Maurice Bennett gets married, hard to believe it's been a decade since he took the field? Like so many others, he's done well.

Ed Kaminski '66 went to Neshaminy. Is he in the Lafayette Hall of Fame ? He should be. He was the shortstop on the great Charlie Gelbert teams of that era. I wonder if he is in the Neshaminy HOF. I knew of him in High School and was surprised to find him at Lafayette when I got there.Does anyone know ?

He's not in.
Unfortunately Neshaminy is now known for the chest-banging ex-basketball coach.

Unrelated, a decent story once you filter out the jargon, about black male students at Lafayette and elsewhere.

Ed Kaminski is a very good guy.  He was the 2nd Baseman on the 65 College World Series Team.  Hall of Famer Walt Manual was the SS, and the best player on the team.  Pitchers Preston Denby and Don Lordon are deservedly in the LC HoF.

The Tiffany exhibit at Williams is worthwhile, part of a pleasant evening on campus today followed by a meal at Sette Luna. The exhibit is open until 5 usually and until 8 on Thursdays though it's best to check.

Also for Catholics or anybody who enjoys the outdoors and a quiet place, try
Www.wafusa.org.

About 10 miles from campus with two main buildings and lots of trails. Right off 31, not far from 78 and open 9-3 or later in season. Worth a stop particularly for those coming in from northeast/NYC metro area. It's a scenic middle-of-nowhere shrine and open space. The site doesn't quite reflect how scenic it is.

I'm not Catholic, my wife is, and we both like this place. Wide open and low-key.

Free. Quiet. Scenic. What more could somebody want?

A young man from Lafayette competed on the college edition of "Chopped" on the food network earlier this week.  Not sure if anyone else watches, but "Chopped" is I believe still the highest rated show on the network.

The young man is a member of DKE, and they had some nice shots of the college in the intro, and some clips of him cooking in the brand new DKE kitchen.  He came in second place on the show, beating out students from Rutgers and Columbia, which is the best performance of the year for someone wearing Lafayette maroon.

Is there a link to the episode online?

Drew Friedman is the young man's name.  Wanted to give him credit.  I did a quick check, and didn't see the episode online.  It may be available on demand.

It give me great satisfaction to see a Deke Brother doing well.  My wife is a real foodie and she taped his show on Chopped for me to see.

Impromptu and brief Lafayette - Lehigh drinks at Butterfield8 on E. 38th. Brief but if there make yourself known!
I am buying every 14th round.
Butterfield8 btw isn't just a movie. It's the site of the old Stickley furniture building. A proponent of the Craftsman movement. I have one of the old chairs. Basic stuff but lasts forever.

Forget it ... Private party tonight at B8. WTF? At some Irish place on 38th. Big Nova crowd.
We're still celebrating that 1972 NIT win. Go Pards!

Adjourned to Harry's. Time running out.

The Easton Public Market is a good addition to downtown. Packed today. More of a food court and expensive market than a farm market. The old farm market will remain. I must wonder if many residents particularly to the west side will shop here but it's bringing people downtown.
The long-promised revival of Easton has actually happened over the last few years. Dam though a lot of people in this town smoke.
Without Lafayette, Easton might have decline to the level of some of the old coal-region towns. Things are looking up.

We just got back from Florida we'll check it out! I agree Easton has a lot of great things going on with its Awesome restaurants. Love the Fish market restaurant, Sette Luna and others.
