Lately I've been watching a lot of It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia. It's a great show. If you've been watching this past season, you'll probably get the reference in the title of this post. Anyway, while watching a recent episode I started to think about how that in my 25 years of life I had yet to take the 3 and a half hour drive to Philly, so I decided it was time to make my way down.
I had limited time so I made sure to visit all the "must-see" historical spots in the city – Independence Hall, the Liberty Bell, the "Great Essentials", the Betsy Ross House, and the City Tavern where I enjoyed some colonial style venison meatloaf and a pint of Thomas Jefferson's "Tavern Ale".
It was just two days after a major snowstorm blew through the area and the streets were a slushy mess, so I decided to cut things short and skipped out on the required Philly Cheese-steak at Genos and my plans visit to Eastern State Penitentiary. Next time around.
