I'll hopefully have done this at least a couple times.

JG Domestic to Offer Sunday Supper

With all the prix fixe dinner options available in the city, it's easy to hear about a new one and just say, "Oh, yay. Another one to add to the pile." But when that new one is from Philadelphia's Culinary Emperor Iron Chef, Jose Garces, you have to take note.

Garces's Cira Center outpost, JG Domestic, will be offering Sunday Supper starting April 3. For $35 per person, you'll get a family-style meal featuring organic chicken (buttermilk fried or herb roasted), baked mac & cheese, roasted garlic and turnip mashed potatoes, and more. Plus, growlers of Victory will be available to wash it all down.

In other words: NOM.

Today's Edition of Awesome

I was thisclose to using Dio's "Holy Diver" as today's Metal Monday selection, but opted against it because I couldn't find an HQ version of the video in my two minutes hours and hours of searching. Fortunately, though, RJD earns a mention here today (at least indirectly), because of an awesome press release that hit my inbox a short while ago.

The Asian Elephant Art & Conservation Project and the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund are teaming up "to create one-of-a-kind guitars painted by the project's elephants in Thailand to raise money and awareness for both organizations." The guitars (donated by ESP) will be auctioned off, and AEACP and Stand Up and Shout will split the proceeds. This just oozes awesome.
