“Kids always like the messy stuff,” said camp leader Laura Stutte. “Science is important but I like the ooey gooey stuff because the kids like it. The messier the better. The kids started a few experiments on Monday that they will watch throughout the camp. The first is called the naked egg. Eggs are submerged in a clear glass full of vinegar and left for days. “It was like squishy,” Ryann Sabatka said after touching her egg Tuesday. “If we leave them for a couple more days, you’ll notice that the egg shell will completely disappear and be clear,” Stutte said. After checking on their eggs, the kids moved over to check their pieces of bread that had been contaminated with swabs of germs from difference places in the YWCA building including counters, floors, tables, chairs and the sink. “We’re trying to make mold on the bread,” Ryann said. “I did mine on the floor. We took a Q-tip and swabbed it on the floor and then put it on the bread. The first big project on Tuesday was to make pyramids using only mini marshmallows and toothpicks. “If you build a pyramid, you can build it taller without it falling over,” Stutte said. “If you just build a tower, it will fall over easier. At first, the idea of building a pyramid with only the two supplies was a challenge. “I don’t know what I’m doing,” said Avery Kissinger. “What am I doing,” Emerson Kissinger asked. “Emerson I don’t know what you’re doing,” Ryann added. Soon they had it figured out and the group of five girls at one table were putting together individual pyramids to go onto the larger piece. “Ours doesn’t have to be the biggest or the tallest,” Ryann said. “It just has to be the coolest. By the end, the girls had the biggest creation in the room. “We have a lot of marshmallows but we’re going to run out of toothpicks,” Avery said. Stutte ended up giving the girls two more handfuls of toothpicks by the end of the project. “Laura we need more toothpicks,” Avery said. “We ran out again. “I think we’ll win for using the most toothpicks,” Ryann added. The girls ended up with a series of small pyramids side by side in a long piece that started out looking like a train and then with the addition of another long piece became what the girls called a Candy Land maze. “We need a security camera,” said Emma Landgren. “I know how to make it,” Avery.

Since opening in 1991, Mallorca has become an institution. The decor is from another era. The playlist is a charming mix of easy listening meets European vacation club music. An all-male staff wears a variation on the tuxedo and serves patrons with a formality like that chronicled in midcentury American novels. Far from the Mediterranean island of Mallorca, this South Side corner is more often a stage for hammered college kids, horns honking, or the urgent siren of an ambulance on a Saturday night. Hours: 11:30 a. m. -10:30 p. m. Monday through Thursday. Friday and Saturday. Basics: Mallorca is a Spanish and Portuguese restaurant with a continental menu that can seem dated but is worth a visit for the character of the place and the hospitality of the staff. Dishes: Chorizo a la plancha, pequillos rellenos, baked clams, sirloin Portuguese style. paella Valencia. whole lobster. Prices: Soup $4. 95-$5. 95. appetizers $7. 95-$12. 95. entrees $13. 95-$41. 95. Summary: Valet, private rooms, wheelchair-accessible. Noise level: Moderate. Inside, it's a respite from this. Mallorca offers intimate dining with tables tucked within a labyrinth of rooms. Hexagon-tiled floors and hand-painted tile walls remind diners of its Spanish inspiration, and the outdoor patio is lovely, with canvas sails for shade, low lights and lush vines. Owner Antonio Pereira moved the restaurant from Passaic, N. J. , to Pittsburgh nearly 25 years ago. The Portuguese native brought with him 10 employees -- two still work as servers -- and a continental menu with just enough dishes to seem Spanish or Portuguese, with red sauce dishes for die-hard Italians. Pereira and his partner Fausto Simoes are also behind Ibiza Tapas and Wine Bar that opened in 2005. If only the food were better. Dinner starts with a spongy French loaf served with diner-style butter in individually wrapped pats. It continues with an iceberg salad drizzled with Thousand Island unless you stage an intervention to ask for something else. Portuguese sausage is an appetizer special, arriving on a clay pig engulfed in flame. Once the fire dies down, a server transfers the linguiçca to a plate, slices it with a standard knife and fork, then serves. It is both endearing and. Source: www.post-gazette.com
Summer camp drop-off means my morning commute gets shaken up a bit. It takes me in new directions, and that means new places to stop for my morning 20 ounces of ice coffee. Which is a great excuse to check out of a few of South Jersey's newest coffee joints. And i'm happy to report that this self-assigned task has been entirely enjoyable, with great new places popping up with cool ideas and great uses of downtown space. Here is a look at 10 of new and tried-and-true places to get your next beat-the-heat cup of ice coffee - or whatever other coffee-type beverage gets you going. The following list is just based on my own recent experiences and in no particular order. If your favorite spot is not represented, give me a shout and I'll show them some love sometime soon. The Station, Merchantville. This downtown space could not have been more welcoming on a steamy morning. The Station: Coffee, Art and Culture is one of the newer maker spaces in the region, and one of the coolest. I am already predisposed to loving this place, because I adore poking around in old train stations. This one lies across the street from a rails-to-trails walking path and from Blue Monkey Tavern in the historic Collings House. The relatively new spot is coming together beautifully. There is freshly roasted coffee from Rich's Micro Roast, which operates on site. (At times, roasted while you wait. There are also crepes, panini, baked goods, homemade kale chips and very good iced coffee. The Station shares space with not just a coffee roaster but also Kidz Shotz Photography studio and eilandarts, an arts space that offers music lessons, arts classes, yoga, birthday parties and more. On tap: Jazz brunches, rotating art exhibits and much more from this cool addition to the scene. Common Grounds, Oaklyn. I love Clinton Street in Oaklyn. And I love seeing it re-energized with news of a microbrewery opening up and with Sara O'Brien bringing her vibrant Studio LuLoo to the neighborhood. Now, I can also get my coffee there with the arrival of Common Grounds, a spacious and very inviting space. I paid my first visit recently and was impressed with the attention to detail. The quotes on the wall are great - c'mon, how often do you see a Carly Simon quote on a wall. Not nearly enough, I say. I only got iced coffee but I must report back that I counted no fewer than EIGHT types of quiche available, as. Source: www.courierpostonline.com
