We made it to Philadelphia on our route home and wanted to eat some place fancy and absolutely Philly - we enjoyed a walk around the neighborhood and I thought this billboard was funny - couldn’t resist. Btw, these night shots were taken with the little point and shoot - it did not do as good as I had hoped but. . .
Bravo for facebook keeping me in contact with my peeps (is that outdated?) Alisha quickly offered up a perfect suggestion! Pat‘s King of Steaks makes the best Philadelphia Steak Sandwiches - not that I’m really an expert as I have never had one before - nor since. But I did gobble up the sammich right away!
Now Haden loves Philly-cheese-sandwiches and he ate TWO!
A nice little bonus - I had forgotten all about the scene with Rocky (Sylvester Stallone) eating here!
When Alisha requested I take a photo of the sign on How to Order I had no clue why. But I quickly learned when I got there. If you do it wrong you HAVE to get to the back of the line! And the place is VERY busy - so you don’t want to mess up! 'Wit-out Plain Please'
The next morning we got up early and walked all over downtown Philly! We spent about 5 hours touring many places and seeing SO many sights that it will take many posts to share them all - but we’re nearing the end of the journey.
HAD to see the Rocky statue while we were there! It’s a requirement!
Makes you want to watch the movie again - doesn’t it?
Near the statue you will find the stairs - and the museum and a GREAT view of downtown!
It rained a little that morning, which really made it easier to see the letters.
I enlisted Haden’s help to show that the footprints are life-sized - and Sy has small feet!
However, I wish Dennis had snapped a photo of my contortionist position while I was snapping. This is how it looked in the camera.
