Did you guys know that Philly cheese steak is not (as I had previously suspected) a steak with cheese melted on top of it – but a type of sandwich!? Yes. Fact.
I spent five days in Philly with a good friend who’s just moved there and we spent most of our time doing friend-specific, rather than Philly-specific stuff.
In our case, this meant:
* Eating lots of potato chips with sour cream-based dips
* Watching live bluegrass music
* Eating a lot of fake bacon
* Curating 8 million inside jokes
* Drinking whiskey cokes
However! We did find time for more tourist-y things. Eastern State Penitentiary
(awesome, creepy and worth every cent of your admission fee). Opera in the park (Carmen is a scandal, yo.) The Rocky statue (yup. it’s there.) Reading Terminal Market
(pretzels and whoopie pies!) and ogling a gajillion murals.
And on a vaguely related note: Am I the only person on the internet who doesn’t like It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia? They’re so mean!
Next up, DC! Any advice?
