Going to Philly for a long weekend in early November and staying near Center City.

Anything anyone would recommend in the way of a nice place to eat nearby?
My hand to God, she's gonna be at Carnegie Hall. But you - I'll let you have her now at the old price, OK? Which is, which is anything you wanna give me. Anything at all.

Try and get to the Reading Terminal Market. Many places to choose from. Friends recommend it to me. Philly is a strange town. Goes from fantastic to shit in about a block.
Can't help you with restaurants. There is an area near the waterfront that was brought back as well as some hipsterfied areas making a comeback. Stay away from the Badlands area...

I can't remember the names of the places my wife and I found, but check out South Street. It's not too far from Center City, and it's got probably anything you'll want.

90 minutes away is Lancaster county. I'd go there. And visit Intercourse.

And Climax.

Truly, Lancaster county is an interesting place to visit, especially if you can go outside of summer when droves of tourists clog everything.

In order to get to Paradise most go through Intercourse but sometimes after going through Intercourse you end up in Fertility. Some people skip Intercourse and end up in Virginville or Blueball.

I bet those Amish folks would be a blast to party with.

Where's Manny and Mose Yoder when you need them?
By using the El Dorado Atmospheric and Oceanic temperatures thermal map. I caculated the contrary direction where the polar jet stream is going and it didn't look pretty.

I will recommend one place that is above all others in Philadelphia, http://www.johnsroastpork.com/. I almost cried when I ate there. Cash only, a little out of down town, but very much worth the trip.

I have limited personal history with Amish, but I've spent a lot of time with their close cousins the Mennonites. The theology is similar and the worldview is very damn close, but Mennonites drive and use electricity. The crowd that I know are family through my mother's side, folk mostly in the thumb, Indiana, Maryland, and Pennsylvania, and almost to a person they are a hoot. They love to get together with the entire family, even the outliers like us strays from the city who've mingled blood with non-brethren. They don't drink and they don't smoke but the parties are a blast. Pie and fried chicken stand in for the beers that you'd normally have. The humor can be pretty ribald and, with only a little warning, groups will almost spontaneously burst into song or harmonizing. All in all I have a lot more fun with this family than I do with plenty of people who serve beer and don't have a problem saying "motherfucker" in casual conversation.

I tore out the front porch today and found a blue and white porcelain street sign for 27th Street. I can't find any info. on this color scheme, but 27th seems to have been renamed McKinley in 1910 or 1930. Modern-day McKinley is a bit far away for this neck of the woods, so I suspect that the Boulevard was once 27th/McKinley, but I can't find a time line for the different stretches of the Boulevard.

Anyone know anything?

I don't ever remember Detroit having Blue and White street signs. Green and white, black and white, but not blue.
And as far as I can tell, Grand Blvd was always Grand Blvd since Pingree approved the layout. From the Detroit River, around the city, and back to the River.
Can you take a pic? I'd love to see it

I found a street atlas of 1885. I didn't consider that 27th Street (which did become Grand Boulevard more or less) wasn't in Detroit. It was in Springwells Township, the boundary of which was a block over. So, it appears I have a Springwells street sign.

From what I can tell, Grand Boulevard was created in fits and starts, from Belle Isle to the west side.

If you can tell me how to post a pic, I can do it. Or, send me a message with your email address, and I'll send it to you.
