<![CDATA[Steve Madden Brings Back the Slinky]]> Sat, 22 Apr 2017 03:13:17 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/213*120/Steve+Madden+Slinky.jpg

From high-waisted mom jeans to crop tops and chokers, fashion trends from the '90s are back with a vengeance.   

The only thing that has been missing to complete that back-to-school look every girl in class had was the iconic Steve Madden Slinky — until now.

The New York-based footwear company has revived the popular platform slide. The 2017 version has been slightly altered with a flatter heel and added elastic in the "stretchy upper" for more flexibility, according to the Steve Madden website. 

The Slinky isn't on store shelves just yet, but they are available for pre-order on Steve Madden's website. The $69.99 shoes are expected to ship in July.

News of the retro shoe's return brought back nostalgic memories for the Slinky-wearing girl who head bopped to alternative rock and cited Cher quotes from "Clueless" while eating candy necklaces.

And despite the fact the shoes' insoles continuously slapped the bottom of your heels, announcing your arrival with loud clapping-like noises, Slinky girls can't wait to get their hands on a pair and stomp around town.

<![CDATA[Disney Reveals New Details of Star Wars-Themed Lands]]> Wed, 19 Apr 2017 18:24:45 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/199*120/Disney+Star+Wars+Theme+land.jpg

Two years after Disney announced plans to bring Star Wars-themed expansions to its parks in California and Florida, fans of the franchise finally got a behind-the-scenes look at the design and construction of the parks.

Lucasfilm and Walt Disney Imagineering creatives shared exclusive details about the new galactic lands scheduled to open at Walt Disney World and Disneyland in 2019.

During the "Star Wars and Disney Parks: A Galaxy in the Making" celebration in Orlando Saturday, new renderings were revealed in a video giving attendees insight into their collaboration — including the story behind "the mysterious destination somewhere on the Outer Rim."

"We’re creating a place that is an extension of the Star Wars universe, not a recreation of an experience that you might have already seen on screen, but something totally brand new," said Disney Imagineering Executive Creative Director Asa Kalama.

The never-before-seen land is set in a remote village that was once a bustling area along the old sub-lightspeed trade routes, but over time has become a thriving environment for port smugglers, rogue traders and adventure-seeking travelers bouncing between the frontier and uncharted space, according to Disneyland Resort spokesman George Savvas.

"There will be things in there that will feel very familiar, things in there that they’ve always wanted to see, but yet on top of that we’re also designing and creating new experiences so that it will really enhance what the Stars Wars universe is," said Star Wars’ Creative Director Doug Chiang.

<![CDATA[New Hampshire Farm Lets You Do Yoga With Baby Goats]]> Wed, 19 Apr 2017 11:10:25 -0400 http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/200*120/Screen+Shot+2017-04-18+at+1.40.45+PM.png

The latest fitness trend might just convince some people to slap on yoga pants, especially if they love baby animals.

Jenness Farm in Nottingham, New Hampshire, has gotten a lot of attention after introducing yoga with baby goats as a part of their business a few weeks ago. The tiny goats are let loose while yoga students get into various yoga positions. 

The result is a mix of the relaxed mindfulness that yoga offers and some chaotic cuteness. 

Jenness Farm raises dairy goats for a variety of products, such as goat milk, soaps, and other bath and body items, but visitors have been able to get up-close-and-personal with the animals on their yoga mats for the past few weeks. 

Owner Peter Corriveau said many followers of the farm's Facebook page suggested he offer the yoga class after similar ones have been seen trending in other areas. He has run Jenness Farm since 2001 and knew that his goats would be perfect for the job since he bottle raises them himself.

“Goats are very intelligent and curious,” he said. “Within the first hour of their life they are up and walking around. They are very playful.”

The farm recruited local yoga instructor Janine Bibeau, a frequent visitor of Jenness Farm and a fellow goat-lover. The first few classes have been a big hit and presented a new way to bring in yoga newcomers.

“This is unlike any yoga that I’ve ever taught,” said Bibeau, “you can come into this room feeling tired or sad and you are going to leave a lot more joyous and energetic. After the last class that we taught, my face was sore from smiling the whole time.”

Bibeau has goats of her own, but they are a bit calmer than the hyperactive baby goats that like to jump on top of people while they pose. Her older goats will simply come up and cuddle while she practices her yoga. 

The energetic baby goats are a good representation of how chaotic life can get. Her students are challenged to remain mindful, but of course are encouraged to pet and play with the goats during the class.

Interest in the class has exploded since photos and video from the first few classes have gone viral on Facebook. There is already a long waiting list to get into a class, but Corriveau says that they are working on expanding the yoga area to let more people in at once. 

For more information on goat yoga at Jenness Farm you can visit their website here.

A tiny pizza place came up big again in Montgomery County's Best Pizza Tournament.

For the second-straight year, Chiaro's Pizzeria of Green Lane beat back all other pizza places to win the Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board's Best Pizza Tournament, a March Madness bracket that pitted some of the county's best pizzerias against one another to see which pie would reign supreme.

Chiaro's turned to Instagram to acknowledge everyone who helped them taste victory.

"We would like to thank everyone who participated in this wonderful friendly competition and to all the friends, customers, family and fellow competitors for making this a great community building experience," the pizzeria wrote in an overnight post.

Chiaro's didn't have an easy road to the top as they had many close battles leading up to the final against Angelo's Pizza of King of Prussia. A late push left Chiaro's with 52.2 percent of the final vote.

"When it comes to pizza, everyone has an opinion," the VFTC said on its website as it launched this year's tournament. "That's why every year we open it up to you to tell us your favorite pizza in Montgomery County."

Voting wrapped up as the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament wrapped up Monday night. In total, more than 285,000 votes were cast.

For winning, Chiaro's gets a one year membership on the Valley Forge Tourism Board; an official trophy; ad space in county dining guide, Crave; billboards and championship gear.

"Salt Bae" has landed in New York City. 

Two months after the man behind the meme announced plans to open a restaurant in the Big Apple, sightings of Turkish chef Nusret Gökçe around the city swept Instagram Wednesday.

"Spotted #SaltBae!!" one woman captioned her selfie with Gökçe in his signature sunglasses, shoulder-length hair and beard. 

"Dreams do come true," another Instagrammer wrote alongside a photo with the dramatic salter.  

Gökçe appeared to be taking a whirlwind tour of the city Wednesday. Star-struck fans tagged their pictures around Times Square, St. Patrick's Cathedral, near Central Park and the Upper West Side. 

Gökçe, 34, gained Internet fame when a video of him sprinkling salt on a steak with a peculiar flick of the wrist gained millions of views in a matter of weeks.

He announced plans in January to open a steakhouse in Manhattan. Gökçe, who already has seven steakhouses and burger joints in Turkey and Dubai, and is opening a London location later this year, said expanding to New York will mean whether or not he’s truly made it.

“It shows that I’m an international brand if I open up in New York,” Nusret previously told NBC News. 

“In New York, there are many steakhouses. We would like to show that Nusr-et is different than the others in service, meat quality and connection with the customers,” he added.

Somebody "Better Call Saul." 

Gus Fring's infamous chicken chain featured in the TV show "Breaking Bad" came to downtown Los Angeles this week. 

Fring's Albuquerque restaurant served as a headquarters for both his chicken and meth empires on AMC's critically-acclaimed series. 

Go inside a 360-degree view of the spot, see "Better Call Saul" actor Michael Mando, and hear the voice of "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan:

The pop-up restaurant near the Arts District featured Fring's famous curly fries on Wednesday and Thursday. 

The restaurant didn't actually serve a chicken dinner, but like DEA Agent Hank Schrader says on the show: "We're not here for the chicken." 

[[417728903, C]]

The real-life Los Pollos Hermanos will also pop-up in New York in April. The pop-up recently made a stop in Austin at SXSW where series stars Bob Odenkirk (who plays Saul Goodman) and Giancarlo Esposito (who starred as Gus Fring) signed autographs and greeted fans.

[[417382073, C]]

You can stop by the Pollos pop-up at 1345 E. 6th St. in downtown LA from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday. 

The third season of the "Breaking Bad" spin-off "Better Call Saul" premieres on AMC on April 10 at 10 p.m. EST.

UPDATE: Chiaro's Pizzeria of Green Lane looks to defend its crown against Angelo's Pizza of King of Prussia in the final match-up.


With the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament Field down to its final 4, the madness of deciding what is Montgomery County’s best pizza is down to four finalists.

Chiaro's Pizzeria of Green Lane is looking to defend its crown as it battles Bacco Italian Restaurant of North Wales in one semifinal match-up in Montco’s Best Pizza Tournament 2017. Angelo's Pizza of King of Prussia takes on Bravo Pizza of Worcester in the other pizza battle in the Final 4 of the Valley Forge Tourism & Convention Board's March Madness-like competition to determine the county's favorite pizza.

"When it comes to pizza, everyone has an opinion," the VFTC said on its website. "That's why every year we open it up to you to tell us your favorite pizza in Montgomery County."

Final 4 voting is open until midnight Wednesday in the second-annual tournament.

The winning pizzeria will get a one year membership on the Valley Forge Tourism Board; an official trophy; ad space in county dining guide, Crave; billboards and championship gear.

Chiaro's of Green Lane has not had an easy road to repeat as they sneaked past (less than two percent wins) Sal's Bravo Pizza of Limerick, Basta Pasta of Skippack and Penny's Pizza of Limerick in the past three rounds to earn its spot in the Final 4. Will Chiaro's reclaim its crown? Check back to find out.
