To a steak shop in Philadelphia's Wissinoming section that remains pretty much as it was when it opened 64 years ago, big change is coming Monday. Chink's Steaks on Torresdale Avenue is taking on a new name: Joe's Steaks & Soda Shop. Some will consider it a long-overdue act of racial sensitivity at a business whose name - the founder's nickname since childhood and a slur against Chinese - has drawn fire from Asian Americans. Others no doubt will protest the switch, including regulars who have griped about any shift in how things are done at the retro-1950s eatery, even the addition of french fries to the menu about four years ago. Some might even think it's an April Fool's prank.

SAME GREAT cheesesteaks, now with 99 percent less controversy! That, in so many words, was the gist of Thursday's announcement that Chink's Steaks in Wissinoming will debut a new name, Joe's Steaks & Soda Shop, on April 1. And no, it's not an April Fools' joke. "I've been here for 35 years, and I've owned [Chink's] for 14. We've had some controversy," Joe Groh, the shop's owner, said by phone Thursday night.

TO THE VICTORS went the cheesesteaks. But first to the kids who helped them. Lunch periods last Friday at Roman Catholic High were rather amazing, according to rising basketball star Rashann London. "When they made the announcement, guys were cheering and screaming," he said. "They were going off. Everybody was excited. " Even against rivals, Sunday games can be tough sells for students, so Roman coach Chris McNesby told the school to inform the students he'd pay for cheesesteaks for the first 50 to show up for the Catholic League battle vs. St. Joseph's Prep.

Super Bowl Sunday surely is one of the meatiest eating days of the year. And some recent trends on the butchering side of things are offering whole new ways to raise your meat game, so to speak. Until recently, shopping for meat at the grocer generally meant you were limited to just a few mainstream cuts, says meat guru Bruce Aidells, author of last year's The Great Meat Cookbook . Part of the problem was the standardization of the meat industry. Butchering skills waned because so much was handled at the industrial level.

CARMELO ANTHONY was hungry, and not just to end the Knicks' losing streak. He wanted something to eat. Anthony, struggling to keep his energy up while fasting for 2 weeks, snapped out of a slow start by scoring 18 of his 27 points in the second quarter, and New York ended its season-high, three-game skid with a 100-87 victory over the New Orleans Hornets on Sunday. Anthony missed seven of eight shots and scored two points in the first quarter of the noon start he dislikes, then outscored the Hornets by himself in the second period as the Knicks took the lead for good.
