For art enthusiasts!

Are you an art enthusiast? If you are, you can have a front-row seat to Caiola’s imagination as she extracts characters from archetypes, memories, and ancestors in an upcoming art exhibit.

Caiola, who lives in the East Passyunk neighborhood of South Philadelphia, is unveiling her work called “Muses, Guardians, and Saints” through April 4 at the InLiquid Gallery at the Crane Arts Building at 1400 N. American St. in Northern Liberties.

Gallery hours are Wednesdays through Saturdays from noon to 6 p.m. A reception will be held on March 12 from 6 to 9 p.m.

Caiola has been teaching art at the Friends Select School in Center City for 10 years and she’s in her second year as chair of the school’s visual arts department.

Since then, her hard work as a teacher gave her limited time to pursue creating art. But that changed five years ago, as Caiola decided to dedicate more time to painting.
It resulted in a wonderful collection of surreal lifelike characters on 48-inch by 36-inch wooden displays.

Each painting contains symbols that illustrate the essential aspects of the character. Caiola says the exhibition captures one moment in the life of the protagonist, with some muses, guardians and saints more present and in focus than others.

Best Pancakes in Philly

Fluffy pancakes are one of the trends right now all over the world. But, where do you think the best pancake in Philadelphia is?

Philadelphia’s Cafe La Maude was named the best restaurant for pancakes in the state by Yelp, according to Insider.com. The list was made by looking at which
restaurants had a high mentioning of “pancakes” in reviews, and then leveraging that with the total volume and ratings of those reviews.

Cafe La Maude is really a delight. People are pretty much obsessed with their tiramisu pancakes and the Framboise, which is a ginger snap chai pancake with
raspberry yogurt, banana creme brûlée, shaved chocolate and creme anglaise, served with pistachios and rose petals.

Want to try Cafe La Maude’s pancakes for yourself? It’s located at 816 N. 4th St. in the Northern Liberties neighborhood of Philadelphia.

What about you? Who do you think, has the best pancake in Philly?

The restaurant’s walls and ceilings are covered with eye-catching décor. From tribal masks, to fairy lights, to a large,

Beautiful Homes, Beautiful Neighborhood

It’s no secret that Northern Liberties has been growing rapidly for some time now. From entertainment, to dining, and now real estate. Liberty Square is a 43 home development that has very limited availability left due to such incredible features! 1-2 car garages, a roof deck, finished basement, hardwood floors, and open floor plans just to start, it’s easy to understand why this community has been snatched up! The neighborhood is within walking distance to some of the most frequented Northern Liberties hot spots. A Philly favorite, Federal Donuts, just a short jaunt away for a morning pick-me-up of hot and fresh donuts with delicious coffee just waiting for you. Or maybe you’re more of a hops and barley kind of person, well YARD’s Philly  is just a hop, skip and a jump over for some great neighborhood brews. Whether you’re looking for brunch, a beer garden, cool bar food or just dinner, Silk City Diner is the place to be. And you can keep it authentic by swinging by Pura Vida for some delicious Tacos. All on your own two feet, these locations and more are just steps away from beautiful luxury living at Liberty Square.N 6th-FULL-29.jpg
