Philadelphia Freedom

Friday afternoon, we arrived via Amtrak to Philadelphia. We spent a majority of the weekend touring the sights - The Liberty Bell, Independence Hall, Betsy Ross House, University of Pennslyvania, The Art Museum, and The Rodin Museum. We had some excellent culinary adventures in Philly with a variety of people.

Friday afternoon we snacked at the Reading Terminal. That evening, we joined my boss and his wife at Seafood Unlimited which was very good. After that we headed to the Rum Bar. Saturday we met up with PS and JP for Brunch at Jones. Brunch turned into a few beers at Nodding Head Brewery, which turned into some more cocktails at The Plough and The Stars which turned into dinner at Continental. It was fun hanging out with them all day.

Sunday we met Old MD Girl and her husband for bunch at White Dog Cafe. It was also very delicious and fun. Sunday evening we met up with my colleague and friend, BCK, for dinner at the Black Sheep Pub, cocktails at Rum Bar and the Continetnal.

Monday it was time for work, attending a conference. Monday night we and a bunch of my collegues ate at Cuba Libre, which was also great. Tuesday I met up with AB and her daughter AB for some coffee. I had fun playing with Katie and Mary AB's dolls :) We had lunch at Morimoto that day, which Nate was really excited about since he is a fan of Iron Chef. The food was really yummy.

Tuesday night, BCK and her mom joined us and we headed to Pat's for Cheesesteaks and to Franklin Fountain for Ice Cream. Wednesday morning I gave my presentation and we were off to the airport, our luggage a little heavier than it was when we left MKE. I think we might have been a few pounds heavier too thanks to Philly :)
