Get Some Brotherly Love…

Thanks to Hotwire and crazy cheap airline tickets, I’m heading to Philadelphia in just a few short hours after booking a flight this afternoon! I will be visiting Mac, my personal knitting guru, and hopefully I’ll be able to hook up with some of the other people in the area. How fabulous is that? I can’t WAIT! Considering my flight leaves Houston at 6:00 am, I’m heading out at about 4:30 … just 4 hours from now. Whee!

I will confess, I wanted to go to Boston and L.A. also, but Jenn is in the midst of moving and wrapping up things at work, and Christina has obligations for the weekend. So in the end, Philadelphia won out. I’m so excited though – I love visiting new places, I’ve always wanted to go to Philly, and there is all that historical stuff there. Oh, and the high temp for tomorrow is supposed to be 64 with 30% humidity. It’s already 103 degrees with 274% humidity here in Houston.

Keep an eye on the Flickr sidebar – I’m sure I’ll be moblogging photos! It looks like there is definitely a lot to see. Have any tips on places I should try to be sure to see? I doubt we will do museums or anything like that, but if there is a “you can’t MISS this” spot, let me know.

Everyone play nice while I’m gone – remember, it’s all about the brotherly love!

South Street, the Reading Terminal Market, Italian Market, ChinaTown, hrmmm, the Art Museum (Don’t forget to hum the Rocky theme while you hike the steps).. and of course the mandatory cheese steak at Pats or Ginos. Hrmmmm It’s been a while since I’ve been to Philly myself – and I only live an hour or so from there.

Have a safe trip…wish I would have known you were coming earlier, there’s an awesome yarn shop in Harrisburg I could have sent you to 🙂

there are 3 great yarn shops right in Center City:
Sophie’s at 12th and Pine
Rosie’s at 19th and Locust (i think)
and Loop (my personal favorite) on South Street between 20th and 21st.

Enjoy the city! (ps my favorite place to get a cheese steak is Jim’s on (3rd and) South Street… (Cheese) Whiz Steak with Mushrooms, Onions, Ketchup and Mayo. Sounds gross, but is simply delightful!)
