Culinary craftsmen at Fingers, Wings and Other Things grease ravenous fingers with hand-battered chicken tenderloins and zesty buffalo wings gracefully dunked into more than 12 homemade dipping sauces. The vibrant menu entices eyeteeth with handheld munchies such as fried pickles, mac 'n' cheese wedges, or buffalo shrimp glazed in mild, spicy, or extra-spicy sauce hot enough to garner a centerfold spread in Condiment Monthly. Guests can count their chickens before they're devoured with a basket of 10 fingers or 20 wings bedecked in a choice of savory sauces, including three types of barbecue, horseradish mayo, and honey mustard. A selection of seafood and chicken entrees heads up the main event with tasty picks such as the beer-battered fish 'n' chips platter or the grilled shrimp and chicken skewers, which unite meaty morsels more conveniently than a mailbox full of pork chops.
When Cindy Kerr's 12-year-old son, Ryan, was diagnosed with cancer in 2002, she began making pillowcases for him to brighten his hospital room and his spirits. He was so cheered by the gift that she started creating pillowcases for other children staying in the oncology unit at The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
Since its early days, Cindy Kerr's pillowcase project has grown into ConKerr Cancer, with a network of thousands of volunteers who make the pillowcases spread across North America and South Africa. ConKerr Cancer has created and delivered more than 600,000 pillowcases to children across the United States, Canada, South Africa and Great Britain in the past five years.

Taste of Fall treats Philadelphia denizens to a crisp autumn afternoon of cooking demonstrations by local chefs, wine and beer flowing freely for the tasting, and scrumptious samples from more than 15 local restaurant and farm vendors. Nibble on a gyro from Zorba's Taverna, test how many Iced by Betsy cupcakes you can fit in your mouth at once, or amiably haggle over the harvests of local farmers. A kids’ tent will pulsate with activities such as face painting, as well as yoga to appease antsy pre-teens and post-babies. The "Man Cave," meanwhile, will set the scene for budding bromances by broadcasting the Eagles vs. Redskins game. A live performance of classic covers by Back2Life will contribute to the convivial atmosphere. And to add an element of surprise that doesn't involve firing blowdarts into the crowd at random, Taste of Fall will give ticketholders a chance to win a number of spectacular raffle items. You and your family might head home with a hefty gift basket from Saks Fifth Avenue, a cooking class at Viking, or a one-night stay at Rittenhouse Bed & Breakfast with dinner at Baia and a bottle of wine.
