The budding Spring Arts District looks primed to become a serious beer destination. Joining Love City Brewing, Roy-Pitz Barrel House and Yards will be Triple Bottom Brewing, which has found a home at 915 Spring Garden St. in a former Reading Railroad building. What sets the newcomer apart is a focus on a “triple bottom line” that measures impact on “beer, people and the planet.” In partnership with Project HOME and PowerCorps PHL, some of the staff positions will go to people who have faced barriers to employment. The effort goes beyond just getting folks on the payroll; it extends to every facet of the business.
A pair of teen boys were stabbed in a bloody fight that broke out in Eighth Street Station Wednesday afternoon. Violence happens too often in this city, but this incident was notable because it happened right in the center of everything, in broad daylight, with plenty of SEPTA cops and employees around. Witnesses were seriously freaked out. "It's something that shouldn't be happening in the center of the city," one person told NBC10, "because I look at this as being a safe haven." Authorities are still looking for suspects. After being in critical condition, the boys have been upgraded to stable, per 6ABC.

Will this movie measure up to their expectations? Here's what they said (no spoilers).
Rep. Lou Barletta, a hard-nosed Republican who championed Trump's approach to immigration law, is running to unseat Sen. Bob Casey. In a recent fundraiser email, Barletta tried to link his opponent to billionaire hedge fund manager Tom Steyer, saying they were allies in the fight to “eliminate our borders.” Does his claim about Casey, a moderate Democrat, have any teeth? We put it to the PolitiFact PA test.
