A Delco town makes a “coolest burb” list

Super popular interior design and all-things-Millennial-living website Apartment Therapy has made a list of 24 of the Coolest Suburbs in the US, and a Delco town made the cut! Spoilers: Haverford Township isn't it. I'll bet you can guess which Delco town was, though. Think hipster. (ok that's a little unfair but we're feeling jealous)  |  |  |  |  | \/   You guessed it! Media, PA made the list. We have to give it up to them down there. Media is a pretty fun town. We like the whole Christmas thing and the trolley going down the street and the coffee shop/music scene. Some super fun Escape the Rooms are down there too. And hey. It wasn't Narberth. No Lower Merion towns made the list. Soooo... tea. DELCO DOES IT AGAIN. Just sayin'. There are some Jersey 'burbs, but the rest are spread out. Have you been to any? Are they cooler than Media and the pure awesomeness that is Delaware County?

Chili Snobs, Unite

I hated chili as a kid. HATE. Like hide a full bowl behind a dining room bench pillow and run for the woods when a relative sits on it hate (that really happened). I hated chili, beef stew, stewed tomatoes, baked beans and kidney beans, to name a few. Of course, my mother loved all of these things, including liver, which I can't even begin to talk about. Today I still don't eat stewed tomatoes or kidney beans (or liver, but I'm not talking about that). I do LOVE a good chili concoction on top of nachos, especially if we're watching Eagles or Steelers football with friends! (not yesterday's game though. And boy oh boy is McCoy in trouble for all those times he left the ball on the field!) I may just make myself a tray of nachos and head over to the Library's Chili Cook Off on Sept. 22nd! Here are the details: 1st Annual Chili Cook Off Haverford Township Free Library Sunday, September 22 @ 4:00 pm $5.00/person or $15.00/family There will be cornbread, desserts and beverages served, all while listening to a live bluegrass, folk duo.
