Cliff Stevens and his wife Veruschka moved to the Pajama Factory from Philadelphia not long ago. Cliff is the brains behind CultureSpots, a program to help young people (and old!) gain a new appreciation for the treasures found in museums.

Say Hello to Dan Berberich

There’s an excellent new blog in town, one with a heavy emphasis on art and entertainment, which is, of course, something very near and dear to our hearts: PortObserver.com.

Started by Pajama Factory alumnus Matthew Parrish, it contains some very high quality writing in a format that allows them to dig deeper and find the story behind the story. Case in point is this piece on Tim Miller’s piece at Converge Gallery.

Go read that piece and put the site in your list of daily-read bookmarks. After that, head over to their Facebook page and click “like”.

Todd Rice

Factory denizen Todd Rice is the subject of a new article over on Port Observer, a great looking new site focusing on our area. (Thanks for the tip, Matthew Parrish!)

Todd Rice’s ‘Alien Sanctuary’ at the Pajama Factory
By MATTHEW PARRISH, editor@portobserver.com

On Facebook, artist Todd Rice often posts pictures of movie monsters — the Creature from the Black Lagoon, for example — encroaching upon scantily clad women frozen in horror or engaged in epic battles (King King verses a giant snake!). He has also shared amusing behind-the-scenes photos of a human dwarfing Godzilla simply by standing next to the surprisingly small, toy-sized creature, and Ultraman hugging his large, lizard-like foe. It’s the type of imagery one would expect and hope for from a guy who grew up spending his Friday and Saturday nights glued to the television watching old horror movies.

Cold Brew!

Way Cool Beans

At first glance, this rather suspicious-looking collection of laboratory glassware and slowly dripping fluid may look like something from Heisenberg’s laboratory, but it’s actually what’s known as a ‘Cold Brew’ coffee making system.

When you cold brew coffee, ice water is very slowly dripped through coarse-ground coffee beans. The result is a very flavorful coffee that’s much lower in acid and lacking the bitterness of the coffee you’re probably used to drinking.

Stop by Way Cool Beans to give it a try!

Mindful Harvest

When she’s not tending the greenhouse at the Pajama Factory, Sally Rizzo’s seemingly boundless enthusiasm for all things green and growing finds itself at the Lose Community Garden as a part of Mindful Harvest.

Keep up the great work, Sally!
