There’s no shortage of great places to eat in Roxborough & Manayunk and now there’s a new favorite to add to the list . . . Tavern on Ridge & Darling Nikki’s BBQ in Central Roxborough. The collaboration between these two local business officially begins on Sunday, August 25th, but you can go by for a taste during their soft opening this week. As a big fan of barbecue, I had to go as soon as possible and it was definitely worth it. They will be a great addition to the local restaurant scene.

There’s nothing more daunting than not knowing where to start, especially when it comes to big house projects… right before you plan to put your home on the market. Tackling the long to-do list of cleaning the house, purging the items you don’t need, and organizing the ones that you do can seem unmanageable, especially on top of the whole selling your home thing but it doesn’t have to be.
Take a deep breath (really, do it right now) and think about the end goal of selling your home. Then, grab a pen and paper (or use your phone) and start making a list of every task. The satisfaction that comes with crossing something off your list is like no other, and the more accomplished you feel, the more ready you’ll be to tackle the next item on the list.
