Meetup for MeFites with Mini Mefites?

I've been really out of the MetaFilter loop and would like to fall back in again. There must be some MeFites still here in Philly and I would love to hang out with them. My wife and I have a rambunctious almost 3 year old and it would be nice to bring him along too, so ideally a place that is kid-friendly would be great. [more inside]

Main Line: Revenge of the Candied Bacon

It has been quite a while since our last adventure to Tired Hands in Ardmore. The candied bacon is still on the menu and the beers are still weird and wonderful (I loved recent brews: Professor Caterpillar and Dr. Grasshopper). The only thing missing is us (I actually had one of the bartenders ask about us). [more inside]

Book Release Party: "The Tao of Chip Kelly"

The official book release of my book about the new coach of the NFL's Philadelphia Eagles (and former coach of the Oregon Ducks) will be at Theatre Exile before the 8pm showing of "The Philly Fan," a one-man show about sports. This is not a biography or Xs and Os book, but rather a look at the philosophy and innovative management strategies underlying Kelly's success at Oregon (46-7 over 4 years, a BCS bowl every year). The Tao of the title is not glib; I argue that -- wittingly or not -- Kelly's football programs are near-perfect implementations of Taoist principles such as The Uncarved Block, tzu-jan, minimizing ego and emotion, and the pursuit of spontaneity and flexibility through long experience and focused, humble observation. Book signing and reading at 7, plus a Q&A after the play.
