Maybe you've seen its basically-90s-era website or you've toyed with the slow machines that have broken down. Either way, you might have experienced SEPTA Key's slow and glitch-filled rollout so far. And the digital fare payment system is still only semi-public, with a full rollout still months away. So what's SEPTA doing to actually fix the problems that have plagued its long-awaited system thus far? PlanPhilly has the details.
The Sixers will honor Allen Iverson tonight at the Wells Fargo Center when they host the Lakers. This year's team is all about the bigs, and trying to figure out which one, two or three are on the floor at the same time has been an adventure for Brett Brown. We've been tracking the bigs' progress this year for you -- check out our Big Man Tracker story for everything -- but if tonight is anything like the loss to Toronto, with Joel Embiid playing PF and getting just 6 shots, it might get hard to Trust this Process.
Philly is not lacking in places to cop a cheesesteak. Whether you’re in Center City or outlying neighborhoods, chances are there’s at least one within easy walking distance — and usually more. But this is not overload. Which is why, when a favorite spot disappears, the shutdown is often met with sorrow. Sure, there’s other places to get the sandwich, but not that particular way, from those particular people. The dearly departed do live on, of course — in the fond remembrances of their former customers. This collection pays tribute to 12 great Philly cheesesteak shops that no longer exist. RIP. Here’s to the memories.

That Fishtown house with the 13 Christmas inflatables has nothing on SEPTA. The annual All District Vehicle Decoration Competition took place this week and the competition was fierce. You can check out all eight vehicles in the contest but peep the top three here. at Dilworth Park from ,
One of Pat Toomey’s strategies for getting re-elected was not committing to Trump until the last minute on Election Day. Frank Costanza would love it. He pioneered Festivus, the holiday where no religious or commercial commitments matter. Josh Shapiro wished himself into the Attorney General's office without any prior prosecution experience — just like Hermey the Elf, who'd much rather be a dentist. Here are 13 more photoshops of Philly people reimagined as Christmas movie characters.
