On the eve of Philly Beer Week, a talk with Tom Peters of Monk's. The Heineken that Tom Peters ordered on his maiden voyage to Brussels (en route to Paris) in 1984 was as ho-hum as the ones he'd had back home in Philadelphia. Would he like to try a "real beer"? the bartender asked. He would indeed. Which is how it came to pass that he had his first Duvel, golden and effervescent, the head so tall and creamy that he had to be instructed to tilt the glass and sip from under it. The Earth moved.

He tried Orval next. Then Chimay Blue. Then delayed the train ride to France.

Executive-suited worshipers form lines to the right and left to meet Tom Peters, the management guru, columnist and lecturer who has filled a hotel ballroom for a Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce seminar. One man is happy just to be photographed with him; others, like Frank Donaghue, CEO of Southeastern Pennsylvania American Red Cross, have specific questions. Peters has repeatedly referred to people whose creativity is not utilized by their employers and who then turn their energies to their churches.

Moving day for St. Christopher's Hospital for Children into its new, $100 million facility has been postponed at least until June 23 as work to satisfy state safety standards continues. Inspectors in the state Health Department's Division of Safety Inspection visited the facility on Erie Avenue at Front Street at least twice in the past week and have identified work that needs to be finished before the state can issue a certificate of occupancy. Asked what work needed to be completed, Tom Peters, director of the division of safety inspection, said yesterday: "There are a lot of things happening.

For those of us on the employee end of the employer-employee relationship, Tom Peters' ideas for corporate survival make a lot of sense. Peters (In Search of Excellence, Passion for Excellence) wants those of us doing the grunt work to be rewarded, respected, recognized, promoted and, most important, listened to. After all, we're the people who determine if the product is any good. And if the product isn't improving in countless little ways all the time, and if the corporate culture doesn't encourage improvement and innovation, then there may not be a corporation for long.

The battle over the bikers came before the Township Committee last night as members of a local motorcycle club sat across the room from several residents who turned out to protest what they say is raucous behavior at the club's official meeting place. At issue is whether members of the Hawg Ridin' Fools Motorcyle Club, which owns a heavily wooded lot in the sparsely populated Dunbarton section of the township, are being good neighbors to area residents. Residents accuse the club members of holding night-long parties, of being extremely loud and of making the neighborhood an eyesore by keeping tents on the woodsy lot. In addition, neighbors say they have heard gunshots and fireworks at the site.

Full Disclosure Dep't: Once, about 20 years ago, I walked out of the Fort - a dark and stale midstate college bar where you could drink Genny Cream all night for about two bucks - with a 12-ounce glass mug tucked down my pants. It sat in my kitchen for the remainder of the semester, filled only occasionally with orange juice. I am unaware of its current whereabouts. I have no excuses for my sophomoric behavior. Now, with my sins confessed, I'd like to tackle the nasty, little habit of glassware theft.

It would be impossible to talk about Belgian beer and Philadelphia without the name of Tom Peters - the former manager of Copa, Too! - finding its way into the conversation. Peters is generally considered to be the guy responsible for getting the likes of Chimay, Corsendonk and other Belgians flowing into the City of Brotherly Love. But for those who know Belgian brew, that's probably old stuff. What is new is that Peters and Fergus Carey - partner at Fergie's, the popular Irish pub on Sansom Street - have tapped into a new venture.

How do you discover your personal "brand"? It emanates from your most authentic self. Branding oneself sprang into the business lexicon with management guru Tom Peters' Fast Company article, "You Are Your Brand. " Since the contract between employers and employees is broken, we all must differentiate ourselves to survive. "You don't 'belong to' any company for life, and your chief affiliation isn't to any particular 'function.' . . . Starting today, you are a brand," Peters wrote.

CRAFT BEER on tap. Filet mignon on the grill. Foie gras in the cooler. Aged Gouda on the cheese board. Yep, they've come a long way since the Vet days. "We did the most horrible tailgates back then, man," said Curt Decker of his Eagles pregame get-together in its nascent years, established well before the 2003 opening of Lincoln Financial Field. In those days, Decker, owner of Nodding Head, and his buddy Peter "Bear" Brett, a sales rep with Stockertown Beverage, would drain plastic Budweiser beer balls and heat up franks on "Lil Smokey" grills so low to the ground that meals often came with a side of spinal conniption.

Much is made of the military utility of high ground. Less so - in these parts, at least - of the giddy tonic of dining in the clouds. Or scoring a crow's-nest lounge seat on the occasion of the setting sun, the sky going tangerine, then dusky pink. Perhaps it's because in Philadelphia, where a gentlemen's agreement long capped building heights below the brim of Billy Penn's hat atop City Hall, there's little experience with the concept, and no general reserve of civic memory.

Charlie Manuel isn't as brainy as Steve Jobs, as brash as Donald Trump, or as bizarre as Ted Turner. He doesn't do pie charts, power lunches, or peer appraisals. And the last time we saw him in a suit, that gaudy pin-striped number he wore to the 2008 victory parade, he looked more upstart mobster than upper management. But don't let the Phillies manager's down-home demeanor and syntactical struggles fool you. While his Citizens Bank Park office might not have a Wharton diploma on its walls or any of Tom Peters' books on its shelves, he possesses the leadership savvy and skills of the chief executive officer of a Fortune 500 company.

"This is how Belgian food is," said Michel Notredame, the jolly, bearded, chain-smoking owner of Cuvee Notredame at 17th and Green streets in Spring Garden. "We make it as good or better than French food and in portions big enough to satisfy the Germans. " Notredame is one of a small cadre of Belgians and Belgo-philes who are influencing the eating and drinking habits of Philadelphians these days. He came to Philadelphia 15 years ago after meeting a local woman while on vacation in the West African nation of Senegal.
