"You've never had a cheesesteak??" my boyfriend exclaimed, as if it was a rite of passage and not solely a Philly delicacy. Thus the executive decision was made that I would have to have a cheesesteak in my short time there. The opportunity arose that night on our way back from the Jimmy Buffett concert in Camden (go ahead, laugh). After consuming more than a few Landsharks, we were pretty hungry for something greasy and carb-filled. When we pulled up next to Pat's Steaks (one of the famed Philly Cheesesteak establishments) we all looked at each other and agreed it was happening. I was warned that I "wouldn't be able to finish the whole thing", that challenge was accepted and completed. Next order of business is seeing how Gino's matches up...
The Philadelphia Museum of Art was high on my list of things to see. While I would have loved to go inside and actually view the art, we were on a time constraint because of the concert. We did walk around the museum grounds where we took a cheesy picture with the Rocky Balboa Statue, and watched tourists run up the "Rocky steps", which are actually the steps to the museum.

Until next time, Philly!
