Green Line co-owner Douglas Witmer here: We just received some terrible news that our friend Chip Dunahugh passed away suddenly yesterday in Santa Fe, NM. There literally would be no Green Line Cafe without Chip. In 2002 we were looking for a contractor to renovate the interior at 43rd and Baltimore. I knew of Chip through the Philly art world. Chip was a sculptor whose work was influenced by Matisse. He made his money around town doing carpentry and renovations. He and his wife (also an artist) lived in an amazing former industrial space under the Ben Franklin Bridge that Chip had completely renovated by himself into their home, studios, and several apartments. Their roof deck had the most unbelievable view of the river and the city. Chip's master plan was to sell that building and pretty much retire by age 40 so he could be an artist full-time the rest of his life. (The plan worked.) Chip himself was a presence. He kind of resembled He-Man with his big frame and shaggy blonde hair and square chin. For fun he played rugby. He liked good wine. He was from the midwest. He was very kind, but had a sort of gruff old-school no-nonsense air about him. He showed up everyday in a beat-up Subaru with his matching beat-up stainless steel travel mug that he never washed (because that would ruin the seasoning). He preferred to work alone, but tolerated Dan and me (he was pretty much my boss back then haha!). One of the most amazing things I have ever seen a human do was Chip lifting 4 x 8 foot sheets of 3/4-inch drywall while simultaneously climbing up a scaffold, in order to get to the Green Line's 12-foot ceiling, whereupon he balanced the entire sheet on his head, standing on his tiptoes to get it perfectly in position, and supporting it with one hand while he attached drywall screws with the other! Fire code required there to be 2 layers of 3/4" drywall on the entire ceiling...let that sink in. RIP Chip. You're special. chipdunahughsantafenm.weebly.com/ ... See MoreSee Less

LUV THIS! #Reposting @robs10kfriends -- 660. "I like to tell my best friend, 'The way you date people, I've dated cities." After graduating college, Becca Bernstein lived in Chicago (her home city), NYC, D.C. and now Philly. Though she's spent several years away from home, Becca made frequent visits to Chicago to visit her mom, who had been diagnosed with ALS and FTD (frontotemporal dementia). Sadly, Becca's mom passed away last November, but one of the possessions she left to Becca was her journal from a trip she had taken to Europe. To honor her mom, Becca will be taking that same trip this summer with important people from her life joining her at different legs along the way. She'll also be logging her thoughts in a journal (given to her by her sister) very similar to her mom's with prompts like "take a picture with all the people mom would have liked in this city." Such a great way to remember your mom and hope you have a blast on the trip, @bernstei1! #10kfriends #philly #chicago #mom #daughter #eurotrip #journal #family #meetingpeople
How we met: Becca was introduced to my project via her girlfriend and then DM'ed me to meet! #greenlinepeople @bernstei1 ... See MoreSee Less
