Hi all

In my mind I have prepared for Philly already (I’m flying tomorrow), but reality is less pretty. Instead of a packed bag I have a pile of laundry to sort through. Several Convention Cards but not the right ones. And I’m trying to figure out what to wear when it’s hot & humid outside, and bone-chilling cold in the playing arena. Wonderful!

So besides hosting the Summer NABC this year, I understand Philadelphia is known for steaks on sandwiches, something with independence and the constitution in the 1700s, brotherly love and Fairmount Park. Do share some more Philadelphia highlights when you see me. Or just drop by to say hi, I’d like that.

Not totally unprepared… In this bar they supposedly offer “Gulden Draak” from tap. Yummie!

  1. Steaks on sandwhiches? I assume you are talking about Cheese Steak sandwhiches. (In Philly, if it is called a Philly Cheese Steak, it is not authentic.)

    While the meat is beef, and it might technically be considered steak, it is a cheaper cut if beef that is cut into small pieces and cooked on a flat top. Traditionally the cheese is Cheese Whiz, although you can often get it with Provelone. Onions are optional. It’s one of the reasons I moved from Philly. (just kidding)

    I look forward to the bridge in Philly. Getting togerther with my favorite partner from the time I lived there. Seeing old friends.

  2. I actually went to that bar. Good beer, and food, but take $$ as it’s not exactly a cheap place.
