Excellent blues bars in Philadelphia

I'm looking for an excellent jazz/blues/blues-rock bar in Philly. Grizzled old guys on their guitars, grizzled old patrons, bad lighting, laid-back bartenders and a relaxed atmosphere with a little bit of room to sway if you're feeling it. If you've ever been to the Cat's Eye Pub in Baltimore, something like that. [more inside]

How should I promote my anti-Westboro Baptist Church fundraiser online?

Westboro Baptist Church is coming to my area this upcoming week and I've started an economic counter protest (through Facebook) with people pledging $1/minute to the Matthew Shepard Foundation for every minute they're here. We've raised over 35,000 dollars so far -- and now I'm trying to brainstorm how to get some major blog coverage so we can up our donation amount even further. [more inside]

Am I mistakenly assuming the worst about my landlord and my potentially shady gas bill?

Philly filter: Is my gas bill too high and/or is my landlord shady? We get charged a ton for "indirect" charges by a non-PGW company and must write our checks payable to the landlord, not the utility. I also pay the same amount every month, and am not enrolled in some budget plan that makes the amount due the same each month. Several residents (me included) think this is some sort of way for the landlord to rip us off. [more inside]

Where and what to do in Philadelphia

My wife and baby daughter will be going to Philadelphia in two weeks. We need to go to the Children's Hospital. Where do you recommend we stay, and what types of things should we do. I know nothing about Philadelphia, so I have no idea if it is walking and stroller friendly. We would just like to do some shopping, eating, sightseeing etc. We will be carting around a 7 month old girl. Help us have a good time in the city of brotherly love.

Maple Leaf Guitar Rag?

Many years ago, late one night in Philadelphia, I heard a cover of the Maple Leaf Rag that stunned me. I never found the artist, nor have I ever heard it again. I'm hoping the hivemind can help. It started out the traditional piano version, and then there was a pause... and it turned into a guitar rock version. I heard it on WMMR at about 1:30 AM in the late 1980s. HAs anyone ever heard of anything like it, and if so, who was the artist?
