Lipkin’s started their kosher bakery at 4th and McKean in South Philly nearly 50 years ago. The famous bakery then relocated to Rhawnhurst, where it became a staple for breads, pastries, cakes, and knishes. Now, Lipkin’s is coming home to South Philadelphia!
Lipkin’s Bakery recently opened up a new storefront in the Whitman neighborhood of South Philly at 2153 S. Hancock St. South Philly residents anxiously awaited the opening. The line was around the block!
Otis & Pickles didn’t last very long, but luckily Wander Inn is here to take its place.
Last year, the owner of The Dive and Watkins Drinkery purchased the taproom at Third and Porter Streets in South Philadelphia that last operated as Otis & Pickles. He renamed the gastropub The Wander Inn, after the historic Wander Inn that once stood at 18th and Federal Streets in Point Breeze before becoming the home of American Sardine Bar.
We haven’t read any recent press releases or announcements about the opening of Wander Inn, but at least a soft opening must have happened over the past weekend (according to all the untappd checkins we’ve seen).

Many philly.com readers agreed with Saffron and criticized the councilman.
Squilla, who allegedly ‘represents’ me, doesn’t represent me or my values. And further, I don’t think most City Council people do. They should be out of development, city planning, and urban design issues, allowing the City Planning Design Office handle these through a robust city-wide effort. The best cities do; as we did many years ago. Unfortunately, the piggish, self-serving representation, turning the neighborhood districts into their own fiefs, is appalling. They haven’t a clue about sustainability, design, urban design, Smart Cities, the progressive initiatives of the Water Department saving the city from potentially billions of dollars of infrastructural replacements, or any other aspect of making cities safe, clean and wonderful places to live.
Personally, I would wish that Mr. Squilla resign. And the rest of Council. The government of this city is not for the people but for themselves, time and again. Short sighted, parochial, profit hungry, and likely still paid on the side.
Passyunk Post has not been the same since the disappearance of their staff writer Taylor Farnsworth and the website’s subsequent hiatus in February. The difference is clear in the content and depth of their articles. Recent articles seem to lack direction, with more fluff and filler pieces. This begs us to ask the question everyone has been thinking: What happened?
Passyunk Post was founded in 2012 by Albert Stumm, who wrote and published most of the articles a few years back. In recent years, the bulk of the writing obligation has landed on Taylor Farnsworth. Now that Farnsworth has gone missing, an Anthony C has taken over. No explanation has been given. We will just have to wait and see whether this staff writer change is permanent or not.

Today, we got report of the new bus shelters being put up on the Southwest corner of Broad St and Oregon Ave, where route 7 and G runs. We received some inquiries last Friday when the old bus shelter was torn down and completely removed. In less than a week, the new transit shelter is up and almost functional.
That is a pretty quick turn around time for this area of the city. Let’s hope the new shelters on the other routes will be built just as quickly.
