Contractors’ employees this week are finishing the cleanup of a Frankford property they demolished last week. The house at 4712 Worth St. had been listed as “imminently dangerous” by the Department of Licenses and Inspections since after it was damaged in a fire in July 2013. Neighbors had complained the building should be torn down, and a city contractor began that work — by hand — on July 21. The property’s owner, a Florida man, will be billed $34,000.

Not quite Latin American cuisine, Brazilian food is a blend of European, African, Native Indian and Japanese influences. Brazil’s national beverage is coffee, and its most popular cocktail is the Caipirinha, made from cachaca (Brazilian rum), lime and sugar. Brazilian cuisine has yet to have its moment in the sun in the Philadelphia area. But with the World Cup and the upcoming Olympics being held in Brazil, we may be tasting more of their foods— including octopus.
