Jeez, it’s hot out! We think you should stay indoors– those pit stains don’t match your pants.
Yesterday, we tried getting out of bed. We couldn’t. We wrote Summer Street instead.
Monday brought Playlist of the Week (workout style). Today, Street shows you how to swim, bike and run in Philadelphia like you’re the iron man himself. Pick it up on stands.
You couldn’t think that’s all! We’ve also got a review of the PMA’s Visions of Arcadia exhibit (it’s, like, so rapturous — which is a word from the thesaurus), a Street Burger Shakedown between Bobby’s and Shake Shack, and oh so much more.
Oh yeah. Write for us. We’ve got the A/C, because Street loves you.
Hand over the ketchup, because Travel + Leisure just named Philly the second best burger city in America, as uwishunu reports. Yes, that’s right–our meat-hungry mecca is NUMBER TWO in the country–second only to Providence, RI. While we may not have a staple chain of burger places (In-N-Out, Jack in the Box…does McDonald’s count?), T+L appears to fancy the fancier side of our city’s sandwiches:
Perhaps some thanks is due to celebrity chef Jose Garces, who tops his eight-ounce Angus burgers at Village Whiskey, off Rittenhouse Square, with maple bourbon–glazed cipollini, Rogue blue cheese, or foie gras.
So go ahead and shed a tear for that leftover cheesesteak in your mini fridge; we hear eight ounces of quality beef sandwiched between two toasted buns can put a smile on anyone’s face.
