These Are The People In Your Neighborhood: Jen Adams

November 2, 2012

Time for another installment of an every-so-often online feature, where we introduce members of our extended (and sometimes immediate!) family and get their take on the important things. This edition features Hog Island Press’s favorite Philly mom-to-be, the lovely and ever-tasteful maven of fashionable domesticity Jen Adams. Enjoy, check back for more of these in the future, and don’t forget – we’re all neighbors here at Hog Island Press.

Hog Islan Press, Jen Adams, Hugo Adams, Rex Adams

Who are you?
I moved to Philadelphia 14 years ago from South Central PA, during the first ecommerce boom and the Khyber’s heyday. I remember when the Standard Tap arrived as this new “gastropub” thing.  I’m a huge fan of Philly and appreciate all of her history and quirks. I’m also super-pregnant and married to Mr. Hog Island Press.

What’s your favorite Philly sandwich?
The Chicken Salad at Rachael’s Nosheri – this place is an absolute delight, try the pickles – or – The Arista (suckling pig, sorry) at Paesano’s – or – the Italian Hoagie with Sharp Provolone at Salumeria in the Reading Terminal Market – beats any of those other guys.

What’s your favorite Philly hidden culinary gem?
Mr. Martino’s – You’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a restaurant in a Jean-Pierre Jeunet movie.  You’ll eat baked ricotta and lemon tarts.  You’ll snicker with the mister himself.  It’s a special spot.

Describe your perfect day in Philadelphia.
Start the day by walking the dog down Passyunk Avenue with my husband, visiting with neighbors and friends along the way. Eventually we pick up croissants from Artisan Boulanger Patissier.  Maybe in the afternoon we go and see a movie at the Ritz.  Later we share a dish at a potluck dinner with friends in a South Philly rowhome.

What are some of your favorite regional road trip destinations?
The ‘Greater New Hope/West Jersey Special’ – especially great if you can spend the night at a friend’s house in New Hope, stargazing on a Summer night with great food and wine. Then, get up the next day and hit the Golden Nugget Flea Market near Lambertville, NJ – hands down one of the best around. If you do go in Summer, the surly vendors are extra anxious to negotiate.  It gets hot out there! Don’t forget to grab lunch at It’s Nutts – don’t let the name fool ya. And if time and weather allows the opportunity to take a dip in the Delaware, go ahead do a little toobin. FYI – you want Hulk Hogan, not the Hot Dog Man.

Another great trip is the ‘Longwood Gardens & Victory Brew Pub Day.’ And run for your life in downtown Phoenixville at least once.

What’s your favorite Philly song/artist, past or current?
Solomon Burke “the King of Rock n’ Soul” is my absolute favorite. His voice is one of the greatest of all time – I could listen to him sing Happy Birthday and think it was the best song I’ve ever heard. I also have to give some love to the Dead Milkmen. “We only have it AYEced!”

Also, the incredible account of the Sigma Kids (including Dive Bar Den Mother Patty Doobie), David Bowie and our town is one of my favorite Philly stories of all-time.

What’s your favorite HIP design?
Water Ice is Nice. Truer words have never been spoken.

Thanks Jen! Looking great in that ‘Parlez Vous Franzke?’ customized number, too. Also, thanks to Hugo (the official mascot of Hog Island Press – you bet we love French Bulldogs) for sitting in on that photo shoot as well. Until next time, do remember that Love Is The Message – and we are family.

These Are The People In Your Neighborhood: Heather Nash

September 14, 2012

Time for another installment of an every-so-often online feature, where we introduce members of our extended family and get their take on the important things. This edition features South Philly supermom/scooter enthusiast/girl-in-the-know Heather Nash (and toddler-in-the-know Marlo!). Enjoy, check back for more of these in the future, and don’t forget – we’re all neighbors here at Hog Island Press.

Hog Island Press, Heather Nash

Who are you?
I am a Masshole who’s been living in Philadelphia for the past 16 years. I recently reproduced and am the mother of a baby girl named Marlo.

What’s your favorite Philly sandwich?
Dude. Ok. This is hard. So overall, I would half to say the Roast Pork Sandwich from John’s Roast Pork. But that’s, like, a special occasion sandwich for me. For everyday realness, the Chicken Cutlet Hoagie from Fat Joe’s on 3rd and Shunk. (with hot peppers.)

What’s your favorite thing/place to eat in Philly, non-sandwich?
There are so many but I will limit my selections to establishments south of Washington Ave. The Pizazz Pizza at Cacia’s Bakery. N13/Kari Bihun at Sky Café. Salt and Pepper Squid at Nam Phuong. Ginger Ale Water Ice at Italianos. Cheese Tacos from La Lupe. Tacos A La Plancha from Los Gallos.

Describe your perfect day in Philadelphia.
It would be a crisp fall day. We would do something fun and outdoorsy, like Italian Market or wander around Old City. Later on, there would be a trip to Franklin Fountain for the Great Pumpkin Sundae – so I guess it would have to be October.

What are some of your favorite baby-friendly places & activities around town?
Anyplace that is already noisy, so if your kid has a superfreakout no one will give you the hairy eyeball. The baby could scream full throttle at The Pub in Pennsauken and no one would know. We enjoyed touring the Battleship New Jersey – just bring a baby carrier instead of a stroller. Casual dining at Sketch Burger and Memphis Taproom Hot Dog Garden.

What are some of your favorite area road trip destinations?
Wildwood all the way! Me and my babydaddy and some of our friends from up and down the east coast have put on a big scooter rally there for the past 2 years. It works well for us because, unlike most scooter rally locales, in Wildwood we are not the worst people there in terms of behavior.

What’s your favorite Philly band?
Sweatheart!

What’s your favorite Hog Island Press design?
Spot’s Taken! You could fill a ballroom with all of the spotsaving chairs I saw during the last big snowstorm. Not just chairs, too… spotsaving recycle bins, spotsaving buckets, spotsaving laundry baskets…

———————–
More about Heather and Marlo: when not scooting down the shore or winning Cutest Baby Ever contests, these two can often be found scouting out civic gems while representing South Philly in their t-shirts and one-pieces. Looking great guys, thanks!

These Are The People In Your Neighborhood: Conor Corcoran

September 8, 2012

Welcome to another installment of an every-so-often online feature, where we introduce members of our extended family and get their take on the important things. This edition features Philly star counsel/promoter/jazz apostle/agent of urban grace Conor Corcoran. Enjoy, check back for more of these in the future, and don’t forget – we’re all neighbors here at Hog Island Press.

Hog Island Press, Conor Corcoran

Who are you?
I’ve tried all the major religions, and most of the minor ones. I’ve worshipped Buddha, Allah, Brahma, Vishnu, Siva, trees, mushrooms, and Isadora Duncan. I know things.

What’s your favorite Philly sandwich?
The cheesesteak from Ishkabibble’s at 4th and South. The people watching’s tremendous, and it’s delicious. I don’t give a hoot what people say about Geno’s… it’s like moving to the suburbs, or being forced to watch football on a Sunday: Rage, rage against the dying of the light!

What’s your favorite thing to eat in Philly, non-sandwich?
Bistrot La Minette (which is truly one of the most delightful dining spaces in the entire city) used to serve this appetizer that consisted of five or six mussels plucked from their shells, strategically encasing a single poached egg, on top of a wee piece of brioche and smothered – absolutely smothered, laid on thicker than Teddy P in heat smothered – in a gravy, au poivre roux. If I had to choose between saving my mother’s life, or having one of those things, be sure to tell my Momma that I’m really gonna miss her.

Describe your perfect day in Philadelphia.
Let’s start with the Chuffle Shuffle Hustle, on an Indian Summer morning, past Boathouse Row and about Kelly Drive. Then, a certain someone will magically appear at Philadelphia International, and Jerry Blavat will chauffeur us to Carman’s Country Kitchen. Fergus Carey will serve us Bellinis, hand wrought from the tears of Catholic schoolchildren, and then we’ll stop by my parents’ house for tea. Time, at 13th and Sansom, will reserve the entire restaurant for us for dinner, where Wynton Marsalis will be opening for Ernest Stuart, because Ernest Stuart Don’t Start No Sh*t.

And shortly before bedtime, Jim Gardner will nonchalantly report that President Obama was re-elected in a landslide, and that no one was killed in the City of Brotherly Love and Sisterly Affection. That would be a perfect day in Philadelphia.

IYO, who was the most important or intriguing Philadelphia political figure of the modern era?
The Philadelphia Lawyer. You can swiftly shout Ed Rendell or Willard Rouse, Bart Blatstein or Vince Fumo, but they’re all tips of the iceberg. If you want to know what’s going on in town, and where the power players are, and how and when and why things are happening, talk to a connected barrister.

What’s your favorite Philly song/artist, past or current?
I’d love to tell you Billy Ward and the Dominoes, or the Dead Milkmen, or Jimmy Smith. But at the end of the day, I have to say that it’s Tommy Conwell, hands down. He’s been to the mountaintop, and he’s seen the Promised Land. He’ll see it again, too, if he tells me one more time that the 80s are coming back.

What’s your favorite fact or artist of Philadelphia’s criminally-overlooked Jazz legacy?
When Miles Davis would come to visit John Coltrane in Strawberry Mansion, Coltrane used to bring Miles and his golf clubs across the street to the driving range, which is still in operation there. Can you imagine such a thing? And according to Jimmy Heath, they all used to drink together in front of a favorite bartender named Freddie Tolbert, who was always begging for money when he wasn’t slinging gin. And that, ladies and gentleman, gave birth to the song “Freddie the Freeloader.” Right here in the 215.

What’s your favorite Hog Island Press design?
‘Yous’ is my favorite. They broke the mold, daddio.

———————–

Thanks Conor, and you look smashing in it, too. More about J. Conor Corcoran, Esq.: a true Philadelphia intellectual tour de force, Conor can often be found in close proximity to quality tenor saxophone and even better conversations. A friend to the cause and a cause to befriend, here at Hog Island Press we all agree that this man needs to write (way) more often. Some of Conor’s recent exploits on the keyboard can be found here. Thanks Conor!

These Are The People In Your Neighborhood: Tran Nguyen

August 27, 2012

Welcome to another installment of an every-so-often online feature, where we introduce members of our extended family and get their take on the important things. This edition features Philly designer/seamstress/tastemaker Tran Nguyen (& Frenchie pal Bea Arthur). Enjoy, check back for more of these in the future, and don’t forget – we’re all neighbors here at Hog Island Press.

Hog Island Press, Tran Nguyen

Who are you?
I’m an Asian person that sews stuff : ) . I’m just Tran, a regular Philly girl… straightforward, opinionated, loud, and casual. I currently work for Philadelphia-based design studio, Fabric Horse as a stitcher and production manager. If you order anything from Fabric Horse, I’m the girl that made it.

What’s your favorite Philly sandwich?
The Wawa “Gobbler” hehe …no, I’m  kidding. The “Special” on rye bread from The Original Turkey in Reading Terminal Market. It’s hand-carved turkey, Russian dressing, and coleslaw with a pickle on the side. I usually hate coleslaw but on that sandwich it’s perfect!

What’s your favorite thing to eat in Philly, non-sandwich?
Hmmm… anything from Ippolito’s Seafood on 13th & Dickinson. Their crab cakes are the best I’ve ever had. When you bite into their crab cake sandwich huge chunks of crab meat just start to break off. Those crab cakes are off the hook!

What comes to mind when you think of Philadelphia’s fashion legacy?
I’ve always loved that at one point there were some really grand department stores along Market street back in the 50s. The buildings are/were really beautiful landmarks like Wanamaker’s and Gimbel’s that housed really high end fashions, but also because a lot of women were still making their own clothing they offered sewing goods so they could replicate modern fashions on their own. At the time, people went to those department stores to follow fashion and home trends. Those department stores had a lot more prominence back then than they do today. They were “lifestyle” stores.

Describe your perfect day in Philadelphia.
I’ve been trying to enjoy all the summer/food festivals all over Philly this year. A great day for me would be waking up early and grabbing a coffee with my partner and our French Bulldog Bea Arthur and walking over to an outdoor festival; grabbing some food and walking around with some drinks and running into friends; enjoying the live music and local crafts; finding a spot to park ourselves for a couple hours and just people watch then wrapping up the day cooking dinner together or with a nice long bike ride together. There definitely has to be good coffee, a walk with Bea, and a bike ride involved.

What’s your favorite Philly song/artist, past or current?
Joan Jett! She was discovered in LA but she was born in Philly so that makes her a Philly girl. Favorite Philly song… would have to be “I Can’t Go For That (No Can Do)” by Hall & Oates because you can’t help dancing to that song!

What’s your favorite Hog Island Press design?
Spot’s Taken because it will always remind me of living on East Passyunk Ave. It’s a personal reminder of a specific time and place in my life and not only is it Philly pride but it’s SOUTH Philly pride.

What’s Bea’s favorite Philly hangout spot?
Anywhere there’s lots of people. She loves to people watch. We take her to Black N’ Brew on East Passyunk Ave. almost every morning and sit right on the corner so we can enjoy a coffee, and she’ll just sit on the sidewalk or sit in my lap and people watch. Their outdoor seating has really good shade and water bowls so she really likes to chill on that corner, and usually anyone that walks by wants to pet her. Plus, the owners give her dog treats!

———————–

More about Tran Nguyen: She began sewing when she was five years old in her mom’s dry cleaning & tailoring shop, ultimately attending Drexel University for Fashion Design. She currently works for Fabric Horse, a design and sewing studio that prides themselves in USA handmade quality (and highly fashionable!) products. She does costuming on the side, and is preparing to launch her own brand to do freelance patternmaking, sewing, and technical design. She also did an sweet job customizing that ‘YOUS’ shirt above – thanks Tran!

These Are The People In Your Neighborhood: Matt McFerron

August 23, 2012

Welcome to another installment of an every-so-often online feature, where we introduce members of our extended family and get their take on the important things. This edition features bartender/ace of aromatic administration Matt McFerron. Check back for more of these in the near future, and don’t forget – we’re all neighbors here at Hog Island Press.

Hog Island Press, Matt McFerron

Who are you?
I’m your gracious (yet sometimes salty) host. I’m your friend, your confidant. I guide your way to good food, good drinks, but most of all… good times. I know a lot more about you than you know about me. I’m your bartender.

What’s your favorite Philly sandwich?
Cosmi’s roast pork with sharp provolone and broccoli rabe.

What’s your favorite thing to eat in Philly, non-sandwich?
Slice of pizza from Lorenzo’s original location at 9th & Christian. There’s something about walking up to that window and grabbing a slice to go. Like a lot of folks though, I have a tendency to fold it up like a sandwich, so I hope that still counts.

What’s you favorite Philly bar/bartender/beverage?
I’ve had lots of great nights in lots of great Philly bars, but I’d be remiss not to place Johnny Brenda’s at the top. A pint of Yards Philly Pale Ale along with a shot of Irish whiskey served by Regina, Tracy, Candace, and/or Kristen made for a good time… every time.

You have 24 hours to kill in Philly – what do you do?
If it’s summer and the Fightin’s are in town, I’m headed down to root for the home team. I’m taking a stroll through Fishtown, Northern Liberties, Center City, and South Philly. I’m checking in at Hog Island Press HQ. I’m eating well, drinking well, and probably having a few laughs along the way.

What’s your favorite Philly song/artist, past or current?
Favorite song: Anything by King God. Favorite past artist: The Capitol Years, hands down. Current artist: Blood Feathers.

What’s your favorite Hog Island Press design?
World Kruking Champs.

What’s the most annoying thing about the Atlanta Braves?
Where do I start? Freddie FreemanBrian McCannChipper JonesDan UgglaTyler Pastornicky… take your pick. Their fans (or lack thereof) and their tomahawk chop. The fact that Turner Field still insists on playing Alan Jackson’s “Chattahoochee” at every single game. Their broadcast team of Chip Caray and Joe Simpson. The list goes on…

———————–

More about Matt McFerron: One of the finest Southern gentlemen that Philly has had the pleasure of adopting in quite some time, those Southern Nights eventually came calling for his return several years ago. After making station stops in New Orleans (at Susan Spicer’s Bayona) and Atlanta (at Hugh Acheson’s Empire South), Matt found his way back to his former home of Athens, GA with his pit mix, where he spends most of his free time fermenting his own brand of tantalizing aromatics, Buster’s Bitters. Until recently he could be found working his magic behind the bar at Farm 255, but keep an eye out for a late Summer ’13 opening of The Old Pal, of which Matt is a co-owner. Thanks Matt, and good luck with the new venture!

These Are The People In Your Neighborhood: Jay Laughlin

August 3, 2012

Time for another installment of an every-so-often online feature, where we introduce members of our extended family and get their take on the important things. This edition features a true Philly psych-pop pioneer, emissary of sweet fuzz and all-around rad dude Jay Laughlin. Enjoy, check back for more of these in the future, and don’t forget – we’re all neighbors here at Hog Island Press.

Hog Island Press, Jay Laughlin

Who are you?
Singer, songwriter, guitar player, husband, beer lover, mediocre “beer league” softball player that currently resides in lovely South Philly.

What’s your favorite Philly sandwich?
Chicken cutlet hoagie from Cosmi’s. It’s a perfect sandwich.

What’s your favorite Philly food, non-sandwich?
I have to go with Dimitri’s. Shrimp Pil Pil, Sauteed Mussels, Octopus?!! Always a great meal.

What’s your favorite Philly slice?
If I have to keep it in Philly I’d say La Rosa on Broad and Snyder, but to be honest I’m not the biggest fan of the slice places around here. If there was a slice place that was even close to how good People’s Pizza in NJ is, I’d be there at least once a week. Anytime I have to cross the bridge I make it a point to get there!

What’s your all-time favorite Philly venue?
Johnny Brenda’s hands down, and not just because I work there. I’ve had played plenty of shows at JB’s before ever working at the venue. I’ve played a lot of small clubs around the country in my day and not many places treat and respect the bands the way JB’s does that’s for sure. On top of that they have a great sound system and lighting, so it’s always pleasure to see/hear a show there.

What’s your favorite Philly hidden gem?
Besides the half price beers at the POPE’s happy hour?

As an avid bike rider I’m a big fan of the Schuykill River bike trail. Not that it’s really a secret, but it’s a great place to get out of the car traffic and get a good long ride in. Great scenery and if you ride out a bit you end up cruising though some really nice wooded areas by Wissahickon Park. A quick and easy way to escape the city whenever you feel the need.

Who’s your all-time favorite Phillies personality?
Harry Kalas. He was and always will be the “voice” of the team. When I was a kid I always thought Bake McBride was pretty awesome. First, his name was Bake! Second, go ahead and Google his baseball card pictures. Bake looks “baked” in every one! My favorite current player is Chooch. He’s the definition of a hard working, get the job done Philadelphia baseball player.

What’s your favorite Philly song/artist, past or current?
Philly “song” would be Ween’s “Freedom of ’76”. Favorite Philly band would be The Photon Band. Art Difuria has consistently put out great albums with amazing songs, but seeing him get into the “zone” with his guitar in a live setting is just mind blowing. He always makes me feel like I need to practice a lot more then I do. My favorite current Philly band is The War On Drugs. Their latest album “Slave Ambient” is a great listen.

What’s your favorite Hog Island Press design?
High Apple Pie In The Sky. Such a sweet design!

———————–

More about Jay Laughlin: Anyone who knows their way around Philly’s rich music history has certainly crossed paths with Jay’s rock portfolio. He’s left quite the impression on the stages of this town and beyond, from his early days spent in the seminal hardcore band Turning Point through his legendary noise-pop group Lenola (and subsequent Like A Fox). Jay can currently be found on stage fronting JJL (Facebook), and occasionally wearing a ‘Dr. Is In’ t-shirt. Do yourself a favor and check out JJL. Thanks Jay!

These Are the People In Your Neighborhood: Richard Frey

July 20, 2012

Welcome back for another installment of an every-so-often online feature, where we introduce members of our extended family and get their take on the important things. This edition features a true Philadelphia original, local historian/tour guide/painter/liver of life, Richard Frey. Do check back for more of these in the future, and don’t forget – we’re all neighbors here at Hog Island Press.

Hog Island Press, Richard Frey

Who are you?
I am me and you are you and we are all togethe-e-er. No, I’m an old guy, and I’ve done many things from San Jose to Greenwood (as a staff member of the SNCC) to New York. But I was born and raised in Philly, and have been living back here since 1979.

What’s your favorite Philly sandwich?
The Italian Hoagie made at Tastebuds Market, 24th and Lombard, is hard to top. Or, peanut butter, butter, and raspberry jam on oatmeal bread at 11 o’clock in my Philly kitchen.

What’s your favorite Philly food, non-sandwich?
Tapas at Tinto are great, but oysters on half shell at the ‘Buck A Shuck’ Happy Hour at the Sansom Oyster House are tough to beat.

What’s your favorite way to spend a day off in Philadelphia?
Hanging out on various stoops and benches with friends who share tastes similar to mine.

What’s your favorite Philly hidden gem?
Doobies Bar, 22nd and Lombard – not that many know it (though I’ve be relaxing there for 34 years). Off the beaten path, yet sophisticated to the nth degree.

What are some of your favorite Philadelphia historical facts?
At the time of the American Revolution 10% of the city’s population was free African Americans. Wilson Goode (born August 19, 1938) was the first African American mayor of Philadelphia.

What’s your favorite Philly song/artist, past or current?
Paul Robeson singing “My Lord What a Morning” – my family listened to Robeson sing on 78 records in the 40s and 50s. We thought the world of him and his ideals, and I’ll never forget his powerful baritone.

What’s your favorite Hog Island Press design?
Water Ice is Nice.

What’s your favorite Philadelphia charity?
The Welcome Center on Chestnut Street btw 21st and 22nd, which offers people on the street a place to socialize, eat lunch, and find comfort.

More about Richard Frey: After producing and guiding diverse historical, architectural, and cultural tours for more than 12 years, Richard decided to start Your Philadelphia Tour, LLC, to reach out to a wide variety of groups and individuals seeking tours. And that Philly Laureate shirt he’s wearing on the South Street bridge certainly doesn’t hurt his esteemed credibility when discussing matters like local literature and locomotion. If interested in arranging one of the most unique tours in this most unique town, be sure to get in touch with him through his site or on Facebook.

Editor’s note: For those interested in a recently-digitized punk rock time capsule, be sure to check out some pages from Richard’s Tuesday Night newsletter, a stapled CBGB’s staple from 1977.

These Are the People In Your Neighborhood: R. Bradley Maule

July 4, 2012
Welcome to a new every-so-often online feature, where we introduce members of our extended family and get their take on the important things. We start with photographer/journalist/intrepid explorer of America’s back roads, R. Bradley Maule – known to many as B. Love. Do check back for more of these in the future, and don’t forget – we’re all neighbors here at Hog Island Press.
 

Hog Island Press, R. Bradley Maule

Who are you?
Who who, who who.

What’s your favorite Philly sandwich?
The Sinatra from Sarcone’s, hands down. Even Steve’s Prince of Steaks‘ whiz wit and anything from Paesano’s have to get in line behind the Sinatra.

What’s your favorite Philly food, non-sandwich?
Tie between Johnny Brenda’s octopus with a side of their (old shoestring) fries drenched in Crystal hot sauce and Honey’s biscuits & gravy with a latke.

What’s your favorite Philly secret gem?
The Conrail Yards and the coal dumper along the Delaware River in Port Richmond.

Who’s your all-time favorite Phillies personality?
In spite of how the past two seasons have ended, Ryan Howard has been my favorite player in this Golden Age of Phillies baseball, but personality wise, it’s hard to beat class acts like Jim Eisenreich and Harry Kalas.

What’s your favorite Philly song/artist?
The song, appropriately and without a doubt, has to be TSOP by MSFB. It’s what I listened to at volume 10 the night the Phils won in ’08. It’s hard to choose just one artist, though, when you have a longtime legacy that includes Coltrane, Teddy, Dead Milkmen, Hoagie Boates, and the current run of talent like Sweet Lights, Kurt Vile, War on Drugs, Nightlands, Dr Dog, etc. But only one? Ween.

What’s your favorite Hog Island Press shirt?
Has to be I (LA) LA. It’s a first edition HIP, and it speaks to the beloved voice of the beloved Home 9. A close second is the YOUS shirt. It’s easily the most appropriate re-appropriation of Robert Indiana’s oft-appropriated LOVE.

———————–

More about R. Bradley Maule: His fine photojournalism work can be found in various online dens of good taste, including places like: Portland Urban Resource, Maule of America, and the Philly classic Philly Skyline. He also currently holds the dubious title of Hog Island Press West Coast Satellite Ambassador of Good Will and Fine Times, and looks great (in the above self-portrait) rocking that DWBC shirt at the John Day Fossil Beds National Monument.
