First, Kristen speaks with Kathy Jordan, founder of Green Street Rescue, a Philadelphia cat adoption center and the owner of Philly’s first cat café – Le Cat Café, located at 2713 West Girard Avenue. Acting as the adoption branch of Green Street Rescue, Le Cat Café allows patrons to sip coffee, tea or hot chocolate while spending time with the up to 12 cats at the café, as they roam freely throughout the space. Pay by the hour to cuddle with the kitties, take part in a class or activity hosted at the café, or best of all – perhaps find your new furry family member. Find more information on Green Street Rescue HERE, and more on Le Cat Café HERE. Meow!

Marilyn’s segment is all about WINE!  She speaks with Jim Jenks, President of the Bucks County Wine Trail, and Joseph Maxian, co-owner of Sand Castle Winery.  They speak about 2 wine events coming up called Spring Tour South & Spring Tour North.  Each of the nine Bucks County wineries will pair their wines with complementary food during the Southern Tour (May 15 self-guided visits to five wineries) and a Northern Tour (May 22 self-guided visits to four wineries). Attendees have traveled from Philadelphia and New Jersey to sample the wine trail’s offerings paired with cheeses, chocolates and other scrumptious fare.  Each winery is paired with a high-end food vendor.  More info, click HERE.

Finally, the Kentucky Derby takes place today – Saturday, May 7th, and Kristen speaks with Deborah Cassidy and Priyanka Setty of West Laurel Hill Cemetery about the best place to watch it live! Put on your sundress and grab your floppy hats and head to West Laurel Hill Cemetery in Bala Cynwyd for their annual West Laurel Hill Derby Party to benefit Hope Springs Equestrian Therapy, today from 4:30-7:30pm. Watch the race and enjoy live music, mint juleps, food, desserts and more. Find out more about the party HERE, and learn more about Hope Springs Equestrian Therapy and their mission HERE.
