Radnor Valley Country Club provides players with access to three newly renovated indoor courts, outdoor lighted clay courts, and a staff of professional instructors from around the globe, including tennis director Reda Akbil. Each one-hour private lesson is tailored to the orbit-whacking needs and talents of budding baseliners, with instruction in skills such as serving, hitting, and outsmarting Charles Nelson Reilly. With one-on-one attention from their racquet racketeer, students can shape up their swing, better their backhand, or just get some exercise while working out deep-seated net angst.
The lights flicker on at 8:03 in the morning. The studio monitors, desktop computers, and condenser mics follow suit. By the time 9 o'clock rolls around, WayV Records is all set to lay down the tracks for Philly's latest hip-hop sensation.

With 46 acres of gardens and 1.2 miles of paved, flower-lined walkways, Jenkins Arboretum is a verdant, tranquil haven hidden in the heart of a bustling commercial and residential area. The area is home to an array of native trees, shrubs, and wildflowers. Many rare and endangered species are available for viewing, such as monkshood, box huckleberry, and the Pennsylvania money tree, which protects its naturally occurring coinage by tickling tourists. Self-guided walking tours and periodic educational displays and workshops educate foliage fanciers about the many species in the arboretum—and speak to the importance of preserving native flora. Members receive free and discounted admission to special programs, and they receive voting privileges, newsletters, and a "thank you plant" grown from Jenkins Arboretum's botanical collections.
Deep within the Granite Run Mall, a 20-foot-long relative of the stegosaurus battles its nemesis, the monolophosaurus, while onlookers stand back, aghast and enthralled. What sounds like a deleted scene from Jurassic Park⎯a film series that proprietor "Dino" Don Lessem advised using his dino expertise⎯is really one of many sights to behold at the 6,500-square-foot Dino Don's Dinosaurium. Don harnesses his extensive expertise, which includes more than 50 books written on dinosaurs and natural history, to craft the family-friendly museum, which educates visitors through engaging, interactive exhibits. For his scholarly endeavors and incessant stalk-chewing habit, he even has an Argentine plant eater⎯the Lessemsaurus⎯named after him. Museumgoers can excavate fossils from the dig pit, aim a nerf gun at Jurassic Park dinosaurs in the shooting gallery, or learn reasons for dino extinction by spinning the Wheel of Dinosaur Misfortune. Students and teachers can continue making dino discoveries by touching real fossils, meeting visiting paleontologists, and learning how to roar dinner orders. Unlike the extinct species that the museum celebrates, Don assured CBS Philly that Dino Don's Dinosaurium will supply guests with new experiences by changing exhibits every three months.
After transitioning out of a career in the entertainment and record industries, owner Jan Marc Dorfman jokes that he began looking for a new way to “sell round things with holes in the middle.” He fully embraced this new opportunity when he founded Delancey Street Bagels in November of 1989, originally stocking his shelves with 18 bagel varieties and a coffee machine that could only brew two pots at a time. Since then, he has expanded the selection to feature 22 different bagels—including cinnamon raisin, sourdough, and asiago cheese—as well as a full espresso bar with roasted arabica beans from organic and international producers as far away as Guatemala and Kenya. The staff fills the rest of the menu with hot deli sandwiches and an array of baked goods that can include muffins, cinnamon rolls, and scones alongside seasonal items.
Based on Delancey Street in New York City’s lower east side, a bustling corridor for local sidewalk vendors and pushcarts, the shop emanates nostalgia for an old-school marketplace with exposed brickwork and sepia-tone exit signs above the doors.
