B UZZ: Hey Marnie, I was out of beer last night after a sweaty day of yardwork, so I tried adding ice to my favorite cabernet. It tasted awful! Marnie: Some red wines can handle being chilled, Buzz, but that isn't one of them. The same traits that people love about cabernet sauvignon make it very temperature-sensitive. Buzz: Temperature-sensitive? Don't sauvignon grapes like hot weather? Marnie: No, Buzz. Red wines that are dark in color and intense in flavor are usually high in tannin.

LAS VEGAS - No Ben Simmons and Christian Wood, no problem. The 76ers got a much-needed victory in the NBA Summer League in a game without their leading scorers. They defeated the NBA Development League Select team, 108-71, Wednesday in a playoff opener at the Thomas & Mack Center. "We just jumped on a team early," said Sixers summer-league coach Lloyd Pierce, whose squad led, 56-42, at the half. "We knew there was going to be a little bit of a push, and we jumped them again coming out of halftime.

LAS VEGAS - The NBA draft last month went like this for 76ers fans. "The 76ers select Ben Simmons at No. 1. " "Hooray!" "The 76ers select Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot at No. 24. " "Who?" So Luwawu-Cabarrot is spending his time at NBA Summer League games showing who he is. He headed into Tuesday's matchup against the Golden State Warriors averaging nine points and three rebounds over four games - two were in the Utah Jazz Summer League - and was shooting 40 percent from the field.

WHEN SHIMMERY pop goddess Gwen Stefani rolls through Camden on July 19, the No Doubt songstress-gone-solo could wallow in the distress of a famously splintered marriage or blossom with the cheery promise of fresh new romance - both highly personal, gossip-worthy subjects that she's touched upon on her most recent album, 2016's chirpy This Is What the Truth Feels Like . Or she could do the girl power thing with Eve - the Philly rapper/actress who...

Before Jaws , there was no such thing as a summer blockbuster. The stretch between May and Labor Day was rife with genre fare, drive-in double bills, the schlock, the crock, the crusty. And then, on June 20, 1975, everything - everything - changed. Steven Spielberg's adaptation of a bestseller about a New England beach town terrorized by a giant shark opened to huge crowds, the media fueled the mania, the industry took note. High-concept "event" pics - heavy on action, thrills, chills - backed by massive ad campaigns and booked into as many theaters as possible had the potential to turn the summer doldrums into Hollywood's hot season.

Summer is not the easiest time of the year to sell a house, or to buy one, for that matter. Or is it? "I often tell sellers the best time to list is when they are ready," said Chris Somers, broker/owner of Re/Max Access in Philadelphia's Northern Liberties neighborhood. "If it happens to be the summer, that is fine, as the market is still very busy year in and year out," he said. Despite the arrival of summer, Somers said his office has been "super busy. " Not as busy as the spring, "but you certainly do not want to wait to get your property sold if you are ready now. " "And there are buyers now," he emphasized.

If you haven't seen the first season of USA's Mr. Robot and want to experience last summer's most surprising show for yourself, you might want to stop reading now and go to Amazon Prime, where all 10 episodes are available. When you return, we can struggle together with What It All Meant and talk about the new season. It says a lot about the kind of show Mr. Robot is that its creator, Sam Esmail, would like to see a spoiler alert on everything written about it, into perpetuity, and that, space permitting, I don't mind.

LAS VEGAS - The 76ers will tell you Joel Embiid's trip to the NBA Summer League is all about being in shape. The 7-foot-2 center performed layup and shooting drills after the Sixers practice concluded here Friday at UNLV's South Gym. He didn't participate in the two-hour practice. Nor will he play in any summer league games. "We know he's healthy," said Sixers assistant Lloyd Pierce, who's coaching the summer league team. "He's been in a great spot the past couple of months. . . . He's just trying to get in basketball conditioning, [work on his]

ON THE VENTNOR-ATLANTIC CITY BORDER - The days when 10 a.m. was the bicycle witching hour - the time when any illusion of One Boardwalk stretching from Ventnor's Margate border on through Atlantic City's inlet evaporated, when Ventnor's "until noon" bicycle hours collided head-on into Atlantic City's "until 10 a.m. " - are over. Not quite officially over, but almost, and very, very unofficially over. After some adjustment, police have accepted the city ordinance is changing, and have adopted a laissez-faire attitude.

Welcome to America's newest, most entertaining reality-TV show. It's called NBA Free Agency, and it doesn't need a Kardashian, a Real Housewife, or a deserted island (unless we're talking about Brooklyn and the Nets roster) to do boffo ratings and grab the viewing public by its lapels. There's so much action and excitement, and so much of the action is meaningless mind candy. Aside from Kevin Durant's leaving the Oklahoma City Thunder to sign with the Golden State Warriors, the thrill of seeing all these players changing teams and signing gonzo contracts has little to do with how those signings will affect the balance of power among the league's 30 teams.
