic committeewoman, who lives in North Wales, Montgomery County.

Some new coaches will be present at Franklin Field this week amid all the teams competing at all levels at the 122nd Penn Relays. But it's a safe bet that very few are happier than Mike Smith, the first-year director of track and field at Georgetown and a former Hoya runner who clocked a personal-best time at Penn in the 5,000 meters in the early 2000s. "I've got fond memories of that venue as an athlete," Smith said this week, "and it's an honor to come back, given Georgetown has such a rich history at the Penn Relays, to lead them as coach.

THERE SHOULD be gray in his beard. That's the immediate thought when Michael Del Zotto finishes detailing his NHL journey so far, and particularly the leg that has led him here. Worry, doubt, uncertainty, and the cracks in confidence they combined to produce - well, if such things truly did influence the color of one's hair, he might closely resemble the most interesting man in the world by now. But he's still only 25. The beard is all dark brown. Seven-and-a-half years into a hockey career that has been filled with both promise and disappointment, that has wowed and waned at various junctures, the Flyers defenseman finds himself, in the first year of a career-settling, two-year contract, playing a role on ice and off that only a couple of seasons ago would have been unimaginable to anyone, including him. He tries to shut down the best players on the other team.

Long has made the most of his opportunity, leading Lenape to a 4-0 record and the No. 6 spot in the Inquirer Top 25 rankings.

Walk into The Keeper Institute and there's no sign of what the director and founder has accomplished. No big posters on the wall of the four years spent representing the United States. No mention of placing second in the 2011 World Cup, or the gold medal finish in the 2012 Summer Olympics. No trace of the fact that she played with and against some of the best in the world. You'd be forgiven for thinking this Sewell warehouse was just another place for local soccer players to practice.

Fallout from the primary election continued across the Philadelphia suburbs Wednesday as some candidates prepared to challenge close results and others celebrated or reeled from upsets. In Coatesville, two judicial candidates said they would pursue complaints against the primary winner, incumbent Magisterial District Judge Grover Koon, over his campaign conduct. Jacquelyn Carter said Koon distributed mailers with confidential information about a protection-from-abuse-order she had obtained - in a case in which Koon presided.

The tradition dates back decades: Midway through election days, politicians and movers and shakers from across Philadelphia make their way to tables at the Famous 4th Street Deli in South Philly, and Relish in the Northwest. This time, the talk over lunch was of a landslide in the making. At the Famous, guests were greeted by cutouts of the day's eventual big winner - former City Councilman James F. Kenney, running for mayor - and of Kevin Dougherty, who late Tuesday was well ahead in his run for a state Supreme Court nomination.

Brandon Hamilton sees himself as an "underdog. " His whole team will fit that description Friday night. Hamilton and his Paulsboro teammates know they are widely regarded as little more than a speed bump in top-ranked Roselle Catholic's anticipated drive to another Tournament of Champions title. But Hamilton, the Red Raiders' senior guard, has heard that kind of talk in the past. "We were supposed to be underdogs in this game, right?" Hamilton said after Paulsboro's imposing 90-65 victory over Group 3 champion Bergenfield in the T of C quarterfinals Wednesday night.
