never get old!
Food in Philly was on point, but much to the disappointment of Everyone (!) I didn’t eat a Philly Cheesesteak.
I did eat a great pork sandwich at Dinic’s in Reading Terminal Market and a elegant (and supremely buttery) roast chicken at my hotel. Truthfully (sadly) there wasn’t much time to seek out great eats. I always leave a reason to return…(food, mostly to eat more food).
Blue Star donuts: forget Voodoo Doughnuts and their longline, Blue Star is where it’s at!
Sour beers: so much fun to drink with friends. We’ve spent the last two weekends sampling sour beers, a new world to me! Cascade was a nice stop in Portland.
The Portland vibe: it was low-key, relaxed and interesting with exceptionally nice people!
Mendoza: huge wine pours, blue skies and warm weather, great food…swoon!
