    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Philadelphia Parks and Recreation is making a splash with a new program. It’s now offering teens swimming lessons through so-called “pool pop-ups.” On a gorgeous Thursday night, Parks and Rec threw its first of several teen pool pop-up parties this summer. READ MORE: 'It's So Disrespectful': Philadelphia Family Upset After Someone Vandalized Grandparents' Mausoleum“It’s a special event gauged for teenagers so they can learn how to swim and become lifeguards in the future,” Parks and Rec Deputy Commissioner of Programs Bill Salvatore said. These pop-ups may be coming to a pool near you. “They’re in every corner of the city, so Saturday we’ll be in North Philly at C.B. Moore Rec Center and from there we’ll move on. We’ll be in Kensington, South Philly, etc.,” Salvatore said. Parks and Rec hopes this exposure can lay the foundation for the lifeguards of tomorrow, or the next few years anyway. “If we get them trained now at 13 or 14, as they age into it, they’ll be ready to go,” Salvatore said. We also caught up with the star...
    When it comes to style, we are all inspired by what we see; whether it be a well-dressed celebrity, a blow-your-mind catwalk presentation or even a fashionable passerby. As fashion editors, we're moved by all of the above, and then some. We're exposed to under-the-radar labels; we get a first-hand look at collections months before they hit stores; we attend VIP events; we're tapped into brands with chic-yet-cheap offerings and we shop — a lot. To share our knowledge, FEMAIL brings you Style Swoon, a weekly series of the latest, greatest and on the verge.

    Ximena Perez remembers the day she was packing corn in a sweltering, east Contra Costa County packaging plant. The lamination process to seal the bags of grain made the warehouse feel like an oven. “Sometimes the main boss pressures us to work a lot faster,” she said, “but with the heat, you just can’t.” Then, a caravan of cars and trucks arrived, and Perez watched as women and children piled out and scrambled around the vehicles, unloading hamburgers, water and ice cold lemonade. They were Hijas del Campo, or Daughters of the Field, a group created by four working mothers who had met in early 2020 with a shared generational history: Their parents or grandparents had toiled under the same heat as Perez to give their children a step up in the United States of America. This was their way to give back, said Marivel Mendoza, the organization’s co-founder and president. Hijas Del Campo cofounders Marivel Mendoza, of Oakley, from left, Dorina Moraida, of Oakley, and Amelia Villarreal, of Santa Clara, are photographed in Brentwood, Calif., on Saturday, Oct. 23,...

    A replica of Moe’s, the community’s go-to bar and restaurant from “The Simpsons,” is coming to a Greater Washington mall. You can probably guess where: Springfield Town Center. JMC Pop Ups LLC is bringing its “Moe’s Pop Up Experience” to the Northern Virginia shopping center, in a space on the lower level by the Macy’s entrance. It will look authentic with one fairly massive difference from the cartoon version: No Duff. Or any beer for that matter. “This is not an actual bar,” per the website. “This is a family friendly event.” While the Pennsylvania version of the pop-up (also at an aptly named venue, the Springfield Mall) did have beer, JMC was unable to get the same permissions for alcohol sales in Virginia, said Sam Shutter of JMC, who had just arrived in the commonwealth Thursday to ready the Springfield Town Center space. So how did JMC replicate Moe’s? “Entirely too many episodes of The Simpsons,” Shutter said. The pop-up will be open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays beginning… Read the full story from the Washington Business Journal.

    WEST TOWN — A Bucktown store dedicated to selling handmade crafts and art is expanding to West Town and Wicker Park.  The Chicago Makers Pop-Up Shop opens its second storefront Wednesday at the West Town Chamber of Commerce’s Pop-Up Project Space, 1821 W. Chicago Ave. In early November, the business will open a third location in Wicker Park at 1279 N. Damen Ave. Each storefront will showcase about 30 small business owners from the Chicago area. Co-owners Anna Romo and Monica Little launched the first iteration of their pop-up during the 2020 holiday season, then started a semi-permanent site in Bucktown early this year. Romo said the latest expansion was driven by a steady interest from local artisans and creatives eager to sell their wares.  “There are so many creative small business owners in Chicago, and we really try to keep competition down within our store. And so because of that, we have a massive waitlist,” she said.  Credit: Quinn Myers/Block Club ChicagoPrints at the Chicago Makers Pop-Up’s new West Town location, 1821 W. Chicago Ave. Romo and...

    More On: pop-up stores Empty NYC office floors are taking on new life as artist studios Giorgio Armani opens first Hamptons pop-up shop Carbone opening a new pop-up restaurant in Southampton Nation’s capital gets its first coronavirus pop-up shop This summer, NYC is ready to pop. Right now, city eateries — serving everything from Japanese katsu to Indian street food to oysters — are opening new spinoff shops in food markets, within other restaurants, on rooftops and even inside skating rinks. Citing a dismal year of lockdowns, ever-changing regulations, staffing issues and a lack of institutional investment, pop-ups offer chefs the opportunity to express their pent-up creative energy without the risks associated with a traditional brick-and-mortar space. “These kinds of pop-ups are nice [because] you don’t think so much about the long term,” said chef Nir Sarig, who founded the Middle Eastern pop-up Eti. “So you allow yourself to be bolder and to take more risks.” Whether you’re craving a cheap sandwich or an upscale three-course meal, check out these seven pop-up restaurants that are absolutely worth braving...

Fans of the band will be able to buy its favorite McDonald's order in almost 50 different countries. This is the first time that the fast-food giant will highlight a celebrity's favorite order in more than one market. The promotion will start rolling out on May 26. McDonald's has been using its Famous Orders promotions to reintroduce consumers to its core menu items, like the Quarter Pounder burger, and to stay culturally relevant. The company kicked off the marketing strategy in September by teaming up with rapper Travis Scott. His order was so popular that it caused Quarter Pounder shortages for some McDonald's locations, and McDonald's executives told investors that the company hit multiple records across its social media accounts when the collaboration was announced. A follow-up deal with reggaeton singer J. Balvin also boosted sales. But McDonald's could surpass its prior success...
    San Francisco residents ordering sushi deliveries may have fallen victim to fakes after an eatery allegedly took the names and logos of two restaurants and fulfilled orders online. The original owner of Blowfish Sushi to Die For on Mission Street said he is considering legal action against the operators of a restaurant that is using the same name and insignia even though he owns the trademark. The restaurant once operated by Jason Teplitsky was forced to shut down in December after more than 20 years in operation, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. But he was shocked to learn that another eatery began operating out of the same location at 2193 Mission Street and was fulfilling orders online for sushi using both the original Blowfish name as well as another Tokyo-based restaurant, Wagyu Mafia. 'I don't know what to think,' Teplitsky told the Chronicle.

    By KATHLEEN SHAW, Daily News-Record HARRISONBURG, Va. (AP) — Tim Showalter Ehst began growing and selling organic vegetables at his family farm, Second Mountain Farm, four years ago on half an acre. Inspired by the collaborative nature adopted by businesses during the pandemic, he began working to develop a network between other local growers and makers who share the same sense of responsibility to produce food that’s good for people and good for the planet. On Tuesday (March 9), that dream came into focus as the first round of clients picked up orders from Rooted Market. Rooted Market’s slogan is “eat well, be well,” and the website offers an array of goodies harvested and crafted in the Shenandoah Valley, such as Staff of Life breads, Blue Ridge Bucha beverages and Mountain Branch Creamery cheeses. The concept behind the pop-up market is simple: Customers order food from local participating businesses online and choose a pickup time to come by the Ice House roundabout on Mondays or Thursdays for contact-free shopping. “This allows people again to shop from their homes, so I...

    A MUM who didn’t have a bath in her house came up with a genius way to bathe her kids - and it involves a dog pool.  The mum-of-two explained she rents her home, so wasn’t able to install a tub for a soak.  4The mum revealed she rented her home so wasn't able to install a bath Credit: Facebook But she needed some way to give her kids, aged four and one, a good scrub, and it turns out the answer was staring at her in the pet aisles.  The mum picked up an inflatable dog pool, and popped that in the shower instead.  The dog bath comfortably fits both her kids, and she said it even has a plug for easy drainage.  The mum, from Australia, raved about her purchase online, sharing snaps of her kids playing in the suds to Facebook group Kmart Hacks & Decor.  4She came up with the brilliant idea of using a pop up dog pool as a tub for her two kids Credit: Facebook She said: “Long story short I have tried...

    cityofstpete/FLICKR For the last five months, Tampa Bay (and the rest of the world) has been scrambling to navigate this new way of life. As we mourn the imminent cancellation of Halloween festivities (although Busch Gardens still wants to scare the shit out of you while socially distancing during Howl-O-Scream), we can still look forward to Christmas festivities. Wanting to raise our spirits and get spark some excitement, "Miracle at Mezzo," a Christmas-themed pop-up hosted at Intermezzo Coffee & Cocktails posted the iconic photo of Kevin McCallister from “Home Alone” along with the caption “100 DAYS UNTIL MIRACLE AT MEZZO.” This means we can expect the pop-up to return on November 27, aka Black Friday. For those unfamiliar with Miracle at Mezzo, it is a five-week Christmas celebration where the downtown St. Petersburg coffee, cocktail and oyster bar gets laced with lights, garlands, and ribbons accompanied by classic Christmas tunes. There’s even a Buddy The Elf cutout. Last year, the event poured up nine festival cocktails—including the classic “Christmapolitan” made up of vodka, elderflower, dry vermouth, spiced cranberry sauce,...
    The beautiful space that housed recently deceased Octo Fishbar will have a temporary new tenant in busy celebrity chef Justin Sutherland. Sutherland’s crew from Pearl and the Thief, the former Stillwater restaurant that was supposed to re-open in Minneapolis, but has now been shelved due to the pandemic, will run a two-month pop-up out of the restaurant. “It’s a concept I and a lot of us love, so we’re trying to nurture it along and open it eventually in the right space.” The seafood-forward restaurant will serve ticketed 7-course meals that are meant to be “elevated versions of the greatest hits from Pearl and the Thief.” Those include crawfish bisque, snow crab risotto, oysters and more.

Tickets will be $75 per person, with optional additional drink pairings or a la carte bar service. The bar will be run by the Octo staff.

    CLICK HERE if you are having a problem viewing the photos on a mobile device With millions of Californians out of work and struggling to feed their families, getting help during the coronavirus pandemic can mean waiting in a miles-long line of cars outside a food bank. Or, in some Bay Area neighborhoods, it can mean opening an unassuming refrigerator sitting on the side of the road. That’s the goal of the community fridge movement — an alternative solution to hunger popularized in New York City and now sweeping California. So far, local organizers have installed refrigerators in Oakland, San Francisco and Los Angeles, and an effort is underway to set one up in San Jose. “It’s just starting to become kind of a phenomenon,” said 25-year-old Sara Crispin, who hosts a community fridge with her housemates outside their West Oakland duplex. Volunteers stock the refrigerators with produce, milk, prepared meals and other items, which are then free for the taking by anyone who could use them whether they’re from the homeless encampment down the street or the apartment next...
    Newlyweds Princess Beatrice and Edoardo Mapelli Mozzi danced until the early hours with a small group of friends inside a pop-up pub before they spent their wedding night in a glamping pod, it has been revealed.

    See ya at the drive-in. Jason Guerrasio I went with the family to see "The Karate Kid" at a drive-in that was created in a public pool parking lot. We had a blast. It's the best thing we've done this summer. Here's how the experience was for us on a beautiful evening in Cranford, New Jersey. Visit Insider's homepage for more stories. As the pandemic continues, finding safe yet fun activities has become a priority for people around the country. For movie fanatics like me, drive-ins are the answer.  Throughout the pandemic, drive-in theaters — once the backbone of summertime entertainment decades ago — have found a resurgence thanks to the built-in social distance quality: you stay in your car to watch the movie. But there are only around 300 drive-ins still operating across the US. That leaves out a lot of moviegoers who miss that big-screen experience. However, some local theaters are getting creative. In Cranford, New Jersey, a few towns over from where I live, the local arthouse, Cranford Theater, has created a drive-in experience....

    DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) – Dallas Mayor Eric Johnson said Wednesday he will be meeting with county officials about whether the Kay Hutchison Convention Center needs to be opened for medical purposes as COVID-19 cases and hospitalizations continue to increase. During a news conference, Johnson talked about the surge in cases and hospitalizations and how he wants to be “proactive” when it comes to the city’s response. This includes discussing options with the convention center. “COVID-19 is spreading rapidly in Dallas County. The data is clear. Our case numbers and our hospitalization numbers, which we’ve been tracking daily are headed in the wrong direction,” Johnson said. “Tomorrow, we’ll have a discussion with Dallas County and the Hospital Council about whether we need to stand up the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center medical facility.” Back in April, it was announced that the convention center would open a pop-up medical facility in case hospitals run out of space during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Army Corps of Engineers and the Texas National Guard prepared the facility so it would be ready for use as a...

    LINCOLN SQUARE — The Davis Theater plans to host pop up drive-in movie events in a Lincoln Square parking lot in July. The theater at 4614 N. Lincoln Ave. hasn’t been able to screen films for the past few months because of the shutdown. The theater announced earlier this week that it’s partnering with Sterling Bay and the 2nd Ward to host drive-in events at the future home of Lincoln Yards. But that’s just one of the drive-in spots being planned. Ben Munro, Davis Theater’s co-owner, told Block Club the business will also host pop-up drive-in events next month at the Old Town School Of Folk’s parking lot that sits just behind the city lot at 4515 N. Lincoln Ave. They hope to eventually find a larger lot. “These drive-in events would be smaller and a little more sporadic on weekdays,” Munro said. “That’s the plan for now.” Munro wants the programing at these drive-ins to be more community driven so that neighbors can enjoy a social distanced night out at the movies.
