The Daily Meal put together a sprawling list of its 150 favorite bars in the country. That’s a whole lot of bars! Thankfully, the folks in charge of the 2019 list didn’t overlook Philadelphia’s excellent bar scene, and even managed to include one of the city’s favorites near the top. Monk’s Café, 264 S 16th St., clocks in at No. 31 on the list, the highest-ranking establishment of three Pennsylvania bars on the list. The Rittenhouse bar, which specializes in Belgian beers and Belgian cuisine, is consistently rated as one of the best bars in the city, and draws quite the varied crowd — including some guys named Jason Kelce and Connor Barwin. Here’s what The Daily Meal had to say about Monk’s: "Pennsylvania’s Monk’s Café is a Belgian beer emporium with a repertoire of rotating beers on tap and hundreds by the bottle, from the limited-supply Chimay Dorée and the drier Tripel Karmeliet on tap to … [Read more...] about Monk’s Café named one of the 35 best bars in the U.S.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump's Supreme Court nomination is expected on Monday, with three federal judges leading the pack. Here's a look at who they are (plus three more who haven't been completely counted out just yet): AMY CONEY BARRETT Barrett, 46, was a former law clerk to Justice Antonin Scalia and a longtime Notre Dame Law School professor who became a federal judge last fall. If nominated and confirmed, she would become the fourth female justice on the nine-member court and its youngest member (Justice Neil Gorsuch is now the youngest, turning 51 this August.) Barrett is considered Trump's most divisive choice, both because of her sparse record on the bench and because of her conservative religious views. At a Senate hearing last year on her nomination to the Chicago-based 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, Democrats peppered Barrett on whether her Roman Catholic faith would interfere with her work. Democrats cited a 1998 paper in which she argued that Catholic … [Read more...] about Who are Trump’s top Supreme Court contenders?

By Brad A. Johnson | [email protected] | Orange County RegisterPUBLISHED: June 28, 2018 at 11:02 am | UPDATED: June 28, 2018 at 8:03 pm Although it might sound hyperbolic to use the term “life-changing,” a cheeseburger this year indeed shattered my long-held definition of the perfect burger. This unexpected paradigm shift involved lettuce. Or, rather, the lack of it. The lettuce debate was contentious even before McDonald’s gave us the choice between a Quarter Pounder and the Big Mac. I’ve never liked anything from McDonald’s. But I do love burgers, and I have always admired a leafier recipe: Bun, meat, lettuce, tomato, onion. I could give or take a pickle. The wackier the flavors, the less I’m inclined to order it. The cheeseburger at The Mayor’s Table knocked me for a loop. It was unexpectedly naked and vulnerable. It was astoundingly delicious. After the epiphany, I began looking for other undressed burgers. I found plenty, some of which … [Read more...] about Here are the top 10 burgers of 2018, plus Burger of the Year
